Cornelius Lewis Robinson, changed from Lewis Anthonio, the future father of Wilbur, is the While meeting Franny in her music room (and helping the Frog Band keeping him up all night and grew so furious over it that he wanted revenge. Francesca "Franny" Robinson (née Framagucci) is the mother of Wilbur Robinson, wife of Lewis family, and one of the major characters of Disney's feature film Meet the Robinsons. Franny To teach frogs to sing and to help Lewis out. Young Franny with her future son Wilbur from Disney's "Meet the Robinsons". .

In all honesty, Lewis found this fascinating and a bit refreshing, however as Chairman of the Board, he couldn't just give out funds to every pretty face asking for cash. He needed concrete evidence that the project could be achieved, finished, and most importantly, become successful in the business world. For example, if he approved a loan of fifty million dollars to an inventor who claimed he could make flying cars, which Lewis was in fact in the process of inventing, and that inventor wasted all the money and nothing came out of it, Lewis would catch the blame.
But on the other side of the coin, if they did invent it, and the concept wasn't taken and flying cars never sold, then there was no profit either. To put it lightly, singing amphibians just didn't sound like an investment sound idea. Framagucci, the Board has decided that your invention cannot possibly be achieved, therefore, we have no choice but to refuse to give you funding," Lewis said. He watched the raven haired girl grab her glass box full of frogs, her intricate display with all kinds of charts, and her coat before storming out of the meeting room.
Cornelius sighed, perhaps she would be gone for good this time. An alternate version of one scene, included on the DVD, has Bowler Hat Guy be the one to wake up his younger self at the baseball game. He then dissolves away into the aether, just as Wilbur Robinson did when the past was altered so that he would never be born. Surely he wouldn't literally cease to exist just because he didn't become a bitter, twisted, and extremely unhygienic Dastardly Whiplash character.
Why didn't he just transform to reflect the adulthood he would have achieved without the grudge against Lewis? Maybe that's why they decided not to use that version of the scene Maybe this "aether dissolution" isn't of the same kind, meaning only that he wouldn't be there, as he wouldn't be trying to foil Lewis' life since his life wasn't ruined after all DORIS, on the other hand, probably would.
Mike Yagoobian's corrected future self is somewhere else in the future, doing his business, probably playing baseball. Yeah, that's what I figured. It's just a little disturbing that they chose to represent both alterations in the same way. It's possible that they were the same type of alteration, and Wilbur was in fact born but was off doing his business as a slave to the hat.
Let's just state the contradiction simply: From the first appearance of Wilbur onward, the entire film happened because Bowler Hat Guy stole the time machine at Doris' suggestion.
By undoing both Doris' and Bowler Hat Guy's existence presumably Goob grows up to be a completely different person as a result of Lewis waking him up in time for the winning catchLewis should have undone the entire plot of the film.
Of course, the only reason Lewis thought to wake Goob up was because of Bowler Hat Guy's Start of Darknessso the logical conclusion is a paradox: Okay, so in the first ten minutes of the film, Goob can be heard saying that his little league team has "lost every game. This seems like a pretty trifling mistake and that this troper should probably just relax, until you remember that dwelling on that one catch is what causes him to grow up the way he does. Maybe the Dinos managed to start winning after that line of Goob's.
But still, dwelling on that one catch though Well, Goob is rather imbalanced. Perhaps he's just an Unreliable Narrator. Granted the kids got mad at him for falling asleep during a game, but there's no reason to believe they genuinely hated him, especially after the following line, and his non-sequiturs when he grows up. Hi Goob, what up? Hey Goob, you wanna hang out?
They all hated me. He actually says "we've been doing better recently" or something to that effect Did anyone pay attention to the movie? In his first appearance Goob had bags under his eyes. Then there is the invention montage. Goob has most likely been kept up every single night since he was bunked with Lewis. He misses the baseball catch; but it's on the same day that Lewis patents an invention that makes him rich and gets adopted. How did the Bowler Hat Guy get that huge dinosaur in his comparatively small time machine?
The front seats push forward, of course. Some feature on the machine that allows for expansion of the bubble the machine generates to travel the timestream? Quite possibly robotic, or maybe gene spliced. I wouldn't exactly put it beyond Lewis's capabilities to figure out how to do either. Animals just seemed to tame down quickly and get Amplified Animal Aptitude on the Robinson estate. Once Tiny the Tyrannosaur's mind-control hat was knocked off, for example, he fell into line almost immediately, rather then, well, continuing the sort of rampage you'd expect of a wild tyrannosaur.
It would also nicely explain Franny's frogs. Ok I can understand some of the family writing off the similarity of Lewis and Cornelius but really, you expect me to believe you can fool his wife who knew him at 12 on top of all that with a hat?
It helps that his voice would sound different at that age but come on, she ignores all of it up till the hair which is the easiest to write off as coincidence?
Well, his face is considerably different when he's older. If she wasn't paying a whole lot of attention, I can see her not noticing. The hair, however, is really a striking similarity. I've always thought the family knew what was going on all the time Cornelius might've told them earlier but were just acting. I think it's more surprising Lewis's parents never noticed.
But even if they thought he reminded them of Cornelius, it would probably never occur to them their year-old son had somehow traveled to the future. Why does Cornelius need reminding who's at fault for the time machines being gone?
Hell, he lived the reason. When he comes back, the first thing he does is freak out about the time machines being gone.
Even after he sees himself, he looks in a explain-this-now way at Wilbur. Why didn't he slap his forehead and go 'oh my gosh, so it was this business trip! Cornelius thought that the time machines were stolen. After all, it's been 30 years and seeing the future, a lot has happened since. I don't think you'd go "oh right, this is when that thing happened 30 years ago" when you see you time machines gone.
My first assumption would be "oh my god, the time machines have been stolen!!!! When he comes outside, he sees what happened and his wife explains. And it doesn't seem a explain-this-now face but more a you-wrecked-the-time-machine-and-had-me-repair-it face to me. After all, we know Wilbur is going to be in a lot of trouble Cornelius also told his younger self that what he had seen of the future he could only achieve if he made the right decisions, suggesting maybe a fluid timeline or even timeline crossover.
By that I mean Cornelius wasn't the same Lewis we've seen through the movie, but rather a similar one further down a neighboring timeline and would not have had any recollection of the events of the movie, and told Lewis that he had to build his own future and that nothing is set in stone before sending him off back to his own timeline where he would grow up and mostly likely build a future very similar to that which he'd seen.
Also, so, Calvin's Dad was right? 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. 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? 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.
Franny, before heading into the house, tells Wilbur that he's grounded until he dies. When Doris and the evil Bowler Hat Guy, who is really Michael Yagoobian when he was a kid, changes reality, Franny and the rest of the family are controlled as Doris's slaves and chase him.
Later, when Lewis sets everything right, Franny is concerned about him, asking if he is hurt or if he has any broken bones. Lewis tells her that he's fine and feels a lot better than he has in a long time. When Cornelius, who is in reality future Lewis, arrives home from his business trip, he is shocked to see his younger self there, and he turns to his family questionably.
At first, it seems like she doesn't have an answer, but she catches Wilbur when he tries to get away, indicating that he has everything to do with it. Cornelius understands completely, while an upset Wilbur says "ratted out by the old lady. Before Lewis leaves to go back to his own timeline, Franny gives him some advice for the future: Cornelius reassures Lewis this is true, and when Lewis arrives back at the science fair, he meets a young Franny. She tells him that she believes that frogs have more musical abilities than people, but that people think she's crazy and demands to know if he thinks she's crazy too, as she takes on an aggressive stance.
However Lewis, remembering what he saw in the future and future Franny's advice to him before he left, tells her that he thinks she's right, endearing her to him.
