Professor William Brandywine is a character in Monsters University.[1] His body is round and entirely covered with yellow fur, while his eyes and mouth are almost enitrely hidden under brown eyebrows and a mustache. He works at the Monsters University's School of Engineering, where he teaches Scream Canister Design. He is a very boring and emotionless professor, who delivers his class with the same monotone and tired voice, without doing the smallest movement.

Following their failure at the School of Scaring on their first semester, Mike and Sulley switch their major to Scream Can Design, much to their unhappiness.


  • Don Carlton is the character model for Professor Brandywine. Artists just added fur.[2]
  • Brandywine bears some resemblance to the Swedish Chef and Fozzie Bear, both from The Muppet Show.
  • His last name is a mix of Brandy and Wine (obviously), which are both alcoholic beverages.
  • Professor Brandywine was storyboarded with a bow tie by Brian Fee, which is why he has a bow tie in the movie.
