Storyline

Mr. Burns replaces all of Springfield Power Plant's employees with robots but decides to keep Homer as the sole human worker. With unemployment at an all-time high and mechanical arms operating the workplace, Springfield becomes a dismal and humorless place. But when Homer's machine-programmed peers start to turn on the community and his former real-life employees come to the rescue, they all realize that robots can't replace human friends.

Trivia

While waiting in line to have his blood test at work, Homer prays for good results and then begins to "...mumble in a religious fashion. Dear God. Oh Lord. ...Oh Lord Almighty." and when he reaches "...abba-dabba-dabba-dabba" nonsense, you can hear someone in the recording booth let out a wheezing laugh. This may have been ad-lib material from the actor, Dan Castellaneta, not originally intended for the final cut. See more »

Quotes

Ned Flanders: Homer, I believe this is the part in God's plan where you get killed by robots.
Homer Simpson: Oh, Flanders. I don't judge a robot by the color of their eyes. I judge them by what they have in their hands, which have turned into buzzsaws.

Very Funny Episode With Some Enjoyable Robots,
17 September 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Them Robot is a great Simpsons episode with a good storyline,plenty of funny jokes and a great guest appearance from Star Trek:The Next Generations Brent Spiner voicing all the robots.I found the episode to be very entertaining with a very different storyline compared to what you would usually be use to from The Simpsons,but a good kind of different.

Mr Burns replaces all of his Nuclear Power Plant employees with robots,except for Homer,you messes with the robots settings for his own fun.
