Hi! I'm new, and to celebrate, I'm going to start a thread on a topic that you old-timers have probably already thoroughly explored!

Who's your least favorite character?

(Feel the boredom set in yet?)

I'm a newbie and so I have TWO least favorites!

1. Zap Brannigan. He's a total jerk who's painfully unfunny. I want something bad to happen to him. And THEN I'd laugh!

2. Bender. He's a jerk who's only sporadically funny, to me. I guess because he's never made sense as a character. I can see the heavy boozing, because he literally runs on the stuff. But the kleptomania and the meanness seem weird. Why would anybody build a robot with those traits? I always wondered if the reason Bender's such an a-hole is because somebody behind the scenes decided that if he created a character who's a million times jerkier than Homer Simpson, he would also be a million times funnier. (buzzer sound) WRONG! But really, Bender doesn't bother me all THAT much. He's okay in small doses, like codeine and Clone Wars.

So anyway them's my choices.

Bender never seemed quite right in the Futurama universe, with the alcohol and smoking and such. It doesn't seem to fit the style or vibe of everything else.
But my least favourite would be Leela. I don't like her voice. And the bitch doesn't bother to do the commentaries, screw her!

edit...oops :s

I don't dislike Bender.In fact since he flies in the face of Asimov's directive, Do not do harm to humans I think that his Kill all humans rant is very clever.His drinking I can do without but his cigar smoking makes him look cool.

Never really been fond of Mom but that's about it really.

Well, Cubert too but his whole purpose on the show is to be completely unlikeable.

He wasn't built with those traits...in the first episode his antenna hits a light globe and he gets electricuted which leads to him bending the cell bars so he and Fry can escape, and therefore allows him to do anything else that previously he wouldn't have done according to the way he was programmed...

OH sorry the question was the character I hate.My senile dementia kicked in.Well let's say that Comedy Central is showing two episodes tonight that feature the same very characters.
1. The Route of All Evil     and
2. The Cryonic Woman.

Devotees of the show will know which characters of which I refer.

Alcohol fuels his power cells.

Who's the worst character?

Are you serious? Is this someone's fake account trying to instigate an argument?
