Black Jack is an unregistered doctor with a clouded, mysterious past. He works with his little assistant, Pinoko, to solve unknown medical cases. Most of the episodes involve Black Jack doing some good deed, for which he rarely gets recognition — often curing the poor and destitute for free, or teaching a capitalist fat cat and his pompous colleagues a lesson in humility. They frequently end with a good, humane person enduring hardship, often unavoidable death, to save others.
