Monster helps Robot achieve his life-long dream of playing in a Pole-O game, a combination of rugby and caber tossing. This could very well be the highlight of Robot’s life… assuming he survives.



  • Punch Morley makes his first official appearance in this episode; he made his cameo in Monster's Great Escape.
  • While Robot and Monster were visualizing Pole-O in the park, Monster's hat is seen floating.

  • We learn that the Blinking Light Factory has a rival known as the Beeping Tones Factory.
  • In one scene, Robot vomits into Perry's car. After Robot flees, Perry get into his car, finding himself sitting atop of the mess Robot left. After Perry bellows in digust, he turns to the camera and angrily states, "I hate this neighborhood!"
  • This is the second episode in which Robot does not invent anything.
  • This is the first episode to have a scene that involves vomiting.
  • It is revealed that Monster used to be a star Pole-O player during his and Robot's time in high school.
