Just Me?

I really want to see the new Pixar movie Wall-E. I truly do. I have heard nothing but amazing reviews and am hoping to actually bring my godson while we are on vacation in Florida next week. Still...I feel the need to point out the large elephant in the movie. Does anybody else see that this little guy...
looks a hell of a lot like THIS little guy!Or maybe I am the only dork around who actually remembers the movie Short Circuit...but how could anybody forget the 80's classic with "Number Five... IS ALIVE!!" ?? Seriously as soon as I saw a preview for Wall-E I was thinking, "weird...Pixar is remaking Short Circuit? No...wait...this doesn't seem to be about Johnny Five at all! Man, people are going to go CRAZY with all the robot stealing!" And yet...I have heard nothing. NOTHING! Nobody remembers poor Johnny...just look into his sweet face...

but then again...this one is pretty stinking cute too.

Yep...going to have to so see this little guy on vacation...even if he did steal his look from my favorite 80's robot.


  1. Chris and I saw it and it was GREAT!!! But alas there was no shout out to Johnny Five...

  2. I think I may be showing my age a little here but I don't remember Short Circuit. I do however want to see Wallee!

  3. Hysterical, I have seen the movie Short circuit on tv.....and I never realized it was an 80's classic. Hope you and the godson enjoy it Carter can't wait to see it he goes crazy every time he sees the commercial

  4. I totally saw it too - but it was one of those deep within my head / never came outof my mouth thoughts. I think it looks super! It's amazing how they can give personality to a computer animated robot. I just want to hug him.

  5. oooo....

    i have forgotten short circuit!

    let me know how you like the movie & whether it is kid appropriate!

    *i took ash to see kungfu panda and my mistake because it is abit more kungfu than ash should have seen.

  6. Thats it. We were twins separated at birth. I have been telling that to everyone I know -- there are so many similarities that it's not even funny. I love Short Circuit. I saw it on sale a while back at Target and bought it for hubby because he loves it too.

    Somehow, though, I doubt that Wall-E will be calling people "crap head". Sad too, because that's my favorite line.

  7. Hi Sarah - Thanks for checking out my blog! I can't wait to see Wall-E either! I had forgotten about Short Circuit...I think I remember crying, though. I'm sure Wall-E will be even better! :)

  8. Number Five Is Alive!

    Oh memories!

  9. Of course I remember Short Circuit and when I saw the previews for Wallee, I thought Short Circuit was coming back. I loved that movie! Number 5 is Alive!! Never forget it. They stole their idea clearly.

  10. Number 5 is alive!! That's exactly what I said when I saw the preview! I love that movie. :)

    Thank you for stopping by my blog! Nice to "meet you" !!

    Good luck on your upcoming IVF cycle! I'll keep checking back.

  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog!looks like we are both embarking on our 1st IVF together.

    And I am a teen from the 80's so I do remember "Short Circuit"...lol
