As an ambitious primary student at Funkeystown, the young Dr. Tinker created the first Sprocket as an entry into his school science contest.
Designed to help the Boggle with garbage duties, Dr. Tinker bragged to the contest judges that, “his design would turn waste material into a much more delicious food then that “bland Boggle Butter!” however, when he turned on, rather than producing something delicious, Sprocket only wanted to dance. While their herky-jerky groove was impressive in its own right, dr. tinker had no time for a Sprocket when they danced.
While Dr. Tinker may not have liked it, the kids in Funkeystown loved to dance like Sprocket! Sprocket’s dance, the robot, as it became known, was all the craze. Sprocket’s popularity grew, but like all fads, one day the kids no longer wanted to do the dance. Since he was kind of a one dance Funkey, he wandered off and was not heard of again.
Now, the Sprocket, dancing robots, are a reoccurring nightmare for most Funkeys kid. As they are reminded of just how silly they really looked!
