Astro Boy is a Japanese manga series and television program first broadcast in Japan from 1963 to 1966.

Astro Boy is the first Japanese television series that embodied the aesthetic that later became familiarized as anime. It originated as a manga in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, who is often reputed as the “god of manga”. After enjoying success abroad, Astro Boy was remade in the 1980s as Shin Tetsuwan Atomu, known as Astroboy in the United States and other Western countries, and again in 2003. In November 2007, he was named Japan’s envoy for overseas safety. [via wikipedia]
