In the mid 1980s designer Douglass Grimmett and photographer Chuck Carlton found success with a series of toy robot-themed wall calendars. Basing their monthly images on the classic tin or plastic toy robots from the 1950s and 1960s, the pair placed their robots in fantastic science fiction or alternate reality situations.
