Another shot of Tekiyah!

I was just forced to watch this animated cartoon called "Tekiyah" fifteen times by my 20-month-old son who thaught it was a riot.

It is the brainchild of Ben Baruch, a direct descendent of the Vilna Gaon. ShaBot 6000 is the continuing cartoon saga of a pious Jew who purchases a robot to work as a Shabbos Goy for his household. The inquisitive robot, ShaBot, decides that he is Jewish, and is therefore unable to fulfill his duties as servant. ShaBot spends his days asking questions about Judaism, trying to find logic in a religion that sometimes DOES NOT COMPUTE.
