I remember seeing a sci fi movie in the 80s. It was set on a space station. One of the main characters was a levitating squat droid with spheres for feet (which probably powered his levitation), and he was about the size of 2 basket balls. He had cute eyes (white squares with black pupils).

There was an enemy droid. It was much larger, and maroon in colour, with menacing eyes.

Unfortunately I can't remember much more than this.

Can you recall what the name of this movie is?

Sounds like Disney's The Black Hole

Its science fiction - set on a very large spaceship 'moored' on the edge of a black hole.

The squat droid was V.I.N.C.E.N.T, the maroon colored enemy droid was Maximillian. Your descriptions of both are spot on - even down to the size, eyes and spherical feet.



  • @Steve - you're welcome - I saw this at the movie theatre when I was quite young. Probably a terrible movie but I enjoyed it at the time. – iandotkelly Oct 24 '14 at 4:51
