In a scene, we find the camera cutting to zoomed-up images of the Robinson family portraits, which appear to be hand-painted. In many of those shots the signature 'Ruppel 2005' can be found, referring to Robh Ruppel, who was the Art Director of the film and was part of the Art Department in past Disney films. See more »
During the 'pop quiz' scene, where Wilbur is asking Lewis about all he knows about the Robinsons, Lewis refers to Wilbur's dad as 'your dad, Cornelius'. He does not meet Cornelius before this point and no one told him Wilbur's dad's name, yet he knew anyway. See more »

In the 3D version, most of the closing credits are in 2D; however, the credits for the people who created the 3D version are in 3D. See more »
I was pleasantly surprised at how much a 50's something mom of a teenager liked this movie.
I went to the theater this afternoon to catch an R-rated film and goofed on the times. The only movie available in my time frame allowed was Meet the Robinsons. I reluctantly bought a ticket and was pleasantly rewarded with a movie experience that reminded me very much of my childhood. When we got to go to the movies in the 50's and 60's, there were trailers, followed by the newsreel and then a cartoon before the main attraction. The non-three D version started with non-R rated trailers, followed by a Mickey Mouse cartoon (loved it!) and then the main feature. It was very entertaining to sit back and relax and not worry about the good guys dying, the amount of slaughter that would be portrayed, or that there wouldn't be a positive message at the end. As an adult, there were enough references to keep me entertained and from the sounds of the kids in the theater, they were obviously enjoying this movie. I would highly recommend it to all but the crankiest movie-goers, and I personally loved the quote from Uncle Walt at the end of the movie. When I was little, our whole family watched Walt Disney every Sunday and I particularly remember when it changed to Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. Walt Disney was a man ahead of his time and I really miss his adventurous spirit and inquisitive mind. He introduced and ended each episode and I really enjoyed seeing him every week. I wish that Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color was still on every week and that new episodes would still be made.
