| Bender Rodríguez
| Character Information
Bender Bending Rodríguez, better known as Bender, is a robot and one of the main characters from Matt Groening's television series, Futurama.
He was a phone operator of the FOX, along many other FOX characters. When Bart is sleep deprived in class, he hallucinates his class mates turning into characters from television shows he had been staying up watching, one of which (Richard) is Bender.
In the future, after Homer and Bart drive through a Quantum tunnel, he appears between them and says "All right! You guys are my new best friends". Homer says "You wish, loser!" and throws him out of the car. On Comic Book Guy's list of greatest quotes of all time is "Bite my shiny metal ass" by Bender.
He appears as one of the enemies of the Simpson family, along with Zoidberg, in which he is drawn by Matt Groening and will attack Homer and Bart by shooting them with a laser and throwing beer bottles at them. He also appears as an enemy sent by God in Dance Dance Revolution.
Behind the Laughter
In Futurama, he is voiced by John DiMaggio (who also voices him in The Simpsons) and plays the role of a comic anti-hero, and is described as an "alcoholic, whore-mongering, chain-smoking gambler".
