I love working on J's commissions because all of his requests are so awesome.
Here's some footage of the Johnny Socko (or Sokko?) TV show, the original 60s Japanese version being called simply "Giant Robo" ジャイアントロボー
These American/Italian appropriates of Japanese shows and properties really make me laugh, not just with the terrible dubbing, but the complete lack of accreditation for the original Japanese creators.
They don't list the original producers, actors, designers or crew in some versions or they push the names to the very end, all the while sticking in their own production credits right in front! Sillybillies.
Anyway, super fun - thanks, J!
