Popular Culture has given us a wide array of memorable characters that, over time have become distinctly iconic. This project highlights specifically those non human, non animal characters from TV, Video Games, Cinema, and Comics that give us every reason to feel nostalgic. Inspired by Robert Ball’s Goodies & Baddies Prints, I wanted to highlight robots whom I believed to be transcendental across the pop culture landscape including classic robots, modern robots and even some non-robots robots.


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. Where’s Robot, from Lost In Space?

  2. Funny I just watched the movie Sleeper the other night. I had not seen it in years. Not to be picky but he wasn’t a robot (Miles), he was just dressed like one to hide from the police. Not sure why he is in the list but oh well.

    I agree Robot from Lost in Space should be here.

    I never considered HAL a robot.

  3. I’d also rather like to the the Original Marvin as well. Didn’t like the ping-pong ball one much.

  4. Where is Johnny 5 from Short Circuit?

  5. Cybermen aren’t robots, they’re cyborgs!

  6. Isn’t #24 “Robbie the Robot” the one from Lost in Space?

  7. Oop. After a quick search, I see it’s not. A few similarities though…

    Scroll about a fourth of the way down to see them side-by side…
