"THE ORIGINAL GIGANTOR was "born" in New York City during the summer of 1963. That is when Fred Ladd first saw artwork of a giant, needle-nosed robot remotely controlled by a young boy. The artwork had been created in Japan some 5 years earlier by Tokyo-based artist Mitsuteru Yokoyama; the adventures of the robot (in Japanese, "Tetsujin 28," translated as "IronMan 28") had appeared in a boys' magazine (Shonen) and were successful enough to generate a black-and-white animated TV Series called "Tetsujin 28-Go"."
Can't get this song out of my head, now. The theme song to Gigantor in 1960s American TV broadcasts has a lively, tribal beat, with half steps, like a samba or bossanova.
