Meet Rhoobart.

He's tarnished and tattered and, worst of all, his heart's broken. He'll have to go to the Spare Parts Mart, dig through their parts, and find a new heart.

Meet Poptart, the robot. She's energetic and smart and has her own ideas about broken hearts. "You just need a jump start!"

And that's how two robots who are nothing but spare parts meet and make each other whole in this riotous and rhythmic robot love story from the creators of The Ant and the Grasshopper and The Crocodile and the Scorpion.
