Because Mum and Dad are busy, they decide to buy robots to put their daughter to bed. At first, things work out. One of the robots makes spaghetti and another cleans up after dinner is over. However, when the Wash-bot tries to give her a bath and sees her alligator bath toy, the robot becomes convinced that the girl is in danger and starts a chain reaction of the robots getting confused and causing all kinds of problems. In the end, the girl has to put herself to bed and wait for her parents to come home to deal with the mess that the robots made.
