From the animated film Robots (2005). Poor but honest and good-hearted robot father (voiced by Stanley Tucci) of protagonist Rodney Copperbottom. He wanted to be a musician, but his father had him refitted as a dishwasher. At the end of the movie, his son Rodney (voiced by Ewan McGregor) encourages him to return to his first love, and presents him with a bizarre three-belled brass instrument, which is a particularly bizarre instrument for a robot as they don't have lungs. He leads the local marching band in James Brown's "Get Up Offa That Thing."
