Astro Boy episode 7 "Zero, the Invisible Robot"
Dr. Isaac Nuttin invents Zero, an invisible robot. Fearless Freddie Fink bankrolled him, and is now using Zero to commit crimes. Zero doesn't know right from wrong, and Astro Boy has to intervene.
Lots of visual gags here, mostly to do with the invisible robot. Freddie is a no good crook, who apparently bought off the judge. I would be surprised if many kids got all that was going on in this episode, including the rather downbeat ending.
no spoilers, but it involves Zero and a time bomb set to go off right at 10 PM.
there are a few name gags, with Dr. Nuttin and Sing Sung Prison as well.
