Storyline

Phillip Fry is a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy whose life is going nowhere. When he accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999, he wakes up 1,000 years in the future and has a chance to make a fresh start. He goes to work for the Planet Express Corporation, a futuristic delivery service that transports packages to all five quadrants of the universe. His companions include the delivery ship's captain, Leela, a beautiful one-eyed female alien who kicks some serious butt, and Bender, a robot with very human flaws. Written by Ronos

Trivia

Matt Groening has said that he got the idea for the show from listening to a song by the Incredible String Band called "Robot Blues." See more »

Goofs

In many episodes the Earth's knowledge of things that have happened in the past is lacking, due to an apparent loss of historical documents throughout time (for example, in Season 1 Episode 2 "The Series Has Landed" it is made clear humans don't know the exact details of the first moon landing, or in Season 5 Episode 2 "Jurassic Bark" it is unclear how a 20th century pizzeria operated,) yet many people from Fry's time period are still alive, such as Richard Nixon or Leonard Nimoy's head. Also, even though characters do not know the details of important events in or before the 20th century, many characters make references to popular songs of the past (William Shatner in Season 4 Episode 12 "Where No Fan Has Gone Before", Kif in Season 3 Episode 5 "Amazon Women In The Mood".)

Quotes

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: No! I was about to close the deal!
Fry: Bender! They had a backwards time machine!

Crazy Credits

Occasionally, before the opening credit sequence begins, the show will be "sponsored" by a futuristic sponsor advertisement. For example, "Futurama is brought to you by Glagnar's Human Rinds." The show always begins with a parody of the "Transmitted in SAP" type of show disclaimers when the title "Futurama" appears. For example, "As Seen on TV" or "Present in BC (Brain Control) Where Available". See more »

"Now Zoidberg is the popular one!"
8 November 2004 | by (the minds of the weak.) – See all my reviews

man, this show was freaking awesome, so of course it got canned. it was funny, had great characters, wonderful dialouge and was way too good for TV. In fact, at times I find myself enjoying this show more then the simpsons. I find myself enjoying the antics of the characters more. so if i had to choose i would say this is more entertaining then the simpsons. although the simpsons had more better side characters (although zapp brannagin and his alien sidekick are friggin hilarious) in the end, i would advise anyone looking for a laugh to catch reruns whenever you can or buy the dvds. I don't think you'll be disappointed. a wonderful show canned way too soon.
