Fictional robots. They've captured our hearts (Wall-E... sniff sniff
), got on our nerves (yes, Im talking to you, C-3PO), and scared the crap out of us ("Ill be back!"). But there were some robots that never quite managed to get the attention they deserved. They acted their shinny butts off, but still never had a kid dress up like them on Halloween. Here are some of those lesser know TV and movie robots that deserve a shout out and some extra credit for their efforts...
10. Andrew (The Bicentennial Man)
Okay, Andrew in his robot body was just silly looking. And when he got skin and looked like Robin Williams, well, it wasnt that much of an improvement. But you have to give Andrew his props. This robot was a favorite with the ladies. Little Miss wanted him, Galatea wouldve done him, and Portia got him. I guess the ladies in that future werent that picky, but still, Andrew got some action even as a robot.
9. Rosie (The Jetsons)
This sassy robot was the maid to those lovable Jetsons. Rosie was a big girl with attitude. Her wise cracks to Mr. Jetson made us love her for sticking it to the man.
8. Fire Extinguisher Robot (Iron Man)
This skinny thing was only in Iron Man for a few scenes, but it still makes me laugh every time I see them. It doesnt have a name in the movie, but its so funny it doesnt need one. Maybe when it gets its own spin off movie they will finally give it a name. Squirty sounds funny. The love scenes will be epic.
7. Cylon Centurions (Battlestar Galactica)
Sure, the new series skin-jobs were sexy, but lets not forget the originals. There were lots of them. And they didnt say really say much other than By your command." But they could fly ships, shoot guns, and followed orders well. Plus the Gold ones looked cool.
6. Johnny 5 (Short Circuit)
Even though this movie had Steve Guttenberg in it, its still a fun movie to watch. Johnny 5 is a lovable robot who just cant get enough input (hey, who doesnt). He loves to dance, play with butterflies, and... Okay, maybe Johnny 5 could have inputted a little more Dirty Harry programming, but he did get a little on the sensors, so he wasnt completely fluffy. And he did have a laser. Lasers are great.
