* On ''Series/GetSmart'' [[RobotBuddy Hymie]] had NoSenseOfHumor but was a great source of laughs for being too LiteralMinded and [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength not knowing his own strength]]. For more yucks, he tended to malfunction a lot too.

* Orbital 7, Kaito's RobotBuddy in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' doesn't ''intend'' to be funny, but he often winds up the comic relief anyway, becoming a ButtMonkey more often than not. (For example, when he switches to "combat mode", he's a clumsy fighter, getting the drills he uses as weapons jammed and winding up in embarrassing situations more often than not.)

** The Obots are CuteMachines designed to pick up garbage, and are used for comic relief, until the season one finale where [[TheDragon Mr. Hartland]] uses them as MechaMooks.

* ComicBook/{{X-Men}} villain Mojo has an android named Major Domo as his right-hand-man [[AmoralAttorney (plus his accountant and attorney)]]; Major Domo, while loyal, has [[DeadpanSnarker a sarcastic wit]], and is likely the only one who can get away with criticizing his boss (mostly because Mojo is often too preoccupied to notice). Also, Major Domo has a female android as an assistant called [[PerkyFemaleMinion Minor Domo]]; a [[MotorMouth fast-talking, cheering supporter]] of Mojo's schemes, she tends to be over-exuberant and excitable, so much that she often short circuits from excitement, literally. (Fortunately, she can be restarted quickly via a button on the back of her neck.)

* In ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' in 1984, [[KidGenius Oliver Wendell Holmes]] received a Banana Junior 6000 (a parody of the Macintosh, that debuted the same year) for Christmas; it quickly proved able to talk, and had legs. It was a rude, obnoxious wiseass who would "worship" the television and contemplate its existence (badly). It was usually Oliver's [[TheCracker hacking partner]] (only confiscated by the FBI twice) until 1985 when he deemed it obsolete, mostly because of the bankruptcy of the Banana Computer Company (which only sold two units, including Oliver's).

(She's been rebuilt each time; usually she has an off-button - again, literally - that Major Domo uses to calm her down.)

* K9. Originally from classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' and eventually spinning off to [[Series/{{K9}} his own short-lived series]], K9 was plucky, brave, and well-nigh indestructible--a combination that made him both adorable and frequently hilarious.
* Lampshaded that The Doctor hates funny robots in ''Series/DoctorWho'' ''The Waters of Mars''.

* General Tik-Tok from the [[Literature/LandOfOz]] Oz books, a helpful [[ClockworkCreature a clockwork man]] and RobotBuddy to the other characters. Usually he's very serious, but he can be ''very'' funny when his brain winds down before his voice and movements do; without any actual thinking to govern it, he wanders aimlessly and blabbers nonsensically until someone winds up his thought mechanism.

Often overlaps with RobotBuddy, and can be a subtrope to AmusingAlien.

Often overlaps with RobotBuddy, and can be a subtrope to AmusingAlien. Rarely has anything to do with ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'', although the show ''is'' funny and often involves robots.



** GLaDOS can be rather funny in both games [[BlackHumor in a rather grim way]], although while the way she taunts and goads Chell may be funny to the player, it's likely not all that funny to Chell.



* For that matter, GLaDOS can be rather funny too in both games [[BlackHumor in a rather grim way]], although while the way she taunts and goads Chell may be funny to the player, it's likely not all that funny to Chell.
