In Toy Story, Robot and Snake are called by Woody for podium duty for a staff meeting. Once Buzz Lightyear arrives in Andy's room, Robot, like most of Andy's toys, take a liking to him. During the "Strange Things" sequence, when all the toys are working out, Robot stands on his head to let Buzz run on his treads like a treadmill. Robot also helps Buzz repair his ship.
When Woody is accused for pushing Buzz out of the window, Robot is one of the toys that attacks him, (he pulls Woody's right arm) but stops when Andy comes into his room.
Later in the film, when Woody kicks R.C. out of the moving van, Robot attacks him, along with all the others, thinking that Woody was murdering R.C. by kicking him out of the moving van. When the toys had realised that they had made a big mistake, Robot holds onto Slinky's tail to help Woody and Buzz catch up with the moving van but stops when Slinky couldn't hold on. Robot waves his hands in the air when he sees Woody and Buzz fly on the rocket.
Robot is seen again at the end of the film, listening to Sarge's reports on Andy and Molly's Christmas presents.
In Toy Story 2, Robot had a smaller role than in the first film and didn't speak. He is first seen with Mr. Mike and Snake when Buster comes into Andy's room. He is later seen assisting Buzz during the yard sale roll call. He is also seen watching the re-enactment of Woody's kidnapping, and later at the end watching Wheezy sing You've Got a Friend in Me.
In Toy Story 3, Robot makes an appearance in the home videos that Mrs. Davis took of Andy when he was a kid. Back in the present, he is no longer with Andy's toys, and it's explained by Woody that he was sold at a yard sale.
Robot makes a few appearances in the Toy Story video game, reflecting his appearance in the film.
In the first level, "That Old Army Game," Robot is seen with Rocky next to the baby monitor, awaiting the reports from the Green Army Men on the contents of Andy's birthday presents.
In the next level, "Red Alert!," the toys must quickly return to their spots after Sergeant reports that Andy and his birthday guests are returning to the bedroom. With Woody's assistance, Robot must escape from a nightstand and return to his place in the toy chest before Andy's return.
Once Woody accidentally knocks Buzz out the window, the toys believe this to be out of jealousy. In the level "Revenge of the Toys," Robot is one of the many toys out to hurt Woody on his escape from Andy's room.
In the Game Boy version, Robot has an additional appearance in the next level, "Run Rex, Run!" While Woody tries to escape the hostile toys with Rex, Robot and other toys try to stand in their way.
- Robot has some notable similarities to WALL-E, particularly his robotic arms and treads.
- In the Christmas ending from the Toy Story Animated Storybook game, clicking on Robot will make him imitate the robot from Lost in Space.
- Robot has only three spoken lines in Toy Story.
- Robot's mouth lights up when he talks, similar to Emperor Zurg.
- Both Robot and Snake have been known to be the most popular background characters.
