Series 1, Episode 6 - Meet The Robo Parents

Zig and Zag create Robo-parents simply to use them to get the family deal at the Pizzeria, however the robots 'parental programme' gets out of control!

Further details

There's an opening night special at the Pizzeria, but children must be accompanied by an adult for the 'Kids Eat Free' family deal.

Time for an in-ge-henious idea as Zig and Zag create their own robo-parents to qualify for the deal. Unfortunately for the alien bros, the robo parents start acting like strict parents and it isn't long until they are on an over-parenting rampage. Robot rules and regulations abound as they police the neighbourhood, stamping out bad behaviour and forcing the naughty cage on all the neighbours.
