The Party is the thirty-first episode of Season 1 of Robot and Monster.


Robot has an elegant family party to attend, but he can't tell his eccentric cousin about it.



  • This episode marks Crazy Cousin Gizmo's second appearance. The first one was in Apartment 3 1/2.
  • Robot's father is mentioned in this episode, as well as his portrait revealed.
    • Oddly though, he doesn't appear at the family party.
    • Also, he didn't appear in the holiday special, Baconmas.
  • This is the second time we see Robot scratch his bottom. The first time was in Model Citizen.
  • This is the second time Gart appears in an episode's title card.
  • During the scene when Arpa denies knowing her nephew to Lady Madame, Crazy Cousin Gizmo takes off his hat, duplicating his self-portrait that's behind him.
  • During the scene where it is revealed that Ogo has been tracking Robot and Monster with a specified device launched in Robot's antenna, if you look closely at the book he's writing in, the title on the cover reads 'Ogo's Dream'.
    • This also marks the second time we see inside Ogo's apartment. The first time was in Ogo's Friend.
    • This is the second appearance of that book, as it was first shown during a flashback in Speak Marf Speak.
  • This episode shares the same name as The Amazing World of Gumball episode The Party.
    • A Season 2 episode of The Exes shares the same name as well.
    • An episode of Animaniacs also shared the same title.


(as the DeFault family reluctantly awaits the unveiling of Robot's newest invention)

Robot: (to Arpa) Mother. (to Grandma) Grandma. (glares at Gart) Evil brother. Thank you for coming tonight.

Arpa: You promised us finger sandwiches.

(after realizing its Crazy Cousin Gizmo who has unexpectedly visited them)

Robot: Aren't you supposed to be in a mental institution?

Crazy Cousin Gizmo: They let me out when I told them I wasn't hearing voices anymore!

Robot: (excited) You're not? That's great!

Crazy Cousin Gizmo: Oh, I still hear them! (whispers) I just don't tell anyone. (laughs) It was Princess Invisible's idea! (points toward 'her')

Monster: She's clever!

Crazy Cousin Gizmo: And rude!(points at 'her' next to the fridge)
