Giant Robo - Flying robot on the live-action children's adventure program JOHNNY SOKKO AND HIS FLYING ROBOT/SYN/1967.

Giant Robo - JOHNNY SOKKO AND HIS FLYING ROBOT

The 21st century organization known as UNICORN used a giant computerized flying robot ("Giant Robo") as its secret weapon in the battle against evil. A small boy named Johnny Sokko (code name U-7) controlled the operations of this massive flying mechanical man whose head was covered in an Egyptian style head dress.

With the power of Giant Robo (with laser beam eyes, flame throwing mouth, fingertips loaded with rockets and an atomic powered brain) Johnny Sokko battled the evil minions of sinister terrorist organization BF Dan (Big Fire Organization - aka The Gargoyle Gang)) who serve Emperor Guillotine (Sato Tadayo), an outer space alien who seeks to conquer earth.

Emperor Guillotine forced scientist  Dr. Garulcher to build Giant Robo on a remote island, but the Emperor was denied the robot's power when Johnny Sokko (Kaneko Mitsunobu) imprinted  his voice patterns (through a special watch) into the robot's circuitry.

For his betrayal, Dr. Galrucher was killed by the BF Dan, but Johnny Sokko was now in control of the doctor's imposing and powerful robotic creation who would only respond to his voice commands.
