Stump the King - Astro Boy - VIDEO

There you go, Astro BoyHere is a pleasant letter I got this week from a fan named Everett Mason...

Everett writes, "Hi Paul, I'm trying to remember a 70's anime. I know it was about a boy from outer space that had powers. It was in black and white. It might have been called space boy or something like that."

Well, clearly the answer is Astro Boy. Even if you have never seen the show, I'm sure most of you are at least familiar with it. The character has been one of the more successful crossovers from Japanese animation to America.

With the Speed Racer movie coming out, I'm sure we'll see a big revival in Americanized anime. In fact, Nickelodeon has already announced they are bringing Speed back to their screen.

So, now that Speed Racer and Transformers have returned, what Japanese cartoons are you hoping to see again?

Here is this week's question.

What is the connection between Astro Boy and Nell Carter?

Way to go, Alicia. You got it right.
