Professor Farnsworth

Professor Ogden Wernstrom (born August 13, 2883) is a scientist and professor at Mars University. He is one of the main antagonists in Futurama.


Wernstrom is arrogant, cocky and self-absorbed. He thinks highly of himself, and can't accept failure. He is also shown to be extremely jealous.

Physical Appearance

Wernstrom is a thin, old man with grey hair and liver spots, much like Farnsworth. He keeps his hair tied up in a small ponytail and is usually seen wearing his labcoat over a teal sweater. 

Rivalry with Hubert

A century ago, Wernstrom was a promising student of Professor Farnsworth, but became his bitter enemy when he gave him an A- on a test, the reason being poor penmanship. He declared that he would have his revenge on Hubert even if it took 100 years, which he eventually did in "A Big Piece of Garbage".

The rivals temporarily became friends when the Anomaly appeared in the events of "The Beast with a Billion Backs", but fell out and became bitter enemies again.


In Bender's Game, it is revealed that he has also been married to Mom multiple times and may be the father of Walt and Larry.





  • He is most likely based on Gunnar Nordström, who was one of Albert Einstein's rivals. This would suggest that he is of Scandinavian descent.
