One Million Mammoth Snails Jan 21, 1963 Professor Nutty Fruitcake, living alone in his secluded mountain observatory, has taken to a unique hobby: growing giant fruits and vegetables. When the novelty of giant watermelons and tangerines wears thin, the Professortakes to breeding giant animals - in particular, giant snails. Snails, he reasoned, always seemed such placid creatures. And so they were...until they grew to be giants! Exactly one million mammoth snails - count ‘em - one million spawned from the bed of eggs in Professor Fruitcake's oversized incubator! En masse, they crawled from their overcrowded mountaintop and surged toward the helpless cities below! Army, Navy, Marines - all were powerless to stop the onslaught. One boy, one little robot boy, armed with nothing more than a bag full of chemicals, finally succeeded where all others failed. The robot boy, of course, was Astro Boy. The bag of chemicals that stopped the fresh-water snails in their tracks was NaCI. Salt! Common table salt.

The Spirit Machine Feb 18, 1963 It finally happened in the little mid-European land called Shangri-Lee. An absolute dictator rose to power. Rudolph Hatter (his enemies called him Mad Hatter) was ruthless. Like other madmen before him, he sought to rule the world. He trusted no one; needed to do everything himself; tried to be in all places at all times! To lead the army, while commanding the navy, while remaining behind to run things, Rudolph Hatter needed to be at least 3 men, if not more. And so he commanded his scientists to build a machine that would produce duplicate Hatters; a sort of Spirit Machine that could turn out carbon copies of the dictator, all endowed with his invincible spirit. Since Hatter’s own scientists were unequal to the task, Hatter's secret agents kidnapped Doctor Elefun and spirited him to Shangri-Lee. With Doctor Elefun gone, Astro Boy leaped onto the case. His assignment: rescue Doctor Elefun, smash the Spirit Machine, and do something about a bewildering array of Mad Hatters!

Time Machine Mar 11, 1963 One day, excitable Mr. Pompous was relaxing at home when suddenly a mysterious ship crashed through his front door. Clearly the ship was something from the future. A door opened and out stepped a boy in strange garb. His was not a space ship from another planet, he announced, it was a Time Machine from the 23rd Century! The boy was Teddy Tyme and had come searching for his Father. The shame of it: his Father was a brilliant scientist, who had perfected a Time Machine not for Good, but for Evil; for the man was using the machine to travel back to prehistoric times. From each age, he would seize plants, animals-even primitive people! - then place them on display for profit in his own era! Shocked at hearing the story, Mr. Pompous and Astro Boy decide to join Teddy in his travel back through time. They hurtle backward through the eons, back at last to the Ice Age. Here they are ambushed by a curious tribe of tailed human beings, who take them prisoner. Here, too, they meet Teddy’s greedy Father.

To solve the problem, Astro Boy traveled to the South Pacific, hid upon the island, and observed. Imagine his shock to learn that the genius who created the artifiCial sun was none other than his guardian, Doctor Elefun! Elefun had built the device years before to be used as a prop in a Belial South-Seas extravaganza! Natives of the island, beholding the-splendid creation began worshipping it as their ”sun god.” Soon, Belial realized that he could exploit the artificial sun as far more than a movie prop!

Hullabaloo Land / Robot Land Apr 22, 1963 No amusement park in the world-in the universe, for that matter-could compare with the one called Hullabaloo Land." Here was a child's Dream World: Everything from Hansel and Gretel’s tiny cottage in the enchanted forest to King Arthur’s mighty castle at Camelot! "Hul Ia baloo Land” was the creation of Doctor Magico, a mechanical wizard. What no child, and certainly no adult, ever suspected was that kindly old Doctor Magico was actually a power-mad scientist plotting to take over the world! What appeared to the visitor as a fairy tale castle was in reality an arsenal wherein Doctor Magico built weapons of destruction! Astro Boy and his guardian, Doctor Elefun, following a hunch, decide one day to visit Doctor Magico in his castie. Astro Boy discovers the Wizard's secret workshop-only to be discovered himself by Doctor Magico and his robot dragon, Firesnout!

Gangor the Monster Apr 29, 1963 In the year 2000, there were robots aplenty. Since human beings no longer worked, there was a wide assortment of robots, big and little, fat and thin, tall and short, to perform every conceivable menial task. But nowhere was there a robot like Gangor, the Monster. Created by the arch-criminal Patch, Gangor was actually a gang of robots - 47 robots rolled up in one! By day, these robots walked the streets as a group of helpful machines. By night, and under orders from Patch, they linked together, one behind the other, to form a seemingly endless chain - a mechanical centipede capable of executing the most monstrous crimes! For once it seemed that even Astro Boy himself might have met his match. In a thrilling battle at the bottom of the sea, Astro Boy challenges one of the most cunning monsters ever invented!
S01 E19May 6, 1963
The Cosmic Giant May 6, 1963 The plan might have worked, had not a giant robot-lying in disassembled form-been discovered by Doctor Elefun and Astro Boy. Instructions for assembly were found upon the monster robot, instructions written in a code like none on Earth. Thanks to Astro Boy’s computer-like mind, the code was quickly deciphered. It proved to be a secret message issued to an Earthling posing as a friend of Humanity (when in reality he was an undercover agent for the invading forces!) Exposing the agent was only half the task. Astro Boy was forced to grapple with the assembled monster - a cosmic giant too formidable for even Astro Boy to tackle! In a brilliant stroke of logic, Astro Boy tricked the monster into reversing the Earth's specific gravity - a feat that sent the giant careening back into space and kept the planet free for humanity.

Toxor, the Mist Man May 13, 1963 When early American astronauts reported seeing "fireflies" in space, they posed a riddle that intrigued men of science for decades. In the year 2000, the intrepid Doctor Bolt - astronomer, adventurer, astronaut ~ decided to investigate on his own. Soon after entering orbit, he spotted the mysterious fireflies and attempted to capture some in a special chamber of his capsule. Suddenly, the chamber began to grow cloudy! Doctor Bolt's brain began to burn. The cosmic "fireflies" were not fireflies at all, but a horde of Mist Men hovering in space, awaiting just such an opportunity. Our atmosphere prevented them from entering directly, but when borne by a human host, they could come to Earth, invade men's minds, and so conquer the planet! Doctor Bolt returned to Earth a man possessed: soon after, important men from all walks of life found themselves possessed too and forced to perform evil acts that threatened public safety! All seemed doomed until a Mist Man attempted to seize control of Astro Boy. The Mist Man had never encountered a robot before, and so was unaware that Astro Boy’s mind was impervious to attack. Listening to the Mist Man within, Astro Boy soon learned the details of the plan for conquest. With the help of Doctor Elefun, the Institute of Science, and a specially designed vacuum cleaner, Astro Boy dispels the Mist Men and sends them back to outer space.
S01 E21May 20, 1963
Satellite R-45 May 20, 1963 Space stations are nothing new in the year 2000. A number of them dot the Milky Way between here and Andromeda, like floating islands in the sky. One of the largest is Satellite R45, a way station for trans-galaxy flights. Ships from every part of the Milky Way moor at R-45’s massive Spaceports. Interplanetary travelers stay at ultra-modern hotels and exotic wares from all over the universe are sold in exclusive shops. When Astro Boy arrives one day, he discovers a pair of fumbling souvenir vendors hawking stolen wares! A bit of ingenious sleuthing reveals that the fumblers are actually tools of the Master Smuggler, Trickum, a local hotel owner who tries in vain to force the resignation of Cronipuss Good heart, President of Satellite R-45. If Trickum himself should become President, he could turn the satellite into an enormous trading-post for stolen goods. Here, Astro Boy's computer- like mind, rather than his great strength, saves the day... and R-45!
S01 E22May 27, 1963
Sea Serpent Isle May 27, 1963 Sitting alone at the beach one day, watching wave after wave break on the lonely sand, Astro Boy spotted a mysterious bottle being washed ashore. The bottle proved to contain a note calling for help and rescue from a dreaded but unknown, uncharted island called Sea Serpent Isle. The note was signed ”Princess Papaya Petal." Doctor Elefun knew nothing of Sea Serpent Isle other than that many ocean liners in recent days had disappeared after reporting sightings of giant sea serpents. And these disappearances always occurred in the same region, although there were no islands in that particular part of the ocean. Astro Boy's investigations over and under the water revealed that there was indeed an island-not a natural one, but a man-made base that, like a submarine, could appear or disappear at will. Giant tentacles shaped like sea-serpents attacked ships at sea: pirated the ship’s cargo, then forced the passengers to work at hard labor upon the "island." Astro Boy himself was captured. Taken to the base "hospital,” he met Princess Papaya Petal...and devised a plan for escape. Prisoners were sent floating to safety within giant laboratory bottles while Astro Boy himself set out to stop the men and machines behind the threat of ”Sea Serpent Isle.”

The Deadly Flies Jun 3, 1963 A mysterious epidemic grips the city! Everywhere, men and women drop suddenly into a nameless coma. What causes the affliction? Scientists are baffled by the disease! Even gifted Doctor Elefun of the famed Institute of Science is at a loss until Astro Boy-quite by accident-discovers a strange species of horse-fly near the names of various victims. His hunch proves correct: the flies are mutants-deadly cousins of the common house fly, made poisonous by exposure to atomic radiation. But what Astro Boy himself failed to realise at first, was that the lethal little insects were actually being bred by a ruthless master criminal whose dreams of power would proceed unchecked, unless an enemy could be found who was immune to the bite of the flies. Astro Boy becomes that enemy. To wipe out the breeding ground ofthe flies, Astro Boy must battle a formidable array of robot guards.
S01 E24Jun 10, 1963
Kingdom of the Sea Jun 10, 1963 There was laughter when a strange-looking, almost sinister robot swathed in a trenchcoat confronted Astro Boy and Doctor Elefun, demanding that they accompany him to an unknown kingdom at the bottom of the sea. Intrigued by the prospect of it, Doctor Elefun persuades Astro Boy into joining him and the robot. Soon they are hurtling in a peculiar ship straight toward the bottom of the ocean where lo and behold- a magnificent city of the future rises, splendid and shining beneath a great glass dome! The visitors from Earth are dumbfounded, until they realise the purpose of the visit. The city is inhabited entirely by robots - robots who believe they created themselves; who believe that they are perfect and are dedicated to wiping out the animalistic human beings that people the continents above! Why have they brought Astro Boy here? To show him that he was created to be nothing more than a tool for his selfish masters; to convince him that he should join their great crusade to destroy the menace of humanity! Astro Boy's attempts to reason with the robots prove futile! At last he proposes a contest; a personal contest between him, the pinnacle of human art and science, and the greatest robot his self-made adversaries have to offer. It's agreed. Several tests for intelligence and creativity are staged. When Astro Boy wins each one, his powerful opponent seeks to destroy him until the bottom dweller learns that he was created not by robots, but by a man, and that he is really a robot bomb!

S01 E26Jun 24, 1963
Don Tay's Infernal Machine Jun 24, 1963 It was perhaps natural that Don Tay should hate civilization. After all, were not his ancestors simple, hard~working peons, captured and exploited by the cruel conquistadors? Don Tay had sworn his revenge...and how was ready to make civilization pay for its greed with the help of Ferno, a robot capable of generating unbearable heat. Ferno could melt the fortress-like walls of the Institute of Science; could sear through steel vaults and seize secret scientific data; could ignite a dormant volcano and send molten lava plunging toward the city below! Stopping Ferno would become a Herculean task for Astro Boy, who was faced with the need to battle the robot, throttle the volcano, save the city and Don Tay - at the same time! Powerful as he is, not even Astro Boy could have accomplished the impossible Without the help of resourceful Doctor Elefun and an ingenious freezing device.
S01 E27Jul 1, 1963
Pearl People Jul 1, 1963 Time after time, mysterious forces destroy the huge underwater dam being built by the Institute of Science. Why should anyone wish to destroy it? How do these forces create the irresistible whirlpool that no dam in the world could withstand? Astro Boy's underwater investigation unearths a surprise; the whirlpool is created by an enormous bed of oysters! Not Earth-bound oysters, but oysters that traveled here from a doomed planet. Trouble at home meant destruction of that planet; and so the oysters - actually a kind of flying saucer operated by tiny Pearl Men who lived Within - had migrated to our waters, closest to their Own. All they wanted to do was rest on the ocean bottom until they could return to their own planet, but the constant construction noise from the dam site kept them awake. And so every time the noise became too great, the Pearl People agitated the water into a Whirlpool. Astro Boy learns the simple explanation too late to stop the barrage of Starfish Depth Charges from above. All his persuasive skill and unabridged strength are required to abort the attack and launch the Pearl People safely on their long voyage home.

The Wacky Machine Jul 8, 1963 Professor I. Q. Plenty startled a group of greedy plant owners by announcing that he had perfected the very thing they were seeking: a Robot Wacky Inducer - a machine that could actually make troublesome robots wacky and, therefore, harmless. All Professor Plenty asked for his machine was an annual rental fee or 50 million dollars! The plant owners accepted. Next, the Professor went to Doctor Elefun and offered to withdraw his machine, a device that could affect every robot in the city including Astro Boy! - for a mere 80 million dollars! Doctor Elefun refused to be intimidated and Professor Plenty made good his threat. He turned on the Wacky lnducer and every robot within a 100 mile radius was rendered feeble. But not Astro Boy, for at the boy’s own request he was dismantled by Doctor Elefun so that he would not be a robot While the machine was operating. Once the machine stopped for a periodic shutdown, however, Astro Boy was quickly re-assembled. He knew what he had to do: find the machine hidden somewhere in the vast city, and destroy it before it destroyed him all this in the course of two minutes. Just 120 seconds! He finds the machine, all right, but attempting to overcome all the hidden obstacles Professor Plenty has planted in his path becomes one of Astro Boy's greatest and most unique adventures!

Beast From 20,000 Fathoms Aug 19, 1963 From time to time, the civilized world is shocked to hear of the sightings of various and assorted monsters: The Loch Ness Monster of Scotland, the Mediterranean colocynth - a prehistoric fish actually caught in the late 1950's, etc. These monsters invariably appear in remote parts of the. world. Imagine the furor that arose then, when word spread that a monster had actually been sighted in nearby Lake Foggy Bottom! Not one, as a matter of fact, but several! A bevy of prehistoric reptiles- lizards that towered several stories tall and endowed with, of all things, hypnotic venom! Exposure to a single drop of that powerful venom made men the slaves of the lizard. It was clear that this reptilian cotillion, unless curbed, would eventually enslave Mankind. It remained for a single individual - Astro Boy - to track the beasts to their lair, shrug off their hypnotic venom (ineffective against a robot) and send them packing back into the pages of prehistory.

The Strange Birthday Present Sep 9, 1963 On his most recent birthday, Astro Boy received an amazing gift-something he had always wanted... a little sister! She was a gift of Doctor Packaderm us J. Elefun, head of the Institute of Science, and she was the image - the very image - of Astro Boy, but with pigtails. Her name was Astrogirl. A guileless child, in effect "born yesterday," Astrogirl somehow found herself in the clutches of an eccentric inventor who had perfected a method of doubling things. In no time at all, there were two Astrogirls each identical to the other. Not even Astrogirl herself could recall which was the original, and which the duplicate. When one Astrogirl became enmeshed in a shady plot to exploit her talents (which were nearly as formidable as Astro Boy's,) it took the other Astrogirl, plus Astro Boy, plus the entire Institute of Science to determine which Astrogirl was involved and how to save her!

The Disturbed Small Planet / The Asteroid Menace Sep 16, 1963 Somehow, unaccountably, the Asteroid Medusa had broken orbit and was now plummeting irresistibly toward Earth! A collision, if one occurred, would mean the end of this planet. Drastic action was called for and a drastic plan executed: a spaceship blasted off from Earth to intercept the Asteroid Medusa. Its mission: to detonate an anti-proton bomb upon the run-away body and blast it into oblivion. But only five persons in the world knew how to operate the highly secret and dangerous anti-proton device: Dr. Elefun, Astro Boy, and Doctors Alfa, Beta, and Gama. These last three Doctors - Alfa, Beta, and Ga ma - were serving a prison sentence when they were ordered aboard the spaceship. They were known to be dangerous men, yet so great was the crisis facing Earth that no risk was too great to take. As the spaceship approached Medusa, however, the true nature of the scientist~criminals emerged: they ordered the pilot to turn the ship around and head for coordinates unknown! Also, somehow they had acquired guns. Though Astro Boy was impervious to bullets, Doctor Elefun and the pilot were not. What was Astro Boy to do - resist, and risk the lives of those aboard ship? Or follow orders and jeopardize the planet Earth and its inhabitants?
