The alarm system seen on the wall outside of the Radio Shack was purchased from SSI 2000, a security equipment wholesaler. See more »
In the scene where Johnny 5 is attacked, it is obviously summer as the leaves on the trees are in full bloom. In the scenes following Johnny's repair at the Radio Shack it appears to be late fall with no leaves on the trees even though a period of only a few hours has elapsed in the film. See more »
Frederick, I have an important question. Why do humans not like me, call me "craphead"?
They like you. They like you. Craphead is a compliment.

Early UK versions were cut by 5 secs by the BBFC to remove a shot of man holding nunchakus, and to edit 2 uses of the word "fucking" for a PG certificate (though some debate remains as to whether the swearing may have been misheard by mistake). The nunchaku shot was restored for the 2002 DVD release though the swearing remained cut. See more »
I watched this movie when I was around 11 years old (1991). It was great and I also saw Short Circuit 1. Short Circuit 2 was liked better by me back then and after watching them both again, I still like the 2nd one better. Johnny's voice is much better and he looks better too. The acting by the two leading men and the female department store worker is very good too. The plot in the movie is excellent and I recommend this movie to everyone. There's a lot of junk on T.V. these days and the quality has deteriorated very badly the last decade or so. This movie is the movie one needs to see if he wants to escape that junk and watch something that is enjoyable.
