Kimagure Robot, at around 2 minutes per episode; is a fun little series that doesn't take much time at all to watch and enjoy.

Each episode displays one of the doctor's strange creations and its relations with the poor, unsuspecting people who have to deal with it. You won't find any deep plot or multi-layered realistic characters here, but that's what works for this and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Kimagure Robot could be best compared to a Saturday morning cartoon with its whimsical characters and setting and overall light-hearted, relaxed atmosphere. The character designs and art have a great bold and cartoonish style that is perfect for the series and also just very appealing to look at. The art direction seems to change slightly from episode to episode and it typically matches the theme or mood of the episode without the style changing too much. Each of the stories have a good bit of humour and I laughed quite a few times watching it. It's cute, it's fun and it's worth watching.

Realistically, I have nothing to complain about with this series other than I wish there was more of it. The only reason I didn't give it above an 8 is because it just doesn't accomplish much on any other level than enjoyment and didn't evoke any emotional response from me.

Overall, Kimagure Robot is just an enjoyable little series and a great way to spend 20 minutes.
