       Emshwiller did at least 3 other drawings of his four armed Santa, in addition to those 4. Just put Emshwiller Santa in any good image search engine.

    Great work by EMSH — Ed Emshwiller (as is the linked art from Napalm Dog’s comment). He’d be worth a feature here, for his movies too.

    The fools!  Don’t they know that in the 31st Century, Robot Santa is a deranged madman intent on destroying us all?  Except Zoidberg, oddly enough. . .
