This is the sort of thing my memory sucks at. I'm a global and visual thinker, I could remember the gist of the plot and I had a very clear picture in my head of what the little robot looked like, but could I think of the film's title?
A quick search on "cute robot movies" led me straight to "Short Circuit" and the picture I wanted to turn into an icon for language learning.
It is so nice living in the future. :)
