Is Burn-E 2008's third-most-adorable robot? Discuss.

The most adorable and second-most adorable — I’ll let you decide who’s in which place — have to be Wall-E and EVE, from Pixar’s super-awesome Wall-E. Just thinking of them makes me let out a little "Awww." And NASA’s late Mars Phoenix Lander is a strong third-place contender after them. So sad! But I think the bronze is gonna have to go to my new pal Burn-E, the star of a seven-and-a-half-minute short that Wall-E lead animator Angus MacLane directed for the new Wall-E DVD. You can check the little guy out below (h/t) if you can’t wait to buy the DVD next week. Burn-E, whose adventure takes place at the same time as Wall-E, is a repair robot on the Axiom spacecraft. All your favorite human and technological characters make cameos as he struggles to fix a broken gizmo of some kind. And there’s a very nice score by Wall-E orchestrator J.A.C. Redford. Pretty great stuff, no?

UPDATE: Broken YouTube link replaced with a new one below. If this one disappears, too…well, go out and buy the DVD next week!

    Burn E is ok.
    But I have to nominate M-O for the third most adorable robot of 2008. He’s the one who’s always following Wall E around, and yelling, “whoa, whoa, whoa” in an effort to clean up all the mess Wall E leaves behind. I’ve actually been doing a solid M-O impression since the movie came out.
    I LOVE this movie.

    This is so cute.
    But I have to say, I’ll buy the DVD just because of Presto. I hadn’t laughed so hard in like forever and it took so much by surprise too. I thought the guys in the tech room had launched the wrong movie.

    That was pretty cute.

    Charming, of course! Can’t wait for “Up”, although I’m not too excited about “Cars 2″. I WOULD be excited about a sequel to “The Incredibles”…

  • Martin

    I absolutely agree. M-O was awesome!
