Storyline

The show focuses on the Polie Family, who live in a teapot-shaped house in a geometric world (Planet Polie) populated by robot-based characters. The stories revolve around a young robot named Olie learning life lessons and going on wacky adventures (either real or imaginative) while growing up. These often include his little sister Zowie, his inventor father, his hard-working mom, his fun-loving grandfather Pappy, and his dog Spot. Although most of the main cast is composed of circular bots, other characters are featured in other shapes, such as Olie's friend Billy Bevel and his family, who are square-shaped bots from Planet Cubey.

Rolie Polie Show isn't half bad
26 May 2005 | by yorskinmmaSee all my reviews

This show is actually quite enjoyable. When it first came out this type of animation wasn't big, so many people were impressed. My siblings enjoyed (and still enjoy) sitting in front of the television and sing along to his theme song. Granted it has a few flaws, like the younger sister, Zoe, who degrades all children in her age range because of her vocabulary and gets annoying after awhile. I'm 17 and the thing that amuses me most is the uncle who is supposed to be Elvis. It's amusing. They're all robots and the writers are able to build stories that relate to kids but are exaggerated to a point where it's actually amusing.
