Robots

Continuity mistake: Following Rodney's step from the escalator on the red pedestal he is being scooped into one half of a wire-frame globe/ball. Two halves now (the other one has Fender in it) form an intact globe. A safety bar with a 'wooden' middle bit (like those on rollercoasters) suddenly appears. After their journey, when the ball splits back into two halves, the safety bar, which previously had mysteriously appeared, now has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Rodney steps on the escalator (a giant metal wheel with escalator steps), in the station of Robot City, you can see another robot standing on the step above him. In the next shot Rodney gets from the step on top of some sort of red pedestal. The robot on the step above him has now disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Rodney is first magnetised, all kinds of metal are sticking to him so much so that he can hardly walk; Yet when all the Rusties are magnetised near the end in the chop shop, none of them are attracting metal.

Trivia: Not a mistake as such, but interesting to note. When Rodney and Fender are in Fender's room, lying in the hammocks, look behind Fender on the wall. Behind him is a "robot" version of the 'American Gothic' painting from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Trivia: A little nod to another Blue Sky Studios Production, "Ice Age". When Rodney is looking around Robot city, he comes across a red robot that plays hip-hop. As Rodney walks away nervously ("Uh, n-n-never mind"), pause the frame just before the shot changes and you'll see (on the left) a yellow, mechanical Sid. Sid is the sloth (and the main character) from "Ice Age". (00:15:25)

Trivia: When Rodney is trying to repair Bigweld on the crosstown express, Bigweld sings a slowed down version of "Daisy, Daisy" just like Hal 9000 when he is being shut down at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Fender: It's a mix between jazz and funk. I know! We can call it junk!

Fender : Welcome to Robot City. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. And if you can't make it there, welcome to the club.


Question: What is the name of the rap song played when Rodney asks the red robot about Big Weld industries?
