Did You Own R.O.B. for the NES?


We had the old 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System growing up.  We didn't have R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy), however.

As you'll see from this NES ad, initial marketing efforts put a lot of focus on R.O.B., the robot you play with.

Despite loving my NES, I barely remember R.O.B.  It seems Nintendo only ever released two games that you could play with R.O.B.: Gyromite and Stack-Up.


Did anyone actually own R.O.B.?
