In a robot world, a young idealistic inventor travels to the big city to join his inspiration's company, only to find himself opposing its sinister new management.
In the UK, Aunt Fanny had to be renamed "Fan", as "fanny" is a common UK slang word for "vagina".
You can shine no matter what you're made of.
Just before Rodney takes the city ball express, you can see him standing on a giant cog turning downwards. In the wide shot, the cog above him clearly has a robot on it too, yet when Rodney hops off, the cog above him comes down, and there is no robot to be seen.
During the end credits, there are 2-D drawings of robots.
Many redubs in the UK version. Loretta is played by Cat Deeley. Mr Gasket, Rachet's father is voiced by Terry Wogan. Eamonn Holmes redubs the two roles of Stephen Tobolowsky (Bigmouth Executive & Forge). Vernon Kay redubs Brian Scott McFadden as the Trashcan Bot. Chris Moyles is credited as Stage Announcer. The name of the large bottomed character has been changed from Fanny to Fan, as the word "fanny" is UK slang for the female genitals.
