Sport Utility Robot, built in 2927, was the first polluting robot and the first successful robot to be big and sporty. Mom decided to classify it as a light truck. The design is ancestral to most modern robots, and looks like a primative version of Bender. The name "Sport Utility Robot" may be a reference to 21st century SUV's (Sport Utility Vehicles) which pollute more than sedans.

As of 3003, SURs are obsolete and generally replaced by the Robot 1-X, at least as laborer robots.

Additional Info


  • The SUR seen in the Professor's flashback was allegedly one of the original designs for Bender.
  • Maybe a reference to Sport-Utility Vehicles (SUV)
