As you can tell, this article is a ditched stub. You can help the Spy Kids Wiki by expanding this article.

Carmenita and Junito are robot doppelgangers of Carmen and Juni Cortez. They were created by Fegan Floop and Alexander Minion as part of Mr. Lisp's robot army of Spy Kids to take over the world. They were later reprogrammed and used as Floop's characters on his show, Floop's Fooglies.


When the robot doppelgängers first appear, they are shown to be wearing the gray jumpsuits that are the robot children's attire, and they also have necklaces that have their limited edition Spy Kid number on it, revealing to their real counterparts that they are two of the 500 robot children army created for Mr. Lisp by both Floop and Minion. Both the robot and real Carmen have the same hairstyle. However, later during the fight scene in Floop's Castle, the real Carmen wears a red headband over her hair while Carmenita doesn't. Both the real and robot Juni have the same red-auburn curly hair with no changes like the robot and real Carmens. When they are reprogrammed they are later shown to be wearing civilian clothing such as at the end of the first film they could be seen wearing purple striped hoodies with red vests over them.

In the sequel, Carmenita wears a long sleeve orange and red shirt with a flower design on the front and has jeans and white and brown (sketchers like) skating shoes. Junito wears a red long sleeve shirt and a white and black striped shirt with khaki pants and black (sketchers like) shoes like his Robot sister. The rolled up cuffs of his pants has a turquoise color on it. Instead of wearing Spy Watches on their wrists like their real life counterparts, Carmenita wears a bracelet on her right wrist and Junito wears a silver watch on his right wrist.


Spy Kids[]

In Spy Kids, they are sent to find the real Carmen and Juni to recover the Third Brain for Floop so that he can make the Robot children more intelligent for Lisp. They track the Cortez siblings to San Diablo at a park playground where the Cortez kids are trying to track down their missing parents.

Following an argument over whether or not they should keep the brain or destroy it and when Juni tried to tell to Carmen that Ms. Gradenko gave her a Tracking Bracelet, Carmen walks away from Juni and approaches a water fountain to take a drink from where she realizes too late he was right and throws away the bracelet, stating her hatred toward the device. Taking advantage of this, Robot Juni approaches Carmen while she's drinking from the fountain. Thinking its the real Juni, Carmen tells him that she just ditched him, questions the robot's clothing, tells him that they are no longer relatives and asks him to leave. Robot Juni speaks in gibberish and Carmen assumes that Juni is getting stupider by the minute. Suddenly, Carmen sees the robot doppelganger of herself grabbing the real Juni and lifting him up off the ground. Before she could go over to stop her, the robot Juni grabs Carmen's arm and bends it. She punches him in the face and nearly breaks her knuckles. She tries again for another punch only to have it blocked and turned around while being held. Carmen yells for Juni to destroy the brain. Juni hears Carmen's instruction but before he could react, Robot Carmen throws Juni on the merry-go-round and spins it faster while he's on it. The real Carmen turns around, grabs the Robot Juni and headbutts it, giving herself a painful head injury, then she stares at the screen for a second before causing herself to lose consciousness while the Robot Juni walks away. Juni, still on the merry-go-round, pulls out the brain and tries to destroy it as the Robot Carmen approaches him and tries steal it from him. She manages to steal it but Juni responds by ripping off her necklace. As Carmen regains consciousness, the Robot doppelgängers put on shades and fly away using their integrated rocket booster shoes. This prompts a child to yell " I WANT SHOES LIKE THAT!!!" in Spanish, only to be taken away by his dad. Carmen and Juni, after recovering from their fight with the doppelgängers, realize that there will be hundreds of robots flying around and that they are building an army.

The Robot Doppelgängers manage to return to Floop's Castle and give the third brain to Floop. When Minion turns on Floop (as Floop only cares about his show) and prepares to do Lisp's evildoing, he orders the Robot Carmen and Juni to imprison Floop in the Virtual Room where the show is usually filmed, until he is freed by Juni, thanks to his Electroshock Gumballs.

Later, after Floop frees Gregorio and Ingrid and turns Minion's own mutating machine on him, they prepare to stop Lisp, but the Robot doppelgangers approach Gregorio and Ingrid, grab them and tie them up with chains. Carmen and Juni attempt to save their parents again only to have them fly out of the hallway and into the main room.

The doppelgängers then come out and confront the Cortez kids. Juni warns Carmen that they are stronger and smarter now, and Carmen adds that so are they. She attempts to scare them and they look at each other and run away. Only for them to flip over on the walls and go into a fighting pose. A shocked Carmen does her famous line "Oh Shittake mushrooms" and she and Juni begin to back away in fear. They eventually calm down and approach their doppelgangers. After a brief standoff, another fight breaks out. Carmen uses her grappling gadget to have Robot Juni stuck on the ceiling while the Robot Carmen picks up the real Juni and spins him around as the real Carmen ducks to avoid a hit. Then Robot Carmen throws Juni across the hallway where he bellyslides on the floor, screaming. Carmen briefly looks at her Robot doppelganger in confusion as Robot Juni drops from the ceiling behind Carmen. Juni runs towards Robot Carmen only to get knocked to the floor again as his robot doppelgänger holds down the real Carmen by twisting her arm behind her back. The Robot Carmen torments Juni by telling him that his parents were so easy to capture and that he's not any better. She calls him "poor little Juni, defenseless and weak". She then punches the wall and says "your a worthless little squirt".

Carmen while being held down by Robot Juni, begins to stand up for her brother by telling him he's not worthless reminding him of that he figure out how he got them there, reforming Floop, speaking to the Fooglies and rescuing their parents. She yells, "You're strong Juni!! You're strong!" But Juni attempts to punch a wall and nearly breaks his knuckles, to which Carmen tells him he's not that strong. Robot Carmen grabs Juni on the chest and picks him up saying "puny little Juni, its all over", suddenly Juni laughs and giggles in front of the doppelganger of Carmen and drops a wrapper to his Electroshock Gumballs in her hands. He then spits it out at her nose. This electrocutes her, causing to her let go of Juni. After Robot Carmen removes it from her nose, the real Carmen recovers and subdues Robot Juni as both of the Cortez siblings throw their doppelgangers against the wall. Carmen and Juni then use party-string-like instant cement to hold them against the wall, but only temporarily. As the doppelgängers break free of the cement, the real Carmen and Juni immediately decide to run away to join their parents for the final fight against Lisp and his army.

In the climax of the film, as the Cortez family prepare to fight the robot children in the main room and just after Machete busts through the stained glass window and joins the fight, the doppelgängers of Carmen and Juni come out to the front, angrily staring at their counterparts. Soon Floop reprograms the robot children causing them to happily play by tossing Minion, Gradenko, and Lisp in the air since as Minion explains that they have minds of their own now.

At the end the doppelgängers of Carmen and Juni are used on Floop's Fooglies as his new cast along with Minion, while the rest of the robot children are performing good deeds such as saving lives after their reprogramming.

Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams[]

In Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, the doppelgängers of Carmen and Juni are briefly seen skating in Floop's Castle as their counterparts call Floop so they can talk to Minion. Floop briefly puts them on the phone to say "hello" to their counterparts. As they skate away, the Robot Juni hits a wall.




  • Although the robot children are shown in the third film, Carmenita and Junito aren't shown for unknown reasons. However, they may have participated, but offscreen.
  • They aren't given their respective names until the end of the film. As a result, they're unnamed during the middle and the end sections of the film.
  • Since they're both portrayed by Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara respectively, who also portray their human counterparts, the latter's real-life brother, Evan Sabara, also plays a member of the robot children.
