Western Animation: Robot Rumpus
Robot Rumpus (1956) is one of the earliest shorts in the Gumby series. Outside the Gumby fandom, the short is noted for appearing in a Season 9 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, paired with their presentation of The Screaming Skull.

The plot centers on Gumby and Pokey getting out of their chores by using robots to do all the work. Of course, the robots go rogue - tearing up the house and harrassing everyone. Gumby and his father, Gumbo, race to deactivate them.
