Emotibot, a robot created by Steve (in [[Comic 2]]), is capable of feeling complex emotions. However, Emotibot doesn't experience these emotions automatically; he (or a third party) must manually push a button on Emotibot's control panel that corresponds to a certain emotion (though for unexplained reasons, these buttons seem to change completely on a strip-to-strip basis).  Since Emotibot's emotions are so easily changed, his behavior is highly erratic; he experiences frequent mood swings.

Emotibot, a robot created by Steve in Comic 2, is capable of feeling complex emotions. However, he doesn't experience these emotions automatically; he (or a third party) must manually push a button on Emotibot's control panel that corresponds to a certain emotion (though for unexplained reasons, these buttons seem to change completely on a strip-to-strip basis). Since Emotibot's emotions are so easily changed, his behavior is highly erratic; he experiences frequent mood swings.

During Emotibot's nascent period, he experienced a few glitches, sometimes blasting Beaver in the face with powerful death rays. In addition, Emotibot once produced baked goods such as toast and bagels, but this function seems to have disappeared.

In Comic 111, Steve built a new robot friend for himself and then decided it could replace one of his existing ones. Even though the new friend resembled Beaver in many ways, he decided to throw Emotibot out the door. Since then, he has only made two appearances, both without Beaver and/or Steve - The flashback in Comic 200 and his own spin-off adventure series in Comic 244. A parallel universe version of Emotibot resembling the Tin Man appeared in Comic 267.
