Doordarshan's Giant Robot

Indians over a certain age might remember "Giant Robot" (or "Giant Robo") with a degree of nostalgia. Back in the day when Doordarshan was the Hobson's choice of TV viewers, we were treated to some pretty exotic features such as this Japanese TV show which I believe was telecast at around 7:00 pm.

Parts 2 and 3 of the above episode are available on Metacafe.

Giant Robot's powers include finger missiles, back missiles, eye beam, flame thrower, and more.

The live-action show was based on a manga by Yokoyama Mitsuteru. While the intro to the TV show appears to have been cut from both the above videos on YouTube, a rendition of the theme song can be heard here.
