This article is about the character. You may be looking for the episode.

Robot Randy is an automaton from a foreign planet whose starring role was in his self-titled episode. He is voiced by John R. Dilworth.


Randy's desire to not mindlessly destroy things made him an outcast to his fellow robots, which is shown to deeply trouble him and exacerbates his sense of loneliness. To compensate, he puts on a facade of superiority, calling himself the "most powerful robot in the universe" but still finds himself to be a failure to his people. Secretly, Randy is an incredible whittler that is particularly talented with reindeer sculptures, though he doesn't believe this hobby is worthwhile. He can also breakdance.

However, he overcame his lack of confidence at the end of the self-titled episode. He also doesn't tolerate insults which was shown when he used his laser to blast a robot after asking him if he can make anything else which he took as insult.


A pacifist in a society of violent robots, Randy was an object of ridicule among his clan. After excessive failure in the explosion department, he was sent to conquer Earth in order to redeem his honor. Once on the planet, he enslaved the residents of a farmhouse, forcing them to build statues of him. However, he was internally conflicted, as he did not wish to hurt others, but instead to whittle reindeer.

The next day, a falling out between Eustace and Courage caused the statues to be destroyed, and so he punished the farmer and his wife. In the mean time, Courage challenged him to a dance competition to save them, which he won. Randy released his slaves, but realized that this confirmed his status as a failure. Fortunately, Muriel helped him see that his carving abilities made him too talented for petty destruction, and upon return to his planet, he was accepted for his skills (Ep.14-2).

Season 4[]


  • Robot Randy, like every other antagonist that are featured in the Season One opening, are antagonists that debut in Season Two.
  • His voice is based on Christopher Walken.
  • Robot Randy's appearance and pacifistic personality may be based upon Robby the Robot, a character from the 1956 sci-fi film, Forbidden Planet.
  • Though he doesn't like to destroy things, he did shoot the Bagge's house when Eustace entered only because Eustace ignored his warnings as well, and blasted Eustace himself when he refused to work.
    • Furthermore, he destroyed a robot into pieces after he felt insulted by that robot.
    • Both of these situations somewhat make him a hypocrite, however, it is not the case.
  • He is the only one of his species to be colored blue, red, and yellow; while the rest are colored green and yellow. He seems to be the shortest too, perhaps the youngest of his kind.
  • He is still destructive to some degree, despite not wanting to destroy things, especially when he is shown blasting another robot after an insulting comment.
