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!
- 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
