so much attention too just a gimmick? you actually care for that thing, who tries but just fails cause of poor programming or so...why making that effort throughout the movie, i mean showing a relationship between those two. he is actually very replacable and they could have added some other gags.
The reason Tony loves Dum-E so much is because he was the very first bot Tony created when he was a kid. Naturally he's attached to the clumsy little guy. RDJ said that when he saw the bots on set and found out how ditsy they were, he made them his/Tony's friends. They're great for him to play against in scenes where Tony is alone in his workshop.
