Footbot makes his appearance in Stan's story, "Grunkle Stan Wins the Football Bowl." In it, he helps Grunkle Stan win the football bowl. He was thanked by him for creating him as Stan was being congratulated by the football players. He then joins Stan as he and the rest laugh while planes fly by.
The Footbot in the story appears to have been based on a project Stan made for the New Jersey Science Fair while he was in school. This can be seen in "A Tale of Two Stans." When Stan's brother, Ford, is presenting his invention to the judges, what looks like a prototype of Footbot is on the table next to him.
The proto-Footbot from "A Tale of Two Stans" appears to be a toaster with a football taped to the top.
