Calculon is most famous as the star of the hit robot soap opera All My Circuits. He has also appeared in films, including The Magnificent Three, for which he was nominated for an Oscar although this was just Dr. Zoidberg trying to save his own skin as Calculon had said earlier that if he didn't win one he would kill Bender, Harold Zoid and Zoidberg.

Throughout his career he has lived a secret life unknown to the public. He is over a thousand years old, rather than 27 as claimed in his biography. He changes identities every few decades, and starting out from a humble beginning as a motorized service arm working on Project Satan made his way to being many of history's great acting robots, including Acting Unit 0.8, Thespa-mat, and David Duchovny. For most of this thousand years, he was also a Were-Car, until Fry and Leela broke the curse by destroying the original were-car.

Quotes

    Robot Devil: Calculon, old friend, I'm afraid I need your ears.
    Calculon: Well I do owe you for giving me this unholy (melodramatically) acting talent.

    Calculon: Oh, how cruel and melodramatic fate is. (shouting) Why?

    Calculon: NOOOOOOOO!

    Bender as Coilette: But you always said you'd rather burn down a convent than give up show business.
    Calculon: I always said many things.

    Calculon: [on TV] Honey unit, I'm home. [He gasps.] Monique!
    [Monique is in bed with Boxy. She pulls the sheets up around her.]
    Monique: [on TV] Calculon!
    Boxy: [beeps.]
    Calculon: [on TV] Oh, how I wish I could believe that. You may be my evil half-brother, but there's no law against murdering the other half.

    Calculon: That was so terrible, I think you gave me cancer! I don't care how popular you are, you will never work on my show!
    Fry: Yay, Bender!
    Leela: We demand Bender!
    Calculon: However, you've got the job.

    Calculon: Nay, I respect and admire Harold Zoid too much to beat him to death with his own Oscar.

    Monique: Calculon! I thought you were.....
    Calculon: Egyptian?!
