Gigantor - Huge rocket-propelled robot on
the Japanese science fiction cartoon GIGANTOR/SYN/1966.
Set in the year A.D. 2000, Gigantor was the world's mightiest robot
originally designed for warfare but whose powers were later
harnessed for peace. It was remotely controlled by a twelve-year-old
boy named Jimmy Sparks.
Gigantor's theme song describes its mission:
Gi-GAN-tor, Gi-GAN-tor, Gi-GANNNN-tor.
Gigantor the space-age robot, he's at your command...Bigger than
big. Taller than tall, quicker that quick. Stronger that strong.
Ready to fight for right...against wrong.
Bigger than big, taller than tall,
Quicker than quick, stronger than strong.
Ready to fight for right, against wrong.
Gigantor, Gigantor, Gigantor.
