Astro Boy Episode 21 - The Liar Robot

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement...

This week in the Basement I am still focused on the Astro Boy Greatest Astro Adventure DVD, and this week I'm going over 'The Liar Robot'... aka Astro Boy's take on The Boy Who Cried Wolf! 




WATCH THE EPISODE BELOW




ADDITIONAL NOTES
  • Something I did not mention was that 'True' looks very much like Mega Man, who wouldn't come along for over 5 years
  • 'True's' helicopter blades being able to cut through trees and a mountain is impressive, how many of these robots are there?
  • Seriously, Astro Boy's origins involve him dying in a car crash, and the reason for 'True' lying is because of a tragic automobile accident? Is there something about late 1970s traffic in Japan I don't know about?
  • The scene where 'True' gets attacked by the towns folk is so unintentionally funny because of how unbelievably violent it is
