''The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot'' (1995) began as Creator/FrankMiller's and Creator/GeofDarrow's much more family friendly collaboration after the energetically demented ''Hard Boiled''. The Comic was a big over the top tribute to [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] comics, ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' and ''Manga/AstroBoy''. The story is about a giant, primordial monster unleashed upon Tokyo which the military is unable to defeat; subsequently the government is forced to send the newly developed and inexperienced Rusty the [[RobotKid Boy Robot]] in to try and neutralize the threat. Unfortunately he is also overwhelmed by the monster and the government calls on the aid of their [[AmericaSavesTheDay American allies]] who send in Big Guy, a bigass humanoid robot, with two fists and [[MoreDakka a whole lot of guns]]. The comic was adapted into a [[WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot cartoon]] that ran from 1999 to 2000.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Though the giant dinosaur monster is directly vanquished, its "children" still live on, and through them, their cells, so too does it. Meaning Big Guy hasn't [[BolivianArmyEnding properly ended this threat]] to the human race. [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom Cue celebrations and parades until the next threat arrives]].]]
