Well it's a long pitiful story, about a young boy with a dream. We lost by one run because of me. Goob wakes up and finds himself surrounded by his teammates as they began to beat him up Baseball kid: Goob angrily telling his day at the orphanage to many parents: If I hadn't fallen asleep, I would have caught the ball!
And we would have won!!
For some reason, no one wanted to adopt me. Reporter over radio as Goob listens: Whiz kid Cornelius Robinson graduates from college at age 14 - This year's Nobel Prize goes to a young Cornelius Robinson Goob walks through the hallway as student greet him but was too angry to notice Student 1: Cool binder Hey Goob, want to come over to my house today? They all hated me. Eventually, they closed down the orphanage and everyone left Years go by as Goob listens on the radio of Lewis' successes and comes to a realization.

Then, just as I was on the brink of destroying Robinson Industries, I met 'her'. We retreated to our villainous lair, where Doris spun a tale of deception and woe.

On a stormy night, Goob and Doris arrive at Lewis' home with Doris putting her night vision goggles, spying on Wilbur Franny: Wilbur, make sure you shut that door tight, or else the alarm won't engage. Wilbur leaves without closing the door all the way I went to your house, snuck in the garage, and stole the time machine. All thanks to that pointy-haired little kid who forgot to lock the garage door.

Eventually they closed down the orphanage and everyone left Robinson reaches out to Cornielus Robinson is now Now here's another amazing Pictures of the past are color pictures of a black and white or in this case, sepia-toned time?
Look how much more vibrant Lewis and Wilbur are compared to the surroundings. Everything else is brown.
Meet the Robinsons / Headscratchers - TV Tropes
It was very rainy that day, and all we saw in comparison was the clothing of the mother and the orphanage, neither of which were likely to be super-vibrant. Lewis and Wilbur were under a blue light, while the mother was under a yellow one. How come the Robinsons still had that Dinosaur as a pet presumably at the end, even though it was Doris and Bowler hat guy that went to get it, which of course didn't happen as Lewis uninvented Doris and Bowler hat guy never sought revenge?
They don't really know when, exactly, Bowler Hat Guy pulled the T Rex out of the time stream, and, putting him back in at the wrong time could, possibly, destroy the time stream, and lead to Lewis not existing, for instance.
And, er, it seems the presence of Lewis is enough to create a brief bubble around himself and his family, and occasionally, say, Bowler Hat Guy, so he can see the future Dor had planned for them. So, Lewis being there for the return of the time stream caused the T Rex to still be there when the family returned, as they'd apparently adopted it after the attack.
Lewis seemed to really like the idea of having a pet dinosaur. In the new timeline he decided to get one. Why do we still refer to him as 'Bowler Hat Guy'?

Why do we keep tiptoeing around the issue? Maybe because it's either Bowler Hat Guy as he was known for most of the movie or Future! Goob which is more outright spoilericious than everything else here. It's one of the more unexpected twists in recent film history.
This troper remembers the first time he saw the movie and during The Reveal thought, " What?Goob
How do you go from being someone like Goob to being somebody like Bowler Hat Guy? This makes no sense whatsoever. Cornelius and the ending. Why in the name of all that's loving would Lewis change his name so easily?
Sure, it was to keep a shocking revelation Lewis is the patriarch of a large family and the smartest mind on Earthbut really. I can think of two scenarios that would be more plausible Lewis being a teacher-mentor to Cornelius, no Lewis means no Robinson Family Future. And Lewis being Cornelius' or Franny's father; because seriously, why in God's name would Lewis change the name he's had for 12 years for no apparent reason.
And the ending just seemed like one giant Deus ex Machina after another: What does Walt Disney have to do anything with? Yes, they used part of his quote, but they weren't worshiping him or telling people to. They use the "Keep moving forward" theme and I think quote on Phineas and Ferb but so far I've seen no one who's said something along the lines of what you wrote. Talk about an over-reaction And who said Lewis was the one who changed his own name?
The ending implies that it was his new parents that changed his name, not Lewis himself. Once they signed the adoption papers it would be well within their power to. Adoptive parents HAVE changed the names of the children they adopt, you know. I'm assuming that the frog girl Young! Franny didn't fall for him all at once.
It probably happened while they were in high school or something. Plus it's fairly common though foolish at a young age to become mildly infatuated with someone you barely know. Heck it happened to This Troper once in the 10th grade.
But anyway, my point is that their relationship probably started small and then deepened over time. Keep in mind that Lewis is the only one at this point who knows that they'll end up getting married.
Who's to say his name isn't actually Cornelius? I defy you to come up with a better nickname for Cornelius than Lewis. And it's perfectly likely that he did keep in touch, as emotionally affected as he was over Goob. Plus his departure was very light and not particularly emotional, so it probably wasn't final. He doesn't just get to live there like it's a family, even if emotionally it is. This just really bugs the crap outta me: Wilbur obviously comes from the best possible future, where Lewis never gave up on his inventions, learned from mistakes, and is essentially the new Albert Einstein.
Why did Wilbur need to go back in time over a decade-and-a-half, when he could have just as easily gone back an hour and just locked the garage?! Maybe the time machine can't go back hours, just years.
Or maybe it was because too much damage had already been done to the timeline. Probably should just go with "he's stupid". Really, this troper got the feeling that Wilbur was pretty much that dumb kid who screwed up and made an even bigger mess trying to fix it, completely oblivious to the far easier solutions available.
I think it's because it wouldn't have worked anyway. The time-machine exists outside of time. Because it was already taken in the future, going back to prevent it from being taken is impossible, because it no longer exists in just that time.
It's now in a different time as well. Lewis has to do something before Bowler Hat Guy can sign, but he fails, and due to this the future spontaneously switches halfway through, leading you to wonder how Bowler Hat Guy got in a position to sign in the first place as well!
The only thing I can think of is a split timeline, one good and one bad, and once the good one is carried out, they travel back and carry on with the bad one. But there's no indication of anything like that! It seems to switch to a past, the signing period, that has the seemingly uncaused?
Doris in it, as well as a time-transplanted Bowler Hat Guy. Doris brings about the bad future. When Lewis first sees the time machine, he says something like: Wow, I never thought time machines would be invented in my lifetime! Only that wouldn't ever make sense for anyone to say.
Young Goob catches the ball
First, he doesn't know that Wilbur is from his lifetime. Second, if a time machine is invented in anyone's lifetime, it can travel to yours, making the point moot. He's probably just blurting out something, caught up in the awe of the moment, and not choosing his words carefully. He is twelve, after all. Also he might have seen Wilbur punch in the destination date and simply did the math.
Lewis said admittedly, I've seen the Dutch version: So you could see it as "I never thought anyone with a time machine would want to go to the early 21st century! The full line is "I never thought time travel could be possible in my lifetime, and here it is right in front of me". Lewis is essentially just saying "I never thought I would get to experience time-travel". It's basically the same as anyone getting to experience something they never thought they would.
If Doris could control people's minds, why didn't she just take over Goob and do everything herself? Maybe she's a sadist and wanted to watch him squirm. Also, it's very suspicious, and unnatural looking, even people in the past would suspect something, also, Goob needed to talk at his presentation, if Doris took him over earlier, he would freak out when she came off, but he'd be weird, especially with that hat over his eyes.
And I just realized that if they figured out that Helping Hats could control people Where are the Reapers to correct this paradox?! They got unmade when the Universe went foom and never got slotted back in when it was remade. If the timelines had split then these aren't quite the same Lewis' anymore. One was from one universe and the other was from the other one it works with Trunks in Dragon Ball Z.
How come no one has mentioned the fact that Lewis's mother abandons him and suddenly takes him back because she finds out who he is?
It is never mentioned why she abandoned him, and if she had a valid reason, like not being able to care for a child, then she shouldn't be allowed to take him back.
When did that happen? No, the point is that it's not his real mother and father who adopt him again.
But anyway, if it had been really her, there could have been a good reason.
