Pretty awesome show with slight flaws.

Honestly, Robotboy is my favorite show. I've loved it since I first found out about it in 2007, then I forgot about it until 2016, which was when I rediscovered it and fell back in love with it. It had helped get me through a particularly difficult time and it still makes me happy and laugh. My favorite part would be the cherishable bond between Robotboy and Tommy. It's so irresistibly adorable and amazing just how far Ro would go to keep Tommy safe, even from his abusive older brother and belittling father. The dynamics between Lola, Gus, and Tommy could be better; it seems like Lola is left out of too many things because she's a girl and sometimes the boys don't treat her well. When they do, though, their friendship is precious and it's fun seeing them get along and hanging out. I can agree that there are some jokes that are too gross or perverted for me and make me flip to a new tab or a TV input until those scenes are over. That is one thing to keep an eye out for. While the sexualization of the adult females can be something else to be weary about, most of it is mainly for eye-candy for older viewers as are the adult humor jokes. Robotboy is still a fun and entertaining show for kids ages 10 and up, maybe younger with some adult supervision. If parents are worried about their kids "copying" what Robotboy does, then teach them the difference between fiction and reality and not to copy what they see on TV and that it's just a show. Robotboy was made as a fighting-robot for a competition his creator partakes in, but since being sent to live with Tommy, Ro uses his powers for self-defense and to protect himself and his friends. His Superactivated mode might look threatening, but that's the point; it's used to scare off his competitions and also works well on intimidating his enemies. Rarely does he ever use his weapons on humans, unless he is brainwashed by villains, as he was in one episode. His most powerful weapons are used to destroy robots and to incapacitate escape vehicles used by the villains. Otherwise, he's a very sweet and gentle robot who holds much love for his friends and curiosity about the world he was built into. He wishes to use what he learns to become or be like a real boy. And yes, there is two uses of the word "jackass", but nothing too serious or to be concerned about. I say let your kids watch this because it is fairly entertaining and fun and the bond between Robotboy and Tommy certainly makes it worth it. Watch it with them if you're so worried and teach them what they should and shouldn't do. As for the violence, what do you expect from an action-based show about a fighting-robot? I think parents should be more concerned about how Tommy's older brother and father treats him than him having a robot with weapons for a friend. This show is just an insight into the life of a 10-year old boy interested in robotics who has a chance to have a robot as his best friend, brought on by the creator's son who wished he could have a robot to protect him from bullies. There are far worse shows your kids could be watching and emulating.

I can recommend it to watch

I don't understand the negative reviews. The show is very well desgined and looks amazing for a children cartoon. The quality is more then excellent. Most episodes are fun to watch and have their learning moments for children. The fights Robotboy encounters are fun to watch and are the highlights of each episode. Ofcourse you also have some gross moments, but every cartoon has those and even more. Robotboy has a few to none. Also credit for the music that is being used. The main characters (Robotboy, Tommy, Lola) are really loveable and are all do have their own personalities in which many children can relate to. Gus is just their for the comic-relief. For those who are complaining about Kamikazi (the main villian) and professor Moshimo for having those overdone Japanese accents, it's good to know that the voice-actors of both characters were from Japanese origin. It's very suitable for children, fun to watch and has many good moments to enjoy for them and adults.

Its really good

I see nothing wrong with robot boy. Me? I love robots so I can't help myself. I haven't seen none of what these comments say in the show. Gus on the other hand shows pretty much how kids can be when they dont really care for their child or dont show much attention to their child at a young age. Besides its a cartoon! Relax. I may not know alot about kids but for those that wanna laugh, this is the show for you. It also shows (for people that have a dream about robotics) that maybe, just maybe, there could one day be a bond of friendship between man and machine. Thats why we shouldnt make them for war.

It's OK

it could be a lot more enjoyable if they got rid of Gus, all he does is eat and fart and he is not needed for the plots, this show is out of my home country, Slovakia (fun fact), the only likeable characters are Constantine and Dr. Moshimo, everything else in this show was quite bland
