EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Will discovers a rusty, abandoned alien robot and insists on trying to put it together again in spite of warnings from our robot that it is dangerous. He makes it work and everyone is delighted by its superior abilities. Our own robot, now considered obsolete, is completely ignored and finally it wanders away. The alien robot is secretly planning to get them all into its power and then turn them over to a “MONSTER” in outer space whom it serves. Will, who doesn’t trust it, manages to get away when the alien robot disarms the others and forces them into the spaceship.
