The Case of the Sinister Robot is a comic story drawn by Tony Strobl. It features Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Shamrock Bones, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Chief O'Hara, and, in their first appearances, the Mayor of Mouseton, X - Y + 2, 0 = 4X, X -'s Robot Scouts and his other Junk Robots.
Strange events wrack Mouseton as all machinery goes haywire — cars run backwards, washing-machines broadcast foreign news like television sets, and even gravity itself seems to have a bad case of the hiccups. Mickey Mouse investigates alongside Goofy and Shamrock Bones. It seems the key to the mystery resides in the strange cloaked men seen wandering around town, unfazed by the extraordinary goings-on — and in the one word Bones cranked out of his Crime-o-Graphic computer before it too stopped working, “J•U•N•K”!
