Connections to Star Wars?Edit

Wikipedia's entry on T-Bob (as of 08/2009) has an entire section devoted to a purported connection between T-Bob and astromech droids similar to R2-D2. His name is cited as a possible corruption of an Industrial Automaton droid designation, "T8-08". This would be highly unlikely for a number of reasons, the first of which being that the only canon droids with a T designation existed about 3,000 years before R2-D2 and looked nothing like T-Bob; more importantly, the Star Wars universe uses an alphabet called Aurebesh as opposed to any Earth-based writing system. The Aurebesh phonetic equivalent letter to T is called "Trill", and looks more like a downward-pointing arrow than a T. There are no letters in the Aurebesh character set that could be easily mistaken for the Roman letter T. Similarly, Aurebesh characters for B ("Besh") and O ("Osk") are unlikely to be mistaken for Roman characters, though the trapezoid-shaped Osk comes close if one wishes to stretch credulity to the breaking point.

Realistically, the only in-universe similarities between T-Bob and anything Star Wars related is the parallel of intelligent children building robot friends (which, curiously, Scott accomplished with T-Bob nearly 15 years before Anakin Skywalker built C-3PO).

On the production side, it must be acknowleged that T-Bob's character and personality design owes much to R2-D2 and C-3PO, as well as earlier depictions of companion robots like Huey, Dewey and Louie, Robby the Robot, and most especially V.I.N.CENT and B.O.B..
