Prince Planet is the English Name of Planet Boy Popi, a Japanese anime television series. Prince Plant or Planet Boy Popi aired in the United States as a 52 episode monochrome anime. It was short lived due to its monochrome (black and white) episodes as color TV was much more popular.

Prince Planet tells the story of how a member of the UPC (Universal Police Corps) comes to Earth from the Planet Radion comes to earth to determine if Earth meets the qualifications to enter into the Galactic Union of Worlds. While on Earth, Prince Planet adopts the Earth name of Bobby and recruits friends to help him in his battle to protect the citizens of earth from any forces of evil.

While on Earth Bobby (aka Prince Planet), meets a girl Diana Worthy (Riko in the Japanese version) and her father Pops Worthy, Dan Dynamo a professional wrestler, and finally Warlock a self-proclaimed Master of Martian Magic. While on Earth, Prince Planet likes to exist only as Bobby and tries to learn the culture and customs of Earth. However, when the earth is threated he transforms into Prince Planet by clutching his medallion and reciting the ancient transformation phrase.

Prince Planet has a unique set of otherworldly powers like flight, super-human strength, he can also transform objects into whatever he wants with the use of his brain and magical pendant. However, he must be careful using his magical pendant because it is like a battery in that it requires recharging from time to time. Unfortunately, for Prince Planet it cannot be done on earth and cannot be done by himself. The pendant must be charged from a power tower on planet radon. However, there is only one person who is supposed to be recharging pendants and he is terribly slow, often leaving Prince Planet fighting without any magical powers until the last possible minute.

Prince Planet is a show that combines action, adventure and superheroes into a single television show perfect for comic book lovers or children of all ages.
