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 »

Very Funny Episode With Some Enjoyable Robots,, 17 September 2012
Author: Dillon Harris from Ireland

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.
