Additional Info[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Beeler's name is very similar to that of Futurama writer Ken Keeler, who, like Beeler, holds a PhD and can therefore be referred to as "Doctor". Keeler was originally called "Ben Beeler" by both his college roommate and his mother, and so the other writers named the character after him.[1]
    • Beeler's colleague actually bears a stronger resemblance to Keeler.
