Brilliant scientist Dr Tenma is devastated when his young son is killed during an experiment, and tries to create a robotic version of the boy, but abandons him when he fails to meet his expectations. Left to fend for himself, the robot becomes Astro Boy, with a range of useful powers, including the ability to fire bullets from his backside. And when he becomes embroiled in a plot to exploit a new source of energy, Astro Boy must use all of his gifts to defeat the forces of evil.
