This live-action Japanese adventure flick was culled from the children's TV series Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot. Produced by Mushi Studios (a firm better known for its animated fare), Voyage into Space stars Mitsundbu Kaneko as a "bad" robot turned good. While some cartoon work has been blended into the action, the live stuff is so larger-than-life that one can barely tell the difference between real and unreal. Akjto Ito and Shozaburo Date co-star. Originally produced for television in 1967, Johnny Sokko made it into American syndication in 1968; the feature-length version, which per its title concentrated on Johnny's adventures in the Great Beyond, was assembled in 1970.
