In the year 2000 AD, the brilliant scientist Dr. Boynton, grief-stricken over the death of his son, Astor Boynton, III, in an automobile accident, decides to create a super-robot in Astor’s image. He calls the robot Astro Boy. Astro Boy can swim oceans, leap over mountains, even fly into space on his own power! When Astro Boy fails to grow, however, Dr. Boynton, disappointed at having created an imperfect machine, disowns the youngster and the robot promptly falls into a series of misadventures. He is saved only by the arrival of Dr. Packadermus J. Elefun, who becomes his friend, conscience, and legal guardian throughout the remainder of the series.
