I noticed that. He looks smaller and cutesier than usual, like in Vacuum Friend.

And we could forgive Vacuum Friend because it was only the second episode and they were still getting their bearings on the final character design and everything. But that late into season two? They kinda just got sloppy, if you asked me... or let in some new animators...  The only part I like animated in this one is the "PQ" scene.

The style in the Popularity episode was reminiscent of that in the episodes Family Vacation and House Party.

Robot Jones actually looked strange in the Hair episode.

They were probably running out of money for the budget and began to cut corners, probably after they knew the show was canceled.

Well, I guess I should probably start actually posting screenshots now, per the OP.

Of all the WHtRJ villains, Madman is the only one I actually like as a character. Yes, he's a nuisance for Robot and friends, but his status as an irritant isn't because of some petty, spiteful grudge like Mr. McMcMc's (McMcMc can go die in a fucking fire) or that of the Yogman Twins, but rather a genuine misunderstanding about and honest-to-God fear of technology. A lot of the time, he's doing things which you're supposed to do when you're a principal (like in Hookie 101 when he tried to apprehend RJ and friends for bunking school, though it seemed rather harsh for him to want to expel them over that; not that it mattered, anyway, because Dad Unit beat him up and got him arrested, which I'll admit was very funny  :P), and he actually ended up saving the day in Sickness by putting the Yogmans in detention for giving Robot a computer virus (and, if I recall correctly, that was the only time the Yogmans ever had to face punishment for their actions). This shot above perfectly captures Madman's character in my humble opinion; he's silly, he's full of himself, and he has no idea what he's doing.

I think that this is the only shot on the show where we see Robot pulling "the stink eye" at someone. This is no huge loss where I'm concerned, as "the stink eye" has been thoroughly ruined for me by Invader Zim (yes, that's right, I don't like IZ, come at me bro). Also, trying to do "the stink eye" in real life makes you look fucking retarded.
Anyway, that's all from me for now.

If you're talking about scenes like this, then I agree. He looks off, almost like he's not focused... RJ's look in most of this episode reminds me of the pilot, actually.

However, this episode does contain this epic shot right here. (http://i.imgur.com/iKpS7dX.png) For as corny looking as it is, I like it. I think it's the most emotion he shows in this entire episode, and shows a bit more of his personality.

Also, trying to do "the stink eye" in real life makes you look fucking retarded.
Anyway, that's all from me for now.

Oh boy, where to begin, where to begin? First off, thanks for sharing the spooky PU To PE shot. That scene used to actually give me the chills as a kid. :O It was the one scene I remembered the most after the show had been cancelled.

Second, I love his expression right here in the 2nd pick, what a little cutie. :3 But I find this one line of dialog even more interesting. Remember when we were discussing if Robot might believe in God and even be religious? Well, isn't this evidence that he is? I mean, it might be logical to assume that robots don't have a faith, but right here he references heaven, and he's even used the phrase "what the heck" in Jealousy. That's a sign leaning on the side of him actually having faith. I think that's neat. =)

Third pic, this and this scene from Jealousy:
(http://i.imgur.com/GqrhVpb.png)
are irrefutable evidence that Robot is capable of such things as blushing, which I think is important if only because, in understanding Robotís functionality, he is temperature sensitive. Thatís also why the cold was bothering him in Growth Spurts.(http://i.imgur.com/FjWwfIj.png)

Pic 4, oh yeah, I think this scene could even beat the PU to PE skeleton bot screenshot up at the top as the scariest moment on the show, but without the buildup of the shower scene. It's implied in the pilot and the notes for the show that Robot can get explosively angry, and implied that its the hardest of his emotions to control. This is an interesting branch of is personality that I wish the show had more time to explore. This scene in particular I feel is implying that some from of mechanical autopilot has taken over his mind that he can't really control, and he may even have resorted back to some primitive state of his programming.

Pics 5 and 6, we see him in front of the flag a lot, don't we? ^^; I almost wonder if Miller was using these frequent displays of patriotism mockingly, since the show seems to discuss anarchy a lot, too. This is interesting because animation is based off of School House Rock, and over a third of those music videos were based on patriotic history.

Pics 7 and 8, I agree with the foreshadowing concept, though I'm sorry to say that I find RJ's character fittingly unlikable in this episode. Unlike the other episodes were teasing or bullying or harassment MAY have driven him to extreme measures, and therefore the way RJ treats the students in this episode would have been justified, there is pretty much no reason for him to go tyrant on everybody right before this happened. When he wants into detention and gets chewed out by the other kids, it's pretty much deserved. Safety Patrol is the only episode where he actually earned the punishment he got at the end. Still, it's not a bad episode. I do like it because of the foreshadow element.

Pics 9-11, I'm not sure why they felt like they had to draw RJ a heart at all in these scenes, since it's not the internal device we're focusing on. In 9-10, we're looking at that hose thing, and in 11, we're looking at the slot where the Yogmans are going to insert that disk. There's really no reason for it to be shown unless we're seeing him suffer cartoon heart-break, where his heart literally cracks in half from Shannon's rejection or something like that. There is a more mechanical heart shown in the Pilot right here that might just simply be a closer shot of the basic looking hearts seen in those other episodes:
(http://i.imgur.com/1X0eepE.png)
And I even noticed there seems to be a key hole right in the center. "Key to my heart." More evidence that Robot is an old fashioned romantic. x3

Pic 12, can robot's vomit? Robot can vomit oil, anyways. But starting in season 2, Robot started eating actual food like toast and sandwiches, and it was never explained why, when he had been relying on his cord for nutrition before. XP

Pic 14, agreed, agreed. Though I think McMcMc has his complexities, too, Madman's a far more enjoyable "villain" to watch. I like McMcMc for him being in denial about his flaws, and showing that even adults can be spiteful and immature at times, even more so than some children.

Pic 15,... wait, I just posted about that one to someone else. I actually thought that expression was cute. xD

Pick 17, this may be part of RJ's maturity, I guess? He doesn't seem to feel to make people look stupid to make himself look better, but he WILL be brutally honest when he's correct. As opposed to Safety Patrol, RJ behaves very classy in Math Challenge. He's grown aware by this point that McMcMc is jealous of him, but he won't acknowledge it, but he also won't let the man bully him.

OOH!!! THANK YOU DOMINIQUE!!!!! The Hair episode actually does look like that PILOT EPISODE!!!! Oh, boy I knew that Hair ep would look like the Pilot, I thought Hair was so strange from other eps. Hair would now look like that Pilot episode because Robot Jones was chubby and fat!!! And guess what? Hair and Pilot are the only two episodes in the entire show to be FULLY drawn and animated like Dexter's Lab. I watched the Rules of Dating and Summer Camp, those two episodes looked kinda like The PowerPuff Girls, actually.

Ah, you're welcome. ^^; Anyway, yeah, I'm glad you brought that up. The first half of Hair does feature Robot looking a little too, erm, robotic, or something. Pilot Robot is ugly looking in a lot of frames, we all know that, but I'm pretty sure that it was a rush job. And it gets a pass, being the pilot for the series: it appears they were still working on smoothing out the rough parts of Greg and Mike's animation style when translated by a group of separate animators and what not. Hmm, now that you mention Dexter, I can kinda see a few parallels in the animation style...

Oh, should I mention while we're on it the little interesting faces he makes in Summer Camp, particularly when Shannon was around.  ???

Agreed. Though I'm looking at this old post now and not sure why I said that, since a couple of those last episodes like Rules of Dating and Garage Band have excellent animation and color. They even gave the school a makeover instead of leaving it whitewash.

Good point... it's a little hard to tell but for the changes from season 1 to season 2, though some a segments look the tiniest bit more cleaned up, I guess, than their partner b segments, and such. They were really looking good by the time Rules of Dating came out. Assuming that season 3 would have carried over the best of what we saw of season 2, it's just another pity. =(

(http://i.imgur.com/qWasd36.jpg)
Robot's facial expression here vaguely reminds me of the Brave Little Toaster title character for some reason.
(http://i.imgur.com/eRDYkl3.jpg)
I think the remote-like thing coming out of his mouth is his version of a tongue? It looks considerably less human-like than the one in Garage Band, maybe they "upgraded" him.
(http://i.imgur.com/P8Fuygx.jpg)
Shannon's facial expression looks vaguely seductive here. I think she wants cock (more on that later).
(http://i.imgur.com/Evct40J.jpg)
Hair has so many rape faces.

No comment.

(http://i.imgur.com/PYTNONW.jpg)
These are from the original pilot and Garage Band respectively, odd how they kept the appearance of his underside so consistent despite the distance between those episodes. You see that hatch towards the front? I'm not saying he definitely has a cock, but if he does, that's where it'd come out from.

Post by: Kartoonfanatic on January 02, 2017, 08:37:11 PM
1) That first one did look oddly sad, for what he was about to do. Then the smirk he makes after that implies to me that he's going to have sex with the Scantron or something, not get more answer sheets.

2) He's moody. :3

3) Robot: "Actually McMcMc, I, believe you meant to say that you are a cockhead."

I also hate how one of the few spelling mistakes I made on the captions shows up here. -_-

Alright, so these aren't going to be representative of my favorite screenshots, but I'm bored, so I thought after my recent villains thread and one-episode characters thread, I may as well post shots of some of the less prominent characters from the show in here, just so they're online and easily accessible in case the need for that ever arises. I'll also provide a bit of commentary, as I usually do. Let's peel the band-aid off quick and start with Gender.

SO COOL HE ONLY NEEDS ONE SCENE
(http://i.imgur.com/wFNogAl.jpg)
THE MOST COMPETENTLY UTILIZED CHARACTER IN HISTORY---STEEEEEEEEEVE
Jokes aside, this guy looks more and more like a Columbine shooter wanna-be whenever I see him. I have no idea why Socks, Mitch and Cubey like him so much, or why the episode's plot felt the need to turn them into misogynistic bullies when they'd already established Steve.
(http://i.imgur.com/OJzeH9z.jpg)
OH NO OH NO WATCH OUT HE'S REMOVING HIS GLASSES
(http://i.imgur.com/nNdAdC4.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/al23rpX.jpg)
Why are these two shots so intense? I mean, look at them. Coupled with Steve removing his glasses, it looks like he's about to assault Robot, or something.
(http://i.imgur.com/dYCoW4A.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/6YB1oJR.jpg)
Don't worry about Steve's shirt guys, he has plenty with how far into the closet he lives.
(http://i.imgur.com/91qj69l.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/16ThBXq.jpg)
My favorite part about this is the smug smile spread across Mitch's face as he observes the sacred shirt-stomping ritual. "Yes Steve, please continue freaking Robot out, this is the sort of thing I see in role models which inspires me."
(http://i.imgur.com/ui99tfl.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/TEji6u3.jpg)
In fairness, this is basically how I reacted when I watched Gender for the first time.

Robot's soul is being ripped out of his body by how bad this episode is.
(http://i.imgur.com/0AR4FDB.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/c9Y2AY1.jpg)
I'm so glad that Shannon never appears in this episode and that Pam was given the spotlight in this big obligatory boys vs. girls episode instead, because Pam is such a likable character that everyone can relate to.
(http://i.imgur.com/SSweNEO.jpg)
"Maybe we can get it to help us with our project."
Sarcasm aside, it really is incredibly messed up that Pam called Robot that. Even the Yogmans, Principal Madman and Mister McMcMc have enough respect for Robot to refer to him as "he", "him", etc. and not "it". Oh, and that's consistent because Pam is heard calling Robot "it" in Electric Boogaloo as well. Speaking of consistency...
(http://i.imgur.com/itKOE5b.jpg)
Don't y'all ever tell me that this show doesn't have continuity; Pam farting and blaming it on Robot is so obviously a clever callback to Embarrassment! We're ending the Gender screenshots on a high note, fellas.

I'll make a post for more of the minor characters later. In the meantime, here's some more robotic goodness with Robot having buzz saws for hands, getting brain freeze and being blue (though only two of those are overlapping).

SO COOL HE ONLY NEEDS ONE SCENE
THE MOST COMPETENTLY UTILIZED CHARACTER IN HISTORY---STEEEEEEEEEVE
Jokes aside, this guy looks more and more like a Columbine shooter wanna-be whenever I see him. I have no idea why Socks, Mitch and Cubey like him so much, or why the episode's plot felt the need to turn them into misogynistic bullies when they'd already established Steve.

I think you laid it on there a tinsey bit thick there, old pal. With that wannabe Columbine shooter thing.
I'm pretty sure Steve is a character that, like Mitch, Cubey, and even Socks, started off as a background character that had little importance or established traits, but who was set up to be referred to again in later episodes. They have a character just like this in a lot of cartoons from this period, the one that comes to mind in particular is Recess's gossip kid, seen here:

The role of the Gossip Kid (that's literally his most official title on the show, if you don't count his actual name), is to slither out of the shadows, scare the main kids with some exaggerated story of something or someone they have to deal with, then slither back and never be seen again for that episode. You know what I mean? That's basically Steve, just in fourth grade. Angelica of Rugrats is also a part-time Gossip Kid. She'll tell the babies more about something they are unsure about, and it'll be exaggeratedly false, but she gets enjoyment out of them panicking about the unknown. Steve here is just a smug 8th grader who acts like he knows more about stuff because he's in 8th grade and these boys and Robot are in 6th and 7th grade. Or he's smug because he's (claimed to have) had more experience with girls. The part that's throwing me off is that he seems to have a legitimate issue with girls from a previous relationship not working out. He's not spinning a yarn about how girls are all evil just to spook the boys and watch them freak out. His ripping his shirt off and throwing it on the ground and stomping on it means he's legitimately angry. So I think that's where his role as the Gossip kid archetype gets blurry. He's got actual experience, but he's still an unreliable source of wisdom in that he is biased.

I'm so glad that Shannon never appears in this episode and that Pam was given the spotlight in this big obligatory boys vs. girls episode instead, because Pam is such a likable character that everyone can relate to.
Yeah, there are definitely positives and negatives for Shannon not existing in this episode. A point for her sake in that I want her to have been a become a more developed and sympathetic character later on. This would have definitely made things more complicated. It's two bad she became so flanderized. Whereas Pam is slowly being developed in the opposite direction, and that's alright as long as the episode acknowledges her as the villain, and if there's anything you can say here, is that SHE IS CLEARLY THE VILLAIN HERE. (Nobody on tumblr will ever see this, but I thought I should make that said.)

Don't y'all ever tell me that this show doesn't have continuity; Pam farting and blaming it on Robot is so obviously a clever callback to Embarrassment! We're ending the Gender screenshots on a high note, fellas.

Yeah, despite that being a really awkward climax to a really awkward episode, at least there was a callback. And the strange thing about it is that I didn't even realize what the hell just happened the first few times I watched this episode. All I understood was the girls were suddenly grossed out by Robot landing on Pam and left. I honestly thought something dirty was implied by that the first time I saw this episode, because the fart sequence was so fast and random... yeah. This episode...

I'll make a post for more of the minor characters later. In the meantime, here's some more robotic goodness with Robot having buzz saws for hands, getting brain freeze and being blue (though only two of those are overlapping).

From PU To PE, Hookie 101 and The Yogmans Strike Back respectively.
All I got to say is, Robot is damn cute when he is sipping that Slurpee--I mean "Super Cooler."

Well everyone, I've got some new material for you all now. Not screenshots, but GIFs.

The first one is long enough that Imgur considers it a video instead, so I'll have to leave it as a link. There may be more on the way.

Special thanks to Imgur and Giphy, this post would not have been possible without them.

This is a screenshot from Family Vacation; it's the scene where Robot extends his neck and sticks his head into the van to escape the biker leader. I'm posting it on the phenq site (https://theskinnyvibes.com/phenq-reviews-and-results/) here because of how damn briefly it's onscreen, like, "blink and you'll miss it" levels of speed.

Great screenshot! It is really "blink and you'll miss it". I also have a few "blink and you'll miss it" screenshots and will post them soon.
