–Donbot in "Bendless Love"

Donbot is one of the recurring antagonists in Futurama. He is a round, greenish robot with rings around each of his fingers. He almost always has a hat, suit jacket, and occasionally, a cane. He is the head of the Robot Mafia, joined by his subordinates Joey Mousepad and Clamps.[1] His wife, Fanny, had an affair with Bender and his daughter, Bella, had sex with Bender at her sister's wedding.[2]


The Donbot, or Don "Smith", is the gangster in charge of the Robot Mafia, and presumably a parody on the traditional Italian mob boss such as Al Capone and Vito Corleone. His appearance is based upon these Mafia dons, including the stereotypical tilted fedora, suit and cigars. He is always seen with his obedient and dimwitted goons, Joey and Francis X. "Clamps" Clampotzo. The three robots make up the entire Robot Mafia. The Donbot is a loan shark and profits from various criminal endeavors, often seen threatening, beating or intimidating robots that owe he feels owe him money by having Clamps give them "a clamping". When on trial the Donbot engages in obvious witness intimidation and jury tampering as Bender testifies against him in "The Silence of the Clamps", where the Donbot sends Clamps undercover as an employee at the Planet Express in order to murder Bender after he is relocated in the witness protection program. The Donbot is very slow and trusting, being fooled by his wife Fanny and Bender multiple times during their obvious affair in the Futurama movie "Into the Wild Green Yonder".

Trivia Edit

  • The name Don is slang for a leader of a Mafia crime family, and bot obviously means robot.
  • Donbot has a voice similar to Vito Corleone in The Godfather, but more understandable.
  • According to his daughter, Bella there are three things The Donbot cannot stand, all of which Bender was doing at once (although doing the last one is somewhat questionable), which were: "(being a) witnesses", "Making out with his daughters", and "Attempts at duplicating his meatball recipe".
  • In "Viva Mars Vegas" as his finger is being scanned, the display identifies him as Don "Smith".
    • So it is possible that his first name is really Don.
