Mr. Hublot is a man who lives in a tiny apartment located in a crowded steampunk city. He wears several layers of eye wear and has an odometer-like counter in his forehead which runs forward and backward. Mr. Hublot also displays several OCD symptoms, such as turning the lights on and off several times before leaving the living room and meticulously straightening the pictures on his wall. Mr. Hublot sees a tiny puppy-like robot shivering in a box. When the box is taken away for garbage disposal, Mr. Hublot takes the robot to his house. The robot gets bigger and bigger and is soon much bigger than Mr. Hublot. After the creature causes extensive damage to the apartment, Mr. Hublot appears to attack the creature with a screw driver.
