When asked about anime, Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi mentioned he liked this series.
There is a parody of Astro Boy in the American animated television series "Freakazoid!" call "Hero Boy" The title character from Freakazoid's favorite TV show that is first shown in the episode of the same name. Hero Boy has no powers (save for flying) and his black and white show is a parody of the animated series Astro Boy. Hero Boy has the catchphrase "I must succeed!", though he is invariably shrugged off by the monsters he fights when his pathetic fighting techniques (consisting of weakly pounding on the enemies) fail miserably.
