WALL•E 5 Is Alive!

What a difference 22 years can make. For those of us old enough to remember Number 5, you’ll appreciate this post. I remember thinking that WALL•E reminded me of Short Circuit, but that was just me remembering in my head.

Then I pulled up an image of Number 5, and was pretty astonished. The head shape, tire tread shape, even the digits, all are spookily similar. It’s a little disappointing from a character design standpoint, but I still thought WALL•E (especially the first act) was a fantastic film.

    Being a child of the nineties, Short Circuit was a little before my time, but no doubt one of my favorite childhood films. I too have made many comparisons of these two robots and in the movie short circuit, there is also a small white robot that resembles eve. Was Wall-e inspired by Short Circuit or just a coinsidence?

    Number 5 alive! No disassemble! No make dead!

    Amazing movie.
