Cartoon series about black robot in 80s

Another piece of my childhood πŸ™‚

When I was a kid I lived several months in Algeria, it was somewhere in 86-87. And there was a cartoon series on TV about a boy and his big dark color robot. The only thing I remember – this robot could fly and held the boy on outstretched arms. I even don’t remember the language, maybe french πŸ™‚

Google always suggest “The Iron Giant” but it’s from 1999. I suspect it could be anime – they have plenty of robots πŸ™‚ So, does anybody have any ideas?

        1. It is the same thing. Tetsujin 28 Gou” is the Japanese name for the original series in the sixties. In the United States the dubbed version was called Gigantor. It was in black and white, but since the OP said they saw it in the eighties I assumed they saw the color version from 1980.
