I do not believe anyone has posted a topic on this, but if I am mistaken, forgive me. (It probably has been mentioned once or twice...)
Anywho, the new CGI movie about and called "Robots" includes a wisecracking robot named Fender. Coincidence or not?  mad I believe that's all I can say on the subject while remaining in good taste.

I dont get it. And I doubt its a direct futurama reference. Theres already a fender robot character in futurama.

I know, and in any other case, I'd think it was simply a coincidence, but at the very least, it's a lack of creativity. I find it hard to believe that they have never heard of Futurama's famous Bender. But, if I was too mean, I'm sorry.

I think we'd really have to see the movie before reaching a conclusion on this.

Robin Williams?  I think he might be one of my choices to play Bender in a Futurama live action ...  *dies*

Yes, hopefully one day they'll realize that actual voice actors make the best voice actors...  hmpf
