Johnny 5 Returns
I haven't thought much about Johnny 5 lately. I was 12 years old when I first saw "Short Circuit" and I loved it. The Stonecutters were right to make Steve Guttenberg a star.
The best part of "Short Circuit" was Johnny 5. Johnny 5 was number 5 of a group of experimental robots in a lab who was electrocuted, suddenly became intelligent, and escaped.
There was a sequel, which wasn't as good even though it was shot in Toronto, but it's been about 20 years since I spent any time with Johnny 5. Thanks to Pixar, that's all changing this summer.
Johnny 5 is everywhere, only now they're calling him WALL-E. Trust me, "WALL-E" is simply a cleverly marketed "Short Circuit 3". Here's Johnny 5...
And here's WALL-E...
Johnny 5 is alive!
