Holy creepy animatronics!

People, usually the Japanese HAND OUR ASSES TO US in the Cute depahtment.

But Today, I say—(In captain Kirk voice) You've gone... TOO FAR!

Why don't you just STICK TO BUNNY SWEATERS!?

BTW, the best part is the tail-pull.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Almost bleentastic! lol
It'd be funny if it could hork up a hairball. >^..^< Verra verra cute!

Yes, my name is really Cricket

well now that is one way to get rid of cleaning out the cat box.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 11:00 AM

Yeurrrrrrrrrgh! (I used to work for these people, I'm so glad I don't anymore)

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 11:04 AM

haha its like Salem the cat from the show "Sabrina the teenage witch".

That cat was so fake it was comedy gold. :P

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 11:07 AM

OK, that's slid just a little too far down the Uncanny Valley to be cute. Its movements are jerky and totally un-feline.

Weird cat--but the cute lil' handheld chickie shown at the end is adorable, I bet. ^_^

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 11:13 AM

eee -gad.
that even more creepy than my "purrrfect pet" orange tiger stripe cat sitting on my desk.
oh! and I have a REAL cat thank you very much, so there.

Wow, my kitties would love to play with this. Maybe my Binx would stop humping his blue bunny and use this instead. At least it wouldn't look so weird and it would talk back to him. Robo kitty love.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 11:34 AM

the kitty's kinda weird, but i'll take the chickadee ^^

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 11:37 AM

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack hams with tomatoes off the shoulder of Orion. I watched sea otters glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like... tears... in rain.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:01 PM

i'm lmao
right now..
have to send that to all my friends...

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:05 PM

I kinda like it.....

And I love love LOVE the chick at the end!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:15 PM

How come the cat is $83 but the chick is only $21? I bet it doesn't even move...

It's smaller & less complicated, Westley.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:33 PM

I want one of those Peeper-Thingies! The cat is unnecessary, since I have 3 lovelies, but the Peeper -- now there's a toy for my toy shelf! Where can I get one?

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:33 PM

Thanks, I'm going to have nightmares about this one. Hold me, I'm scared.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:35 PM

Cool! This was my first cute (or creepy) submission and it got accepted! I feel so proud.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:36 PM

I like how the cat meows angrily if you pull its tail. Watch out! Don't get it too angry or it will join the robot revolution... *nee, nee, nee*

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:36 PM

Aw man, I want one. It's cute-o-creepalicious. Considering my dogs already think the Furby is some kind of Magic Dog Prophet, they'd likely worship this as their new Magic Dog God.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 12:58 PM

hmm. seems like it would be more realistic if it attacked when its tail was pulled, instead of just yowling...for that matter, if my cat is any representation, it should probably attack if you pet it for more than 2 minutes straight!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:03 PM

creepy? yes.
do i want one? secretly, yes.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:03 PM

A-HA HAAAA! I love it! And I think I have one of those chicks! I'll have to find it and post a vid of it on YouTube.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:05 PM

"Neko-chan kawaii"? Ie! Neko-chan KOWAI!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:13 PM

I still think we got our asses handed to us because that cat looks so real!! It's still creepy though!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:13 PM

Okay, at the end, when it puts its head down, I thought it was getting ready to hairball.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:23 PM

Well... I have three cats, and this bot does NOT look like an actual living cat to me.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:23 PM

fish eye no miko - I totally agree with you! Kowai ne!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:24 PM

I love how it gets mad when she grabs his tail!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:34 PM

Maybe an ROUS for the Dread Pirate Robert???

I thought the kitty was very strange indeed but....I still wouldn't mind having one, but I'm not gonna pay that much for it!

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:38 PM

Yeah, I find this REALLY creepy and not at all cute.

And not just because I think it's completely reasonable to fear the inevitable overthrow of the human race by robots that we ourselves designed...

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:49 PM

Wow, that cat costs like $80.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 01:53 PM

Well, now that we've all repeatedly established that it's creepy despite Meg having already said so in the original post, I must say I wouldn't mind having the baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby chick shown at the very end.

Space Cowgirl
 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:05 PM

That kitty reminds me of this Japanese commercial: http://youtube.com/watch?v=dPSBWkIDJL0

Though I think the fat kitty is cuter.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:06 PM

I think it the neko-chan was kawaii, but I'd prefer real cat. =3 Well d'oh.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:22 PM

what kind of litter box does this thing need ?

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:30 PM

Mental picture of owner scooping dead AA batteries from litterbox...

Peg of Tilling
 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:43 PM

Okay, that is pretty damn cute. Wonder when the puppy is coming out.

i think there should be a new category - cute or creepy

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:53 PM

o m g. its. possesd.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 02:57 PM

Yeah, it's all fun and games until it starts shooting lasers out of it's eyes and clawing the furniture! :D

That is a scary cat, period.

The weird thing is that birdie is stragely alluring......

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 03:01 PM

I bet this thing would look cute when tied to a car bumper by a string and then towed at 45 MPH.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 03:03 PM

Wow, at first I was completely ready to second Lola's motion for a Cute or Creepy category, and then I realized what strange and unfortunate floodgates would open...I for one refuse to pave the way for daily bug/slimy thing/weird robot kitty posts...let's stick to plain "cute" plsthx (by the way, the robokitty is hilarious, I secretly want one)

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 03:09 PM

I wonder what my kitties would think of this....probably nothing, since it doesn't smell like a kitty (to them at least). Yup, kinda creepy.

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 03:17 PM

Where can I get one? I want! XP

 |  Sep 06, 2007 at 03:39 PM

Yikes!! Totally creepy!
