Doris, what's happening? I don't understand. I just wanted to ruin his future, not this!
~ The Bowler Hat Guy to DOR-15, when he realizes that she is the true mastermind.
Oh, Lewis. It's already happened...
~ DOR-15 through Franny Robinson, who is under DOR-15's control at the time.
DOR-15 (pronounced Doris) is the main antagonist of Disney's 47th full-length animated feature film Meet the Robinsons, which is based on the 1990 American children's picture book A Day with Wilbur Robinson by William Joyce.
Her original purpose was to serve as a helper, but she turned out to be a very manipulative and power-hungry entity, teaming up with Bowler Hat Guy in order to achieve her goals.
Invented by Lewis "Cornelius" Robinson as a "Helping Hat" that would assist wearers in small tasks, Doris soon rebelled against her creators and took control of the test wearer. Seeing that she was too dangerous to trust, Cornelius acted quickly to deactivate her and she was placed into a Robinsons Industries storage room for prototypes and failed inventions. But then she soon reactivated herself and escaped, meeting Cornelius' former orphanage roommate Mike "Goob" Yagoobian, who was egging and toilet papering the Robinsons Industries building as an attempt for revenge against Cornelius, whom he blamed for not getting adopted. They discovered they shared the same hatred of Cornelius and decided to team up in an attempt to destroy the future he created by stealing the second Time Machine and presenting Doris to the Invento board, though Goob (now known as Bowler Hat Guy) made the additional suggestion of stealing a younger Lewis' Memory Scanner at his school's Science Fair as a way to put his foot in the door before presenting Doris as well.
Upon their theft of the time machine, Cornelius' son Wilbur Robinson pursued the two through time, though had to contend with an altered future twice before successfully meeting with a 12-year-old Lewis in 2007, taking him to 2037 to prove his claims of being from the future and attempt to convince him the Memory Scanner was worthwhile.
Even though they stole the Memory Scanner, Goob and Doris lacked the knowledge of how to use it and sought to find Lewis in order to find out how. After being told by Goob's younger self that Lewis likes to spend a lot of time on the roof, Doris found time travel residue next to Wilbur's DNA and the duo returned to the future, where they attempted to infiltrate the Robinson house. Doris created a Mini-Doris for Goob to control, so he would not have to leave the time machine. Doris soon attempted to drop a chandelier on Lewis, only for Goob to independently go back and mind control a Tyrannosaurus rex to get Lewis, to her fury.
However, upon learning that Wilbur lied about their deal to go and see his mother in the past, he runs into Bowler Hat Guy and fixes the stolen scanner for him in exchange for seeing his mother in the past. Lewis is shocked to discover Bowler Hat Guy's identity as his Orphanage roommate Goob as well as the truth that he is Wilbur's father, Cornelius. Wilbur and Carl come to Lewis' rescue and take back the Memory Scanner. However, just before getting back to Anderson Observatory, Carl was attacked by Doris, who steals the scanner once more. Wilbur pleads Lewis to fix the Time Machine to pursue before being wiped from existence. Goob successfully passes off the memory scanner as his own and then presents the idea of "Helping Hats" to Invento. Sometime shortly afterwards, the hats begin terrorizing people and Goob is horrified about it, as he only wanted to ruin Lewis' future. But Doris, having no more use for Goob, kills or enslaves him with several hats.
Doris succeeds in her plot, altering the future into one controlled by mass-produced "Helping Hats", as well as a large mobile base called Mega-Doris, which had taken Anderson Observatory's place as well as contain the Doris-controlled Robinson family. However, Lewis managed to fix the original Time Machine and escape from Mega-Doris back to Bowler Hat Guy's presentation to Invento. Bowler Hat Guy questions Lewis' reasons for interrupting his meeting, with Lewis telling him that Doris is just using him and once she gets what she wants, she will get rid of him. As Goob is confused and mystified by this knowledge, Doris becomes enraged at Lewis' reveal of her true intentions and pulls out buzzsaws after pushing Goob aside. When she tries to kill him, Lewis declares that he will never invent Doris and thus she disintegrates and is wiped out from existence. In turn, Doris' erasing from existence caused the original future to be restored along with Wilbur.
DOR-15 simply resembles a black-and-purple bowler hat when dormant or in disguise. However, in her active form, a robot eye appears above the brim. It is usually green, but turns red when DOR-15 is angry or acting evil. Various attachments can protrude from the inside of her hat-like, most commonly spindly metallic legs and/or hand-like metal claws or weapons she can use to attack.
She's using you, Goob, and when she gets what she wants, she'll get rid of you.
~ Lewis revealing DOR-15's true intentions to Bowler Hat Guy.
At first glance, Doris seems like a criminal partner of Bowler Hat Guy, being happy to help him ruin Lewis' future by presenting his inventions as his own (including the Memory Scanner and even Doris herself). However, this is nothing more than a facade, as she is actually a manipulative terrorist who was only teaming up with him to get what she wants. Eventually, he wasn't needed anymore, so she had her Helper Hats attack him.
When she and Bowler Hat Guy go to ruin Lewis' future by presenting the Memory Scanner, the former can be seen smiling, but the camera zooms in on Doris who makes some chirps, hinting she may be sadistic as well. Doris also gets furious at some moments, such as when Bowler Hat Guy and Mini-Doris brought back a Tyrannosaurus rex from the past, and when Lewis revealed her true intentions.

DOR-15's appearance is similar to the Robot Spiders from Doctor Who.
It should be noted that if DOR-15 would have killed Lewis, she still would have been erased from existence theoretically, as Lewis invented her when he was an adult, but being killed as a kid would have precluded him from inventing DOR-15, so technically, the fate of DOR-15 was already sealed. It is most likely that DOR-15 never came to this conclusion.
Despite being referred to with female pronouns, she was voiced by the male actor Ethan Sandler.
Also, despite being wiped from existence, she makes an appearance in the end credits, though this may be non-canon.
Given her lack of a mouth, DOR-15 is one of the very few Disney Villains who doesn't have an Evil Grin of her own.
