Saturday Morning Matinee: Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot!
Giant Robo, known in the States as Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot, was a kids’ SciFi series that ran for 26 episodes during the late 1960s. I vaguely remember watching reruns of this when I was too small to change the channel – it’s a very fuzzy, very faded memory. Fortunately, we have the Internets to relive our days of long ago…when we didn’t know the difference between Awesome and Cheese. Guess which one this is?
I give you exhibit A: Episode #1 entitled “Dracolon, The Great Sea Monster” and described thusly:
Johnny discovers the B.F. Gang (bad guys), Unicorn (good guys), and takes control of Giant Robot, his ally in the fight for good over evil.
Cant get enough? Hulu has all 26 episodes for your enjoyment.
