Trons (plural) have absolutely nothing to do with Tron (singular)
Are these “Robot Clowns That Make You Laugh”? Or are they things that if they were flesh and blood beings you’d take out back behind the woodshed to put them out of their misery? I’m betting on the latter. They’re reminiscent of the robot that Homer Simpson made and abandoned, the one that he accidentally pulled from behind a box in the garage one day and it pleaded “FATHER, GIVE ME LEGS!”
That they “hop” seems a bit of a stretch. “Limp” would be more accurate. And there’s nary a Bruce Boxleitner to be found.
