Hmm, no time signature, but assuming it's written for piano or guitar, my daughter says that's in B flat major key, and I know it's a march. It's a simple enough arangmemt for me to try to program into a music box I'm designing using an old synthesizer chip from an ancient video game.

Edit: C means "common time" or 4/4. So that's not exactly a march time.

I happened upon this today while browsing aliexpress and thought it was interesting how they decided to make a Ratom figure. Interesting choice, bootleg.

You gotta love flying Atom's off-kilter eyes. :lol:

I just found an old countdown clock for the birth of Atom on Ebay:

On the second, fourth, and fifth images, "cream" is a typo; it should say "dream". Though, it is a pretty funny typo. :lol:

Oh, I actually own that clock! I got it well after 2003 and I've never gotten to put batteries in it so I don't know what it would do now, but it's a neat bit of merch to have, I think.
It's a magical day!

I think this is intentional, as in THE CREAM OF THE CROP, etc.

If anyone has $1,350 USD to spare, there's a 1998 Game Boy Light with Astro Boy on it being sold on Ebay:

:lol: Not for me, I am just not into collectibles. BTW, I just bought boxed set #1 of the 2003 series, complete with figurine. I have no use for it, & might sell on eBay, I think I can make it a private auction. :D
