Agreed. I like robots, but this one looks like it's about to do some damage to the cat and kitty does not look too happy about it.

Wow! I really wish that one woulda made it... so cool. I haven't jumped on any shirts recently but I'm still in for two of these because I cant resist cats and robots enjoying friendship together.

It's like Wes Anderson made a sci-fi movie. :D

Hey everyone! Thanks a ton for printing this one, woot. I can't wait to wear it, since I like robots and cats. Well, I don't know if I really like cats that much anymore so much as I'm just surrounded by them (we have four). Anyways, this design started off as a drawing I made with my 1 yr old son, but then I liked the idea so much I made a small post card sized painting of it. I know it's not terribly sophisticated stylistically, but the farther I got from the folk art/ simple style, the less the design worked.

Also: I know this seems a little late to the cat shirt game, but I actually made and subbed this design almost 6 months ago- it just took a while to make its way through the pipeline.

Finally: Thanks for the great comments, everyone. I've got a couple of other robot designs in the pipeline, so plz follow my facebook page for updates...

The plot was stolen from Clifford D. Simak's "City" (1950). Only in "City", it was dogs that the robots served once humans abandoned Earth.

Okay, just a bit of curiosity here... What's up with shirt.woot and people loving cats? Is shirt.woot anti-dog? What about those that are allergic to cats and hate them with a vengence? I'm thinking maybe shirt.woot's advertising team may be targeting cat lovers and ruling out the dog lovers because there are cat shirts on all the time.
;)

Sincerely,
allergic to kitties and glad of it.

I don't know of anyone around here that dislikes dogs. Personally, I'd love to see a cute dog design. Maybe cats are easier to work into some themes than others. I honestly don't know.

Perhaps real artists can chime in. ;)

ps. cute design today.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Oh good, I was starting to think I was alone about dogs. Oh, so many cat lovers out there. (Although I do like the Zombie Kittens, that's more the exception for me.)


ETA: Don't know how I deleted this part before posting... I do endorse the more Robots side of today's woot (dut I am not looking at that side sale for the sake of my back account).

Sign me up for the dog lover category too. I've had cats and am currently herding an inherited cat but I much prefer my doggies.

I appreciate the Rush reference in the writeup...Caress of Steel. "Bastille Day" (opening track) flat-out rocks!

Maybe Robbie Lee is a relative of Geddy Lee? Perhaps the shirt is intended to pay homage to "The Body Electric" from Rush's Grace Under Pressure CD?

I love this design, the robot holding the cat in "show cat" pose, but I have enough silver/gray shirts already....
Wish I could trade in one of my others...

Haha, this thread has more comments than shirts sold. I did think the writeup was funny. It reminded me of Wall-E.

Most international shirt orders will take 3-4 weeks to arrive but some can take as long as 5-6 weeks to arrive. Additionally, these orders have no tracking data. There is some more information regarding international shirt orders here: http://shirt.woot.com/WhatIsWoot.aspx#q11a.
