In the retro-1980's future, robots have become commonplace. Mechanical butlers, electronic plumbers and robo-bartenders are part of everyday life, but Robot Jones is a different kind of machine altogether. He is an experimental prototype designed to interact with humans on a personal level. Though programmed with basic emotions, Robot Jones doesn't quite have a handle on dealing with them and thus, tends to be more overly dramatic and socially awkward than other teenagers. Surrounded by his antiquated and embarrassing robotic family, nerdy friends like "Socks," his crush Shannon and his nemesis Lenny and Denny (the Yogman Twins), Robot Jones conquers the drudgery of the sixth grade where he excels in gym class, runs for class president and dreads open house night at school.

"Whatever Happened to Robot Jones?" is a pretty good show. Robot Jones is a pretty interesting character, but the monotone voice does get quite irritating quickly after a while. The animation style is pretty cool on this show too. I think it pays homage to past animation in a way. By the way, does Paul Coker Jr. work on the animation? Because in a way, the way the characters are drawn kinda look like his art in a way.
Overall a good cartoon, but it might not be for everyone.
