Futurama Wiki

Dr. Banjo is a super intelligent orangutan and scientist, and the son of "hard-working, patriotic orangutans", and wears a brown jacket and a pair of glasses. He apparently knows Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth and is one of the leaders of the anti-evolution manifestants who blocked the Wozniak Nerd Academy in August of 3010. The doctor confronted Professor Farnsworth with creationism, but was later convinced that Evolution may be the answer, after having been set in motion by a powerful alien, or a deity, that is.

By 3013, he lives on Simian 7 and is the director of the City Zoo.

Trivia

  • He is possibly modeled after Dr. Zaius from the 1968 film Planet of the Apes, which was also referenced in "The Late Philip J. Fry". Both orangutans share a strict stance against theories of evolution and are the main antagonists of their stories.
