Paying tribute to Astro Boy, created by his mentor Osamu Tezuka, Ishinomori used the stories of Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio (which was also the basis for Astro Boy) along with Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein as the basis for his science fiction action masterpiece hailed to this day by fans in Japan.
The tokusatsu series from 1972 has also become a phenomenon in Hawaii to this very day. The complete DVD series is available in the west with English subtitles through JN Productions.
