For this list I counted cyborgs and androids as robots. I realize that I missed a lot of the older robots, but that’s because I never saw their films or television shows. I didn’t really follow a time frame just as long as they appeared in a televison show or a movie.

15. The Fembots Austin Powers
You gotta love Cindy Margolis and others dressed up as a bedroom barbie complete with “machine-gun jubblies”

14. Rosie The Jetsons
Maid outfit. Obeys every command. What’s not to like?

13. Gigalo Joe AI
David may be ”A.I.”’s protagonist, but it’s cynical Joe, with his contempt for the humans who’ve built him, used him, and discarded him, that makes the movie tolarable.

12. Dot Matrix Space Balls
I can’t really put my finger on why a wise cracking robot voiced by Joan Rivers would make any sense, but somehow this movie pulls it off.

11. Sid 6.7 Virtuocity
The only reason he’s on this list is because he’s the only robot I can think of that can regenerate his limbs.

10. Crow T. Robot & Tom Servo Mystery Science Theater 3000
These are the two robots that Joel created on the “Satellite of Love” to keep him company while he watches horrible movies. Fun fact: The show first aired on a local channel in the Twin Cities

9. Sonny I, Robot
For some reason Sonny scares me a little.

8. K.I.T.T. Knight Rider
It probably helped that this robot car starred alongside TV legend David Hasselhoff

7. Bender Futurama
Comprising of 40% Zinc and 40% Titanium he later attended Bending State college where he majored in Bending and minored in Robo-American studies

6. C3PO & R2D2 Star Wars
I still to this day have no idea how C2PO could understand R2D2’s beeps and whistles or why he had a British accent.

5. Number 5 Short Circuit
#5 Alive!! #5 Alive!!

4. Lt Commander Data Star Trek: The Next Generation
I think he was a twist on Spock’s character only this time with childlike curiosity and he’s an andriod.

3. The Terminators Terminator Trilogy
Good or evil these robots are surprisingly adaptable. They also look good in sunglasses and leather. Especially Kristanna Loken

2. Robo Cop RoboCop
The monotone law-enforcing machine who’s mind is a crimal database and body is bullet proof. Not to mention he’ll shoot through someone’s legs to hit your groin.

1. Optimus Prime Transformers
I may or may not have cried during the death of Optimus Prime.
