The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future is a crazy robot who claims that he is the Ghost of Christmas Past. He has a penchant for telling drawn-out stories with absolutely no factual basis or consistency.

He first appears in "Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future", where he invades Carl's house to tell him how Christmas was like when he was eight, he tells a mostly accurate story... That is until he decides to talk about "The War of Man vs Machine" and that Carl dosen't remember that because it was only a prophecy back then, but now in the future, the past has occured.

But before he can ramble on further, Carl points out that they're in Feburary, confusing the robot who swears to Carl that he'll return in December... Tomorrow, crashing through his doorway. The next day, he fills Carl's pool with elfen blood, and after Frylock asks why he did such a thing, plot device to tell the Aqua Teens and Carl about the original Santa Claus, an ape named "Sir Santa of Claws," and elves from Mars of which he eslaved.

He says that the only way for Carl to get rid of the blood is for Carl to have sex with the Great Red Ape in Space. Carl eventually gets rid of him by selling his house to Glenn Danzig, who buys the house specifically for the blood, and whom the Ghost can't stand.

He's mentioned in "The Dressing" by Turkatron, who claimed to be the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future, but was later discovered to just be a defective toy from the present. Still, the Cybernetic Ghost and Turkatron have the same voice and penchant for telling convoluted stories, though Turkatron struggles way more at keeping up with said stories than the original robot ever did.

He later actually returns in "The Last One" as one of the many villains invited by The Mooninites to get revenge on the Aqua Teens, and winds up being one of the only seven members of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday... to survive at the end, along with Ignignokt, Err, the Rabbot, Happy Time Harry, Mothmonsterman and Major Shake.

He later appears at the end of "Larry Miller Hair System" where he's instructing a crowd of robots on an apparent mission to travel to the past and destroy "the robot" AKA Carl. However, one of the robots points out that only his hair implant is metal, leading the Ghost into ranting that maybe they should be leading this class instead since they know so much, but the robot decides to go into the time chamber themselves. As the Ghost attempts to activate the "time chamber", the robot points out that it's just a refrigerator box, which makes the Ghost lose his patience and go into the refrigerator bo-time chamber so that he'd be the hero instead, and spends the rest of the credits trying to activate it.

He makes a small appearance in the series finale "The Greatest Story Ever Told". Where he attends a gathering along with many other past villains due to Shake having come to cocaine with him, he then shoots Frylock, Carl and Christopher Lambert to bits by Shake's orders. He is then shot to death by the police.

He also appears in Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters in which he snuck aboard the Plutonians ship and hangs out with them for the entirety of the movie. Here, he developed this weird habit of humping anything that's near him. It's also revealed that he was created by Dr. Weird.

He appears as one of two sports commentators in Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Zombie Ninja Pro-Am, frequently annoying the actual sports commentator at the beginning of every level. He also makes cameos in the theme songs for Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, Aqua Something You Know Whatever, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever.

The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future returns in the Aqua Teen spin-off Aquadonk Side Pieces. In the sixth episode "Breakie B", he goes to the Powerpuff Mall on a mission to destroy the breakdancing toy robot Breakie B.


He's a relatively tall and skinny gray robot, he has a bucket-like head with yellow eyes, a metal Mohawk and a beak with a speaker inside. His chest and pelvis appear to be hollow as you can clearly see the machinery inside of it, he also has a pair of clippers on his left arm and a claw on his right arm, with wide duck-like feet. In his ghostly form, he looks like a shiny blue silhouette of his robot body, with a tiny brain inside his head.


The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future is a pathological liar who needs constant attention, and REALLY doesn't like it whenever someone points out any mistakes in his stories. He also seems to have an immature sense of humor, as he's seen annoying the sports commentator by repeatedly teasing him or rambling about the traditions of his "home planet" in "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am."

Powers and abilities[]


He's most notable ability is to tell ridiculously long, distracting stories, usually starting off with "Thousands of years ago...", followed by a gust of smoke. The smoke — according to Err, smells "smooth and menthol-y", possibly indicating that it's cigarette smoke. As seen in the movie, he's able to project holograms from his eyes and retract himself into multiple deadly weapons. He's also able to store various weapons in each of his body parts and disassemble and reassemble himself without issue.


  • He often tells stories that are very long-winded, have no relevance to the episode plot and are contradicted later on in the series; examples of this include Santa Claus.
  • It's revealed in the "Aquadonk Side Pieces" episode "Breakie B" that the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future is an actual ghost in a suit of robot armor.
  • According to Favorite Episode Promos, Aqua Fakt says Cybernetic Ghost claiming to be a thousand years old, but he's actually only 32 years old.
