    Nearly two hundred years have passed since humanity departed from the Earth to start new lives in space colonies. The United Earth Sphere Alliance, who had abolished all the nations of the world and had taken control of the planet is now threatening to extend that control over the independent space colonies. Within the Alliance, a special group known as the Organization of the Zodiac(OZ) which is responsible for the Alliance's actions, aims to take center stage. Unwilling to yield to the Alliance, the colonies send 5 young men in Mobile Suits known as Gundams to destroy OZ and preserve the colonies' independence. Gundam Wing is an anime created in 1995 (formally known as 'New Mobile Report Gundam Wing'). Its parent series, Mobile Suit Gundam (AU), had premiered in 1979, marking the beginning of a successful Gundam Era. Two years after the release of forty-nine episodes, Gundam Wing was a venture to attract a new generation of cartoon-watchers. The show's initial airing in the United States is accredited to Cartoon Network's Toonami schedule block. "Generations ago, with a great dream for the future... humankind departed from planet Earth, seeking a life on space colonies. But as time went by, the United Earth Sphere Alliance brought the colonies under its control... one after another using its overwhelming military power in the name of peace and justice. After Colony, Year 195... The beginning of Operation Meteor... It was a secret operation by a few colonies which tried to stand against the Alliance.

Below them live the commoners, people who try hard to make a living in the dingy cities and damaged communities left behind. To avoid real war, the world's governments have established a tournament to decide for a time who will control the world called the Gundam Fight. Each country devises a powerful mobile suit called a Gundam and drops it on the Earth, and these units fight each other, the last one left standing becoming the Gundam of Gundams and earning his or her nation the sovereign rights to the Earth, the colonies, and all mankind... but only for four years, until the next Gundam Fight begins.

    Astro Boy (2004) tells the story of a youthful robot boy - Astro -modeled after the deceased son of a research scientist, Dr. Tenma. Originally intended to be kept a secret, the atomic-powered robot becomes a reluctant superhero who fights for justice and peace for humans and robots alike. Created in Metro City he lives among a 'retro-futuristic' society populated by humans and robots. His creator Dr. Tenma, head of the Ministry of Science, builds Astro in his son's image. Astro never can fill the void that Dr. Tenma feels over the loss of his son. Astro Boy (2004) is a show that you can't miss. Tenma shuts down Astro, burns down the Ministry of Science and flees. Some time later, Astro is discovered by Dr. O'Shay, the new head of the Ministry. Dr. O'Shay takes in Astro and serves as his mentor. Driven by the belief that robots and humans should be friends, Dr. O'Shay is Astro's greatest ally. He provides Astro with a home, enrolls him in school and creates a robot family for him. Astro possesses superb strength, including jet-rocket feet and arms that allow him to fly at extreme speeds. However, the secret to his victories is not his super-powers; the quality that makes him superior to other robots is his artificial brain, the most advanced in the world. This unique quality, termed kokoro in Japanese, allows Astro to experience all of the same emotions as humans. He's clever, resourceful and has a strong sense of justice, always attempting to reason with his adversaries. Mankind's only hope of surviving the onslaught of rebellious robots is a robot himself...the fearless, selfless, incorruptible champion known as Astro. In his quest for peace and justice, Astro often goes it alone, but he is occasionally aided by his robot sister or even rebel robots that he is able to enlist. Astro also has human friends from school who often become entangled in his conflicts. Astro Boy (2004) is produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    Character Guide

    Dr. Tenma - Dr. Tenma created two of the most powerful robots in the world. Both of his robots include, Astro and Atlas. Both robots were created to remember his lost son who died.

    Welcome to the Pet Alien Guide at TV.com!

    Show Description This series is about a young teenage boy named, Tommy Cadle who loves to hang out with his Pet Alien pals. It's a great series. Watch it! Imagine that you're an alien from outer space. You've left behind your boring, conformist dimension known as Conforma and traveled across time, space and other dimensions to arrive at planet earth, and then land in a little out-of-the-way seaside town called DeSpray Bay. More specifically, Tommy Cadle's lighthouse hideaway. That's right! Pet Aliens have crashed into the top of the lighthouse tower and made themselves at home. Unfortunately, the earth boy living there was none-too-keen on this house invasion. When Tommy woke to be greeted by a big, slobbering Gumpers, he did what any kid would do when faced with being devoured by a pink, fuzzy, lovable alien: he ran and fell off the top of his lighthouse! It looked like this was going to be a very short TV series. And then, Dinko to the rescue! The little green fellow raced down the side of the lighthouse and caught Tommy before he became a "Cadle pancake". Thus, a friendship was born – and we're not talking about the one between Swanky and himself. A special bond formed between human and a Pet Alien; sentimental and emotional attachment that remains solid, even if one can sometimes drive the other crazy.

    Character Guide Tommy Cadle - Tommy Cadle is an average thirteen-year old boy who one day met alien pals. Tommy Cadle had a boring life before the aliens came. Now his life's crazy and he experiences more adventures than ever. Tommy likes to draw and express his feelings in different ways. Tommy is the main character in this animated series.

    Dinko - Dinko brought a long all of these aliens to earth. Dinko is the leader of the alien gang as he helps out Tommy and his other pals. Dinko gives Tommy an adventure to his life. Without him, this series would be nothing. Dinko is one of the main stars of this series. You can't take this alien out of the series.

    Gumpers - Gumpers is the big, lovable alien who does nothing but being very lazy. Gumpers is a lot like a monster, the only problem is, Gumpers is afraid of monsters. Well, actually Gumpers is afraid of everything and that's how it's going to be in the lighthouse for a while.

    Flip - Flip is crazy and wild. His name, "Flip" describes a lot of his wacky personality. Flip's to hyper to even speak. Flip speaks altogether and it's extremely hard to tell what he is saying. To translate what Flip is saying, you better call up your Spanish teacher.

    Swanky - Swanky is a pain in the butt. Swanky was brought up by getting everything that he wants. This makes Swanky a nerve and puts him in the "boring" character in this series. Swanky's usually found trying to take over the lighthouse for himself. He doesn't really like the other aliens, but he gets around it somehow.

    Scruffy - Scruffy is the mega happy dog of your dreams. Well, he's not really a dog, he's an alien. Scruffy tagged along with the aliens because he was stranded by his owner, who we do not know. Scruffy loves to be scratched behind the ear and do all the stuff regular human-like dogs do. Without Scruffy this series would be a blur.moreless

We start every episode in a satellite that orbits the earth in the year 100 million. Buff time cop, Buck Tuddrussel; cranky, yet sophisticated robot, the Larry 3000; and 8-year-old orphan boy, Otto Osworth; three of the most unlikely characters to become a trio join together in that satellite to go on whatever mission through history they get, to make sure everything happens the right way, while making it through mishaps on the satellite in between missions. They go though it all: from Eli Whitney's flesh eating robots to the accidental downgrade of Larry, but they're always ready for the sudden blaze of the History Instability Alarm and they'll do anything to "enforce the past to protect the future". Characters Buck Tuddrussel- Tuddrussel is the main time cop of the squad, and not a very good one at that. He's known to not be very bright, and always seems to think that violence is the answer to everything. He often has to be pointed in the right direction by his servant robot, Larry, and the boy, Otto. And he doesn't know anything about history! When he's not on a mission, he enjoys practicing his sharp shooting, reading his laser magazines, and weight lifting. The Larry 3000- Tuddrussel's servant. Not a very happy one, though. But you'd be as unhappy as he is if you had to work for such a terrible leader! He often has to stop Tuddrussel from doing anything bad, and many times has his chance to show his creativity in foods spoiled when Tuddrussel asks for a burger, the only thing he ever wants! He was originally designed to assist kings and diplomats, but was later transfered with Tuddrussel. When he's not on a mission, he enjoys golfing, knitting, and any other civilized hobby--you name it! He doesn't know anything about history either! Otto Osworth- The boy orphan who talked Tuddrussel and Larry into abducting him from the School for Wayward Tots in the 21st century, using the fact that he knew so much about history. Whenever they get a mission he's always there to tell what the person from history's famous for. He's also there when Tuddrussel (or "Tuddrussel and Larry", believe it or not) do something he knows is wrong!

    Cyborg 009 is the story of a half-Japanese juvenile delinquent named Joe Shimamura, or Cyborg 009. Black Ghost, a top-secret organization bent on promoting global warfare, kidnaps Joe along with eight other unwanted members of society from the four corners of the globe and turns them into Cyborgs. Though the organization intends to turn the group into super-powered killing machines, it's not long before Joe and his new companions rebel against Black Ghost and make their escape with the help of an old scientist, Dr. Isaac Gilmore.

    Once Joe and friends have freed themselves, Black Ghost sends a series of other Cyborgs and giant robots in hot pursuit. Using their new powers and abilities, our heroes stay one step ahead of Black Ghost and its evil machinations, but can they save the world from its diabolical scheme?!

    Cyborg 009 was the creation of manga-ka (Japanese comic artist) Shotaro Ishinomori. In 1971, Ishinomori-sensei reworked the Cyborg 009 concept into his more popular creation, Masked Rider, or Kamen Rider, which told the story of a young scientist/motorcyclist named Takeshi Hongo who fights the evil organization Shocker, which transformed him into a grasshopper-like Cyborg for their evil deeds

    This is the third Cyborg 009 anime series made. The first was made in 1966, and the second in 1979, the latter almost identical to the newer series made in 2001. There were also two animated films in 1966 and 1967, Cyborg 009 and Cyborg 009: Monster War, and another for the '79 series in 1980 titled Cyborg 009: Legend of the Super Galaxy .

    This guide covers the English dub version ONLY. In Japan, in 2001, it was named Cyborg 009 The Cyborg Soldier, or Cyborg Soldier 009, to avoid confusion with the two previous series.

Forty years ago, an event occurred that caused all living individuals to completely lose their memories. People continued to struggle with their existence, despite this fact, though the search for memories still drives mankind to the brink of insanity. That event also caused a few people to gain some special abilities, such as the right to be a Dominus of a MegaDeus. Roger is capable of calling upon the power of Big O, his own MegaDeus, which he decides to use to defend the city from other MegaDeuses. He continues to live by his ideal, that "people are not ruled by their memories!" This is the guide to the Adult Swim version and the dub. For the WOWOW and original Japanese version, go here. Note: Both guides are the same in terms of episodes and summaries (although what is actually currently submitted is different), just the airdates and cast differ. Airdates: The Big O began airing on Japanese television on October 13, 1999. It lasted through January 13, 2000 running 13 episodes. It was canceled, due to only average ratings. On April 2, 2001 it was dubbed and aired on Cartoon Network's Toonami Block. It ran all 13 episodes, but was edited. Due to the fact that the demographic watching the series was older than the one Toonami hoped to aim for, it was taken off Toonami and aired on Adult Swim. On AS, it was a huge success. On August 3, 2003, a second season was co-produced by Cartoon Network and debuted on Adult Swim. This second season, sometimes called The Big O II or simply Big O II, continues the storyline beginning with the last part of the first season's last episode. However, there are some obvious differences in the and narrative. The Adult Swim airing lasted until November 2, 2003. The Japanese airing of Season 2 lasted from January 2, 2003 to March 27, 2003. The producers wanted a third Season, but one was never created. Season 3? Due to a large amount of mysteries left unsolved by the finale of the second season, the production crew wanted to create a third season to tie up the loose ends and finish the series, as per an option on the contract between Cartoon Network and Sunrise. However, the network determined that the show lacked the marketability and numbers to continue airing new episodes on Adult Swim. There is a great deal of controversy over this decision, however nothing is known for sure. For example, the show's ratings were not nearly as bad as Adult Swim had stated. They weren't high, but they weren't low. The reason why Adul Swim said they were bad nd if this fact is 100% true is still unknown for sure. A petition is still available here. The creators behind it are still seeking a certain number of signatures required by Time Warner for consideration of a third season.moreless

    The Adventures of Jonny Quest is an animated action series about a boy who tags along with his dad on amazing adventures. Comic book artist Doug Wildey created the show for Hanna-Barbera Productions in the mid-1960s. Jonny (Tim Matheson) is an 11-year-old boy who is athletic, intelligent and emotionally mature for his age. Dr. Benton C. Quest (John Stephenson/Don Messick) is one of the "top three scientists in the world" and works on special assignments for the U.S. government. Joining Dr. Quest and Jonny on their adventures are Dr. Quest's adopted son, Hadji (Danny Bravo), Race Bannon (Mike Road) and Jonny's pet bulldog, Bandit (Don Messick). Bannon is the family's de facto bodyguard/pilot and works for the governmental agency Intelligence One. The Quests' primary foe is arch-villain Dr. Zin (Vic Perrin). The original pilot, "The Mysteries of the Lizard Men", sets the stage for the series as the team investigates a mysterious event only to discover a secret criminal base protected by men in lizard-style scuba suits. Jonny lives an exciting life and is integral to solving the mysteries the Quest team encounters.moreless
