Premiering in the '60s, Gigantor blazed a new trail in America for Japanese animation. The influential series was one of the first featuring a giant, heroic robot and was designed with a cinematic sensibility that thrilled and captivated audiences. When terrorist groups, evil criminals and hostile aliens become too powerful for Earth's armed forces, the virtually-indestructible robot Gigantor is built to combat them. Commanded by Jimmy Sparks through a remote control, Gigantor must battle to save the world from a never-ending assault by ruthless villains.
