|First appearance||"Fear of a Bot Planet" (1ACV05)|
The Robot Elders who rule the robotic population of Chapek 9 are, like most governments, extremely corrupt. They 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 people from the planet's real problems.
The Elders are four centuries old and were carved from meteorites by the Robot Founders.
The one with yellow eyes is named "Jimmy."
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 incompotent Robot Elders!
Yellow Elder: Duh, that's for sure!
Blue Elder: Quiet, Jimmy!
