Futurama's hero is Philip Fry, a lazy and idiotic deliveryman for the chronically clumsy Planet Express delivery service. Over the many seasons, I thought they had truly shown the worst deliveryman imaginable. That's until I saw Johnny Express. The short film created by AlfredImageWorks has this description:
It's 2150. There are all sorts of Aliens living throughout space. Johnny is a Space Delivery Man who travels to different planets to deliver packages. Johnny is lazy and his only desire is to sleep in his autopilot spaceship. When the spaceship arrives at the destination, all he has to do is simply deliver the box. However, it never goes as planned. Johnny encounters strange and bizarre planets and always seems to cause trouble on his delivery route.
It seems like this is intended to be a series character. I'm not sure it would hold up as a TV show, but I thought this short film is brilliant and more than a little disturbing.

He only annihilated the race and destroyed their planet while delivering that package...

It could have been great Ms. Mariah. It should have been! But someone beat everyone on the film with the stupid stick.
