Short Circuit


Steve Guttenberg (as Newton Crosby), Fischer Stevens (as Ben Jabituya), Ally Sheedy (Stephanie Speck)

Newton Crosby is a shy, sheltered computer genius who has designed the world's most advanced robots. The military has armed them with lasers to create the perfect mobile weapons, but everything changes when a bolt of lightning zaps the robot and brings him to life. Escaping from its home at Nova Robotics, the "living" robot encounters Stephanie Speck. She and Number Five form a loving friendship. But they have to keep outsmarting Crosby. Nova's trigger-happy security chief is also determined to get the robot .

They built twenty J5, doubles, stunt robots, shoot em up robots and spares " and the real jonny five  is not worth 11 million , (only ) 1.2 million . The guy who built him, is named Eric Allard. He owns a company called all effects inc. they built all of the j5's for short circuit 1 and 2 , and they did other things like built the suits for the teenage mutant ninja turtles movies , and they also built the little pink enegizer bunny. Eric got his start by building a smalll robot named PAL for a japanese expo , it was that robot the producers from Short Circuit saw in the screening when they were looking for someone to build the robot. Jonny five was built in a little over three months, he required 9 roboteers to operate "I'm Not sure why , i guess 1 for gross motor movements , 1 for each arm  1 For the head , one for the eyes , and .... By the time the second movie was made , Eric and his crew "some 70 people " had created a telemetry control suit , which was kind of like a metal backpack with two arms on it , the main roboteer "they needed only three for the second movie" wore this telemetry suit , and sat on something somewhat like a modified "actually it was a modified " swivel base office chair , this allowed one robot to control both arms , and the waist ..... then 1 other person was assigned the job of facial expression , and another got the job of gross motor control "rolling around.
