Grief-stricken by the death of his son, Tobio, Dr. Tenma vows to create a new, robotic son in his image. The experiment is a success, but Dr. Tenma doesn’t find the happiness he expected. He grows angry at the robot, that he cannot grow or act like a normal young boy, and eventually sells him to a robot circus. But Astro Boy’s adventures are just beginning.
