The Robot Elders are five Robots who rule Chapek 9, a planet inhabited entirely by robots. Over 400 years old, they were carved from meteorites by the robot separatists who founded the robotic civilisation on that planet. The one with yellow eyes is named Jimmy, while the names of the others are not mentioned.

They are, like most governments, extremely corrupt. Although they are well aware that Humans pose no threat to their way of life, they constantly spread anti-Human propaganda as a means of keeping their citizens focused on hating Humans and away from the planet's real problems, such as their own incompetence and corruption, and a crippling lug nut shortage (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)

Additional Info


    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!
    Orange 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!
    Orange Elder: 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.
    Green Elder: Was that the original or the remake?
    Blue Elder: I don't - Hey! They're getting away!
