  • Sergeant Tyrone and Officer Uniqua from the Robotics Department of the Police Department try to keep robots T-900 (Tasha) and Pablonator from flipping the switches on the good bots being made in the robot factory, from good to bad. Cute. :)moreless

    This is a cute episode, and it has my one of my favorite songs on it, "Steer Baby Steer". And all of the other songs are good too... my second favorite one is the "We Are Bad Bots". Maybe I'm just a country girl and I like the jug band genre.;) I love Pablo and Tasha as robots. This is a fantasic episode, and I wish it came on more often. I have it on DVD, and watch it at least twice a week. "Malfunction...malfunction" This is one of my favorite episodes, and I get so excited when it comes on television. Love it!!!moreless
  • Two bad "bots" try to sabotage the robots still on the assembly line at the factory...while the erstwhile "law" attempts to stop them before they achieve their evil goals. :)

    This one wasn't one of MY favorites, tho I did enjoy it thoroughly; however it IS in my daughter's top FIVE - and she wants to be a "Bad Bot", of course! Tasha is HER hero. ;) Mine is Tyrone, personally. LOL!!



    The music, as always, was fantastic - and the animation was fun, too. I liked the Metal effect on the bots...and as the 40-something I am, appreicated the Terminator references in the names of the bad bots: "Pablonator" and the "T-900". When my daughter (currently 6yo) is old enough, I look forward to sharing the Terminator movies with her, and enjoying the look of amusement when she makes that connection!moreless
  • This was one of our favorites in a long time!

    My boys (6-year-old twins) and I love the Backyardigans and always look forward to new episodes.



    Of this recent new batch, this one was my favorite -although the boys picked "Movers of Arabia" as their favorite.



    There were lots of funny and enjoyable moments in Cops and Robots. The whole schtick of Pablo and Tasha communicating as robots was great. "Activate laughter." etc... Also the bumbling Keystone Cops routine from Tyrone and Uniqua had me laughing. "You cuffed me!" and "No, don't do it!".



    The songs in this episode were great in my opinion. I've had "Badbots" stuck in my head for days - and not in a bad way... :) I always the enoy the episodes with a "swing" kind of classic feel to the music. I also think it is just terrific that this show has such a wonderful soundtrack in general - with real musicians playing the music!moreless
