Malfunctioning Eddie[source]

Malfunctioning Eddie is an unstable robot who owns Malfunctioning Eddie's Rocket-Car Emporium. He has a problem with his head exploding when he gets surprised and he was sent to the Hal Institute for Criminally Insane Robots for this reason. While in the institute, he was Philip J. Fry's roommate and contributed to Fry's developing madness because of his exploding problem. Over time, Eddie would slowly overcome this, with frequent visits from his doctor, until he was considered safe for discharge and was replaced by Roberto.[1] Later, however, he was seen with his head exploding again, after hearing the news that all the robots would be shut down.[2]
