Lewis was just a kid when he realized that he had a knack for inventing things. He was always tinkering with gadgets and contraptions, trying to push the boundaries of what was possible. He dreamed of inventing something that would change the world, something that would make his mark on history. But despite his best efforts, Lewis found himself hitting a wall. There was one thing he couldn’t invent, one thing he couldn’t create, and that was a time machine.

Ever since he was a baby, Lewis had been left at the doorstep of an orphanage with nothing but a cryptic note that read, “This baby’s destiny is greatness.” He had never known his real family, but he was determined to find them. And the only way he could do that was by going back in time.

Lewis knew that building a time machine was no small feat, but he was convinced that he could do it. He spent years researching, experimenting, and building, but every time he thought he was close to a breakthrough, something would go wrong. Time and time again, his inventions failed, and Lewis began to lose hope. But then, one day, a strange boy appeared at his doorstep, claiming to be from the future.

Chapter 1:

“The Inventor’s Dilemma”

The doorbell rang, and Lewis jumped up from his workbench, his heart racing with anticipation. He had been waiting for this moment for years, perhaps his whole life. For as long as he could remember, he had been obsessed with the idea of time travel, of going back in time to find his mother. And now, it seemed, his dreams were about to come true.

With shaking hands, Lewis opened the door and found himself face-to-face with a boy who looked to be about his own age. He had wild red hair, freckles, and an impish grin that made him look like he was up to no good. “Hey, kid,” the boy said. “I’m Wilbur. You must be Lewis.”

Lewis nodded, still trying to catch his breath. “You’re from the future?” he asked, his voice trembling with excitement.

“That’s right,” Wilbur replied. “And I’ve come to take you back with me. You see, we have a little problem in the future, and I think you’re the only one who can help us solve it.”

Lewis’s heart leaped with joy. This was it, the moment he had been waiting for. He grabbed his backpack and followed Wilbur out the door, barely stopping to say goodbye to the other kids at the orphanage.

As they walked down the street, Wilbur chattered excitedly about all the amazing things Lewis was going to see in the future, all the incredible inventions and technologies that lay ahead. But Lewis was barely listening. All he could think about was his mother, the woman who had left him at the orphanage all those years ago.

When they arrived at Wilbur’s time machine, Lewis felt a thrill of anticipation. This was it, the key to his dreams, the tool that would allow him to travel through time and find his mother. But as he looked at the machine, he felt a sinking feeling in his stomach. It didn’t look like anything he had ever seen before. It was sleek and modern, covered in buttons and switches and screens that all seemed to be blinking and flashing at once.

“Um, Wilbur?” Lewis said hesitantly. “I don’t know anything about this machine. I don’t know how to operate it, or how to control it, or-“

“Don’t worry, kid,” Wilbur said with a grin. “I’ll teach you everything you need to know.”

And with that, they climbed into the time machine and started their journey into the future. The machine hummed and whirred all around them, and Lewis felt his heart racing with excitement and fear. He had no idea what lay ahead, but he knew one thing for sure: this was going to be the adventure of a lifetime.

Chapter 2: “Meeting the Robinsons”

Wilbur Robinson arrives in his time machine, disguised as a flying car, to take Lewis to the future. Lewis is in disbelief, but he can’t resist the opportunity to see where his time machine will take him. As they fly through the night sky, Lewis sees the world below transform into a futuristic wonderland.

The pair finally arrive and land their time machine at an enormous, towering building. Wilbur jumps out and excitedly greets Lewis, pulling him out of the time machine and showing him around their home. Wilbur refers to the place as a mansion, but for Lewis, it’s more like a museum of strange and wacky inventions from the future. Lewis takes it all in, barely able to contain his excitement.

“Welcome to the future, Lewis! This is where I live, with my family!” Wilbur exclaims. “The Robinsons are a bit…unconventional, but they’re the best family you could ever meet!”

As they enter the building, Lewis begins to see the Robinsons’ unique sense of style and personality. A woman wearing a dress made out of fruit rambles down the hallway, a robot butler zooms past them, and a little boy with blonde hair is spinning around in circles. Lewis starts to feel like he’s landed in a different dimension.

“Whoa, these guys are wild,” Lewis says, turning to Wilbur.

“Yeah, they’re a bit different, but they’re all really smart,” Wilbur replies, walking ahead and leading Lewis into the main room of the mansion.

In the center of the room is a large, circular platform, which is completely covered in buttons and switches. Surrounding the platform are a bunch of odd-looking machines and devices, all of which are humming and buzzing with excitement.

“This is my dad’s invention room,” Wilbur explains, gesturing to the platform. “It’s where he comes up with all his crazy ideas. He’s kind of a genius, but sometimes he gets a little carried away.”

Just then, a man wearing an outrageous bowtie and a lab coat walks in. He seems to have a permanent smile on his face, as if he’s just solved a difficult equation. Lewis can’t help but be drawn to him.

“Hey, Dad! This is Lewis,” Wilbur introduces him.

“Hello there, my boy! Welcome to the future, where anything is possible!” the man exclaims, shaking Lewis’ hand. “I’m Cornelius Robinson, the mastermind behind all these inventions you see.”

Lewis is in awe of Cornelius’ energy and enthusiasm; the man seems to be a perfect fit for the strange world he’s found himself in. Cornelius goes on to show Lewis around the mansion, introducing him to the rest of the family.

“This is my wife, Franny, and my daughter, Lucille,” Cornelius says, gesturing to a woman wearing a dress covered in frogs and a girl with a headset on.

“And this is my son, Goob,” Wilbur adds, pointing to a boy with messy black hair who seems to be scowling at them.

Lewis quickly notices that Goob doesn’t seem very happy, but he figures it’s just because he’s a moody teenager. He’s more interested in the inventions that the Robinsons are showing him. There’s a machine that can turn metal into spaghetti, a hat that can make you invisible, and even a device that lets you breathe underwater.

“I can’t believe all of this stuff really works,” Lewis exclaims, amazed at the Robinsons’ creations. “You’re all so talented!”

“Thanks, Lewis! You’re pretty clever yourself,” Franny responds, smiling warmly.

As Lewis spends more time with the Robinsons, he starts to feel like he’s one of them. They’re all so adventurous and innovative, and they’ve welcomed him into their family with open arms. He starts to realize that, even though he’s never had a real family before, he’s finally found a place where he belongs.

But as night falls on their adventures, little do they know that Bowler Hat Guy and his hat of evil are lurking in the shadows, waiting for their chance to strike and wreak havoc on the Robinsons’ lives.

Chapter 3: “The Time Machine”

Lewis, Wilbur, and the Robinson family arrived at the Robinson’s home in an impressive flying car, built with the latest futuristic technology. The house was an eye-catching sight with a giant metal dome-like structure, with various gadgets and machines scattered around it.

As they pulled up to the house, Lewis was immediately greeted by a group of wacky and whimsical family members. Each one of them was dressed in crazy attire, and all of them looked so happy and content. Wilbur smiled as he watched Lewis take it all in, “Welcome to the future!”

As they entered the home, Lewis was awestruck. The interior was just as amazing as the exterior, with a plethora of robotic devices and inventions at every turn. The Robinson family proudly showed Lewis their latest inventions, which included a talking coffee maker, automatic lawn mower, and a device that transformed water into a fizzy drink.

Lewis couldn’t help but feel envious as he looked around, thinking his inventions were child’s play compared to the Robinson family’s creations. However, he felt a strong sense of belonging as well, with everyone making him feel like one of their own.

Meanwhile, Wilbur led Lewis to a workshop, which the Robinsons had set up for him to work on his time machine prototype. Lewis was stunned as he saw all the advanced tools and machines at his disposal, amazed by how much more advanced they were than his lab back home.

Wilbur began helping Lewis with his time machine. “With just a few tweaks, we can complete it,” Wilbur said, giving Lewis a boost of confidence.

Lewis was excited and diligently worked on his invention. However, as he worked, Bowler Hat Guy and his hat of evil continued to plot their sinister scheme. They snuck into the workshop, hoping to sabotage the time machine.

As Lewis was putting the finishing touches on the machine, he noticed some strange wires that he didn’t remember installing. He thought it was strange. However, he dismissed it, assuming it was just his forgetfulness.

Unbeknownst to him, Bowler Hat Guy had tampered with his machine. As Lewis activated the device, it shook and groaned violently, then exploded in a blinding flash, filling the workshop with a puff of smoke.

Lewis was left dejected, as he had ruined his chance to find his mother. Everything had gone up in smoke, and Wilbur could see the disappointment on his friend’s face.

However, the Robinsons were quick to rally around their new friend and offer support. “Don’t worry, Lewis. We’ll find a way to help you get your mother back,” said Wilbur, offering some words of encouragement to Lewis.

While Lewis was still feeling down, the family decided to cheer him up by taking him on a tour of their future home. They showed him their latest inventions and played games with him, bringing back Lewis’s sense of wonder and joy.

As the day wore on, the Robinsons and Lewis sat down to dinner. They were all happy and content, sharing stories and laughter. Lewis realized that he didn’t just want to find his mother but also wanted to belong to a family like the Robinsons.

As he drifted off to sleep that night, Lewis knew he had found a new family. He was grateful for the Robinsons’ kindness and support and knew that they would help him find his mother, no matter what it takes.

But little did they know, Bowler Hat Guy and his hat of evil were not done yet. They were still plotting in the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. The question was, when would that be? And how would the Robinsons and Lewis stop them from succeeding?

Chapter 4: “A Blast from the Past”

Previously, Lewis had been tirelessly working on his time machine to find his mother but had never found success. However, with the help of Wilbur, he travelled to the future and met the Robinson family, who embraced him as one of their own. Determined to aid Lewis in his quest, the Robinsons welcomed him with open arms and offered to help him complete his time machine.

As Lewis delved deeper into his search for his mother, he stumbled upon a shocking revelation. Wilbur, who had been mentoring Lewis through his journey, revealed that his mother was in fact a scientist. Overjoyed by the news, Lewis sought to know more about his mother and requested Wilbur to reveal her identity.

However, the much-awaited reunion was short-lived as a sudden surprise interrupted their meeting. A blast from the past arrived in the form of the villainous Bowler Hat Guy and his evil hat, Doris. The cunning duo had been waiting for their chance to steal Lewis’s time machine and use it to alter the course of history in their own favor.

Bowler Hat Guy was a dangerous foe, and his hat of evil Doris was an intelligent machine that often outsmarted even her creator. They were determined to capture Lewis’s time machine, and the Robinsons knew they had to band together to stop them. Lewis and the Robinsons devised a plan to thwart their evil scheme, and they set out to put their plan into action.

The battle commenced, and the Robinsons fought valiantly against Bowler Hat Guy and Doris. The action-packed sequence was packed with twists and turns as each side tried to outdo the other. Lewis, aided by the Robinsons, tried to protect his time machine, but Bowler Hat Guy and Doris seemed to have the upper hand.

However, in a moment of inspiration, Lewis came up with a plan to defeat Bowler Hat Guy. He realized that Bowler Hat Guy’s actions were motivated by the pain of experiencing his own previous failure, and that by showing him kindness and support, they could defeat him.

In a heartwarming moment, Lewis offered Bowler Hat Guy a way out of his past mistakes and a chance to start over. Bowler Hat Guy was hesitant at first but was ultimately convinced by Lewis’s sincerity, and he handed over Doris, thereby ending the battle.

With Bowler Hat Guy and Doris defeated, Lewis and the Robinsons could finally focus on finding his mother. However, the events of the day had left Lewis feeling conflicted. He had discovered that his mother was a brilliant scientist but was unsure if he was ready to meet her yet. So, he decided to take some time to think and plan his next move.

As Lewis retreated to the Robinsons’ luxurious estate, he couldn’t help but feel grateful for the new family he had found. His journey had been tough, but with the support of the Robinsons, he had grown in ways he never thought possible. Now, he could finally start to imagine a future where he was no longer alone, and the possibilities were endless.

In conclusion, Chapter 4 was packed with action, emotion, and unexpected twists as Lewis and the Robinsons faced off against their formidable adversary. It showed that sometimes, even the most dangerous of situations could be resolved by a simple act of kindness and understanding. It left readers on the edge of their seats and eager to see what the next chapter had in store.

Chapter 5: “The Science Fair Showdown”

The science fair was abuzz with excitement, and Lewis could feel his heart racing in his chest. This was the moment he had been waiting for – the perfect opportunity to display his latest invention and finally gain the recognition he deserved. As he set up his exhibit, he couldn’t help but feel a sense of apprehension at the thought of going up against the best young inventors in the city.

But Lewis wasn’t alone. The Robinsons had come to support him, and Wilbur was right by his side, cheering him on. Even though the time machine was still incomplete, they were determined to help Lewis win the fair. However, they were not alone, Bowler Hat Guy and his evil hat were also present, ready to spoil their plans.

The judging began, and Lewis nervously watched as each project was evaluated. It was now his turn, and he took a deep breath before proudly presenting his time machine to the judges. As he explained its workings, he could see the impressed expressions on their faces, and he felt a surge of pride in his chest.

Suddenly, chaos erupted. Bowsler Hat Guy and his hat of evil had snuck in unnoticed and began wreaking havoc on the fair. The hat had grown in size and began sucking all the inventions into it. Lewis and the Robinsons rushed to the scene, determined to save the day.

With that, the Science Fair became the setting for an epic showdown between good and evil. Bowler Hat Guy and his hat proved to be formidable opponents, with their knowledge of science and technology working against the team. They started to put all of the competitors’ inventions in the hat and with each invention, the hat grew more powerful.

The Robinson family put their heads together to come up with a plan to stop Bowler Hat Guy. They used their knowledge and abilities to try and outsmart the hat and save all the inventions that were sucked up.

Lewis, meanwhile, had an idea. He knew that in order to stop Bowler Hat Guy, he had to think outside the box. With the Robinsons’ help, he worked on modifying his time machine to create a time vortex. Their plan was to use the time vortex to transport the hat and its contents back to the era from whence it came.

As they executed their plan, Bowler Hat Guy became increasingly desperate. He knew that if he didn’t act fast, he would lose his chance to ruin the fair and gain control of the future. He tried to stop them by attacking Lewis and the Robinsons, but they fought back with everything they had.

The final showdown was a blur of movement, with the hat of evil being sucked into the time vortex and transported back to its own time. The fairgoers cheered as they realised that the inventions that were sucked up by the hat were now returned to their respective owners.

As the dust settled, Lewis and the Robinsons celebrated their victory. Though they knew that there would always be more challenges to face, they had proven that determination and teamwork could overcome even the most formidable foes. And with that, the science fair came to a close, leaving Lewis feeling grateful for the many unexpected twists and turns that had brought him to that moment in time.

Chapter 6: “The Robinsons’ Secret”

The Robinson family was always a mystery to Lewis, but he never really questioned it until now. As he spent more time with them, he began to realize that there was more to them than their quirky and adventurous personalities. One evening after dinner, Lewis decided to approach Wilbur about it.

“Hey, Wilbur, can I talk to you for a moment?” asked Lewis.

“Sure thing, buddy. What’s up?” replied Wilbur.

“Well, I was wondering if you could tell me a bit more about your family. I mean, I know they’re all amazing inventors and adventurers, but there seems to be something else going on that I can’t quite put my finger on,” explained Lewis.

Wilbur looked at Lewis with a sense of understanding and reluctance. He knew that his family’s secret was a delicate matter and one that he didn’t feel comfortable disclosing. However, he also knew that Lewis was a trustworthy friend and that it was time for him to learn the truth.

“Well, Lewis, it’s not an easy thing to talk about. But you’re right, there is more to my family than meets the eye,” began Wilbur.

He went on to explain that his family had a time machine of their own and that they used it to go back in time to fix mistakes and prevent disasters. He revealed that his father, Cornelius Robinson, had invented the time machine but had since disappeared, leaving the family with a heavy burden.

“Wait, your dad invented a time machine? That’s amazing!” exclaimed Lewis.

“Thanks, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. You see, my dad disappeared years ago, and we don’t know what happened to him. We’ve been trying to locate him ever since, but with no luck so far,” said Wilbur solemnly.

Lewis could see the pain in Wilbur’s eyes, but he also noticed something else. There was something that Wilbur was holding back, something that he wasn’t telling him.

“Wilbur, there’s something else, isn’t there?” asked Lewis.

Wilbur hesitated for a moment, but then he decided it was time to come clean. He told Lewis that he had a hidden agenda for bringing him to the future – to meet his mother.

“Wait, what? My mother?” said Lewis, surprised.

“Yes, Lewis, your mother. She’s here in the future, and I thought it would be a good opportunity for you to finally meet her. That’s why I brought you here,” explained Wilbur.

Lewis was speechless. He had been searching for his mother for so long, and now he was finally going to meet her. But he couldn’t help but feel conflicted. What if she didn’t want to see him? What if she had moved on with her life?

“I don’t know, Wilbur. I mean, what if she doesn’t want to see me?” said Lewis.

“Look, I can’t promise you anything, but you’ll never know unless you try. And besides, you have us here to support you no matter what happens,” replied Wilbur.

Lewis thought about it for a moment and realized that Wilbur was right. He couldn’t let fear hold him back from finally meeting his mother.

“Okay, Wilbur, I’ll do it. Let’s go see my mom,” said Lewis with a newfound sense of determination.

The two boys set off to find Lewis’ mother, not knowing what to expect. Along the way, Lewis couldn’t help but feel nervous and excited at the same time. As they approached the house, Lewis could see a figure through the window. It was her, his mother.

He took a deep breath and knocked on the door. The Robinsons were standing behind him, offering their support. The door opened, and there she was – his mother.

They stood there, staring at each other for what felt like an eternity. Tears started to well up in Lewis’ eyes as he took in the moment. He had finally found his mother, and she was right in front of him.

“I can’t believe it’s you. You’re really here,” said Lewis with a shaky voice.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long, Lewis,” replied his mother, pulling him into a warm embrace.

The Robinsons looked on with a sense of happiness and relief. They had finally helped Lewis find what he had been searching for, and they were glad to have played a part in it.

As the night drew on, Lewis spent time with his mother, catching up on lost time. The Robinsons gave them their space and allowed them to bond. It was a moment that Lewis would never forget, and he was grateful for the Robinsons’ help in making it happen.

Before he knew it, it was time to go back to his own time. Lewis hugged his mother tightly, not wanting to let go. He knew that he would miss her, but he also knew that he had finally found closure.

As they arrived back in the present, Lewis felt a sense of peace. He had finally found his mother, and he knew that he had a family – the Robinsons – who would always be there for him.

Chapter 7: “A Journey Through Time”

Lewis and Wilbur sat in the cockpit of the Time Machine, Wilbur was flipping switches and pressing buttons, while Lewis was adjusting the coordinates on the console. Together, they were embarking on a journey through time, a chance for Lewis to see history and for Wilbur to show off his Time Machine.

“Are you ready?” Wilbur asked with a grin.

“As ready as I’ll ever be,” Lewis responded, holding on tight to the console.

Wilbur hit the big red button, and the Time Machine shot off into the time vortex, the colors and lights blurring together as they traveled through time. Lewis felt his stomach drop as they moved, but he couldn’t help but feel a sense of wonder.

“Where are we going first?” Lewis asked, looking around at the flashing lights and levers.

Wilbur grinned mischievously, “You’ll see.”

Moments later, they arrived at their first destination; ancient Egypt. They stepped out of the Time Machine and looked around at the towering pyramids and sphinxes.

“Wow,” Lewis said in amazement.

Wilbur nodded, “This is one of my favorite places to visit. Check this out.” He pressed a button on the Time Machine console and a holographic guide appeared in front of them. “She’ll show us around.”

They followed the guide, learning about the history of the pyramids, and even witnessing the construction of the Sphinx. It was like being in a virtual reality game, but it was all real.

As they were about to leave, they heard a commotion behind them. A group of bandits had surrounded the guide and were demanding her treasure.

“What do we do?” Lewis asked, feeling nervous.

“We have to help her,” Wilbur said, pulling out a futuristic gadget from his pocket.

They rushed to the guide’s aid and with Wilbur’s gadget, they were able to disarm and subdue the bandits. The guide thanked them and gave them a small treasure as a token of appreciation.

As they headed back to the Time Machine, they could see that Bowler Hat Guy had been following them through time. He was determined to steal the Time Machine and use it for his own evil means.

“We have to be careful,” Wilbur said, looking around nervously.

They decided to visit a safer time period and landed in ancient Greece. They wandered through the bustling streets, enjoying the sights and sounds of the marketplace.

Suddenly, they heard the sound of trumpets and saw a group of soldiers marching by them. They soon realized that they were in the middle of a war zone. They ducked behind a building, trying to stay out of sight.

“What do we do?” Lewis asked, feeling scared.

“We have to help them,” Wilbur said, determination in his eyes.

With Wilbur’s gadget, they were able to create a distraction that allowed the soldiers to escape. They were surprised when they saw that the leader of the soldiers was actually a young girl.

“Who are you?” Lewis asked, impressed.

“I am Athena, goddess of wisdom and war,” she said with a small smile.

Wilbur introduced himself and Lewis, explaining that they were traveling through time. Athena was fascinated by the Time Machine and asked if they could take her for a ride. They agreed and took her on a journey through time, showing her some of the amazing places they had seen.

As they were getting ready to leave ancient Greece, Bowler Hat Guy appeared out of nowhere, pointing a laser gun at them.

“Give me the Time Machine,” he demanded.

Wilbur, Lewis, and Athena stood their ground, refusing to give in to Bowler Hat Guy’s demands.

“I won’t let you take it,” Wilbur said, determination in his voice.

Bowler Hat Guy laughed, “You think you can defeat me? You’re just a boy.”

But Wilbur was not just a boy, he was a Robinson, and he had the courage and determination of one. With a quick flick of his gadget, he disarmed Bowler Hat Guy and sent him flying through time.

They jumped back into the Time Machine, feeling victorious. They had saved the day and continued on their journey through time, excited about the adventures that lay ahead.

Chapter 8: “The Final Showdown”

As Lewis and Wilbur traveled further back in time, they stumbled upon the lair of the Bowler Hat Guy. They decided to charge ahead and confront their enemy once and for all. However, they knew it would not be an easy task as the Bowler Hat Guy had an army of robots under his command. The future of the world was at stake, and they had to act swiftly.

The lair was dark, damp, and smelt of oil. As they cautiously made their way through the labyrinth of tunnels, they could hear the sound of metal slamming against metal. They peeked around the corner and saw the Bowler Hat Guy instructing his robots to increase production. Wilbur stepped forward and in a commanding voice, shouted “You have gone far enough, Bowler Hat Guy. It’s time to face justice.”

The Bowler Hat Guy turned around and laughed. “You are too late. Nothing can stop me now. Soon, I will have enough power to take over the world,” he said while pointing his cane at them.

Lewis stepped forward and said, “You may have more power than we do, but we have something more important than power, and that is love and family. We will fight for what is right and defend the future of this world.”

The Bowler Hat Guy sneered and commanded his army of robots to attack. At first, the heroes found it hard to defend themselves against the army of robots, but soon they began to work together and use their skills and knowledge to counter-attack.

Wilbur flew around the room, dodging the robots’ attacks and made quick work of them with his laser gun. At the same time, Lewis used his knowledge of science and technology to reprogram some of the robots to fight for them instead of against them. The Bowler Hat Guy was not impressed and commanded his hat to attack. The hat became a giant robot and was unlike anything they had ever seen before.

The giant robot was fast, agile and fired beams of energy from its eyes. At first, Lewis and Wilbur were taken aback, but they soon got their act together. Wilbur used his flying skills to evade the robot’s attacks, while Lewis used his time machine to go back to the future to get the Robinsons’ help.

When Lewis arrived back in the future, he quickly told the Robinsons what was happening, and they knew they had to act fast. They quickly got to work, building a new robot to help Lewis and Wilbur. Meanwhile, Bowler Hat Guy’s robot continued to cause chaos in the past, and it seemed like Wilbur and Lewis were losing the battle.

Just when things seemed to be at their darkest, the Robinson family arrived, and the giant robot turned towards them. They all worked together, using their unique abilities to take down the robot’s defenses.

Lewis used his knowledge to weaken the robot’s power supply, while Wilbur used his battle tactics to distract it. The Robinsons used their creative minds to come up with a plan and execute it. Eventually, the robot fell, and the Bowler Hat Guy was defeated.

With the victory secured, Lewis, Wilbur, and the Robinsons returned to the future, where they celebrated their success. As they enjoyed a meal together, they all shared stories and laughed, feeling closer and more like a family than ever before.

In the end, Lewis realized that family and love were more important than anything else, and he was grateful for the new family he had found in the Robinsons. The time machine was put away, and they all looked forward to the future, full of adventure and new possibilities, together.

Chapter 9: “A New Beginning”

The sun shone brightly over the Robinson residence as the family and Lewis enjoyed a hearty breakfast. Lewis couldn’t help but feel grateful for everything that had happened over the past few days. He had found his mother, saved the future, and most importantly, found a new family in the Robinsons.

As they sat around the table, Mrs. Robinson asked Lewis, “So, what do you plan on doing now that you’ve found your mom?”

Lewis thought for a moment, taking a sip of his orange juice. “I want to stay here with you guys. I don’t want to leave, because this is my home now.”

The family smiled, and Wilbur chimed in, “That sounds like a great idea! We could always use another inventor in the family.”

Lewis grinned, feeling a sense of belonging that he had yearned for his entire life. He had finally found a place where he fit in, where his quirks and inventions were celebrated.

After breakfast, the family headed out to the backyard to play some games. As they played frisbee, volleyball, and other activities, Lewis couldn’t help but notice the happiness and joy that radiated from everyone.

Suddenly, Lewis remembered something. “Hey, where’s Bowler Hat Guy? Shouldn’t he be locked up in jail or something?”

Uncle Art chuckled. “Oh, don’t worry about him. We sent him to work in a time prison, where he can’t cause any more trouble.”

Lewis breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that the future was safe from Bowler Hat Guy’s sinister plans.

As the day turned into evening, the family gathered around the living room to watch some TV. Lewis sat on the floor, tinkering with a small gadget, while everyone else lounged on the couches and chairs.

Suddenly, Carl, the robot butler, entered the room with a tray of cookies. “I made these for everyone to enjoy!” he exclaimed, offering the tray around.

The family eagerly grabbed a cookie, and Lewis took one too. As he bit into it, he noticed a peculiar taste. “What did you put in these, Carl?”

Carl looked surprised. “Just some sugar, flour, and eggs, like normal cookies.”

Lewis raised an eyebrow, and suddenly realized what had happened. “Carl, did you use the cookie invention I made yesterday?”

Carl looked sheepish. “Yes, I did. I wanted to surprise everyone with something new.”

The family laughed, and Mrs. Robinson leaned over to Lewis. “Looks like you’ve already made an impact on Carl,” she whispered.

Lewis smiled, feeling proud of himself for already making a change in his new family.

As the night drew on, Lewis headed to his room to start working on a new invention. He sat down at his desk and began sketching out some ideas, lost in his own thoughts.

Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. “Come in,” Lewis called out.

Wilbur entered the room, looking serious. “Hey, Lewis. Can we talk for a second?”

Lewis put down his sketchpad and turned to face Wilbur. “Sure, what’s up?”

Wilbur took a deep breath. “I know we’ve only known each other for a few days, but I have a favor to ask.”

Lewis nodded. “What is it?”

Wilbur looked nervous. “Well, we have this family tradition where we all work on an invention together every year. And, I was wondering if you would be interested in participating.”

Lewis felt a wave of excitement wash over him. “Of course! I would love to be a part of that.”

Wilbur grinned. “Great! It’s nothing too serious, just a fun little project. We’re going to start tomorrow morning. Don’t worry about coming up with an idea, we’ll work on it together.”

As Wilbur left the room, Lewis couldn’t help but feel a sense of anticipation. Working on an invention with the Robinsons was exactly what he needed to feel like he belonged.

The next morning, the family gathered around the kitchen table, each with their own ideas and suggestions. Lewis felt a sense of nervousness, wondering if he would be able to come up with something that fit with the family’s zany creativity.

As they discussed different ideas, Lewis suddenly had a stroke of inspiration. “What if we made a machine that could bring our ideas to life?”

The family looked curious, and Lewis continued. “I mean, we’re all inventors, right? We have so many ideas that never get realized. But, if we had a machine that could make them come to life, imagine the possibilities.”

The family mulled over the idea, and Uncle Art spoke up. “I like it. It’s like a brainstorming tool, but physical. We could call it the Idea Maker.”

Everyone else nodded in agreement, and they immediately set to work on designing and building the machine.

Hours turned into days, and the family worked tirelessly on the Idea Maker. Lewis felt like he was in his element, surrounded by like-minded individuals who shared his passion for innovation.

Finally, after several long days, the machine was complete. The family gathered around anxiously, wondering if their creation would work.

Lewis flipped the switch, and the machine whirred to life. Suddenly, there was a flash of light, and a small object materialized in the machine.

It was a toaster, with a spring-loaded mechanism that catapulted the toast into the air. The family cheered, and Lewis couldn’t help but laugh.

As they continued to use the machine, the family was amazed at the ideas it brought to life. They made a car that could fly, a hat that played music, and even a clock that could predict the future.

As the days turned into weeks, Lewis felt more at home than ever before. He had never had a family before, but the Robinsons felt like his true family.

One day, as they lounged in the backyard, watching the clouds go by, Wilbur turned to him. “You know, Lewis, you’ve really become a part of this family. You fit in perfectly.”

Lewis smiled, feeling a sense of warmth in his heart. “Thanks, Wilbur. I feel like I belong here.”

The family sat in comfortable silence for a moment, enjoying each other’s company. Suddenly, Uncle Art spoke up. “Hey, I have an idea for a new invention! What if we made a robot that could clean the house?”

The family laughed, and Lewis felt a sense of excitement wash over him. He knew that he had found his true home, with a family that loved and accepted him for who he was.

As the sun began to set, Lewis leaned back, feeling content. This was his new beginning, with a family that he would always cherish.

Some scenes from the movie Meet the Robinsons written by A.I.

Scene 1



LEWIS, a lanky, bespectacled, and awkward 12 year old, nervously prepares his invention for the science fair. He takes a deep breath and starts to power up the machine.

Suddenly, there’s a loud explosion, and the audience gasps.



My machine…it’s ruined!

WILBUR, a young boy with spiky hair, appears out of nowhere.


Don’t worry, I’ve got a way to help you fix it.


(looking skeptical)

Are you some kind of wizard?

WILBUR chuckles and shakes his head.


No, I’m from the future. And I know exactly what you need to build the time machine you’ve been dreaming of.


(eyes widen with amazement)

The future? That’s amazing! But how do I know I can trust you?



Well, I did just appear out of thin air, didn’t I?

LEWIS nods, impressed.


Okay, let’s do this!

Lewis is sitting at his desk, looking at his incomplete time machine in frustration. Suddenly, the window opens and a young boy flies in on a time machine. It’s Wilbur Robinson, who introduces himself and explains that he needs Lewis’s help to fix the future.



Whoa, who are you?



I’m Wilbur Robinson, and I need your brain-power to save the future.



The future? What do you mean?



You’re a genius inventor, and I need your help to fix a time machine. Come with me to the future and meet my family. They’re all inventors like you.

Lewis jumps up from his chair, intrigued by Wilbur’s proposal. He follows Wilbur outside to a flying time machine car, where Franny and Cornelius Robinson are waiting.



Hello, Lewis. I’m Franny Robinson, and this is my husband, Cornelius. We’re thrilled to have you on board.



Welcome to the future, Lewis. We hope you’re ready for an adventure.

The group jumps into the time machine and sets off for the future, leaving Lewis’s hometown behind. As they fly through time and space, Lewis looks excited and nervous at the same time.



Wow, this is incredible. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

The car disappears into a time portal, leaving behind a trail of smoke.



The time machine car lands at Robinson Industries, which is a massive compound filled with futuristic technology. Robots and flying cars are everywhere, and the sound of steam engines fills the air.



Whoa, this is amazing. I can’t believe the things you’ve invented.

Lewis and Wilbur are tinkering with the time machine, trying to fix it.


“This is impossible. I don’t have the right parts to make this work!”

Wilbur grins mischievously.


“Who said we have to use the right parts?”

He pulls out a few gadgets from his backpack and starts attaching them to the time machine. It starts to hum to life.


“There, that should do it. Fasten your seatbelt, Lewis, we’re going for a ride!”

Lewis hesitantly buckles himself in as Wilbur pulls the lever. The time machine whooshes to life and disappears.


Lewis looks around the interior of the time machine, wide-eyed.


“This is amazing! How does it work?”


“It’s complicated. But the key is the time circuits. Once we set them, we can travel anywhere in time.”

As they journey through time, they witness historical events, meet famous people, and witness key moments in history. However, their journey is disrupted when they encounter Bowler Hat Guy, who has been waiting for them in the future.


Bowler Hat Guy and his minions wait as the time machine appears in a flash of light.


“At last, the time machine is mine! Get them, boys!”

The Robinson family jumps out of the time machine, ready for battle.


“What’s his problem? Why does he want the time machine so badly?”


“It’s a long story. Let’s just say he’s not a fan of the future and wants to change it. But we can’t let that happen.”

A fight ensues between the Robinsons and Bowler Hat Guy’s henchmen. The Robinsons use their futuristic gadgets to defeat the bad guys, while Lewis uses his inventive prowess to help.

Lewis steps through the door of the orphanage, his hands shaking and his heart pounding in his chest. He has finally discovered the identity of his birth mother, and he can’t wait to meet her. He looks around the dimly lit room, searching for her face.

LEWIS: (speaking to the receptionist) Excuse me, can you tell me where to find my mother?

RECEPTIONIST: (coldly) I’m sorry, but we can’t give out that information.

LEWIS: Please, I just want to see her once.

RECEPTIONIST: I said no. Now leave before I call security.

Lewis turns and walks out of the orphanage, his shoulders slumped and his spirit crushed. He takes a seat on a nearby bench and buries his face in his hands.

WILBUR: (off-screen) Hey, you okay?

Lewis looks up to see Wilbur standing before him, a concerned expression on his face.

LEWIS: (sighing) No, I’m not okay. I came all this way to find my mother, only to be turned away.

WILBUR: (sympathetically) I know how you feel. But don’t worry, we’ll find a way to make this right.

Lewis looks up at Wilbur, his eyes full of hope and gratitude.

LEWIS: (smiling) Thanks, Wilbur. I couldn’t have done this without you.

Lewis and the Robinsons arrive at the science fair, with their time machine in tow. They notice Bowler Hat Guy lurking around the corner, his evil hat in hand.


(to the Robinsons)

We have to stay focused. We can’t let Bowler Hat Guy sabotage our presentation.



Don’t worry, Lewis. We’ve got this.

As they set up their booth, Bowler Hat Guy sneaks in and replaces their time machine with a malfunctioning one.



Let’s see them fix that!

As the judges approach, Lewis and the Robinsons frantically try to get their time machine to work. They press buttons, flip switches, and even kick it, but it won’t budge.



Well, it looks like the Robinsons are having some technical difficulties. Let’s move on to the next presentation.

Lewis looks defeated, until Wilbur pulls out a surprise.


(presenting a machine)

Don’t worry, judges. We have a backup invention that’ll blow your socks off.

The judges are curious, and Wilbur reveals his invention, a machine that turns any object into a delicious meal.



This is incredible!

The judges begin to sample the food, as Bowler Hat Guy looks on in disbelief.



How did they manage to pull that off?

But just as the Robinsons are about to win, Bowler Hat Guy unleashes his hat of evil, which creates a giant black hole, sucking everything into oblivion.

The Robinsons and Lewis hold on tight as they’re whisked into the black hole, unsure of what awaits them on the other side.



Looks like we’re in for a bumpy ride.

The screen fades to black as the Robinson family and Lewis hurtle through the black hole, uncertain of their fate.

Scene 6



Lewis walks towards the Robinson’s home, awed by its grandeur. He hesitates before ringing the doorbell.


(to himself)

What am I doing here?

As Lewis rings the doorbell, the door opens, revealing Franny Robinson, a middle-aged woman with wild hair and a bohemian style.



Welcome to the Robinson’s home, Lewis.


Lewis walks into the living room, where the Robinson family has gathered. The room is filled with eccentric inventions and gadgets.



This is an amazing house, and your family is… interesting, to say the least.



Yeah, we’re a bit wild, but it’s all good fun.



Wait, you’re not mad that I found out your family secret?



We’re pretty open about our past. It’s the present and future that matter most.



I suppose you’re right.

Suddenly, Wilbur jumps up from his seat.



Hey, Lewis! Want to see my time machine?



You have a time machine?



Of course! It’s how I came to find you.


Wilbur leads Lewis into the garage, where the time machine is hidden under a sheet.






It’s… it’s beautiful.



Just wait until you see what it can do.

Wilbur powers up the time machine, and the garage fills up with a blinding light.


When the light fades away, Lewis and Wilbur find themselves standing in an ancient basilica.



Where are we? When are we?



We’re in Rome, in the year 400 AD.

As Lewis looks around in disbelief, Wilbur pulls out a map.



Come on, let’s go explore!

Lewis smiles, feeling grateful for the Robinson’s welcoming him into their crazy, adventurous family.

This is incredible!


Wait till you see what’s next.

The time machine deposits them in a lush forest, where they come upon a band of medieval knights and a damsel in distress.


Looks like we landed in King Arthur’s time. Let’s go lend a hand.

As they approach, they discover the knights are arguing over who should rescue the damsel.


(whispering to Wilbur)

This is ridiculous. They’re wasting time while she’s in danger.



Excuse me, gentlemen. My friend and I will take care of this.

The knights scoff, but Lewis and Wilbur quickly come up with a plan and save the damsel.


Thank you, brave knights…and…um…who are you?


Just a couple of time travelers passing through.

The damsel looks skeptical, but they bid her farewell and continue their journey.



That was intense. What do you think is next?


(shaking his head)

I have no idea, but I’m ready for anything.


Scene 8



Lewis, Wilbur, and the Robinsons gather outside their future house, preparing for the final confrontation against Bowler Hat Guy.

WILBUR: Are you guys ready?

LEWIS: (determined) Let’s do this.

FANNY: (encouraging) You’ve got this, kids.

FRANNY: (handing out gadgets) Take these. You never know when they’ll come in handy.

The group equips themselves with various gadgets and weapons. Bowler Hat Guy and his hat of evil are approaching in the distance.

BOWLER HAT GUY: (smirks) You’re too late. My plan is already in motion.

LEWIS: (confidently) Not for long.

The heroes leap into action, dodging Bowler Hat Guy’s hat attacks and returning fire with their gadgets. Lewis and Wilbur work together to deactivate the time machine’s self-destruct mechanism.

Meanwhile, Franny and Bud battle the hat, using their martial arts prowess to keep it at bay. Grandpa Bud’s time-traveling cane comes in handy as he travels through time, gathering objects and weapons from different eras to use against the hat.

Finally, Lewis and Wilbur successfully deactivate the self-destruct mechanism, but Bowler Hat Guy is not done yet. He unleashes a massive robotic suit, powered by a stolen time machine.

LEWIS: (shocked) How did he get a hold of that?!

Wilbur and Lewis work together to build a makeshift time machine, using parts from the destroyed original. They travel through time to retrieve the stolen time machine and disable the robotic suit.

In a thrilling battle, Lewis and Wilbur manage to disable the suit, and Bowler Hat Guy is arrested by the authorities.

LEWIS: (panting) We did it.

WILBUR: (grinning) Yeah, we did.

FANNY: (proudly) I always knew you two would save the day.

FRANNY: (hugging Lewis) You’re one of the family now.

The Robinsons and Lewis celebrate their victory, with Lewis finally finding the love and acceptance he always longed for.
