As Seen In: Silent Running (1972)

No, Scrooge McDuck's great grandnephews weren't anthropomorphic duck robots. This trio was a group of service robots that Freeman Lowell, a botanist working to preserve plant life for an eventual return to Earth, befriended and reprogrammed to do a number of different tasks like surgery and easy gardening. Call us crazy, but this sounds a lot like an award-winning movie that rhymes with Mall-E.
