"Tether Tommy" is the 35th episode of the series and the 5th(a) of Season 2 of Robotboy.


In this episode when Robotboy feels angry at Donnie hurting Tommy at tether ball he flies to the ball of the tether ball and hits hardly to Donnie only that Dwight believes it was Tommy who hit the ball and takes him to the Tether Ball Tournament.



  • Dwight: Great news, Tommy. I quit my job to become your full time coach.
  • Deb: Tommy, telephone! It's someone named Bambi? Tommy: *quickly answers the phone as Dwight leaves* Hello? Bambi: Hi Tommy, it's Bambi. You were, like, sooo awesome today! When can we see you play again? *giggles* Tommy: Well I...I'll be in the Grand Nationals. Bambi: Wow! Dwight: *from behind Tommy's door* Yes!! Tommy: Dad!! Dwight: Sorry, sorry! *leaves* Tommy: *to Ro* You gotta help me win this. Robotboy: Okay, Tommy!
  • Tommy: *after Robotboy saves Tommy from the hot-dog cart robots and returns to Activated mode* Let's get out of here. Robotboy: Want take trophy? Tommy: *shrugs, not really caring* Nah, I cheated. I don't deserve to win. *Ro grabs his hand and they fly off*


  • Goof: When Tommy is reprimanding Ro for helping him win the tether ball tournament, he says, "Why did you do that? I told you I wanted this all to be over!" Unless this was done off-screen, Tommy didn't tell Robotboy this at all and had said to himself, "At least it'll all be over soon."
  • Brenda from "Christmas Evil" reappears as a cameo singing the same some.
  • Robotboy is able to fly fast enough to not be seen or noticed by people, leaving behind just a smoke-trail that no one seems to notice or wonder about where it came from.
  • This is the only episode where we see a snippet of Bambi's room. It's very pink and her bed has a lacy comforter. She has posters of some kind of singer and possibly a model on her wall and at least one window.
  • This is also the only episode we see Bambi actually cheerleading.
  • Goof: Bambi uses pink pom-poms for most of the episode, but when the announcer is calling for Tommy to claim his prize, they're yellow. This seems to have been intentionally done for the gag of Dwight putting one of the pom-poms on Donnie's head to emulate Tommy's blonde hair.
  • This is 1 of 5 times Robotboy Superactivates without the transformation sequence being shown. The other times are in "Metal Monster", "Christmas Evil", "Double Tommy", and "Tummy Trouble", that last one and this episode being the only two where we hear the sequence but don't see it.
