I Was A Preschool Dropout is the second half of the eighth episode of My Life as a Teenage Robot.


Having been found to have only been activated for five years, the school system declares that Jenny has to be moved into a grade level that matches her "age". Now Jenny finds herself in a new situation... kindergarten.


Ms. Binky: Jenny, you can join Amber's group.

Jenny: So, what are we making believe?
Amber: We're playing house. I'm the mommy and Kevin is the daddy. Gerald can be the smelly uncle and Alex can be the pool boy.
Jenny: And who should I be?
Amber: You, you can be the dog.
Jenny: I'm not gonna be the dog.
Alex: And I'm not gonna be the pool boy. I'll be the robot! Doot Doot Danger Danger.
Jenny: Hey, if anyone should be the robot it should be me!
Amber: How can you be the robot if you're the doggy?
Jenny: I actually am a robot!
Alex: I am an actual robot. Zoot Zoot Rfft Rfft Rfbt Rfbt.
Jenny: But, but, but? I am the Robot!
Alex: I am the robot, I am the robot!
Kids: You are the robot, You are the robot!
Jenny: But, but, but?
Ms. Binky: You are the robot, You are the robot!
Jenny: But, but, but, but? [Gerald laughs the robot]
Jenny: But, but? I am the robot!
Kids: You are the robot zoot zoot, You are the robot zoot zoot, You are the robot zoot zoot!
Jenny: This is so stupid! [The Kids gasps and says the s word]
Amber: She said the 'S' Word! [Alex cried out]
Ms. Binky: That's a time out, young lady! Come with me!
Brad: (singing) A-minky-minky-minky-minky-minky-minky-minky-minky-MOMO! The Minky Momo is an attitude, the Minky Momo is a mellow mood. You're Momo when you're drinkin' lemonade, you're Momo soakin' in a marinade. I know you're Minky, 'cause I'm Momo, too. And so I know what you're goin' through. But there's no mo' Momo whenever I ... get ... close ... to ... you! (stops singing) Man, I hate that song!
Jenny: What's that noise coming out of your throat? Are you sick or something?
Jenny: This ... is ... so ... STUPID!!! (everyone gasps)
Amber: She said the s-word!
Kindergarten Deliverer: Don't worry, we're taking you to a place with all the cookies you can eat!
Jenny: ...But I don't eat.
Jenny: Me? I'm a high school student. A nap in the middle of the day sounds ... pretty good.


  • In "I Was a Preschool Dropout," we learn that the time period of My Life as a Teenage Robot is approximately 2130.
  • In "I Was a Preschool Dropout" Jenny said that she didn't remember Superbowl C (100 in Roman Numerals). Assuming since she was 5 years old, Superbowl C was probably at least 6 years ago because Brad mentioned it, therefore making this show having to take place after 2070 since the year 2003 has Superbowl XXXVIII (38 in Roman Numerals).
  • The title of the episode states that Jenny was sent back to preschool, when in fact she was sent to kindergarten.
  • When Alex said "I am the robot". He is doing the 'robot', a very old dance imitating a robot's movement.
  • When Brad sings the song "Minky Momo" it was an anime in the 1980's about a young girl with magic powers (Mahou no Princess Minky Momo). It was a retelling of the Japanese fairy tale Momotaro. In the story, a boy born from a peach becomes a small village's only hope against oni (ogre-like monsters) and his three sidekicks are a dog, a pheasant and a monkey. Those animals became the girl's pets in the show.
