Hedonismbot is a robot who has the concept of hedonism written right into his programming. He is extremely fond of food, wine, opera, vomiting and sex orgies, among other things, and he apologizes for nothing.

Biography[edit]

In 3003, Hedonismbot attended the Big Robot Party (4ACV08). In 3004, he attended the Calculon-Coilette wedding (4ACV13), and asked Fry to write an opera (4ACV18). In 3007, he saw the professor's doomsday devices (BBS). In 3008, he was present at the League of Robots when Bender entered the league (TBWABB). In 3009, he attended the Violet Dwarf Star Implosion (ITWGY). In 3010, he supported Proposition ∞ (6ACV04), he made a big party to celebrate his wedding to a house (6ACV07), saw Amy and Kif at the Hip Joint (6ACV08), and attended the 100th Delivery Party (6ACV12). In 3014, he was with the Planet Express Crew and the Simpsons during "the end of the world" (SABF16).

Character description[edit]

Hedonismbot's behaviour resembles that of a rich decadent Roman noble of ancient times, and he is a great patron of the opera with his very own box in the Metropolitan House of Opera - he even commissioned Fry to write an opera in which Fry would perform the Holophonor (4ACV18).

Hedonismbot also enjoys a number of unconventional hedonistic pleasures, including being covered in chocolate icing, sex orgies and robosexuality.

Hedonismbot was to be married to a house in the suburbs in July of 3010, but the night before, he held a bachelor party where, due to a nuclear powered stripper malfuctioning, he was the only survivor. It is unclear if he was married or not, but as evidenced by a party in September, his hedonistic ways of promiscuity has not changed.

In the season three commentary, Matt Groening points out the importance of the name being hedonism bot and not hedonist bot - he is not only hedonist, he is the actual personification of hedonism.

In 3013, Leela called him a senator (7ACV21).

Trivia[edit]

  • Hedonism is the philosophy that self pleasure is happiness and therefore the most important pursuit.
  • Hedonismbot is one of the very few robots designed without square pupils. However, there was one moment in The Beast with a Billion Backs when he did have square pupils.
  • Another design flaw arose in The Beast with a Billion Backs when he had a mouth designed similarly to Bender's instead of vertical lines, though it worked the same as usual.
  • Is made of solid gold (although apparently there is some plating to give him different shades of it).
  • Is a member of the League of Robots.
  • Hedonismbot is shown supporting Proposition ∞, even though the relationship with his semi-recurring valet/lover named Djambi (a male human) is not legalized by it.
    • The fact that his relationship with Djambi was not legalized may explain why he planned to get married to a house in "The Late Philip J. Fry".
  • In the couch gag for "Simpsorama", the Simpsons' couch turns into Hedonismbot.

Quotes[edit]

    Hedonismbot: Surgery in an opera? How wonderfully decadent! And just when I was beginning to lose interest... Djambi, the chocolate icing!

    Hedonismbot: Hello, handsome. Might I procure your services?
    'Bender: Uh, what do I have to do?
    Hedonismbot: Oh, nothing sordid, I assure you! Simply vomit on me, ever so gently, while I humiliate a pheasant. [Bender begins to retch.] Save it for the boudoir!

    Hedonismbot: I too have known unconventional love. Perhaps you and I... and Djambi, can get together and compare notes sometime.

    Hedonismbot: Let us cavort like the Greeks of old! You know the ones I mean.

    Hedonismbot: [Picking up one of Farnsworth's doomsday devices.] What does this one do?
