Robot Santa Claus was built in 2801 by Mom's Friendly Robot Company. His designers intended him to deliver gifts to all the good people of Earth on Xmas Eve. However, due to a glitch in his judgment circuits, his standards are impossibly high, and he invariably judges everyone to be naughty (one exception is Zoidberg, to whom he gave a pogo stick) - and then he tries to kill them.

Santa Claus spends most of the year living in his Death Fortress on Neptune. His fortress is surrounded and inhabited by Neptunian workers. These workers growth is stunted by the lack of food, so they reach an adult height equivalent to the height of a human knee (as opposed to a healthy Neptunian, such as Elzar, who is comparable in height to a human) and they are all unemployed since the toy factory closed down because of Robot Santa's malfunction.

He took part in the Battle for Earth, 3007 (alongside his holiday counterparts Kwanzaa-bot and Chanukah Zombie forming the Holiday Trinity) as the Scammer Aliens scammed him, making him too miserable for murder.

Trivia

  • The Robot Santa Claus will be the second Build a Bot in the Toynami Futurama Figures. From Series 4 to 6, you will be able to collect parts of this toy, to assemble yourself (because the toy company was too lazy to).
    • An exclusive Robot Santa figure was released on July 2008, at the SDCC. It is the same as the Build a Bot version.
  • Zoidberg is the only character that he considers nice.
