Meet the Robinsons () tells the story of a young inventor, LEWIS, Lewis doesn't get a chance to try his memory scanner because his alarm goes off. He knocks over a bunch of frogs, and some strange girl (FRANNY) insists . At the same time, we see that kids still talked to him, but Goob never paid.
Fritz is married to Petunia, and is she Tallulah and Laszlo are their children. Joe is married to Billie. Lefty is the butler. Spike and Dimitri are twins, and I don't know who they're related to. Lucille is married to Bud, and your dad, Cornelius, is their son. What does Cornelius look like? Okay, Cornelius is married to Franny, and her brothers are Gaston and Art. Wilbur is the son of Franny and Cornelius. And nobody realised you were from the past?
Thank you very much. Doris, get it off! I've got you now. No, Lewis is my stupid roommate. My name's Mike Yagoobian. People call me Goob, but today, everyone that beat me up called me "puke face" and "butterfingers" and "booger breath. I didn't mean to Well, I was just looking for Lewis. He's always up there being dumb. Why didn't I think of that? Mr Steak, you're my only friend. Game didn't go so well, huh? No, I fell asleep in the ninth inning, and I missed the winning catch.
Then I got beat up. Afterwards, Coach took me aside and told me to let it go. Everyone will tell you to let it go and move on, but don't. Instead, let it fester and boil inside of you. Take these feelings and lock them away.
Let them fuel your actions. Let hate be your ally, and you will be capable of wonderfully horrid things. Heed my words, Goob. Don't let it go. Where is that boy?
Separate and look for clues. Look what I found! Now, what did you find? That plus my stick must mean I don't even know what I'm doing. I mean, this stuff is way too advanced for me. And what if I can't fix this? Why do you keep saying that? And don't just say, "Keep moving forward. Why would his motto be "keep moving forward"?
It's what he does. What's that supposed to mean? Robinson Industries, the world's leading scientific-research-and-design factory. My dad runs the company. They mass produce his inventions. His motto, "Keep moving forward. Carl, the time machine, the travel tubes. Your dad invented the time machine? Five years ago, Dad wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. He wants to build a time machine, so he starts working.
We're talking scale models. Dark day at the Robinson house. Prototypes two and three, not much better. Number six, 58,and they all end the same way. But he doesn't give up. Dude, I can't take you seriously in that hat. He keeps working and working until finally he gets it, the first working time machine. Then he keeps working and working until finally he gets it again, the second working time machine. I'm assuming that's a joke. I'm ignoring you for time reasons.
This, my friend, is merely a model because, unfortunately, time machine number two is in the hands of the Bowler Hat Guy. Now, are you ready to start working? I think that's it. I knew you could. Nice work, my friend. Well, you know what they say! If you aren't up here in five minutes, I'm gonna come down and get you! We'd better get up there. Let's get that boy! But I want to look, too. I didn't even know you could do that. Let's take her out for a spin. Now, to lure him out of the house.
I'll blow it up! No, that won't work. Then he'll be dead. I'll turn him into a duck! Yes, it's so evil! I don't know how to do that. I don't really need a duck. This may be harder than I thought. No, no, no, no, ring this doorbell. That doorbell will give you a rash. I'm two for two, man. If they don't do it on purpose, it doesn't count. Read your rule book. You can take your rule book and shove it right I don't believe in fretting or grieving Why mess around with strife?
Guess I was cut out To step out and strut out Give me the simple life Ladies and gentlemen, dinner is served. I want a sloppy joe! Oh, Billie, could you please pass the gravy? Coming to you, big girl. Reminds me of the time my meatball pizza staved off civil war on the black moon of Keward. Where's my sloppy joe? Thank you for the gravy, Aunt Billie. Why is the kid still here? Any of this ring a bell? Science fair, Memory Scanner, a time stream that needs fixing?
He's just having a little confidence issue. I've got it under control. So, Lewis, are you in Wilbur's class? Well, yes and no.
Lewis is a new transfer student. I think you mean North Montana. Hasn't been called Canada in years. Do you know Sam Gundersen? Then we can see if he has the family cowlick. He can't, because he's got bad hat-hair. A North Montana man doesn't care about hat-hair. Let's see the cowlick! All right, everyone, hold your horses. Lewis, do you mind? I'm afraid this isn't gonna stop otherwise.
Now, don't be shy. Surely, that is not the best you can do. Your skills are strong, but not strong enough. Your words do not threaten me, brother. Now the real battle begins. Your meatballs are useless against me. Then perhaps it's time for spicy Italian sausage! Is dinner like this every night? No, yesterday, we had meatloaf. Okay, gang, time for the second course.
And what goes better with meatballs than P. Hey, that's just like Is everything all right? We're just experiencing bugs. Just what the doctor ordered. My friend Lewis is an inventor. He can fix it. Wilbur, you know I can't. Give it a try. You don't understand what's at stake here.
Uncle Joe's seen the toast! We're past the point of no return! If he doesn't get P. You would really be helping us out, Lewis. One dragonfly on the rocks, please, Mr Barkeep. Hey, hey, Frankie, baby, you gotta tell us one of your jokes. How about that one with the bullfrog? All right, you bozos. Have to get that boy out of the house. So I turn to the bullfrog, and you know what I says?
Talking frogs with their own little outdoor bar, and so smartly dressed! I says, "Hey, not with my umbrella, you don't. That's a good buzz. You are now under my control. I am now under your control.
Did you just say, "Excellent," because I said, "Excellent"? I've recalibrated the dispensing conduits and aligned the ejection mechanism and There he is, that repulsive, half-witted fool!
Now, my slave, seize the boy. Bring him to me. Did you not hear what I said, you idiot? Grab the boy and bring him! Well, it's just that there's a million people over there, and I have little arms.
I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through. Okay, that should do it. Let her rip, Lewis! Uncle Joe can't hold on much longer. Is it gonna work? From failing, you learn. From success, not so much. If I gave up every time I failed, I never would have made the meatball cannon. I never would have made my fireproof pants. Still working out the kinks.
Like my husband always says Keep moving Keep moving Stop Okay, talking frog, not a good minion. Need another henchman, something large, not too bright. Something that won't talk back. What is he still doing here? Get rid of him. Hey, what are you doing? Get your lousy mitts off of me! You're gonna regret this! I wonder if I should tell Doris.
No, I'll make it a surprise. All right, everyone, quiet down. I propose a toast to Lewis and his brilliant failure. May it lead to success in the future. Gosh, you're all so nice. If I had a family, I I'd want them to be just like you.
Oh, well, then, to Lewis! What if Louis Armstrong said, "I can't"? You think he'd have walked on the moon? Dear, Louis Armstrong was a singer. What did he mean, if he had a family? Oh, Lewis is an orphan. Get up, you pansy! What a great plan! Go back in time and steal a dinosaur. Oh, Doris will be so proud of me. Why didn't you tell me you had a pet dinosaur? He's standing right here.
No, you can't eat him! I need him alive. You messed with the wrong family! Okay, everybody, this dino's deep-dished. Now, go get that boy! Why aren't you seizing the boy? I have a big head I'm just not sure Him you can eat.
Little Doris now sleeps with the fishes.Meet the Robinsons, Goob controls talking frog
Guess we made a pretty good team, huh? Yeah, guess we did. Yeah, didn't you see us take out that dinosaur? It was so cool, Mom! Oh, I mean, I'm sorry. Oh, Lewis, it's okay. I'm really happy you're safe.
It's just a bruise, Lewis. You all sacrificed so much for me. One of a kind. Okay, you should get him out of here before something really bad happens. I've got it all under control. Okay, everybody, it's been a long, hard day filled with emotional turmoil and dinosaur fights, so why don't you all hit the hay, and Lewis and me will get going? Do you have to go now?
I mean, you know, it's getting late. Maybe Lewis could spend the night. Mom, maybe some other time, okay? Well, any time you want to come over, you just come over. You have to stay. I mean, who would be a better family for you than us? What do you say, Lewis? Do you want to be a Robinson? You want to adopt me? I'm from the past. Now you know the big secret.
Wilbur, what have you done? How could you bring him here? Please, don't get mad at Wilbur. He was just being a good friend. Lewis, I am so sorry, but you have to go. I know what I said. Lewis, look at me.
You're a great kid, and we would never do anything to hurt you, but I'm sorry. You have to go back to your own time. Yeah, about that, one of the time machines is broken, and the other one was stolen by a guy with a bowler hat, which kind of explains the dino. I'm calling your father. If I have to leave, can I at least go back and find my mom? I was never gonna do it. I can't believe I was dumb enough to actually believe you were my friend!
I am your friend! Mister, you're grounded till you die. Oh, yes, Doris, it is a shame. All he wants to do is go back in time to meet the mother he never knew, but they won't let him. We'd let him, though.
Too bad we don't have a time machine. To make your dream come true. All you have to do is put Humpty Dumpty back together again, and we'll take you back to find your mommy. Let's just talk about this, Lewis. I know you're around here somewhere. I can't imagine why you're so interested in this piece of junk.
That's for me to know and you to find out. Now, show me how to work this thing. Well, supposing it did, and if one were presenting the invention to, say, a board of directors for a very large invention company, where might one find the "On" switch? Hypothetically speaking, of course.
All right, first, you turn this knob twice, then push this red button, and that's it. What a stupid way to turn it on!
Okay, take me to see my mom now. We had a deal! Why are you doing this to me? I never did anything to you. You still haven't figured it out? Well, let's see if this rings a bell. Father of the Future, inventor extraordinaire, "Keep moving forward"? Are you saying that I'm Wilbur's dad? Give the boy a prize. You grew up to be the founder of this wretched time, so I plan to destroy your destiny. So if I'm Wilbur's dad If I'm Wilbur's dad Yes, thank you, we've established that.
But what does that have to do with you? Allow me to shed some light on the subject. I think you mean our old room. Yes, it is I, Mike Yagoobian! I'm disgusting, but one learns to love it.
How did you end up like this?

Well, it's a long and pitiful story about a young boy with a dream, a dream of winning a Little League championship, a dream that was ruined in the last inning. We lost by one run because of me. If I hadn't fallen asleep, I would have caught the ball! And we would have won!
For some reason, no one wanted to adopt me. Whiz kid Cornelius Robinson graduates from college at age This year's Nobel Prize goes to a young Cornelius Robinson. Hey, Goob, what's up? Hey, Goob, wanna come over to my house today? They all hated me. Eventually, they closed down the orphanage and everyone left, except me. Cornelius Robinson rebuilds Inventco.

Make sure you shut that door tight, or else the alarm won't engage. I went to your house, snuck in the garage and stole the time machine, all thanks to that pointy-haired little kid who forgot to lock the garage door. And now all that's left is to return to Inventco, where I'll pass off your little gizmo as my own. But you have no idea what that could do to this future! I just want to ruin your life. Goob, I had no idea.
And don't call me Goob! How many evil villains do you know who can pull off a name like Goob? Look, I'm sorry your life turned out so bad, but don't blame me.
You messed it up yourself. You just focused on the bad stuff when all you had to do was let go of the past and keep moving forward. Take responsibility for my own life or blame you. This is gonna be the best day of my life! Doris, would you be a dear and open the hatch for me, please?
Well, I hate to foil your evil plan and run, but ta-ta! I bet you're glad to see me. That's for not locking the garage door. You know about that? You gotta admit, this will be a great story to tell me someday. Look at that, boys. We're almost home free. Take a good look around, boys, because your future is about to change. Lewis, you have to fix the time machine. What about your dad? You could call him. There won't be a future unless you fix the time machine. Look, I messed up.
I left the garage unlocked, and I've tried like crazy to fix things, but now it's up to you. You can do it, Dad. Prepare to be amazed. So, Yagoobian, any other ideas you'd like to share with us? I call them Helping Hats. I just wanted to ruin his future, not this. No, this can't be happening! Oh, Lewis, it's already happened. Why did I ever invent that stupid hat? Take a good look around, Doris, 'cause your future's about to change. You don't know what you're doing! I'm ruining your future. She's using you, Goob, and when she gets what she wants, she'll get rid of you.
I am never going to invent you. I've got to show you something. I thought she was my friend. You did it, Lewis. I'll hold him while you run for help. He's the bad guy. I'll give you three good reasons. He stole our time machine, tried to ruin your future, and he smells like he hasn't showered in 30 years! May I remind you, I'm your father, and you have to do what I say. Okay, Mr Yagoobian, do you want to be a No, no, I'm fine.
In fact, better than I've felt in a long time. Oh, this is terrible! Franny, where are you? The time machines are gone! Ratted out by the old lady. Yeah, beats working in an office every day.
Want to see the one I'm most proud of? Oh, no, no, no. It was our first real invention. It's the one that started it all. So if I go back now, then this will be my future.
Well, that depends on you. Nothing is set in stone. You gotta make the right choices and keep moving forward. Since it's gonna work this time, that means I We won't finally get to see what Mom looks like? Do we ever meet her? I think you're just gonna have to get back to that science fair and find out for yourself. I had a feeling you were gonna say that.
That's because we are one smart kid. See you later, Lewis! Oh, don't forget the mashed potatoes! Hey, while I got you here, just a couple of little suggestions regarding my design. Let's face it, these skinny limbs don't exactly make the teapot whistle. All that really matters is, hey, don't forget to invent me.
There's so many things I wish I could ask you. Time travel now, questions later. Just get back to that science fair, and we'll see you real soon.

Right, okay, I will. Lewis, one more thing. Just a little tip for the future. I am always right. Even when I'm wrong, I'm right. I'd just go with it if I were you. Then you're absolutely right. All right, I'm coming. Well, it's not like you're never gonna see them again. They are your family, after all. You're supposed to take me back to the science fair. Well, I think you punched in the wrong numbers. We agreed that, if you fixed the time machine, I'd take you back to see your mom.
A deal's a deal. I don't get it. Why'd you just let her go? Because I already have a family. I never thought my dad would be my best friend. Now, now, don't make me come and bail you out again. Remember, I've got a time machine. If you mess up again, I'll just keep coming back till you get it right. I don't think that's possible. You better get going.
See you later, Wilbur. Mr Willerstein, I know what went wrong. Can I have one more chance? My ride isn't here yet, so fire it up. I need a volunteer. Now, just give me a date to input. So I devised a brilliant plan to get my revenge.

Bowler Hat Guy "I know! I'll turn him into a duck! Yes, yes it's so evil! I don't know how to do that I don't really need a duck.
Goob is one until he takes the advice of his future self. Doris lets one out when she gets erased from existence. Department of Redundancy Department: Krunklehorn says "One of your students may invent the next integrated circuit, or microprocessor, or integrated circuit Oh wait, I said that already! Justified since she is sleep deprived and only awake due to her caffeine patches. As Wilbur lets Lewis know, he keeps inventing until something works, even if he fails spectacularly hundreds of times in the process.
His motto isn't "Keep Moving Forward" for nothing. Didn't Think This Through: Pretty much Bowler Hat Guy's main defining characteristic. The first time it's a CEO. The second time it's a talking frog. The third time it's Tiny the Tyrannosaur innocently lampshading it, finally causing Bowler Hat Guy to have a minor Villainous Breakdown. I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through, Master. Lewis was dropped off at the orphanage's doorstop as an infant, and a good chunk of his motivation in the film is to find out who his mother is.

A more serious one happens earlier, when Wilbur removes Lewis' hat and the rest of the Robinsons realize that Lewis is Cornelius' past self, although none of them admit it due to not wanting to cause a Temporal Paradox. While Tiny the T. The result of the Bad Future where Doris successfully manipulates everyone into making and wearing mind-control hats. The Bowler Hat Guy's initial plan to get back at the Robinson family is throwing eggs at their house while shouting "You stink, Robinson!
The buildings in the Bad Future are all hat-shaped. For one thing, he has Doris hover outside the windows and acting as his teleprompter, and when she has to hide to avoid being noticed, Bowler Hat Guy must claim that the sun is in his eyes, unintentionally causing the CEO to lower the blinds, sending him off the rails completely.
Therefore his attempt to demonstrate the product doesn't go well at all because he doesn't know what does what, eventually resulting in him running the really comfy headphones all the way across the table to the CEO. When the timer runs out, the machine falls off his end and Bowler Hat Guy and the CEO end up wrapped together in the headphone cords. So, where do I sign? Even Bowler Hat Guy only wanted to ruin one kid's future, and never wanted to enslave humanity, as Doris ends up doing in the Bad Future.
Bowler Hat Guy wants to ruin Lewis' life because he's really Goob and believes Lewis ruined his life because Lewis' invention made him sleepy during a game which made him bitter and which turned off prospective parents. Expanded States of America standard: Face Death with Dignity: At the end, Bowler Hat Guy quietly leaves Lewis without saying goodbye, knowing that preventing his younger self from missing the baseball will cause this version of himself to be Ret Gone from existence.
The huge Tyrannosaurus Rex is named During the science fair, a girl's bunch of frogs is scattered all over the floor. It won't be the last time you see a bunch of frogs; it won't be the last you see of that girl, either. Or, if you look real hard you can see some of the billboards contain a few. The "Brain Scanners from Mars" directly inspires the creation of the Memory Scanner, but it also bares a remarkable resemblance to Doris' mind-control hat-apocalypse.
Only two characters have Exhausted Eye Bags as part of their designs: Goob and Bowler Hat Guy. Additionally, Bowler Hat Guy's demotivational speech to Goob, telling him to hold onto his grudges forever until it poisons him is a hint to the fact that Bowler Hat Guy really is Goob.
Meet the robinsons frogs singing scene
Not to mention, Goob never told Bowler Hat Guy he was in a game. Plus his face says more. Carl using an upgraded but still buggy peanut butter and jelly gun is a hint to the fact that Lewis is Cornelius Robinson. Another example of the movie's motto of "Keep Moving Forward" and shows the dangers of holding a grudge. Case in point, the Bowler Hat Guy aka Goob. One of the "to do" items on Bowler Hat Guy's list is "Ruin science fair". That's where he succeeded.
Bowler Hat Guy has one. Doris the helper hat is just evil. Lewis calls Franny "Mom". Which gets slightly odd when we learn she's his future wife. In the dystopian alternate-future. You know they're Future Badass because the ladies all sport black lipstick.
Otherwise, they're just hat-zombies. AKA boy genius, child prodigy, whiz kid Lewis graduates college at fourteen. Especially impressive when you remember that Lewis was adopted when he was twelve. Although it probably helped that his eventual adoptive mother is a scientist This conversation between Bowler Hat Guy and Frankie the frog: You are now under my control!
I am now under your control. Hee hee hee hee! Hee hee hee hee. Don't repeat everything I say! I won't repeat everything you say. Uh, did you just say "excellent" because I said "excellent"? The fact that she invented a caffeine patch doesn't help matters. Surrounding the Future City, with the Robinson house on top of one of them. Lewis is down after another family refused to adopt him and believes that his own mother didn't want him.
Mildredthe director of the orphanage, tries to cheer him up by telling him that maybe his mother did want him but had no choice other than to give him up. However, Lewis takes this in the meaning that definetly wanted him and decides that his only hope of a happy family is to track her down.
In the Bad Futurewhen Bowler Hat Guy is horrified by what Doris has done, he calls her out on it but is swarmed by a cloud of hat-drones and pulled down out of view. Then another one appears onscreen, with her very sharp claws at the ready, and that's all we get to see.
The director's commentary states that jealousy of Cornelius Robinson is Bowler Hat Guy's entire motivation for his villainy. Lewis manages to find a family in the end. As the movie shows, he grows to love every weird bit of it. Goob looks well on his way to this after Lewis wakes him up in time to catch the fly ball and win the game for the Dinos.
Until he meets Doris, and even then he is hopelessly incompetent at being evil. Just after the whole Time Travel adventure has succeeded in setting right what once went wrong, Cornelius Robinson, Lewis' future self, arrives home just in time to see the time machines missing and Lewis standing with the rest of the family.

The truth is a lot more sinister: Uh, what do you hope to accomplish with this? Oh, nothing of consequence, I simply wish to Uh, after that, it's You mean you haven't thought this through? Frankie the Frog, B. Now, my slave, seize the boy! Bring him to me. Did you not hear what I said, you idiot? Grab the boy and bring him!
Well, it's just that there's a million people over there, and I have little arms. I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through Now, go get that boy! Why aren't you seizing the boy? I have a big head Ugh, stupid, stupid, stupid! It Runs in the Family: And it runs in about four different actual families. Averted with Goob, whose evolution into a villain is only due to his constant dwelling on a painful event and subsequent refusal to keep doing what he loves, implied to be baseball.
Played somewhat straight with the gym teacher, but even he acknowledges Lewis' achievement in the end. Played straight when Goob loses the game by missing his catch and his teammates beat him up, calling him names.
Later averted by older Goob's schoolmates, who are nice to him and invite him to "hang out". Unfortunately, by that time, he has spent so much time pitying himself that he's become too bitter to notice when people are genuinely nice to him.
It's implied that Bowler Hat Guy will be Ret Gone from existence when he saves his younger self from dropping the baseball and thus turning evil. The way he leaves Wilbur without saying goodbye implies that he knows this and doesn't want to make a fuss about it.

At one point, the city skyline of is match-cut to a city skyline prior to the Bowler Hat Guy's attempt to present the Memory Scanner at the InventCo offices.
Discussed, where Carl, before sending Lewis back in time, asks him to invent him with a more muscular design. And it actually comes through. As mentioned above, the writers' time travel logic makes no sense when you think about it.
It'd work out a lot better if the Dinosaur didn't show up again when the family said goodbye to Lewis. The very first scene has Lewis as an infant being left at Mildred's orphanage by his mother.
Towards the end of the film, the sunny, idealistic Utopian society transforms suddenly into a bleak, polluted world controlled by evil hats. From optimistic future to zombie apocalypse in five minutes and then back again, and not all at once either -- in a sweeping movement. Lewis meets up with his future self toward the end of the movie. Named by the Adaptation: In the book, the protagonist was unnamed. Well, it's a long and pitiful story, about a young boy with a dream, a dream of winning a Little League championship If I hadn't fallen asleep, I would have caught the ball, and we would have won!

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Wilbur forgets to close the garage door, and allows Bowler Hat Guy to steal one of the time machines: Wilbur, make sure you shut that door tight, or else the alarm won't engage. I went to your house, snuck in the garage, and stole the time machine. All thanks to that pointy-haired little kid who forgot to lock the garage door.
Even Carl, the robot butler, makes reference to this incident earlier in the film: What do you mean don't go to the family? How can we not go to the family is this type of family crisis? By leaving the garage door unlocked, you let the time machine get stolen and now the entire time stream could be altered!
No Celebrities Were Harmed: When Doris pulls herself down over the eyes of one of the Robinson Industries lab assistants, his face resembles Stan Laurel's. No New Fashions in the Future: We have flying cars and robot buddies and bubblevators, but all the cool kids wear T-shirts, jeans and Converse All-Stars.
Well, a few of the characters do wear Jetsons-like jumpsuits.
