The Plot
Even in a world populated entirely by mechanical beings Rodney Copperbottom is considered a genius inventor. Rodney dreams of two things, making the world a better place and meeting his idol, the master inventor Bigweld. On his journey he encounters Cappy, a beautiful executive `bot with whom Rodney is instantly smitten, the nefarious corporate tyrant Ratchet who locks horns with Rodney, and a group of misfit `bots known as the Rusties, led by Fender and Piper Pinwheeler.

Film Washing
One of Robots’ two brand mentions comes in the form of the famous Ricola yodel. The other brand, Velcro, is also part of a verbal joke. A final possible brand mention is Domino’s, though it is never clear if the reference to the “dominos delivery boy” is meant to evoke the pizza company or the fact that the game of dominos figures heavily in the film.
