    Skeets

    Was anyone else disappointed about the fact that Skeets was just some kind of headset instead of a cute flying robot? I really really loved the episode but I really wanted to see Skeets as a flying robot

    It was fine. All the essential cybernetics were there, great voice and quirky character. It was just the CGI costs for a floating robot.

    Budget. That would have cost too much.

    Skeets was more like an audio tour museum ear piece in this one.The lil' robot was probably too much $$$.

    I was hoping to see the actual Skeets, but I didn't mind what they did with it.

    it would be lame to have a robot like that and btw it wouldn't work due to the cost.

    And I don't think that was Billy West who voiced him either. We didn't see his name in the ending credits.

    You guys all know the cost? They could've had a gold paper mache egg on a string and made it work if they were creative enough.

    How much does (constructing) a model robot (with no moving parts or blinking lights) and some fishing line cost?

    How and why would it be lame? Skeets is supposed to be a floating robot. But yeah, they probably didn't show him as a robot because of the cost.

    I was annoyed at first, but to be honest, there was so much packed into 40 min, I think a flying robot would have made it even more crowded.
