The pilot episode for the series Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? was created by Greg Miller, produced at Hanna-Barbera, and aired as part of Cartoon Network's showcase The Cartoon Cartoon Show on June 16, 2000.
Robot Jones was originally voice by a Word 98 text-to-speech voice in this episode and the first season of the series, but was later taken over by Bobby Block in the second season. Bobby also redubbed all of Robot's lines in later versions of the first season episodes.
The redubbed version of the pilot was the only version that has been floating around for years. The original version of the pilot with the Word 98 "Junior" voice remained lost until it was uploaded to Vimeo by NickDanielson around August 2016. Viewbob has uploaded a recreation of the pilot with the original voice onto YouTube in the summer of 2017.
