In Bender Should Not Be Allowed On TV, in Bender's protest group, you see the Donbot. He doesn't really seem like the type to go on a march protecting kids from bad TV. confused

Well, he may have a child.  Well, clearly that seems to be implied.  I mean, he is the 'Godfather' of the Robot Mafia.  So if he is a parody of a Mafia boss, he will most certainly care about his family.

It would be cool to see an episode with his family in it.

Well his wife comes out in ITWGY...

I think that's the closest we'll ever get to it though, maybe in the new series...

Fat Tony in the Simpsons had a son in the carpool so I think it is possible for the Donbot to have a kid.

Well, I had this idea with no support whatsoever (except for maybe that scene, and the episode "Bender Gets Made"), but knowing the nature of Futurama with such twists like Fry's purpose, Leela's parents, and Farnsworth's son, well, I kind of get this "hunch" that Tinny Tim may be (or become, they may have just came up with this concept) the son of Donbot and Fanny. He did live in little Bitaly, a place that's destined to have a mafia. Maybe Tinny Tim isn't as pitiful as the writers make him out to be- he has a crutch for an arm and a crippled leg possibly just because he was built that way. He may be going home to someplace nice (or, if my theory's false, then he wouldn't be going home at all).

That's a really interesting idea, and I see why you might think that...on the other hand, in "Xmas Story" Robot Santa says that Tinny Tim is an orphan, and I'd assume considering his specifications Robot Santa would know that sort of thing (one could just as easily claim that since Robot Santa isn't doing quite what he was designed to do, he just as easily could be mistaken, though). Nevertheless, it doesn't seem too terribly farfetched that they'd come up with an idea like that (though I don't think I'd want it to be true, not out of a desire for Tinny Tim to suffer but for continuity's sake).

Awesome Idea.

The Donbot is probably like a Tony Soprano type.  In the Sopranos, he was a mob boss that had a family.  Or maybe he's like a Michael Corleone type.   Whom he is probably tailored after.   

Just because the Donbot is involved in organized crime, doesn't mean he doesn't love his family.  I've watched enough gangster movies to know that.   So, maybe he joined Bender's protest because he was afraid TV was a bad influence on his kid.   Unless he just wanted to whack a TV exec!  wink
