Top Ten Futurama Characters

Futurama is an animated American sci-fi sitcom created by Matt Groening, and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen for the Fox network. The series follows the adventures of a former New York pizza delivery boy, Philip J. Fry, after he is cryogenically frozen seconds after the start of the year 2000, and thawed out on New Year's Eve 2999.

The Top Ten

1 Bender Bender Bender Bending Rodríguez is a fictional robot who is a main character in the animated television series Futurama. He was created by series creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen and is voiced by John DiMaggio.

Fry: "I hereby accuse Bender of polishing his ass with my toothbrush! "
Bender: "Lies! He's just jealous that my ass is shinier than his! "

Bender: "Woah, mama! Get a room, you two! "
People in room: "We're in a room! "
Bender: "Well, then loose some weight! "

Bender: "Bite my shiny metal ass! "
Fry: "It doesn't look so shiny to me."
Bender: "Shinier than yours, meatbag! "

Farnsworth: "I guess it's a problem that solves itself."
Bender: "That sounds like a job for me, Bender! "

Bender: *at nude beach* "You know, it's funny."
Fry: "What? "
Bender: "Your wiener! "

Leela: "Do you think you could be just a little less evil than that? "
Bender: "I don't know, do you think you could survive at 700 ft fall? "

Fry: "Who was that guy? "
Bender: "Your mama. Now drag me to work! " - DesL42

The main reason why I like bender is because he always ruins everything his best quote "kiss my shiny metal ass" whenever he says that is so funny and in one episode he said this: "SHUT THE HELL UP"

Kiss his shiny metal ass! Bender is great! His amazing humour is what makes him the very best character in Futurama.

Everyone: No!
Bender: DO A FLIP!

Zoidberg: "Go on without me! "
Leela: "I'm TRYING! "
Zoidberg: "Go on without me FASTER! " lol - Celestius

Really tough to choose my fave futurama character but zoidberg is the only one who has me laughing all the time.

I can do an amazing impression of zoidberg. He one of my favorite characters on the show. Too bad it was cancelled.

Dear Zoidberg fans,

Dr. Zoidberg yes is a funny character but Fry reminds everyone of themselves. Also whenever Zoidberg is the star of his own episode they run out of jokes and the episode is very, very boring

From Fry fan

Fry doesn't remind me of myself... and I disagree. I have enjoyed every Zoidberg episode and it has kept me laughing throughout. - triggerita

I'm going to name my child after him because not only do I love the character but I love the name Philip J. He is my childhood hero & how could you not love him he makes the show!

Philip J Fry has to be number 1 he is amazing funny sweet and there should be a person like him. I am like a girl version of him but there has to be a guy like that somewhere! And I can't believe they stop them I cried so much.

He is so handsome

I really ought to do something... But I am already in my pajamas

If anyone needs me I'll be in the angry done because he's not in the top 3

Easily the funniest and most insane of all characters

Are you mad? Cause that makes two of us

5 Turanga Leela Turanga Leela

Leela feels like a real character in a sea of goons. She's often the "Straight Man" to the rest of the cast. Often she is the moral highpoint, but not in an annoying way and still provides a very funny role. She knows what she wants and works hard for it.

Smart, hot and very determined. Must be number one!

She is good but too serious chill little bit

We need a female in the top 2.

6 Amy Wong

Amy is so funny! They really should give her more lines and more screen time. I enjoy watching her on screen a lot more then Leela.

I love amy! I wish she got more sceen time like Leela. I personally like her better then Leela, she's so funny and cute!

She is the hot cool chick who deserves way more screen time!

She is very funny and she should get more screen time!

7 Zapp Brannigan Zapp Brannigan Zapp Brannigan is a fictional character in the animated sitcom Futurama. He is voiced by Billy West, but was originally intended to be voiced by Phil Hartman, with West taking over the role after Hartman's death.

"The alien mother ship is located here. If we can hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate! "

It's funny one day a man has every thing the next day he blows up a 500 billion dollor space station the next day he has nothing.

I find the most erotic part of a woman is the boob- AHH!

Like he sucks but he has more chemistry with Leela than Fry does.

He is cool and is my 4th fave character

He's better than amy

9 Nibbler

He's a talking three eyed alien that has a cape and poops anti-matter, enough said

Dark matter

Cool, and cute baby. yeah.

10 Scruffy the Janitor

Scruffy is by far the most interesting and mysterious character. While we know he likes mustaches and porno mags, there is a lot about Scruffy that we don't know. So when he says something even mildly profound, you have to wonder - Who is Scruffy?

Scruffy the Janitor is one of the most genius things to ever appear on Television let alone Futurama!

"A life with out a mustache is no life at all"

Wait, who is he?
He's the janitor

The Contenders

11 Kif Kroker

He is super cool!

Him and Amy are so cute together 😍

Kif is one of those aliens that would be a perfect boyfriend. He wouldn't be the type to judge you, but instead the kind to merely listen to your ideas, and comment on them if you gave him the chance. He's innocent in many ways, therefore differing him from many other males.

12 Roberto

Just cause I've a hotel in my foot! Flying aubergines! You're not made of Tuesday! Such funny lines...

Roberto is awesome! "What the- you're not made of Tuesday!

Let me practice my stabbing!

56? 56? Now that's all I can think about! - Goatworlds

"You can't just renounce how your characters feel. That makes me feel angry! "
