“It’s basically ‘My Dinner with Andre’ with robots. I don’t understand what we’re doing here.”

#AutoMAYton kicks off with Heartbeeps, from 1981! In this episode: A terrifying Andy Kaufman. A robot telling Catskills jokes. A severe lack of cool robot $hit. A gross misunderstanding of the appeal of C-3PO and R2-D2. Andrew wants baby robots, and almost breaks Tripp’s brain about robot lifecycles. A deep discussion of Muppet Babies vis a vis regular-size Muppets and their aging process.

And like, so much more.
