Futurama is Matt Groenings
latest creation. Many of you are familiar with Matts previous work with
the Simpsons and maybe even Life In Hell.
Futurama began on December 31,
1999, when Fry delivers a pizza to a cryogenics lab for someone named I.C.
Weiner (a prank). He accidentally gets cryogenically frozen and wakes
up one thousand years into the future.
Leela, a one-eyed career officer,
runs tests on Fry and was about to install his career chip. Fry is frightened
by his permanent career and the process of inserting the chip so he runs off.
Fry has no place to go, so he
decides to find his great-great-great-great-great grand nephew, Professor Hubert
Fansworth. He mistakes a Suicide Booth for a phone booth, and thats where
he meets a robot named Bender.
Fry and Bender quickly become
friends, but Frys tour of New New York is cut short when Leela catches
up to him. But Fry makes her realize that shes not happy with her job,
so she removes her own career chip.
Now, everyone is jobless and in
search of money, so they find Frys nephew. The professor doesnt
give them money, but offers them a job working for Planet Express,
an intergalactic delivery service.
Each episode is a science fiction
adventure. Theyll discover new worlds, and Fry will continually try to
get used to the 31st century.
