Episode guide
"Mr. Young"
"Mr. Detention"
"Mr. Roboto" is the second episode of Mr.Young overall, as well as the second episode of the first season.


When Adam's class goes out of control, Rachel tells him to relax because he's "a man, not a machine." Adam gets the idea to create a robot to discipline his class. He names the robot ARTHUR (Automated Robotic Teenager Hippopatomus Umbrella Rainbow). The robot has three directives: 1) Protect Adam, 2) Obey all instructions unless it presents a danger to Adam, and 3) Make toast.

Arthur wanders around the school. Meanwhile, Ivy lines up a bunch of boys so she can choose one to be her fake boyfriend to make Hutch jealous. She sees Arthur and lets him be her fake boyfriend. They agree to have lunch together. Arthur later asks Principal Tater where the cafeteria is, and Tater asks him who he is. He replies he is a new student. Principal Tater finds out Arthur is skilled in sports, and calls for a toast, but Arthur takes it literally and fires toast out of his built in toaster in his butt. Principal Tater asks why he has a butt toaster, and he responds that he is a robot created by Adam. Tater figuratively says he will kill Adam, but Arthur again takes it literally and now "Must Destroy Tater."

Adam and the gang all dress up as Tater, and Arthur gets confused and breaks down. However, in the end it is revealed he is not dead, leading up to the events of Mr. Robot 2.0.
