Robotomy was a Cartoon Network American animated television series created by Michael Buckley & Joe Deasy, directed by Christy Karacas (Superjail!), voice directed by Michael Sinterniklaas, and produced by World Leaders Entertainment. The series was developed after a long series of unaccepted ideas, and occasionally put in and out of production due to changing executives. It was officially announced on August 13th, 2010 and premiered on October 25th, 2010. Robotomy was canceled on January 24, 2011 due to production costs and low foreign appeal. It is Cartoon Network's shortest running original series, as well as with the least number of episodes. Robotomy was officially removed from Cartoon Network's website on February 11, 2011. As of April 29, 2011, the show, just like The Moxy Show, has been completely forgotten with no reruns scheduled to air due to its short lifespan. However, unlike The Moxy Show, all of Robotomy's episodes can still be viewed on Netflix, while The Moxy Show can only be seen in commercial form or clips that are rarely findable.
Cartoon Network didn't acknowledge Robotomy until 2018, where Blastus (one of the series' two main protagonists) had a cameo in the OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes episode, Crossover Nexus.
Thrasher and Blastus are two outsider robots that live on the planet of Insanus (originally called Killglobe). Insanus is a planet inhabited by murderous robots who seek to kill one another for no apparent reason. Slightly less horrific than their peers, the duo seek to make it through high school, and navigate their lives with varying degrees of success. While Thrasher wishes to gain the affections of an attractive female robot named Maimy, Blastus just wants to be recognized as popular.
