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.
His body is round and entirely covered with fur, leaving his eyes and mouth almost invisible. William Brandywine's fur is yellow and his eyebrows are brown.
- Don Carlton is the character model for Professor Brandywine. Artists just added fur.
- Brandywine bears somewhat resemblance to the Sweedish Chef and Fozzie Bear, both from The Muppet Show.
