Storyline

Metal Mickey was a robot built by young Ken to do chores around the house. Ken was the eldest child of a typical British family--well, almost typical. Metal Mickey was endowed with a number of magic powers, which enabled it to battle aliens, travel through time, survive extreme temperatures, and other outlandish situations. Mostly Metal Mickey just caused trouble for the Wilburforces, but the family loved him anyway. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

cool
20 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved this program. My whole family watched it. I loved the nickname "Bootface", it became my mum's nickname. ha ha I wish it was available on DVD I'd buy it now. Wish it was on the telly now. :) It wasn't meant to be a serious program. It was a kids program and it was entertaining. It was funny. I used to think Gary Shail was cute. I wanted my own Metal Mickey. It was just a cool program about a family in London who had a robot. Irene Handl was funny and entertaining. Mickey was a light hearted, friendly robot who tried to help around the house but ended up creating havoc instead.He was a five foot rotund silver robot who had red eyes, blue ears and a multitude of coloured lights on his chest, which also contained a glowing red heart.
