A thread to talk about random chracters who do appear in the background every few episodes.
For example the pizza robot from "A fishfull of Dollars" is also in "Bendin' in the wind".
Or the one protestor (black woman, wearing cool pulovers) in "Icebot", "Popplers" and "Bendin'".
Here you can see her (behind Waterfall jr.).

Seen any other random characters?
What's your favourite?
If the series would go on - which random characters should become minor-characters or even more? You know: a name, a voice, an own life-history? What are your ideas for that?

My favorite random character is Tiny Tim. This lovable little robot had won my heart from the first time i see him and i think he has deserved a bigger part.

im a fan of the lazy guy from the series has landed, hes also the truck stop guy from PS. making appearances in various other episodes, and on a lesser percentile possibility i think he may be the same character as the bus driver who bender sets up with leela in PYHOMS.

The Hyperchicken was only supposed to be a one-shot character for "Brannigan Begin Again", but he proved so succesfull he was brought back repeatedly, essential making him the Lionel Hutz of Futurama.

I still hope they had plans to bring ack iHawk at some point. He really rocked.

They should've shown the Panucci's Pizza robot again! I love the voice DiMaggio did for him. And as the "Slurm Factory" commentary said, more transexual robots!

Beside the ones mentioned, I thought Randy was pretty funny. Oh! And more Neptuniens, I'd like to see the citys that they have on Neptune.

Randy appeared quite frequently as a background character, as did his friend from "I, Roommate" the lady with the huge ass. They were both in the courtroom for Fry and Bender's trial in IITM.

Hatty (Voiced by Tress Macneille) is quite funny.  I also like Lionel Preacherbot.

Tiny Tim
It's Tinny Tim- just to nitpick. But Malfunctioning Eddie is brilliant. Also, I assume Hattie's the one in LTH who hasn't slept for 30 years- amazing.
One more thing (which is partly pointed out in the MU commentary) is that many robots are built with really dumb designs (Tinny Tim with a crutch, FatBot with the obesity, HedonismBot built into a couch, etc.) But that belongs elsewhere.

I like Victor, the guy who sells Amy her car. though every time he says his own name it sounds like Bictor, and the Preacherbot.

Yeah, Tinny Tim sure packs a lot of humor for his size...

Yeah, I really liked Victor too.  Oh and I would have liked to see a bit more of malfunctioning Eddie, although I guess he is in it quite a lot.

I don't think Tinny Tim's a background character in that sense.  He has a major part in BSNBAOTV, as well as substantial parts on episodes like Bender Gets Made and Xmas Story.

My favourite random character would be the Abominable Snowmobile fembot in 'The Honking'. She's also in 'Bend Her' at the wedding.
