24% of fans said this was their least favorite Futurama character

Long before Star Trek Lower Decks brought workplace comedies into the final frontier Matt Groenings Futurama introduced audiences to a bizarre cast of colleagues employed at Planet Express. Premiering in 1999 on Fox Futurama combined the comedic sensibilities of Groenings animated hit The Simpsons with the distant future setting of Star Trek. Set in the 31st century Futurama revolves around a cast of animated characters working for a futuristic FedEx ensuring the prompt delivery of packages to locations across the galaxy. During its sevenseason run the series amassed considerable acclaim and accumulated numerous awards including the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program.

However despite repeated critical acclaim Fox canceled the series in 2003 after a mere four seasons. Five years later Comedy Central brought Futurama back to the small screen airing an additional three seasons before recanceling it in 2013. Indeed Futurama has the distinct honor of being canceled and revived more than a few times. In 2020 Hulu announced yet another Futurama revival set to air in 2023 via The Hollywood Reporter. Ahead of the gangs return Looper fielded a survey asking American audiences which character on the series was their least favorite. While the margins were slim among most one character seems to have really rubbed viewers the wrong way. The slacker and the Ph.D. get the least votes
Fry says take my money

With just 10.43% of the 633 responses the series main protagonist Philip J. Fry clearly endeared himself to viewers over seven seasons. Voiced by Billy West Fry serves as the audiences entry into the next millennium. At the start of Futurama Fry is a slacking pizza delivery person living in New York City in the year 1999. After accidentally undergoing cryogenic stasis the hapless fellow wakes up a whole 1000 years later. Displaced and largely lacking any employable skills Fry becomes a delivery person with Planet Express and from there the hijinks begin.

Next on the list is multilingual Amy WongKroker Lauren Tom who managed to avoid the disgrace of least favorite by only getting 11.06% of the vote. In her 20s Amy brings a sense of style and entitlement to her nearly everlasting Ph.D. internship at Planet Express. Despite her frequently snobbish and selfcentered ways Amy is a driving force behind the legalization of robosexuality a movement that helps make humanrobot marriage legal. Over the course of the series Amy finally earns her degree and after some ups and downs finds love with Lt. Kif Kroker Maurice LaMarche.

Receiving just a few more votes than Amy is the purplehaired Turanga Leela Katey Sagal with 11.37% of the votes. Beyond her striking hair Leelas mutant heritage is evident in her cycloptic face. As both the captain and pilot of the delivery ship Leela provides a nononsense grounding for her colleagues. Though she entertains other romantic relationships Leelas bond with Fry is the focus of many seasons with the two even marrying and spending decades together before deciding to go back in time and start their lives anew.

In the middle of the pack is Bender Bending Rodríguez John DiMaggio who earned 12.48% of the survey takers votes. While Leelas all about working hard Bender is her polar opposite. The robot tends to dive headfirst into every situation regardless of the danger and the risk to those around him. Though he tends to pride himself on his aloof and selfcentered demeanor Bender has — on rare occasions — expressed empathy for his colleagues when they are facing tough challenges.

In third place with 13.43% of the vote is Planet Express accountant Hermes Conrad Phil LaMarr. The onetime limbo champion doesnt have much time for personal interactions with his coworkers preferring instead to complete his professional duties with care and dedication. While he has mostly neutral relationships with his colleagues Hermes hatred for Dr. Zoidberg is a primary factor of his personality.
The professor and the doctor top the list

Good news everyone! Planet Express CEO Hubert J. Farnsworth Billy West comes in second place receiving 16.90% of the vote. Balancing scientific genius with encroaching senility the 160yearold Farnsworth typically enters a scene with his famous catchphrase something that almost always precedes the reveal of his latest invention. These inventions range from advanced robotics to worldending devices. Focused solely on the big picture and heedless of others lives Farnsworth goes through delivery crews with astonishing frequency.

Interestingly the character with the most votes is Dr. John A. Zoidberg Billy West — which is sure to put a smile on Hermes face. With a whopping 24.33% of the vote the Planet Express staff doctor is the clear winner of the survey. Zoidberg of course would likely find some goodnatured reason for receiving so many votes — after all he believes Hermes is among his closest friends. While not the most competent physician his affable nature and long friendship with Farnsworth are likely the only qualities that save him from termination throughout the course of the series. Unfortunately despite his friendly persona Zoidbergs personal hygiene makes even platonic relationships a challenge.
