Meet the Robinsons / Tear Jerker - TV Tropes
The scene near the end after Doris is defeated and Lewis asks Goob to join the Robinsons. The look on Goob's face as he walks away is so sad. Not to mention. Meet the Robinsons Bowler Hat Guy How many evil villians can top off a name like Goob? Blech! (Lewis is explaining his Memory Scanner to the judges). Meet the Robinsons is a computer-animated family film produced by Walt 1 Lewis; 2 Wilbur Robinson; 3 Dialogue; 4 About Meet the Robinsons; 5 See .. Lewis: She's using you, Goob, and when she gets what she wants, she'II get rid.
Since he doesn't know anything about the scanner, he is thrown out, and at Doris' suggestion, they start to track Lewis for help.
Checking at the orphanage, Goob runs into his past self, who had just returned after being beaten up by his baseball team. After being reminded that Lewis likes to hang out on the roof, future Goob decides to go up there, but not before telling his past self to nurture his hatred and resentment for Lewis. Upon discovering that Wilbur had followed them to the past, and was now gone, they return to the future and land invisible in the Robinsons' lawn.
When Doris leaves to get Lewis out of the Robinson house, she gives him control of a mini-Doris so that he can accompany her without leaving the time machine. After spying Lewis, Doris flies off on her own, while Goob ponders how to get him out of the house.
After finding a bar of frogs, he has an idea of taking control of Frankie and using him to intercept Lewis and bring him to Goob. This fails as Frankie is too small to grab Lewis. After dismissing Frankie, a garden structure gives him the idea to go back in time and steal a T-Rex named " Tiny ".
He then sends him controlled by Mini-Doris after Lewis. With the help of the Robinsons, Lewis, and Wilbur defeat Tiny and Mini-Doris is taken away by the frogs to her presumed destruction, while Doris chastises Goob for his plan. However, they seize their chance when Lewis is walking away from the Robinson family after being seemingly betrayed, Goob promising to use the time machine to take him back to see his mother if he will repair the memory scanner.
Wilbur's arrival makes Lewis angry enough to agree, and Goob flies them in the time machine to his old orphanage home. After Lewis fixes the memory scanner, Doris ties him up and takes him prisoner, and then Goob tells his story.
Carl and Wilbur save Lewis, but before they can reach the house, Doris impales Carl and steals back the memory scanner, and Goob pauses just long enough to taunt them before going back to the past.MTR BowlerHatandLouis
Goob successfully passes off the memory scanner as his own and then presents the idea of helping hats to Inventco. Sometime shortly afterward, the helping hats begin terrorizing the people, and a horrified Goob asks Doris about it.
But Doris, having no more use for Goob, sics several hats on him and presumably kills him. This future is edited, however, after Lewis uses the time machine to go back to before it was set in motion. At the point in time immediately after Goob signs the contract and makes the invention his own, Lewis appears and tells him that Doris is using him and will kill him after getting what she wants.
Goob sees Doris being destroyed after Lewis promises he will never invent her. Lewis then shows Goob the industrial, smog-filled future that Doris would have created, which fades after a few seconds thanks to Lewis's intervention in the past, restoring the original, peaceful future. As Wilbur is restored into existence, he attacks Goob on sight, until Lewis pulls him and tells his future son of his association with Goob. Then Goob leaves, wondering what to do next despite Lewis getting Wilbur to offer to have the Robinsons adopt him.
He leaves his binder behind with his checklist and one unchecked box that has a question mark next to it. Upon returning to the past, Lewis, instead of going straight to the Science Fair, heads to the ball field where young Goob is sleeping.
Lewis yells at him, waking him up and Goob catches the ball he missed before, winning the game and negating the events that led to his transformation into the Bowler Hat Guy. Goob is shown as a much happier person afterward, no longer having a reason to be so furious. He is seen carrying around his trophy and getting adopted by the Hendersons, a couple that had previously interviewed Lewis and having an amicable goodbye with Lewis when he leaves the orphanage.
He usually appeared alongside Lewis and Wilbur. Having a drink at Playtime Planet. I just wanted to ruin his future, not this. Where is your heart at? Even though you've him, her, me and an army searching. I've got a feeling, You will be reeling.
When you are bad and the circus comes to town Grandpa, I think I found your teeth. And you see me leaving dressed up as a magician or something like that. My teeth are back!
Matthew Josten: Michael "Goob" Yagoobian
Well, glad I could help with the teeth, but, wow, look at the time. Lewis, I told you to stay in the garage! I did, but I went up the tube, and I ran into your family and I— Wilbur: Who have you met, and what have you learned?
Bud, Fritz, and Joe are brothers. Fritz is married to Petunia, and is she? Tallulah and Lazslo are their children, Joe is married to Billie, Lefty is the butler, Spike and Dimitri are twins, and I don't know who they're related to. Bud is married to Lucille, and Cornelius is their son. Wilbur is the son of Franny and Cornelius. And no one realized that you were from the past? Hold your applause, thank you very much. I mean, this stuff is way too advanced for me. And what if I can't fix this, what are we gonna do?
Why do you keep saying that? And don't just say "keep moving forward". It's my dad's motto. Why would his motto be "keep moving forward"? It's what he does. What's that supposed to mean?
That is an excellent question. Robinson Industries, the world's leading scientific-research and-design factory. My dad runs the company. They mass produce his inventions. His motto, "keep moving forward". What's going on, why aren't you seizing the boy?!? I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through.
And so it begins. Surely that is not the best you can do. Your skills are strong, but not strong enough. Your words do not threaten me, brother. Now the real battle begins. Your meatballs are useless against me.
Then perhaps it's time for spicy Italian sausage. Is dinner like this every night? Yesterday we had meatloaf. You are now under my control. I am now under your control. Don't repeat everything I say.
I won't repeat everything you say. Uh, did you just say "excellent" because I said "excellent"? What if Louis Armstrong said, "I can't"? You think he'd have walked on the moon? Dear, Louis Armstrong was a singer.
Why are you doing this to me? I never did anything to you! Let's see if this rings a bell - Father of the future, inventor extraordinaire, "Keep moving forward"?

About Meet the Robinsons[ edit ] So we had some different challenges: The Incredibles was a definite inspiration for this. It was eye-popping to me, and certainly part of my education in 3D and how to do character animation with all of its subtleties. One really interesting technique that we used is occlusion. It creates shadows based on the proximity of one object to another. It's a way to avoid that glowy feel that computer animation has or the way mouths look like they're illuminated from inside.
Occlusion, because it's a closed space in there, will darken that mouth immediately. Then when we add our texture and lighting on top of that, you have a bit more real look to the images you're creating. It's that extra layer of believability that computer animation is so great at.
