Big Guy and Rusty are a robotic pair of protagonists in the 1999 sci-fi animated series Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot who are assigned to defend Earth from various threats caused by various villains.
Big Guy is voiced by Johnathan Cook, while Rusty was Voiced by Pamela Adlon.
Big Guy, also known as, the BGY-11, is one of the two main characters of the TV show, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot. Designated as the BGY-11, the so-called 'robot' champion of Earth was actually a heavily-armed battlesuit, piloted by Lieutenant Dwayne Hunter. When Quark Industries failed to produce an actual robot with artificial intelligence, the solution was to use a human pilot. As Hunter puts it, the Big Guy was nothing more than a fancy tank. Big Guy is able to fly, possesses great strength and is armed with a variety of integrated weaponry, including the signature fold-out guns in the elbow housings. Unlike Rusty, he is powered by a Cobalt/Thorium G Power Core. Always ready with a patriotic quip, Big Guy's personality is much different than that of his human pilot in real life.
Rusty is one of the two main characters of the TV show, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot. Quark's intended replacement for Big Guy, a robot with real artificial intelligence and powered by nucleoprotons. However, Rusty is far too inexperienced to face the threats that the Big Guy normally handles, so he is relegated to being Big Guy's sidekick and trainee. He idolizes Big Guy but is unaware that his hero is actually a human inside a metal suit. Though immature and impetuous, Rusty does at times give his hero an emotional boost in morale. It's generally unwise to trifle with him; it may take a while, but the boy robot does make evildoers pay. He initially had a bit of a problem of handling the recoil of his nucleoproton blasts, and regularly got knocked down afterwards or shot the wrong target, but after some practice learned to compensate for the recoil.
