Robo Crosser was a planned anime series from Telecom Animation Film and Disney's Jetix division. The series was formally announced at the 2008 Tokyo International Anime Fair with the intended broadcast window being spring 2009. According to reports, the series would've told the story of "a 12-year-old boy and his unicycle robot who are trying to win a motorbike race."[1] At the fair, a fully animated trailer was presented to the public.[2] Shortly after, the series was silently cancelled for unknown reasons.

Plans for Robo Crosser date back to at least 2004, when Telecom shared storyboards for the first three episodes of the series on their website. At the time, the company projected the series to run for 26 episodes. [3] The page has since gone offline and the storyboards weren't properly archived.[4]
