Futurama Speed Dating
Welcome Futurama fans, future Futurama fans, and family members who we'll be spamming with this post!
Only got a minute but want to get caught up to speed (see what we did there?) on the goings on of Futurama? Never fear, SYFY is here to introduce you to the eclectic cast of characters fast and furious style...through gifs! Without further ado, we present: The Planet Express team (and guests) in all their animated glory!
Philip J. Fry
A transplant from a different century, Fry, as his friends call him, may be a little **ahem** slow on the uptake compared to his futuristic pals. But he brings a fresh and immature (but we love it), perspective to his new crew.
Strong, stubborn, and sassy, Leela is the badass mutant captain of the Planet Express. Her take-no-prisoners attitude may not always make her the most popular amonst the crew, but they always thank their lucky stars for her, when she's bailing their butts out of trouble.
Drinking, smoking, cursing and stealing. He's not bad, he's just coded that way. Looking for empathy? You've come to the wrong automaton.
Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth
Founder of Planet Express Inc. and Fry's distant nephew, the Professor is an aging evil scientist. At roughly 160 years old, the Professor is oftentimes forgetful and cranky. But without him, the entire crew would be out of work.
Dr. John A. Zoidberg
A lobster-like alien from the planet Decapod 10, Dr. Zoidberg is the Planet Express staff physician. While he's supposedly an expert on humans and all extraterrestrial creatures, his diagnoses are usually (read: always) innacurate. Also? His bizarre habits and proclivity for garbage sometimes alienate him from the rest of the crew-- because duh and eww.
Amy is the ditzy intern at Planet Express and heiress to the western hemisphere of Mars. Amy is an astrophysics student at Mars University and can often be heard cursing in a combination of Cantonese and 31st-century slang. #impressive
Mom is the owner of MomCorp, the largest robot manufacturing company of the 31st century. While she puts on a loving and nurturing facade, she's actually extremely crude and prone to verbally harassing her three incompetent sons: Walt, Larry, and Igner. We (heart) mom.
