ITV Fighting Robot Show Imitates The Simpsons

by | 29th, March 2010

A NEW ITV game show in the pipeline will feature contestants doing battle with big fighting robots.

The Daily Miror says ITV America president Paul Buccieri “absolutely fell in love with the show”. Says he:

“We are talking giant, massive robots that you control. It’s every kid’s dream.”

And also the 2D reality of Dan Greaney and Allen Glazier who wrote an episode of The Simpsons back in 2004. In I, (Annoyed Grunt)-Bot.

In the episode:

* Homer builds a battle robot to win Bart’s respect, and places it in a tournament against other robots. What Bart does not know, though, is that the robot is actually Homer in costume.

Still. Live the dream…
