Sir Max proposed the idea to create a game where robots try to steal gag barrels while toons try to stop them by throwing pies. When he asked the Toon Council, they turned him down and scrapped the idea.
On his way to go find "public land" to build his trolley game on, a Loony Labs scientist stops him and offers to build him the robots needed for the game. Once finished, Max returned to the Toon Council and showed them the finished project, which they accepted and added to the trolley, but would remove it if it got bad reviews.
The objective of the game is to use pies to protect four gag barrels in the center of the arena from robots until the time runs out. If toons lose all of the barrels, they lose. If they save at least one barrel, they win and receive thirty jellybeans. Robots chase after toons as well as try to steal the barrels. If caught, toons will be launched in the air, similar to the Maze Game.

- Robot Thief is a version of Cog Thief, which was implemented in Toontown Online.
- This game was released on November 10, 2013.
- The arena was initially supposed to be a Tag Game Arena in Toontown Online for Daisy Gardens but Disney scrapped this idea.
- In Cog Thief, numbers on the barrels would indicate how many jellybeans it was worth. Robot Thief does not use this.
- Robot Thief, in comparison to the original Cog Thief, is now in a third-person point of view rather than a top-down view.
- There are now obstacles, although toons can go through them.
- Toons now use the "Delete" or "Alt" key to throw a pie, rather than the "Ctrl" key. This is similar to the VP battle gameplay.
