Since the eighties Astroboy has been re-released on video and everyone can see the show after it's long absence from television, for many years. Siren Entertainment has released ten volumes of Astroboy, each consisting of three episodes. Tapes sell for about 20 dollars US. That's thirty episodes in total but that isn't all of them.
Astroboy has an unforgettable theme song and the best introduction for a cartoon. Rather than just showing clips from the episodes like most cartoons do, it has original animation and shows astro in action. The lyrics are simple but work really well.
Have you ever noticed how Astro's face and head are quite similar to that of Mickey Mouse. They have the same black bit, Astro with pointy hair rather than round ears. They both have big eyes, same sized mouth but very different noses. And of course the skin colour for the face. Some people think that Sega got their Sonic the Hedgehog character from Astroboy. I would definately agree on that point.
