Tinny Tim is an unlucky orphan robot who lives on the streets of New New York. He uses a crutch (which seems to replace his arm) to help himself walk. Despite the hardships he endures, he seems to be accepting of his lot in life. Though generally seen begging, he has also been seen selling newspapers.

Character description

Tinny Tim is in spite of other's treatment of him often apologizing for his very existence, and he seems to be accepting his lot in life. Whenever he is incorporated in a company as an equal (for example with Dwight and Cubert in "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on Television") he is not only happy but surprised, and he perfectly agrees with being left out.

Production

Tinny Tim was based on the character of Tiny Tim in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol", both in name, character, appearance and voice.
