What is this ROBIN12...thing?
Set on the Swedish countryside, ROBIN12 is the story of a boy once simply named Robin, who died at a very young age in a tragic accident only to be Frankensteined back together years later by a family unable to deal with the loss. Patched up from an assortment of body parts taken from the local cemetary and cobbled together from mysterious war machinery marked '12', Robin, now ROBIN12, isn’t really what he used to be.
The main storyline mostly revolves around ROBIN12 & his family dealing with the battle between 'meat and metal,’ resembling the 'heart vs. brain' struggle we all know from our daily life, but turned up to 11. It does not end there, however, as the machinery that has been implanted in Robin proves to belong to a villainous force, the mysterious ‘12,’ who definitely wants his powerful gear back.
The language will be in English, but with some occasional heavy 'Swenglish' accents.
I want this show to be a fun mix of the late-80's and early-90's morning cartoons that basically brought me into animation in the first place, combined with the modern adult animation shows of present day—a kids show for adults, if you will.
And what about this Sweeeedish family?
Not much was left of the young Robin after the accident, however, his brain was luckily left fully intact. With the help of some DIY-dad-gone-mad antics involving stolen body parts, some random kitchen utensils, and bizarre scrap machinery marked with the number ‘12,’ at least some form of Robin is back. I guess a ROBIN12 is better than no Robin at all, right?
Mats is your typical DIY-dad. Like, why pay for things when you can do it yourself? The tragedy of losing one of his sons, Robin, took a toll on him, and after that he went a little loony. Unable to deal with the loss, Mats turned to pseudoscience and various hocus pocus methods in order to try & achieve the impossible: get Robin back!
ROBIN12’s twin brother & Mats’ teenage son, William, is an 80’s metal maniac that, despite being loud and a bit difficult at times, loves his dad more than anything. William does not really believe in his dad’s crazy mission, but he does anything that helps to bring his dad out of the misery.
Besides... what if?
