Dr. Ben Beeler is a scientist in Futurama. He has an interest in fossilized dogs and giant alien spiders. In 3010, he had queued the eyePhone, spoke about Homo farnsworth at the World Bone Premiere, and participated in the Comic-Con Intergalactic costume contest, dressing as the Robot Devil. In 3013, he helped Bender fulfill his folk-singing dreams with his 3D printer, and later that same year he and his wife were rescued from a fire by Bender.
His name is a play on writer Ken Keeler, who also has a PhD.
