(mbc.net) Ben Jahrvi is the co-inventor of the cute robot Number Five and has just moved to the city, where he lives in a truck and sells toy Number Fives as a street vendor.

One day luck strikes in the form of Sandy, a toy buyer in dire straits who offers Ben $50,000 if he can quickly churn out a thousand toy robots.

Ben and his sketchy partner Fred begin to manufacture the toys in a warehouse.

They soon find the building is also used by thieves, preparing to rob the bank across the street.

With things appearing their bleakest, a crate arrives,inside is the new and improved Number Five, who now insists on being called Johnny Five.
