I remember watching a movie on TV when I was a kid, so in the mid- to late-80's. I expect it was a Disney movie, as at that age the majority of movies I watched were on the "Sunday Night Disney Movie" special (on ABC, I think).
The movie featured a "teenage" kid who was a robot/android, built by his "father." The kid looked fully human. I seem to recall that when his batteries were running low, he spoke, and likely moved slowly.
The only scene I recall involved him asking a stranger (perhaps after ringing their front door bell?) if he could use their outlet, and they were confused, and showed him to the bathroom.
