About Hubert J. Farnsworth
Hubert J. Farnsworth, better known as Professor Farnsworth, is a senile inventor on the Fox comedy show Futurama. He’s at least 160-years-old, and his inventions are not meant for the greater good of the people. The mad scientist is known for being dangerous and putting the planet at risk of danger more times that he can count.
Professor Farnsworth was the founder of Planet Express delivery service, and he would use his employees to make dangerous deliveries. He was born inside a prison and later sent to a mental institution as a teenager. He has a knack for creating Doomsday devices. This isn’t a surprise seeing that he was confined to a mental institution for 25 years. His crew members don’t stand much of a chance either due to the suicide missions he sends them on and the lunatic ideas that nearly get them killed.
