Astro Boy in Toronto

City News' Popcorn Chatter reports that Astro himself recently made a visit to my neck of the woods, Toronto! He was in town to see some very lucky kids at the Hospital for Sick Children. Not only did Astro give them a surprise visit, but also a special viewing of the animated Astro Boy movie.

This is totally cool and really touches my heart. The Hospital for Sick Children, aka "SickKids", is a world renowned facility and I know people who were taken care of there when they were young. It's only fitting that such an important place dedicated to the health of children would be visited by the child creation of Osamu Tezuka, who was a doctor himself. Kudos to everyone involved in making this happen.
