Metal Mickey - R2-D2-like robot (a la Star Wars) on the British children's series METAL MICKEY/LWT/1980-83.

Metal Mickey

Metal Mickey is a five-foot service robot built by British youngster Ken Wilberforce (Ashley Knight) to help around the house. The robot also interacted with:

  • Lucinda Bateson as Haley Wilberforce
  • Lola Young as Janey, the girl next-door
  • Gary Shail as Steve Wilberforce
  • Georgina Melville as Mother Wilberforce
  • Michael Stainton as Father Wilberforce
  • Irene Handl as Granny, whom Mickey calls an "Old Fruitbat"

Metal Mickey came to life when Janey, the girl from next door popped an Atomic Thunderbuster (a candy) in his metal mouth.

Metal Mickey first appeared on the British program THE SATURDAY BANANA/LWT/1979. The series was created by Mickey Dolenz, a member of the Monkees, an American rock band.


Theme Song Lyrics

Ready, Steady are you set?
For Metal Mickey,
He's the cutest robot yet, Metal Mickey.

He's a lot of fun
(Fun)
He weighs a half a ton,
(I weigh a half a ton)
He'll be your number one
(I'll be your number one)
But look out, look out!

Electronic Pile
(an electronic pile)
With a silicon smile
(with a silicon smile)
He's got a lot of style
(I've got a lot of style)
So look out, look out!

Ready, Steady, are you set?
For Metal Mickey
(Boo-boo bee doo)
He's the cutest robot yet, Metal Mickey.

He's a lot of fun
(I'm alot of fun)
He weighs a half a ton
(I weigh a half a ton)
He'll be your number one
(I'll be your number one)
So look out, look out!

(guitar music)

So look out, look out!

Ready, Steady are you set?
For Metal Mickey,
He's the cutest robot yet, Metal Mickey.

He's a lot of fun
(Fun)
He weighs a half a ton,
(I weigh a half a ton)
He'll be your number one
(I'll be your number one)
But look out, look out!

He's Metal Mickey!
