Creepy Crawlies was a multibot which competed in the second season of BattleBots on ABC. It was created by a group of students from the University of Brighton, led by student Kelly Smith (not the one that built Psychotron) and assisted by Ian Watts of Bigger Brother, Little Sister, and Bull Dog fame. The robot is made up of 5 identical parts (named Fearwig, Cogroach, Buzzbot, Ladybite and Stag), each designed to look like an insect and equipped with a small horizontal crusher which could also move up and down. Unfortunately, the multibot was destroyed by Son of Whyachi early in the tournament.
Robot History Edit
Creepy Crawlies was one of twelve robots which was forced to compete in three-way melees in order to determine the final four robots of the bracket. In its match it was placed against Son of Whyachi and UltraViolent. Unfortunately, its swarm-style tactics never worked well as Son of Whyachi annihilated all but one of the robots in the rumble along with UltraViolent, which never moved, meaning that Son of Whyachi went through to the field of 48 after a devastating battle.
The Creepy Crawlies have all since been repaired and now feature plows in place of the pincers as they sit on display at Ian Watts' office.
