Damaged is an animated short series on YouTube by comedian Liz Miele.
The series follows two defective robots who were adopted by humans. Emily is a yellow girl robot with a mysterious acronym on her arm. TJ, her brother, is a robot with a faucet on the side of his head, since he's a juicer robot. They try to navigate school, live their lives, and along the way Emily is revealed to be very important to someone.
The show was funded on Kickstarter on March 7th, 2013, and premiered on June 28th, 2013.

I'll be my own self, and my damaged ways.
I don't care if I'm broken.
I don't care if I'm rusted,
I won't go down busted.
Today I decided I'll be okay.
I'll be my own self.
Aand my daaamaaaged ways.
