Need help with character animation

I am making a short film with a small robot as the main character. I rigged it, and tied everything to a central circle underneath it as a main controller. But for some reason, when I try to animate the robot, and I drag it to where it should be, it appears to some other place not at all where I wad wanting it. I do not know what it wrong, so any help would be appappreciated. Thanks.

Hey Caleb, from your description it could be a number of issues. If you could either describe the problem more concisely or send in your blender file it would definitely help solve this.

But the first thing that comes to mind is that there might be a keyframe somewhere so that anytime you move it and then scroll on your timeline, the robot snaps back into place

I am a new user, and cannot upload the file, but I will look through the membranes.
