This classic Toonami commercial for 'Advanced Robotics' contains a mashup of a few different robot/mecha-centric franchises but I don't recognize them all.

Toonami Advanced Robotics

Can I get some help listing the various series? Here are the ones I recognize without knowing the specific movie or series:

  1. Dragonball/Dragonball Z
  2. Gundam
  3. Justice League Unlimited

1 Answer 1


0:00 - 0:28 - The Big O. First episode.

0:28 ("It's coming") - ???

0:29 - 0:35 - Probably Gundam Wing.

0:35 - Dragon Ball Z. Probably main series. I suspect they're operating on Frieza after his defeat.

0:38 - Superman The Animated Series. I believe this advert predates the Justice League cartoons.

0:42 (and the voiceover that overlaps previous) - Gundam Wing

0:43 - 1:08 - The Big O. Spliced from multiple episodes. The explosion at the end could be from another series.

1:10 - Gundam Wing

1:14 - Superman The Animated Series. Episode collection The World's Finest, a crossover with Batman TAS

1:16 - Dragon Ball Z, probably the film The World's Strongest

1:26 - Possibly Outlaw Star

1:29 - Gundam Wing

1:31 - Definitely Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest

1:37 - Blue Submarine No. 6

1:51 - Animation is from The Big O. The voiceover is not. Google suggests it's from Gundam, but I can't pin it down. Possibly 08th MS Team.

The Toonami wiki page lists the shows used and the original air year.

    I had not heard of 'The Big O'. It looks interesting.

    I think 0:28 is also Gundam Wing
