Crazy Credits

During the opening, old 1930's cartoons are played on a giant monitor and are different each time. In the episode "Roswell That Ends Well", the cartoon featured in the opening was played in the episode on a small TV. Also when the title appears, a new message appears every time.

Though the cartoons shown on the giant monitor are usually old, vintage cartoons (most likely public domain), on at least one instance a clip from a Simpsons short (from the Tracey Ullman Show) was used (Matt Groening created both Futurama and the Simpsons).

In syndication, the 30th Century Fox logo made for the show is typically followed by a regular "20th Century Fox Television" logo.

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".
