Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki

Who You Calling Garbage? or Who You Callin' Garbage is the 5th episode of Season 1 of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (TV series).


Flint Lockwood builds a machine that can take out the garbage, but the robot goes awry and thinks that everyone in Swallow Falls is garbage.


The episode begins with Flint showing off his inventions (Laser Soap, Reverse Dynamite and the Come-Here Mirror) to the disinterest of the townspeople. Tim Lockwood tells Flint to do his chores which is to take out the garbage. This gives Flint an Idea to make a robot that takes out the trash, called the "Flint Lockwood Garbage Go Bye Bye Robot."

The robot (often referred to by fans as “The Garbage Robot” or “Trash-Bot”, Voiced by Evany Rosen) is a success, but Tim is disappointed that Flint missed the point of being asked to take out the trash.

The robot starts thinking everyone in the town is garbage. He then moves Steve, Brent, Mayor Shelbourne and all the town people to a garbage island. Sam sees this and warns Flint. He doesn't believe her, saying she's taking Tim's side over Flint's. However, when he sees the robot vacuum Sam and move her to the island, he reluctantly agrees.

At the garbage island, Steve is feared by Mayor Shelbourne, and the mayor starts taking orders from Steve and commands everyone to do what Steve wants.

Flint walks around Swallow Falls and sees nobody except him. Realizing his fault, he agrees with his dad. The robot sees Flint and dashes toward him (While “Hikari Sentai Maskman” by Hironobu Kageyama plays in the background). He tried to invent new ideas to protect himself from the robot. Tim (who wasn't moved to the island yet) advises Flint to not over think things. But, after reaching, the robot vacuumed Tim to the garbage island. After that, the robot tries to vacuum Flint, insulting him by saying “Look at you! Failing, Stinking, Losing, Lameing!” in the process. Flint calls out the Come-here mirror and lets the robot see itself. The robot considers itself garbage and vacuums itself to the garbage island.

Back at the island, Sam is being offered as a sacrifice to Steve. However, when the FLGGBBR falls on the island, Steve destroys it, and Mayor Shelbourne proclaims himself as mayor again.

Back at the town, Flint is no longer upset at Tim anymore. He admits his mistakes and Tim accepts. However, Flint doesn't learn his lesson and invents a dishwashing robot instead of doing the dishes himself.
