Johnny 5 is a robot from the 1986 film Short Circuit and its 1988 sequel, Short Circuit 2. Johnny 5 was originally made for military use, but comes to life in a lightning-induced power surge, ultimately rejecting its destructive programming in favor of a peaceful life.

In the 1990 Muppet Babies episode "At the Movies", Baby Scooter has a conversation with Johnny 5, featuring footage from Short Circuit 2. Puppeteer Tim Blaney, who voices the character in the Short Circuit films, also voiced Johnny 5 in this episode.

In addition to Blaney, puppeteers for Short Circuit 2 included Henson veterans Rob Mills, Gord Robertson, and Trish Leeper.
