The Invisible Boy (1957) Timmie is a typical ten-year-old boy: he loves fun and mischief and hates to study. When his scientist father, in an attempt to improve Timmie's mind, plops him in front of the Super Computer, the boy learns more than how to beat his dad at chess. With designs on world domination, the computer has Timmie reactivate Robbie the Robot and directs the metal hulk to do his bidding. But while Robbie is an efficient minion, can he be made to harm the boy who gave him life?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Mary Merrinoe: Well, did you have a tiring day at the computer, dear?
  • Dr. Tom Merrinoe: He's already ten years old, and he can't even play a decent game of chess.
  • Dr. Tom Merrinoe: Now, how many 24th are there in one and a quarter? Timmie: Three? Seventeen? Forty-four? A hundred?
  • Timmie: Can you see around corners? Robby: No, no, merely through walls.
  • [first lines] Dr. Tom Merrinoe: General Swayne! Certainly didn't expect to see you in person. Gen. Swayne: Thought I'd be my own messenger boy this time.
Movie Trivia:
  • Robby the Robot's appearance in the film was partly because it was so expensive to build him for Forbidden Planet (1956) that MGM felt obliged to use him in another project.
  • MGM released this movie, which features a sequence set aboard an Earth-orbiting satellite, in October of 1957, the very same month in which the USSR inaugurated the Space Age by launching Sputnik.
