I can distinctly remember watching some 15 years ago a cartoon where in robots were helpers to humans in a futuristic city. A faction of Robots (and perhaps humans, even maybe predominataely humans) however were some how rebelling against the status quo.
I specifically remember one scene where a bunch of kids are playing baseball, and drawing up teams. A helper robot is then asked to join one team. The other team complains but they eventually allow it.
Does this ring any bells? The robots all seemed very much like Transformers, but I'm fairly certain they weren't.
Edit: It's not unlikely that I'm wrong and this is an episode from one of the older Transformers shows... I've re-tagged appropriately.
