"Time Transmission" is the 8th episode of the series and the 4th(b) of Season 1 of Robotboy.


Robotboy receives a message from the future warning that he will over-run the world one day. The only way to protect the world is to hand him over to Dr. Kamikazi.




  • This is the first time Donnie is identified by name.
  • This is the first time Donnie sees Robotboy in normal mode. The other two are Up a Tree and Donnie Turnbull's Day Off.
  • Robotboy is able to project video transmissions with his eyes. This is the only episode in which he does so.
  • This is the first time Moshimo suggests having to destroy his son for a possible programming error that makes him deadly. The other time is in "The Tune Up". Tommy objects both times.
  • Tommy was supposed to be in school during the events of this episode. Or Kamikazi could have just said that to tease Tommy.
  • Kamikazi has a late-night infomercial, from which Tommy gets the number to Kaziland.
  • Goof: Robotboy is shown to have stepped in water from a dropped cup, producing a surge of electricity, but in the scene where the kids are questioning if Ro is evil, there is no cup to be seen.
  • Goof: Superactivated Robotboy sustained serious injuries from his battle with the Pirahna-Men, but when he goes back into Activated mode, he's completely fine.
  • Continuity error: Standing in water will make electricity surge from Robotboy, but that doesn't happen when he dives into the ocean at all.
