11 Helpful Movie Robots That Will Ruin Your Life | Dummy
Dummy

Film: Iron Man (2008)

Perhaps everyone’s favourite cinematic armature robot – well, can you think of any others? – Dummy has one purpose on this earth: to put out fires. And it’s not that he’s bad at that, it’s just that he’s so eager to do so he’s often a little... premature. “If you douse me again and I'm not on fire, I'm donating you to a city college,” grimaces Tony Stark. His master, the one and only Genius Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist himself, doesn’t hate Dummy as such, but there’s a definite vibe that if there were anyone else available, that would be preferable: “Day 11, Test 37, Configuration 2.0. For lack of a better option, Dummy is still on fire safety.” Poor Dummy – and from the looks of Iron Man 3, Mr. Stark will need a new fire safety officer.

5 Japanese 'Doraemon' belongs to this group!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doraemon It's a robot cat from the future! Very helpful, but often with highly devastating result. It does enjoy decades-long celluloid releases, not only on printed media. More
