Added DiffLines:

* In the ''[[VideoGame/MysteryCaseFiles Ravenhearst]]'' game's numerous sequels, TV Head ''Mannequins'' are something of a signature gimmick of the Dalimar clan. Although none can walk on their own, some move about on track-wires and make gestures sufficient to qualify as "robots", not just odd TV-stands.

Added DiffLines:

* The Lord Of Games in VideoGame/BanjoKazooieNutsAndBolts is one


* The Walking TV from ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', [[CaptainObvious of course]].

Added DiffLines:

* A variant in ''VideoGame/{{Observer}}'' [[spoiler: when Dan Lazarski connects to the mind of the killer that stalked him through most of the game. One of the first things he sees is a group of people staring at him with boxy [=TVs=] for heads, all showing twitching human mouths in black-and-white.]]


* Ibor, Synonamess Botch's GiantMook, in ''Film/TwiceUponATime''.

to:

* Ibor, Synonamess Botch's GiantMook, in ''Film/TwiceUponATime''. Unlike most other examples of this trope, it possesses little to no sentience, strictly following Botch's orders without question. Most of the time, it uses its screen to display clips from old movies or other cartoons reflecting some other character's emotional state.


Added DiffLines:

* One of the late-game enemies in ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' is a robot with a CRT monitor for a head. However, the screen is used only to display its BlackBeadEyes (actually yellow eyes on black screen, but the principle is the same).

* The ''Music/AmericanIdiot'' musical often has images of people with televisions for heads painted in the background.

TheBlank. See also ScreensAreCameras, if they possess the television face, but no discernible sensory equipment with which to actually see.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'': In "Icy Nights II", Ice Bear's nemesis Barry the Bro-grammer has an army of MechaMooks with smart-phones for heads that emote by displaying various emoji. Near the end of the episode, Ice Bear and his old friend Yana encounter a much larger version with a tablet computer for a head.

Added DiffLines:

* Dr. Graaff from ''VideoGame/IronMarines'' has a TV face on his torso. It also shows [[CrushKillDestroy which]] [[NiceGuy personality]] and mode he's currently using -- an angry red face for Assault Mode, and a happy green face for Assist Mode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Animation/TheMindsEye Odyssey Into The Mind's Eye]]'' features characters with televisions for heads (although whether they are ''robots'' is up for debate). This is the ''least'' strangest thing that gets used as a head.
