Pazuzu is Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth's gargoyle. He is dark red with dark purple wings, yellow eyes and light red horns. He escapes Professor Farnsworth and flies off to an unknown place. Professor Farnsworth goes after him but then forgets and Pazuzu isn't then mentioned until the end of the episode. When Professor Farnsworth is drowning in the Fountain of Aging, he appears from under the Planet Express ship's starboard wing and dives into the fountain and saves Professor Farnsworth. He grants the Professor three wishes for putting him through college, one of which was to get him out of the Fountain of Aging in "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" and the second to get him out of prison in "The Beast with a Billion Backs", which he does. He currently lives in Paris.

Trivia Edit

  • Since Pazuzu was giving Professor Farnsworth three wishes, it is presumed that Pazuzu's race acts like genies as genies are seen granting three wishes.
  • Pazuzu apparently speaks French, as he tells his son "Bonne Nuit", meaning good night. This is especially noteworthy since in the 31st Century, French is considered a long dead language.
  • Pazuzu is the name of Babylonian God Hanbi's son and King of the Wind Demons in both Babylonian and Assyrian mythologies. He is sometimes called "Fazuzu" or "Pazuza". This is referenced when at the end of "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles", Pazuzu shows his glowing eyes (a demonic sign) to the audience. Also, the Professor refers to him as "Fiend" at times, but whether this means he is an actual demon is currently undetermined.
  • The Eiffel Tower in the last shot of "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" (as well as Pazuzu's relocation to Paris) is likely a reference to Jacques Tardi' 1976 Graphic novel The Demon of the Eiffel Tower, where heroine Adèle Blanc-Sec is haunted by Pazuzu.
