Tooniversary: The New Adventures of Gigantor (1980-1993)

Gigantor was brought back to life in Japan in 1980, but it took 13 years for it to be imported to the US. Independent producer Fred Ladd teamed with TMS Entertainment to bring The New Adventures of Gigantor to the then-Sci-Fi Channel (now SyFy) in 1993. Either way you slice it, the series lasted just 1 season, but Sci-Fi kept it around in repeats for 3 additional years. The difference this time, of course, was that the show was in color.

I never saw this version, so there won't be a rating. We'll leave you with the series opener:
