|“||There's only three real monsters, kid: Dracula, Blacula and Son of Kong. Now quit picking your nose and knead that dough!||”|
–Mr. Pannucci, Anthology of Interest I
Mr. Panucci (born August 11, 1946 - September 27, 2012) was the owner and operator of Panucci's Pizza. He had a loud and surly demeanor, and had little regard for hygiene. He would sneeze in the pizza dough, rub dough on a dog and use a pepperoni sausage to scratch his back. It's shown several time's on the show he has became a victim of prank calls by people who trick him into making pizza for fake costumers with extremely lousy fake names and always fails to notice the hint that it was a prank, showing the viewer that he lacks any common sense. Panucci believed that only three monsters existed: Dracula, Blackula and Son of Kong. He also believed that Fry would be a delivery boy for the rest of his life. He also has a cousin who owns a ship, Leroy.
It is likely that Mr. Panucci died when Bender destroyed the building after he went back in time to attempt to kill Fry. Although Fry escaped and became Lars the building can clearly be seen exploding as Fry is escaping and due to the fact Mr. Panucci is extremely sick and needs to use a wheelchair it is unlikely that he managed to escape. Like Bender and Yancy Fry, Sr., Mr. Panucci is voiced by John DiMaggio.
