automatizing things step by step
8 December 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

As Sylvester's career was winding down, he starred in "Nuts and Volts", in which he uses a robot to try and catch Speedy Gonzales. The robot has no more luck than he has! Is this Sylvester's eternal doom?! One thing that I notice is that the robot looks a little bit like Rosie on "The Jetsons". I guess that in the early '60s, many American families dreamed about having technology do everything for us. Unfortunately, relying too much on machines distances us from the natural world (and there's always the risk that the machines could take over; or at least become more human than us, as happens in Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey").

I'm probably reading too far into this cartoon. It was probably intended as entertainment, and it entertains. I just like to analyze things as much as possible. Worth seeing.
