Chris Wedge & Carlos Saldanha, Robots, 2005

In a world populated solely by mechanical beings, Rodney Copperbottom, the son of a dish washing robot, sets off for the great Robot City in search of a career as an inventor. But life in the big city isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Soon, Rodney is jettisoned into the streets like a scrap of tin. Out in the slums, he encounters a band of misfits, including an obsolete robot named Fender. With the help of his new friends, young Rodney rises up and fights the sinister power that threatens their society and their very lives.
