The toy robots are very small and teal in color. They also have a wind-up key on their backs.
Role in series
The toy robots are first seen as a merchandise item at the Toy Barrel. Early in the episode, Patrick winds one up and it walks off.
Later, when SpongeBob and Patrick are running from a "monster," it turns out to be the same toy robot that Patrick winded up earlier. SpongeBob and Patrick shoot bubbles at it, but they fail to stop the robot. The toy robot soon stops walking toward them, much to their relief.
However, Patrick ends up winding the toy robot again and frightened SpongeBob and Patricks run out of the Toy Barrel.
The toy robots are later featured as enemies in Toy Barrel Peril.
