Hey guys, guess what Vance's TV Archive posted on YouTube today. :O


It's the original voice versions of Pilot, Politics, and an incomplete PU to PE. Now with better audio this time, despite PU to PE unfortunately cutting off halfway through the tape recording. I have these three saved on my harddrive before it goes gone...

Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? / Two things in Robot Jones I can't stand...
« Last post by Wer wie was on January 13, 2018, 07:57:53 PM »
There's two things in Robot Jones that I have been irritated by and can't stand.

For 1, offscreen kids speaking aloud the title cards (most often in unison)...
...and 2, the students laughing "HA HA HA HA HA HA HA"

Yeah, I can't handle it and it gets insanely annoying and irritating.  :-[ At the moment during last Christmas break I stopped watching Robot Jones because it's boring and also the kids get sooooo annoying.

Any thoughts?

It's not an update. It's just a prediction I had ahead of time. Research on copyright laws regarding leaking movies online, I think.

Ooh boy. Looks like someone who made that DVD might get threatened by CN for putting that DVD out there....

Well... fuck. But TBH, they had it coming. Hopefully CN didn't actually sue them. Where'd you hear about this update?

As far as whoever made the DVD goes, I'd be a little scared. Downloading the episodes that are completely unavailable is one thing, but putting out an illegal DVD is pretty ballsy. Though I'm surprised this is the first time I've ever seen someone make the attempt. Hope CN doesn't come crashing down on them.

Ooh boy. Looks like someone who made that DVD might get threatened by CN for putting that DVD out there. Well, I'm not putting my DVD out there as I only use it for private fan purposes only and I don't make a profit off it and don't sell it on any marketing platforms. But I think someone out there leaked his own Robot Jones Complete Series onto eBay because he/she knew that CN had no intention of releasing the show's episodes anytime soon. Here's one simple little thing: Just because your favorite TV show is lost and/or unreleased doesn't automatically mean you can make a bootleg DVD out of it and sell it out there, it's still illegal. Those who tried to put lost shows on DVD and market them out there can and have gotten sued for it. I remember that Masumi Jun got threatened for leaking Doraemon 1973 clips online, and I really doubt someone who worked at CTW Archives could've got threatened for leaking all those Sesame Street Season 1-12 shows (1969-1981) onto the Internet, hence Sesame Workshop was going around YouTube blocking so many full episodes and even some inserts (all of which were believed by many to have been rare or impossible to find over decades).

I think RJ Fan12 has the most accurate explanation for it. Although I've definitely noticed when episodes look different from each other, and some also look more' refined' than others. (And I hate using that word when it comes to this show.)

So let me reconsider the matching styles between episodes.

  • PU to PE = Summer Camp
  • Cube Wars = Growth Spurts
  • Embarrassment = Jealousy = Gender = Garage Band = Hookie 101 = Rules of Dating
  • Family Vacation = House Party
  • Math Challenge = The Yogmans Strike Back = School Newspaper
  • Sickness = Safety Patrol
  • Work = Popularity
  • Vacuum Friend = Scantron Love (except that "Scantron Love" changed to look like the style in "Jealousy" toward the middle of the episode)
  • Pilot = Hair = Obsession (Chuck Klein storyboarded both "Hair" and "Obsession", though storyboarded evidence of this exists)
  • Electric Boogaloo = RJ Opening Intro

The ones I consider strange apart from other episodes by style/production design are "Groovesicle", "Parents" and "Politics".

Or yet again I could be wrong. "Safety Patrol" looks 100% more like "Sickness". I have a feeling that "Popularity" actually looks more like "Work".

The DVD that someone made is on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Whatever-Happened-to-Robot-Jones-Complete-Series-DVD-Season-1-2-Cartoon-Network/292323158386?hash=item440fd16972:g:8uUAAOSwTm9aA4eq

I also made one myself, but using Latin-Spanish/Portuguese rips taken from Tooncast. I used the original voice audio for the S1 eps, also.
