11"The Birth of Atom" / "Birth of Astro Boy"
Transcription: "Atomu Tanjō" (Japanese: アトム誕生)
January 1, 1963 (1963-01-01)[1]September 7, 1963

The story takes place in Metro City, circa 2000 A.D. Young Toby Tenma/Astor Boynton (the son of Dr. Tenma/Boynton) ends up dying in a hideous car crash. His father is left grief-stricken and plans on resolving his loss by creating a robot that looks like his son. Though the rest of the Ministry of Science is unsure of this plan (some thinking he’s insane), they go along with it. Over a year, his creation is assembled and named "Astro Boy". The next morning, Astro begins to adjust to life with Dr. Tenma. After some time, it becomes clear that Astro isn’t like Toby. Because of this, his father sells him to Mr. Cacciatore, the cruel ringmaster of a robot circus. At the circus, Astro is forced to fight against Z.O.G. in a duel where one robot will die. During the fight, Professor Ochanomizu/Dr. Elefun steps into the ring to protest the fight. Cacciatore, however, shows that his robot licenses say that there’s nothing wrong with robots fighting each other. Astro fights valiantly and discovers some of his abilities: super strength and flight. Using these abilities, he is able to defeat Z.O.G, but he refuses to kill him. Later that night, Cacciatore punishes him by cutting off his power supply from any recharge. Professor Ochanomizu comes to talk Cacciatore into giving Astro back, but he refuses to negotiate. Meanwhile, Astro finds a large heap of robots that Cacciatore plans to sell as scrap metal. He learns from the captain of the Tin Brigade that everyone is in the pile because they no longer please people. Astro then decides to share his energy with the robots. Some time later, the robot circus is ready for its next performance. The opening act features Sparky, a robot cannonball, who Cacciatore has jump through high voltage charges. Unfortunately, Sparky goes out of control and explodes, causing the whole circus tent to begin to collapse. Despite lack of power, Astro leads the robots he restored in a rescue mission. The robots quickly find and rescue everyone, save for Cacciatore. Astro re-enters the building to save him and discovers another ability: super hearing. Using his new skill, he saves Cacciatore from certain death. Later, at a hospital, Astro is liberated from Cacciatore when Dr. Elefun shows that robots are finally free from slavery. Having been beaten, Cacciatore cries in defeat as Professor Ochanomizu and Astro leave.

Deleted Scene: When Professor Ochanomizu tells Caccitore that lots of things happened while he was sleeping, the doctor briefly turns on the TV, which displays speeches from all over the world.
22"Frankenstein" / "Colosso"
Transcription: "Furanken" (Japanese: フランケン)
January 8, 1963 (1963-01-08)[1]September 14, 1963

The story begins in a robot factory. After an explanation as to how robots have begun to outnumber humans, the factory boss decides to put some robots on the line to make up for worker shortage. Meanwhile, Astro Boy longs to have parents to call his own. Deciding to chat with Professor Ochanomizu, Astro has his parents custom-made at the Institute of Science. Later that evening, an experimental robot named Frankenstein/Colosso goes haywire and escapes after causing immense collateral damage and several worker casualties. Astro happens across the horrid mess and figures out that, due to being incomplete, Frankenstein will listen to the first person he meets. Later that night, Frankenstein runs into a trio of gangsters having trouble cracking open a safe. He soon becomes the slave of a weak mobster named Monk, who has Frankenstein (who is nicknamed “Big Boy”) break into the safe for them. Back at their hideout, the Big Boss welcomes Frankenstein into the gang as their newest addition. Their next heist occurs at a local ballet performance, where the mobsters plan to steal the gems that belong to a wealthy patron of the ballet. After the show ends, the patron goes to give a present to a ballerina. Frankenstein, however, interrupts the meeting and causes mass hysteria. Frankenstein accidentally grabs the present for the ballerina, which was an oil can. Astro, despite being blamed by Inspector Tawashi/Gumshoe for the crime, decides to investigate the robberies. Later, at a local museum, Astro finds Monk (disguised as a guard) and Frankenstein (disguised as the Thinker) stealing several jewels. Astro is once again blamed by Inspector Tawashi and Monk. Back at their hideout, the mobsters get shares of the loot. The Big Boss decides to take the big pieces and gives only fractions of one diamond to the other mobsters. At Astro's trial, Astro is saved by Professor Ochanomizu, who points out that Frankenstein is still on the loose. Later, Professor Ochanomizu devises a plan to capture Frankenstein. Going on a cruise ship with a pile of rocks (claiming it's a diamond), Professor Ochanomizu is soon attacked by Frankenstein and Astro comes to save him. The battle on the ship causes serious damage to the ship's hull, which culminates with Astro dropping Frankenstein from a precarious height. Frankenstein survives the fall, but passes out in a lighthouse. Astro heads there and meets Monk, who reveals everything about the Big Boss' plan and gives up being a mobster. A scientist comes to fix Frankenstein, but the mobsters soon find the group. Astro quickly defeats the Big Boss and his minions and they are arrested. Astro is rewarded for his heroism with his recently completed parents. Frankenstein repaired and sent on his mission to work at an outpost in outer space as Astro and Monk bid him farewell.
