Calculon, voiced by Maurice LaMarche, is an acting robot who mostly acts in melodramatic roles. His most famous role is in the long-running robot soap opera All My Circuits, in which he plays the lead character named after himself. He is from the 21st century, having been created as a standard industrial robot called Calculon 1.0. He changes his appearances and name every few decades to hide his true age, one of his claimed disguises being David Duchovny. It is revealed in "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV" that in his career acting for All My Circuits, he only had to do one take for each scene. He comments that only amateurs do two takes. His manner is loosely based on the cartoonish aspects of Charlton Heston. In the episode "The Honking", it is revealed that his first job was as a worker building the most evil car in existence, Project Satan. He was run over by this car and thus is a were-car (the robot equivalent of a werewolf). Since the curse is broken after the original were-car is destroyed, Calculon is freed of this curse at the end of the episode.
