Meet the Robinsons - Wikipedia
In the credits, Lewis is listed as having two voice actors. Did I miss something? It's not like he had any singing scenes. What gives. Meet the Robinsons () cast and crew credits, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more. Michael "Goob" Yagoobian (voice). John H. H. Ford . Cornelius Robinson, Tom Selleck. Cousin Laszlo, Ethan Sandler. Cousin Tallulah, Stephen J. Anderson. Doris (DOR), Ethan Sandler. Frankie the Frog .
Lewis tries to demonstrate the scanner, but it has been sabotaged and falls apart, throwing the science fair into chaos. Lewis leaves while the Bowler Hat Guy, with the help of a robotic bowler hat named Doris, repairs and steals the scanner. Wilbur meets Lewis at the orphanage and asks him to repair the scanner. Lewis agrees to do so only if Wilbur can prove he is telling the truth, which Wilbur does by taking them to the year in a second time machine.
When they arrive, he and Wilbur get into an argument and crash. Wilbur asks Lewis to fix the time machine, but Lewis has another condition: Wilbur has to take him to visit his mother afterwards.
Reluctantly, Wilbur agrees and hides Lewis in the garage. Lewis does not stay there for long, however, and ends up meeting the rest of the Robinson family except for Cornelius, Wilbur's father, who is away on a business trip. The Robinsons offer to adopt Lewis, but change their mind when they learn that he is from the past.
Wilbur admits to lying to Lewis about taking him back to see his mom, causing Lewis to run off in disgust. Lewis then discovers that Cornelius Robinson is, in fact, a future version of himself, and Wilbur is his future son. Because he was kept awake by Lewis' work on the scanner, Goob fell asleep during an important Little League game and failed to make an important catch that cost the game. Goob became so bitter as a result that he was never adopted and remained in the orphanage long after it closed.
They have a lot of stuff we could add! His singing voice is done by Jamie Cullum. Lewis is an exchange student.
Where are you from Lewis? I'm from Canada Mrs. Don't you mean North Montana?Meet the Robinsons Movie Premiere
They stopped calling it Canada ages ago. That joke seemed to me to be in extremely poor taste, although I understand that nobody can predict the future.
For example my mother laughed at that joke and she is Canadian. Another point to be made is that other nation make fun of America in their media. An example of this is when i whent to England my family and I went to see the musical verison of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang". In a scene in which the two Vulgarian characters, who are supposed to be stealing the car, are debating over being vular they have a dialog somthing like: Vulaganian 1-"Why can we speak English and be vular?
It isn't nice but they do. I any person has a problem with theses sort of jokes in entertainment they can either 1 Not view that sort of entertainment 2 Go into the entertaiment bussiness and pervent thoses sort of joke from being put in scripts 3 Convince the government to create a law forbiding these types of jokes. In my own oppinion I believe the "North Montana" joke stems from the fact that Canada has taken better care of its resources and America is jealous.
Lots of media set in the future makes references to countries or states no longer existing.
Lewis Voice - Meet the Robinsons (Movie) | Behind The Voice Actors
It's part of a larger theme of things being so different in that time period. It's rarely taken offensively. Should a Canadian movie which is also released in the US suggest that Michigan, Alaska, and all of the remainder of the Northern United States be amalgamated into Canada, people would cry "National Chauvinism" or something along those lines.
The shoe can pinch when worn on the other foot. To whoever has posted the "Canada sucks" comment, I regret to inform you that anyone who is imbecilic enough to use the word "sucks" in any sort of forum has no credability.
I wish to offer my sincerest condolences on the loss of any scrap of credability you had before posting such a distastful excusse for an adjective. Well oh anonymous American editor, it's interesting how clear statements of fact can receive heated arguments about their truth or not. Should we try and create an experiment about it?
As for the movie, I didn't say it was a bad movie. I just said that I felt that line was in bad taste because Meet the Robinsons was targeted for a younger audience. Would you want your children watching Chris Rock's Bigger and Blacker when you knew that they may take that kind of humour as acceptable for everyone?
Children are a lot more impressionable than adults, and as such may think that an insult on a nation's sovereignity is completely acceptable, such as your enlightened statement above. Viridius' statement was a perfect response to my comment, non-inflammatory and factual, as well as persuasive. My response to it may not have been in the best of taste either, but there is a problem I have been noticing while in Indonesia. I watched a news broadcast about a Raptors vs. It is not very proffesional to get heated up about it, but one thing which we should be teaching our children is respect for our difference.
Thus my apology for my inflammatory comment and explanation for my position. Sorry Viridius, but I just feel in the context of the movie and considering who the target audience is, it was not in the best of taste, thus my comments. I hope no one takes this the wrong way, but it was a joke nothing more nothing less. I think most of you know that there are worst forms of comedy out there. This move happens to be about the future and movies about the future or in some rare cases the past are notorious for have some territory different.
It isn't common in day to day and I don't think it was meant to harm any one, but as I assume most of you know it is impossible to do anything with out making someone mad event if that particular joke had not been there someone else would have said something about the move that hurt them Oh and to whom ever wrote Canada sucks that was very rude of you.
Although it may have been rude but what was said after Canada sucks was important and corect you don't have to watch it if you don't like what is said Disney won't make you. I also would like to point out that the movie has a good message "Keep Moving Forward". Once again sorry, but I think there is a difference in what kind of humour should be used in adult films and what should be used in children's films.
Plot[ edit ] The section really needs to be broken into paragraphs. I would change it myself but the page isn't editable. If anyone could help, I'd appreciate that! Uncle Art is a ringmaster. The bowler hat's name is Doris. It's "spelled" Dor, pronounced Doris. I just have to figure out how to do it. For example, there are only good reviews in the critical response Someone needs to add negative ones to even it up.
Making this it's own section. Not a member, so can someone edit for me? First of all the whole context on the movie is that doris the robotic bowler hat is using Goob pardon spelling aka Bowler Hat Guy to get revenge on the future version of Lewis, who disabled her because she was ,well, evil. The paradox is that if Doris had succeeded in destroying Lewis' hopes and mass produced herself Lewis would never have grown up to be an inventor and would therefore have never invented Doris. If Lewis never invented Doris then she couldn't go back to the past and shatter Lewis' dreams and he would then grow up to be an inventor and invent Doris who would make it so he never invented her ect, ect, the paradox continues.
Now if this robotic hat is the brains of the opperation and I know for a fact Goob wasn't then why didn't she notice this painfully obvious paradox and devise a slightly less involved plan to destroy Lewis? Yes I do like to analyze childrens movies for fun in excruciating detail. Man, you need to be a script writer at Disney or a brain surgeon or something! And I'm not saying that script writing is like brain surgery.
If Doris is never invented, then Goob will never be smart enough to do anything but egg and TP the factory: If Wilbur doesn't take Louis into the future, Louis doesn't know not to invent Doris. If Louis invents Doris, everything goes bad again. Isn't time travel complicated? In the words of another Disney character, Ron Stoppable: It's a cornucopia of disturbing concepts.
