Bozo the Iron Man. Dr. Van Thorp builds Bozo, a mighty robot, to help him conquer the world. But Hugh Hazzard, a boy, overhears the evil Van Thorp gloating and foils the plan. Hazard is given the robot after Van Thorp is sent to jail, and Hazard reprograms Bozo to do good, which he does. Bozo has great super-strength, can walk at the bottom of the ocean floor, can run over 70 mph, and can be controlled either remotely or from inside his body (he's hollow and Hazard can fit inside him). He appears in stories with titles like "Von Hutz's Plan," "The Submarine Disasters," and "The Emerald of Erin."
