Worst Robot Penis Joke In History

Supposedly when Wall-E was already in production, the Pixar team found out that Blue Sky Studios was putting out an animated robot movie called Robots. Andrew Stanton was worried — until he saw Robots, which is nothing like Wall-E and also pretty horrendous. In this scene from the movie's opening credits, Stanley Tucci and Dianne West are a robo-couple who make a baby — from a kit. I love how Tucci's such a stereotypical guybot (not wanting to read the instructions) even though he and West need a lug wrench to reproduce. And the hilarious — hilarious! — cap-off to the scene is that they forget one crucial part of their new robo-boy. Imagine if this movie had succeeded in derailing Wall-E?
