Storyline

In the retro-1980's future, robots have become commonplace. Mechanical butlers, electronic plumbers and robo-bartenders are part of everyday life, but Robot Jones is a different kind of machine altogether. He is an experimental prototype designed to interact with humans on a personal level. Though programmed with basic emotions, Robot Jones doesn't quite have a handle on dealing with them and thus, tends to be more overly dramatic and socially awkward than other teenagers. Surrounded by his antiquated and embarrassing robotic family, nerdy friends like "Socks," his crush Shannon and his nemesis Lenny and Denny (the Yogman Twins), Robot Jones conquers the drudgery of the sixth grade where he excels in gym class, runs for class president and dreads open house night at school. Written by Cartoon Network (press release)

I'm afraid some of these reviewers don't know what they're talking about.
24 July 2006 | by brownshoes-1See all my reviews

This was & is probably one of my favorite cartoons ever to air on CN. Robot Jones is an incredibly visually exciting show to watch. The animation is interesting and quite well done, obviously paying homage to 'Schoolhouse Rock.' When reviewers here complain of "awful animation," they are obviously speaking of the art style employed. It's an intentionally shoddy look - things are supposed to look sketchy and scratchy. It's a shame that some potential viewers could be thrown off by these inaccurate reviews. I found it to be a very fun, amusing, & engaging program. Certainly a lot better than the Americanized-anime action programs they've got running now.
