When I first saw Wall-E, (above) I knew he was the spawn of Johnny 5:
When I saw the trailer for Wall-E before Indiana Jones and the Temple-of-Crystal-Headed-Aliens-That-Buried-Their-Stupid-Lame-Ass-Flying-Saucer (caution that was a spoiler) I knew Wall-e was going to be a smash. It’s Pixar, it’s Toy Story and Monsters Inc. It will be (is) a great movie, with tons of merchandising opportunities.
But Johnny 5, from the movie Short Circuit isn’t getting the credit he deserves. Wall-e is the spawn of Johnny 5. Memorable line from Short Circuit ” Number Five is Alive!”
