For a while back in the olden days, I was working with my pals Chad Strawderman and Jeff Barfoot on an idea for a tv show called Robot Family.
The earliest vision for the show involved a family of robots who spouted deep, passionate, emotional dialog in ultra-mechanical, monotone voices. After laughing for about five minutes, we realized we would need to tone down the robotic qualities of the characters. (the same way you wouldn't have a cat character meowing every line unless you want your audience to hate your guts)
We did a lot of sketches and development, but it never quite came to fruition as a show. (though the project obviously had huge influence on my comic strip We The Robots)
Below is the only piece I contributed to the effort that came close to feeling finished. (Chad Strawderman's voice for the salesman character is really one of the only redeeming qualities.)
