By the end of , Walt Disney Feature Animation was undeniably playing time that the film saw release as Meet the Robinsons about a year later, . Up, UP! all the time, ratcheting the energy higher with every new scene. Meet the Robinsons is a American computer-animated science fiction comedy film . The final credits of the 3D version were left two-dimensional, except for the names of those who converted the film to 3D. sound, plus music videos, the "Family Function " game, deleted scenes, and other bonus features. TITLE: Meet the Robinsons show, video game, etc. has any special scenes during or after the credits (aka Stinger, Egg, Credit Cookie, etc.)?.
Wilbur Wesley Singerman shows up to warn Lewis about the Bowler Hat Guy, and follows Lewis to the rooftop of his home, and tells him that he is a time cop from the future. So to convince Lewis that he is from the future, he throws him off the cliff, where Lewis conveniently lands on the invisible time machine.

What if he literally missed, and fell to his death? So Wilbur wants him to fix his memory scanner so he could help the future, but Lewis refuses, because he got it rough but if he listened to others, he would not have gotten it so rough and wants Wilbur to take him to his birth mother to stop her from giving him up. So they fight over the wheel, and crash the time machine, which is a problem since there is only two of them, and one of them is crashed, and the other one is owned by Bowler Hat Guy.
We get some useless banter about them not trusting one another, but Lewis agrees to fix the machine, if Wilbur takes him to his mother. Because that fails, him and his mechanical hat decides that they need to kidnap Lewis.Lewis Meets Cornelius (Meet the Robinsons)
Apparently Wilbur was supposed to find the stolen time machine, but manages to not find it, and ruin the last one. They try to throw us some humor here, but it really misses the mark, and it does make the tone of the film shift, and not in a good way. You do not get proper introductions to all of these characters that were are supposed to care for, and we are introduced to them in about 35 minutes into the film.
We still see some aspects of the bad Post Renaissance cliches as in the humor in this film. Bowler Hat Guy went back 30 years ago to speak to Gober, which is him 30 years prior, and tells him that he needs to hold onto to his anger from the humiliation of losing the baseball match, and Lewis ruining his life. Lewis fails to fix the machine, and soon enough, the family and Lewis are at dinner.
He is all sad, and Wilbur is glaring at him, but Franny asks Lewis where he is from, and he lies horribly. We get these painfully weird and unfunny ass comedic scenes that add absolutely nothing, and one example is the meat tossing scene at the dinner. There are a lot of moments in the film like this, and the heart in the first act is completely gone.
There needs to be a bit more focus and tone. So after Lewis fails to repair something, they all congratulate him on his failure, and throws a drink on themselves as a celebration. Lewis says he would want a family like them, and Wilbur tells Franny that he is an orphan. They also want him to take his hat off, but Wilbur prohibits it, since then they will realize that Lewis is Cornelius from 30 years ago.
Bowler Hat Guy goes in a time machine to get a dinosaur to attack the house, and we get this supposedly funny dino fight with him and the entire family. The Robinsons and Lewis have this UBER special bond after spending an hour at the max with one another, and they ask Lewis to become a Robinson, but Wilbur tips his hat off, which shocks the entire family and they recognize him.
Franny tells Lewis that he has to go back, and Wilbur ruined a lot. Bowler Hat pops off as Lewis runs off, and he goes with him in anger. He goes on and on about his delusional sob story about no one wanting to adopt him and everyone hating him in reality, it was because he was a demon in his interviews, and ignored everyoneand that he joined a robotic hat Cornelius created to take him down.
Lewis returns to the Robinson house, where Wilbur tells him that he needs to fix the time machine, and that he is his father, so he can do it, and that he himself Wilbur screwed up, and yada, yada, yada. The typical motivational speech. Everything goes awry when Bowler Hat takes the machine to the corporate managers, and the mechanical hat changes the future, and completely destroys the town after he gets rid of Bowler Hat, so Lewis fixes the time machine, and goes back to when bowler is about to sign the contract, and tells him that the hat is using him, and will dispose of him after it is done with him.
Lewis than says that he will never invent the hat, and it disappears. This does not really make sense, because you cannot say something will not exist and it disappears. Bowler is taken back to the house with the time machine, and he is sad about the hat using him, and not being his friend. I really hate how they ended things with him.
He just runs off. How do you close an arc with a villain like that? So Cornelius returns from his business trip, and sees the younger version of himself, as both of them are stunned. I have a few things to address.
Walt Disney Animation Studios Review: Meet the Robinsons
How in the hell did the family not recognize him? The way Wilbur speaks to his father is very odd. Even if you come across a younger version of your parent, would you REALLY treat him the way that he treats his young father? So old Lewis shows young Lewis their first invention the one at the science fairand young Lewis asks older Lewis if they ever meet their mother………no.
But Lewis has to keep moving forward, and yada yada yada. Wilbur takes Lewis back after he says goodbye to his family.

But old Lewis says he never gets to see his mother. She leaves, and HE is the one that knocks the door before he leaves. So he is returned toand runs to the baseball game to tell Goob to wake up and to catch the ball, which he does, and his team likes him. He rushes to the science fair, and his experiments works. Apparently one of the judges ends up as his adoptive parents, and he meets the younger Franny the girl with the frogs, and says that frogs can sing.
They adopt him, he moves into the Robinson house, and the ending song is pretty nice. Lewis agrees to do so only if Wilbur can prove he is telling the truth, which Wilbur does by taking them to the year in a second time machine.
When they arrive, he and Wilbur get into an argument and crash. Wilbur asks Lewis to fix the time machine, but Lewis has another condition: Wilbur has to take him to visit his mother afterwards. Reluctantly, Wilbur agrees and hides Lewis in the garage. Lewis does not stay there for long, however, and ends up meeting the rest of the Robinson family except for Cornelius, Wilbur's father, who is away on a business trip.
The Robinsons offer to adopt Lewis, but change their mind when they learn that he is from the past.
Wilbur admits to lying to Lewis about taking him back to see his mom, causing Lewis to run off in disgust. Lewis then discovers that Cornelius Robinson is, in fact, a future version of himself, and Wilbur is his future son.
Because he was kept awake by Lewis' work on the scanner, Goob fell asleep during an important Little League game and failed to make an important catch that cost the game. Goob became so bitter as a result that he was never adopted and remained in the orphanage long after it closed. Doris is "DOR", one of Lewis' failed and abandoned inventions. They both blamed Lewis for their misfortunes and decided to ruin his career by stealing the memory scanner and claiming credit for it.
Leaving Lewis behind, they take off with the scanner, drastically altering the future to a world where Doris' clones have enslaved humanity.
