Clang Invasion is a Canadian-Singaporean-Australian animated television series produced in 2007 for Canadian children's programming channel YTV.

Plot[edit]

Three alien robots, Rivet, Widgit and Socket, accidentally crashed their spaceship on a backyard tree in Earth. Human twins Robin and Daisy Harrison, and their pet dog Sam went to investigate the crash, where they encounter the robots.[1] Not capable of returning to Planet Clang, the robots becomes friends with Robin and Daisy, made Sam speak by installing a voice box, and utilise a spectrum of gadgetry for their goals. The twins also has to keep the robots a secret.

Characters[edit]

  • Rivet: (voiced by Patrick McKenna) The captain of the spaceship, Rivet is a male robot and inventor that serves as a genius to the kids, offering them his inventions. He discovered information about Earth from its old commercial broadcasts into space.
  • Widgit: (voiced by Linda Kash) The spaceship's navigator and maintainer, Widgit is a female robot who performs poorly technologically compared to the other robots but sympathizes with living things. She can contact with any living thing after accidentally devouring one of Rivet's gadgets.
  • Socket: (voiced by Doug Hadders) The spaceship's security officer, Socket is a simpler robot, unlike the others. As an old robot, his parts frequently fall off, with Rivet reattaching back the parts. His head also acts as an object storage.
  • Robin Harrison: (voiced by Julie Lemieux) A 7-year-old human boy, Robin thinks the arrival of the robots in his background is the best thing in his life.
  • Daisy Harrison: (voiced by Annick Obonsawin) A 7-year-old human girl, Daisy isn't as wise as her age in contrast to him, despite believing the contrary.
  • Sam: (voiced by Brad Adamson) The Harrisons' dog, Sam was given a voice box on his collar from the robots in order to speak. He is talkative.
