Gold led a quirky band of robots called The Metal Men that exhibited human emotions much to the dismay of their inventor, Dr. Will Magnus. Although they are pretty obscure today, they had a good 8 year run in their own series back in the 60s.
Gold and his fellow Metal Men (Iron, Lead, Mercury, Tin, and Platinum, the only “female” robot) all had distinct personalities and were usually in conflict with Doc Magnus and each other. Their stories offer a mixture of oddball adventure and goofy fun.
I bet a Metal Men animated movie or series could be a huge hit if they kept the character designs and tone of the original. I’m sure Gold would keep his irrepressible cohorts in line for the inevitable sequels or subsequent seasons.
