The Robot Elders, who rule the Robotic population of Chapek 9, are, like most governments, extremely corrupt. They are over four centuries old and were carved from meteorites by the Robot Founders. The one with yellow eyes is named Jimmy.

All five Elders are well aware that Humans are no threat to their way of life. Nonetheless, they spread anti-Human rumors and propaganda constantly as a means of distracting their people from the planet's real problems, such as its inhabitants' crippling lug nut shortage and incompetent rulers (1ACV05).

One of them served as Chapek 9's ambassador to DOOP, and was also a member of the jury in the trial of Zapp Brannigan (2ACV02)

Quotes

    Leela: What's going on here?
    Orange Elder: Silence! Bring in Bender.
    [The doors open. Enter Bender.]
    Bender: Alright, let's make this quick. I'm due at the opening of a mini-mall. Hey, what is this?
    Blue Elder: Silence! It is time to put the Humans to death!
    Fry: But the judge already sentenced us at the trial!
    Yellow Elder: Silence! That was just a show for the public. We are the true rulers of this planet, hand carved from meteorites by the Robot Founders, four centuries ago.
    Blue Elder: Silence! Come forward, Bender. You will have the honour of executing the prisoners.
    Green Elder: Silence! I concur!

    Bender: Humans are no threat to us. They're stupid, putrid cowards!
    Fry: Damn right!
    Bender: The fact is, Humans are completely harmless!
    Blue Elder: We're well aware of that.
    Bender: You are?
    Blue Elder: Of course, but they're useful to us as a scapegoat to distract the public from their real problems.
    Green Elder: Like our crippling lug nut shortage!
    Orange Elder: And a corrupt government of incompetent Robot Elders!
    Jimmy: Duh, that's for sure!
    Blue Elder: Quiet, Jimmy!

    Fry: Stop! Take one more step and I'll breathe fire on you!
    Leela: He'll do it! He's crazy!
    Jimmy: Can they really breathe fire or did we make that up?
    Blue Elder: Gee, I can't remember any more. It might just be from that stupid movie.
