During one of the 2007 TV Funhouse segments on Saturday Night Live, there was a parody short called Torboto: The Robot That Tortures People, which based on the American intro for the 1960's series. The intro theme and title slide even mimicked that of the Gigantor intro. In short, Dick Cheney commissions for a super-powered robot that can torture people at Guantanimo Bay. That's as far as it goes, but the scene has the honourability to not make Dick Cheney and Bush talk like Speed Racer.
