* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: There exists an English-language dub, produced exclusively for Canadian broadcast, colloquially referred to among fans as the "Canadian" version of the show. Unlike the more widely-known American dub, which has been used for the DVD releases, the Canadian dub was only ever broadcast within Canada up until the early 1990s and hasn't seen the light of day since. A few episodes have surfaced online, but it seems highly unlikely that an official release will ever materialize, as the American dub is already available, and the whereabouts of the Canadian version, if the master tapes even still exist, is unknown. The Canadian dub featured a different voice cast than the American one, gave many characters different names and contained additional editing (episode runtimes were shorter). It also featured a trivia game at the end of each episode, wherein Astro gave a recap of the plot, but would intentionally include an error for viewers to find. The answers were never revealed on the show; ideally viewers were instructed to write down what they believed to be the error and compare their answer with those of their friends.

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Australians Love Astro Boy]]: They make up a large fanbase, partly due to being one of the few countries outside Japan that got the 1982 series.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: There's a story arc about a group who skins dogs and turns them into cyborgs. While it's not actually shown on-panel, it's still incredibly dark. Likewise, other stories explore topics like racism (through [[FantasticRacism through anti-robot prejudice]]), war, and child abuse (as in Astro's origin). Nevertheless, it's still aimed at children. Likely because Tezuka respected his audience and didn't want to talk down to them.

* ComingOutStory: Astro Boy's secret of being a robot resembles most Coming Out Stories, especially the nighttime scene when he almost "comes out" to Cora.
