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)

Best Children's Cartoon of past 10 years
15 November 2005 | by winston84See all my reviews

The style was fantastic.

Usually when something is a "throwback" or "retro" it misses the point of the aesthetic of the era it is throwing back to.

It was a beautifully dirty looking cartoon (By dirty I mean dirty, not sexual or anything) but to look so intentionally is a brilliant choice... brilliantly executed.

Sometimes surreal, sometimes expressionistic, it's a cartoon that uses it's medium to its potential. The animation itself becomes part of the overall look of the show.

Obviously intended to recall the style of Shool House Rock Animation, Robot Jones is still sorely missed.

Not being a kid anymore, I wasn't an avid watcher of Saturday morning Cartoons, but I found this one irresistible. Sorry to see that it has gone.
