Robotomy is an American animated television series created by Michael Buckley and Joe Deasy, directed by Christy Karacas, voice directed by Michael Sinterniklaas, and produced by World Leaders Entertainment and Cartoon Network Studios. The series was developed after a long series of unaccepted ideas, and occasionally put in and out of production due to changing executives. It was officially announced on August 31, 2009, and premiered on October 25, 2010, on Cartoon Network. Robotomy was canceled on January 24, 2011. It is Cartoon Network's shortest-running original series, as well as with the least number of episodes. Robotomy was officially removed from Cartoon Network's website on February 11, 2011. On January 11, 2013, the series returned to television in reruns, albeit in a minor role. Episodes of the series could be seen from time to time on the revived Cartoon Planet block.
