Perfect Kid is the 19th episode of Uncle Grandpa season 1, and the 19th overall episode of the series. There is a guest appearance by former NBA basketball player Shaquille O'Neal in the episode.
Uncle Grandpa turns Austin into a robot so he can be perfect.
The episode starts off with Austin attempting to perform chore tasks. Unfortunately, he was unsuccessful in his endeavor to do so. Uncle Grandpa comes crashing through Austin's window thinking it is a sandwich restaurant. He realizes then that it isn't, but stays anyways to help Austin. Austin complains to Uncle Grandpa that he can't do anything right and would like to be perfect. Uncle Grandpa figured the best solution for that would be to turn Austin into a robot.
Uncle Grandpa turns Austin into a robot called Austin 2.0 who is a robot fixated on perfection. Unfortunately for Uncle Grandpa, this fixation on perfection backfired. Austin 2.0 wanted to destroy Uncle Grandpa for being imperfect. After a crazy fight and several crazy chases, Uncle Grandpa ends up at a comedy club called "The HaHa Club". Uncle Grandpa meets up with Shaquille O'Neal who helps him fight Austin 2.0. Unfortunately for both Uncle Grandpa and Shaquille, Austin 2.0 is able to defeat them. Uncle Grandpa asks Austin 2.0 for a tuna sandwich before Austin 2.0 sets out to destroy him.
Austin 2.0 agrees, claiming to construct the most perfect tuna fish sandwich. When Uncle Grandpa tastes this sandwich, he tells Austin 2.0 that it isn't all that great. This freaks Austin 2.0 out and causes him to blow up and turn back into Austin. Austin thanks Uncle Grandpa for teaching him a lesson about perfection, being yourself, and working hard. Uncle Grandpa ends the episode by going on the HaHa Club's stage and slamming some jokes, stolen from Shaq.
