| Character Information
Ralph-O-Cop was a robot on the Robot Rumble TV show. It was owned by Chief Wiggum and his son Ralph.
Ralph-O-Cop rolled on tank treads, wore a police officer's cap, and had a picture of Ralph for its face. For tools, it had one arm that stuck out straight holding a gun.
When Ralph-O-Cop fought Chief Knock-A-Homer, Ralph-O-Cop attacked first, charging and firing his gun. The bullets went through Chief Knock-A-Homer's body, hitting Homer (who was secretly inside the robot) in the arms. Homer then turned the tables on Ralph-O-Cop, grabbing his gun and shooting him several times in the head to win the fight. At this, the match announcer said, "Well, if you wanna see a mailbox shoot a boy, that's about as close as you're gonna get."
Behind the Laughter
- "Ralph-O-Cop" is a pun on RoboCop.
- Unlike the episode, real-life robot fighting competitions have strict guidelines prohibiting the use of projectile weapons, such as firearms, for the safety of both contestants and spectators.
