Cute - bleagh - robots

nwhyte a while back was blogging about what he most dislikes in SF. His third choice - cute robots. He comments 'I'm probably the only person who feels like this'.

I hate cute robots. The Scutters in Red Dwarf are tangentially cute, but they make sense as functional tools, so I like them. Marvin the paranoid android is exempted as not cute. All other cute robots make me want to vomit. They blight any film or TV series in which they appear. They are like a marker of 'rubbish SF' to me.
