At the St. Louis Zoo there is an animatronic Darwin who talks about natural selection. I always liked the double-whammy of replacing a human with a robot who talks about evolution. How long until we're all replaced?


I'm suddenly craving a trip to Stew Leonards.

Ah yes, "The Disneyland of Grocery Stores".

I think a trip to the always-Christmas world of the Yankee Candle Factory in Deerfield, MA is in order as well. The animatronic Oompah band in the Bavarian Village is simply too much.


Great article! I have a Rock-afire Explosion record up on my blog! Enjoy!


My favorite animatronic band of all time has to be "Captured by Robots". Technically it's a hybrid, with one human and several robots. If you haven't seen him/them perform you are in for a treat...



Lately I stumbled upon this, unfortunately fictional, beauty: http://www.worth1000.com/emailthis.asp?entry=284723
On the other hand, anyone who has heard of The Amazing Screw-On Head might disagree about it's place in history...

Oooh, thanks for mentioning Screw-On Head. That is one dandy little bit of animated action nifty-ness. It certainly should have been a full series!
