I beat you to the punch on posting that. :P Still, it's good. Now then, the GIFs...














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

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.

Clancy is the only reoccurring adult who treats Robot pretty well. My only problem is that in Vacuum Friend, he was kind of a blank slate who kept referring to Robot as "the machine boy." He changes/becomes more familiar with Robot later on, but it's hard for me to let him bounce back from that, especially since that was a first episode, and unlike Shannon, who went under flanderization, Clancy started off kinda rude.
In fairness to Clancy, I don't really think he knew the full story there. When he actually confronts Robot at the end of the episode, Robot feels humiliated and saddened, but I don't think Clancy knew that. As far as he knows, Robot just went on a joyride with his vacuum cleaner.
Hm, Maybe you have a point.
Mr. Mitchell could have been useful for creating plots for later episodes. I was kind of disappointed that he had no input in Scantron Love, nor Safety Patrol. I feel like he could have become a mentor for Robot next to Clancy--a helpful adult there for advice and such.
That would've been cool, you could've had a nice contrast between him and Clancy in that regard. You also could've had scenes with Mitchell's technological expertise confounding Madman, who would get all salty at him, that might be funny.
Mitchell and Clancy would make a good team, I agree. I could even seem them teaming up to do something to McMcMc.

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."

This obviously isn't from an actual episode, but it's worth immortalizing because ThE cRiMinAL bLacK is the hero we need and deserve.

And people say that no one has fond memories of the show.

This made me smile more than it should have due to how rare a comment like this is. I kinda hope Miller sees this.

Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? / Re: Would you want a Robot Jones revival?

As long as the show doesn't fall into obscurity just like the PPG reboot did. Plus with retro stuff being revived (such as the Nokia 3310 for an example,) It should possibly happen.
The PPG reboot hasn't really fallen into obscurity, rather it's been paraded everywhere as a shiny monument of pure awfulness (and for good reason).

Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? / Re: Voice actor?

According to Greg Miller himself (and I'm quoting directly from the interview here), "it was actually not 'macintalk' junior, but the junior voice for the word98 text to speech function." ;)
Also, I'm deeply disturbed that Bobby Block has more votes.
It was actually MacInTalk Junior, however in the "Word 98 for Macintosh" program, there's actually a speech function that allows you to change pitch, speed, and stuff like that.

I do use it occasionally, but not as much ever since I got my Mac.
It was Word 98 dude, Greg Miller said so himself. He even specifically mentions changing the voice's pitch and speed to fit the lines in the interview.
