Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth is the founder and CEO of Planet Express. Farnsworth was born way back in 2841, he soon developed into a greasy teenager and by his 30s he had become a scientist and inventor. Over the years, the Professor has had an on again off again relationship with Mom and a hundred year feud with fellow scientist Dr. Ogden Wernstrom. By 2999, his family had been reduced to just himself and an incomplete clone. At the end of the year he learned that his great uncle was alive after having been frozen for a thousand years and almost ten years later, he found out that had a son. While Hubert's eyes, ears and internal organs have begun to fail him, the Professor retains the fiery passion of youth.
