Buy it... if you explicitly enjoy the explosively haphazard movement and zany styles of Danny Elfman's most quirky comedy and kiddie music from years past.

Avoid it... if you expect an overall package that plays like much more than a collection of Elfman's readily predictable techniques.

Meet the Robinsons: (Danny Elfman) In the messy relationship between Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar over the past ten years, A Day with Wilbur Robinson came at perhaps the most inopportune time. Already in production when the official merger of the two animation powerhouses occurred, the Stephen J. Anderson film was deemed to have major problems by Pixar when they got their hands on it. It has essentially be reported that the original adaptation of William Joyce's 1993 book by Disney had few flaws, but that meddling and other delays had caused the film's plot to dissolve into a mess, and Pixar prodded Anderson to clean up both the film's second-act scenes (in the future) and its villain. Along the way, the film was delayed by several months and its title changed to Meet the Robinsons. The plot remains faithful to the inspirational book, with an adopted boy genius inventing a machine that can scan memories and tell him who his real family is; when he's transported into the future by members of the Robinson family, he discovers --to nobody's surprise-- that all the misfits around him are the answer to his questions. The myriad of strange futuristic characters, none of whom actually seeming related, presented the problem for Pixar, for their nonsensical relationships and ultra-strange renderings seemed better suited for one of Tim Burton's normal psychodelic projects than a mainstream kid's flick. It's no wonder, therefore, that Danny Elfman stepped into the project, despite trying to avoid straight animation throughout his career, and immediately found inspiration.
