URL (pronounced "Earl") is a peace officer for the New New York Police Department, whose main partner is Smitty.

Biography[edit]

Little is known of URL's past or for that matter present, but he has been seen periodically throughout the series. What is known is that he has worked with the NNYPD since at least 2999 (1ACV01).

On New Year's Eve 2999, URL went with Smitty to the Head Museum, having been called by Leela to help catch a fugitive who didn't want to be a delivery boy (1ACV01). He was later seen with Smitty again to search for Bender's antenna after it was cut off (1ACV03). They both were later seen at the 3001 Miss Universe Pageant (2ACV06), where they arrested Flexo instead of Bender due to a case of mistaken identity. URL and Smitty also arrested the entire Planet Express crew when they couldn't pay for an expensive meal from Elzar's Fine Cuisine (2ACV13). Smitty and URL later arrested Bender again, thinking he was Robot Santa Claus (3ACV03). They were later seen on Pluto monitoring Bender community service after he spilled dark matter in the penguin reserve (3ACV05). They arrested Bender another time with Fry and the orphans that Bender adopted (3ACV09). He and Smitty arrested Bender and Fry for the Big Apple Bank hold-up instead of Roberto (3ACV11). He later attended the Big Robot Party on the Galápagos Islands as did every robot on Earth (4ACV08). He later told Fry to not let Nibbler's dark matter on the sidewalk (4ACV10). They later went in the Rent-A-Wreck Video to find Fry who said the forbidden words (4ACV11). He arrested Kif when he stole property from the aquarium (4ACV16). They attended the Turanga-Fillmore wedding, (BBS). They arrested Professor Farnsworth and Wernstrom and imprisonned them in the Fulcrum County Prism, he was also present at the League of Robots when Bender joined the league, (TBWABB). His alter-ego in Cornwood is the man who guards with Smitty the Wipe Castle doors, (BG). They attended the Violet Dwarf Star Implosion, (ITWGY). In 3010, they arrested Bender to vandalizing New New York (6ACV04) and they arrested Leela when Fry revealed she was a mutant (6ACV12). In 3011, they arrested Roberto before Smitty took an early retirement. He was then paired with Fry who joined the police earlier. They arrested Erwin Schrödinger and they were promoted to the Future Crimes Division. He then began a robosexual love with the Chief O'Mannahan (6ACV16). In 3012, he had sex with Bev, who subsequently gave birth to their child (7ACV01).

Production[edit]

His character voice, performed by John DiMaggio, is made to sound like a 1970s soul brother.

Trivia[edit]

  • URL is featured on one of the discs of The Complete Collection 1999-2009.
