|First appearance||"Möbius Dick" (6ACV15)|
|Voiced by||David Herman|
- Not to be confused with Lando Tucker, Jr..
Lando Tucker was a member of the first Planet Express crew and the captain of the first Planet Express ship in 2961, being an equivalent to Leela. Professor Farnsworth described him as "a dedicated young man with no characteristics" in 3011 (6ACV15).
In 2961, Lando Tucker was digested by a four-dimensional space whale along with the rest of the first crew and, as the whale feeds on obsession, which is greater in a space captain, was extremely deformed. In 3011, however, the whale, piloted by Leela, set him free, but the effects of the whale sapping him of his energy still lingered, keeping him seemingly aged and attached to whale parts. This is because he never entered the "Möbius colon" keeping his colleagues young.
- His name is an apparent reference to Lando Calrissian from Star Wars, who was the captain of the Millennium Falcon before Han Solo.
- His deformity may be a reference to Bootstrap Bill Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Lando Tucker: We'll deliver that package or die trying.
Mrs. Tucker: Lando, don't forget about me and Junior.

Lando Tucker: I won't, honey. [He puts his right hand on his chest.] Or die trying.
