Storyline

Created by the government to fight of world threatening peril Big Guy was the world's first artificially intelligent robot... or so the government wanted us to believe. But Big Guy is really just a super-suit with a man inside posing as Big Guy's mechanic. The world was not to know Big Guy wasn't A.I. because they couldn't tell society the technology wasn't ready yet. Years later Big Guy finds himself being replaced by an enthusiastic young robot named Rusty who actually has A.I. as well as the mind and personality of a ten-year old. But when saving the world proves too hard for Rusty Big Guy is called out of retirement. But now he must show the young robot the ropes. Written by Kai-18

A Cute Show
5 August 2004 | by Ginger87See all my reviews

I watched this on Fox Kids and grew attached to it. It was funny, patriotic, and Rusty was so cute. The plot of this show was really clever and the characters were all interesting. Especially Jenny the monkey.(LOL) She was so funny.

My favorite episodes were: "Rumble in the Jungle" and "Nephew of Neugog", tho I found all the episodes to be really well written and very entertaining. My favorite character was Rusty, who had the same voice(Pamela Segall)as Bobby Hill on "King of the Hill" and Spinelli on Disney's "Recess". I am a fan of both of those shows.

I suggest this show to everyone and give it 9/10 stars.
