What family traits have you noticed in both Fry and the Professor? So far, I've noticed his hair colour (and style in ABPOG), and the fact that they are both attracted to dominant women (Michelle, Mom).

Anybody else?

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

Farnsworth's direct ancestor, Yancy, got all the dominant genes. Fry got all the flawed, recessive genes. Can you understand what it's like to know that you're garbage since the day you were born!?!
And that's why they're nothing alike really. Actually, I just saw an excuse for an MGS quote, so I took it. Ha.

Is that possible ? Since they have the same parents shouldn't they have pretty similar dominants and recessivses in their genes ?

While I am no Geneticist (I don't think I can even spell it), I think it is possible for Fry to get all the recessive genes. Both parents would have to have it and the dominant genes. Or something like that. They might have Dr and Dr genes. D being Dominant and r being recessive. This would enable Fry to possibly get all the recessive traits. Of course I might be all wrong about this.

I'm not sure that this has any direct bearing on the discussion, but Fry, being Yancy's grandfather as well as his own, is also the Professor's direct ancestor.

Whether they're smart or stupid, young or old, Philip and Farnsworth both have an inscrutable touch of madness in them that link them through time. And they're both fsckin' funny, which I doubt can be explained by genetics.

Fry is interested in robots and sci fi sort of stuff,which could explain the proffeser's intrest in building robots(from COTH).

This may sound CRAZY, but there is a slight likeness in their voices!

I dunno about that Spacedal11.

Remember from "the Sting" during Fry's funeral when the Amazon woman says "He do good snu-snu" and it pans to all the girls(and radiator) he did the nasty with. They didn't look to satisfied, neither did the Radiator.

But he did it to them. I'm saying that they both made love whether the girls liked it or not.

Does "THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS FUTURAMA" have a J in his name because he uses it alot with his characters

Example: Homer J. Simpson

In the ep "A Clone of my Own" when the guys go to the Near Death Star, when they find the prof. grave thingy. The enscription reads, "Hubert J. Farnsworth". Yup!

It's been established that the characters' middle initials being J comes from Bullwinkle J. Moose and Rocket J. Squirrel, who were, in turn, named after their creator, Jay Ward.  I don't know what Matt Groening's middle name is, though.

As far as I know, the characters on Groening's shows with the middle initial J are Homer J. Simpson (his full middle name being Jay, as established in "D'oh-in' in the Wind" ), Abraham J. Simpson, Mona J. Simpson (Homer's mom), Bartholomew J. Simpson (the J stands for "Jo-Jo," according to Nancy Cartwright, but this has never been stated on the show), Philip J. Fry, and Hubert J. Farnsworth.  Am I missing any?
