"Giant Robot attack!" as spoken by the kid every kid wanted to be, Johnny Sokko. If you haven't already seen "'Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot" aka "Giant Robot", go now and buy it on VHS or DVD.

Comparisons to The Iron Giant? I'd say same principle, but well executed... all the wonder and magic of the giant robot, with a plot, decent script, characters, and the like. If you're in the mood to play Crow/Tom Servo/Mike|Joel, I'm sure it's hard to beat Johnny Sokko, but for an actual story, Iron Giant wins.

There is only one robot fit to rule, and that of course is the mighty Robot Frank.

Go Robot Ron!
