For a comedy show set in a distant future where cancer is cured and robots do half the work, Futurama is a remarkably sad show. Entire planets are destroyed, evil corporate moguls exploit alien races, and thousands of innocent military men die due to the negligence of Commander Zapp Brannigan. There’s no shortage of dark twists in the sci-fi animated show’s stories.
Yet, there is one character that takes the cake when it comes to sadness. Sure, he has his cheery moments, but his life is still a mess. Seriously, if the Olympics held a competition for being the most pathetic, he would win.
