I remember this show when Fox decided to broadcast a few seasons of this. They stopped less than mid series, not sure why. To me at the time, the show was quite goofy. I have yet to watch the actual anime or read the manga. A kid made of rubber? Fighting pirates? I'll watch it and wait for pokemon. Fox did the same for Escaflowne. It was going along smooth until the fight scenes where the baddies were sliced and blood was flying everywhere. Apparently it got too bloody and was canceled.
