Orphaned American teen Joseph Carter Jones, aka Joey, lives with his grandmother in Central City, Los Angeles. When he's not in class you can generally find him working diligently at a diner to help make ends meet at home. Joey's a bit scrawny for his age. He's not athletic or much of a bookworm - in fact, he doesn't fit in anywhere. Upon hearing of a new toy robot called the Heybo, Joey becomes set on the idea that acquiring one will change his for the better.
