Does anyone remember an obscure short lived cartoon in the 1980s. I remember it had 3 characters, boy, girl and a baby robot. Red bodies, white head, yellow belts and yellow and blue shoes. They made toys of them and when you used batteries they played the theme song. that is all I can remember...

    You seem to know a lot of the details about the style, can you tell us if it was Dark or Bright, Anime or American or something else. Was the animation cheap or clean? Was there any shading or was everything flat-painted. Were the backgrounds minimal or detailed? – DampeS8N Dec 20 '12 at 15:40
  • Yes, please update this question. What was the accent/language used? Where were you living? – Solemnity Jan 5 '13 at 6:54

    @Valorum Except the OP specifically mentions shoe and belt colour. The Telebugs don't have shoes or belts. I feel like Telebugs is not the right answer. – Clonkex Sep 13 '18 at 22:37

Telebugs (aka The Gigglebytes) seems awfully close, despite only one red-bodied bot:

enter image description here

The Telebugs were a hi-tech trio of merry monitored robots created by absent-minded Professor Brainstrain - or indeed, 'Bwainstwain' owing to his unfortunate lisp. Theses robots were 'Pwogwammed to help people in twouble', but more specifically to combat the new threat of computerized villains and advanced adversaries springing up around the country.

The Telebugs' leader was a white-shelled droid called Chip. He was a calculation robot, able to process data and statistics at a phenomenal rate. Samantha was the yellow one. She was a hi-tech monitor and tracking device. Her bow-tie was actually a spinning radar. Then there was Bug, the red robot programmed to acquire video footage and pictures. Bug came with a sidekick called Mic, a mobile independent camera.

And yes, there were toys.
