I, Robot
26 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a clever "Hubie and Bertie" animated short in which the two mice investigate a "House Of Tomorrow." There is an open house for anyone to see this futuristic home, designed by F. Lloyd Wrong (boy, these cartoonists love puns and corny jokes).

Once inside, the two discover buttons which produce automated results on anything you want done such as cleaning, laundry, playing music, etc.

One of the gags - the chief one of the story - involves a robot which comes out and cleans up any mess that is made on the floor. The poor robot winds up being tormented by the mice, all in an effort to get some cheese. "Hubie" also tends to be a little sadistic, at least in the three cartoons I've seen so far of these guys.

The battle between the mice and the cleaning robot is very funny and very clever and has an ending in which justice is served. This is a fun cartoon to watch, by far the best of the three H&B 'toons I've seen so far.
