Thank you George Takei for sharing this on Facebook.  Wall-E is the new Waldo.  It is now my desktop background and brings me much happiness.

How many ways are there to classify these?  Well, too many to count, probably.  Here are some ways that have come to mind, but this is by no means an inclusive list.

  • cartoon vs. live action robots
  • movie vs. T.V. robots
  • by era (decades shown or time period of show featuring them)
  • genre (sounds obvious, but Tom Servo from MST3K is comedy; Bender from Futurama, a comedy; Kryten from Red Dwarf, which is sci fi and comedy)
  • by size, shape, or color
  • by function
  • humanoid vs. non-humanoid robots
Can any of you think of additional ways to classify them?  Or maybe point out one of your favorite robots.


  1. Isn't that awesome? I saw that earlier today. Hehehe! My inner geek was in heaven.

  2. Yowsa. There's a lot going on in that picture. But if George Takei likes it, it must be trendy :)
