RObotzi is a Romanian animated web series created by the channel "CreativeMonkeysArmy", premiering January 20th, 2011. The cartoon follows the lives of two robots named MO and FOCA who were the first "small" robots created in Romania, and whose glory days ended once the "great" robots appeared. Now they are guarding a warehouse belonging to the National Robotics Institute.

This webseries provides examples of:

  • Alien Episode: In an episode MO and FOCA are kidnapped by some tiny robotic aliens who attempt to suck out their intelligence.
  • The Alcoholic: MO is obsessed with alcohol. In fact the reason behind his rusty design is because he drinks too much.
  • Enemies with Death: MO and FOCA were originally enemies with the Grim reaper. However they befriended him at the end of the episode.
  • Fun with Acronyms: FOCA's name is actually an Acronym for "Fabricat Original Cu Aluminiu" (Made Originally With Alluminium) which forms the word "Foca" which is Romanian for "the Seal" which is often lampshaded by MO.
