Cartoons Comics & Toons


Futurama is an American animated television series created by Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons) and David X. Cohen (also a writer for The Simpsons). Set in "New New York City" in the 31st century, it was introduced on the Fox Network and received airplay between March 28, 1999 and August 10, 2003. It is currently in syndication on the Adult Swim segment of Cartoon Network in the United States, on Teletoon in Canada, on Channel 4, Sky One, Sky Two and Sky Three in the UK, and on Fox8 and Network Ten in Australia.
On January 19, 2006, Billy West (the voice actor who plays Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, and various other characters) announced in a post to the message board of his official website that the Futurama team would be producing four new, direct-to-DVD movies beginning in July or August of 2006. This has yet to be confirmed by Fox.
The series begins with Philip J. Fry, a New York City slacker and pizza delivery man, who is cryogenically frozen by accident on New Year's Eve, 1999. He is defrosted one thousand years later on New Years Eve, 2999 and finds himself in New New York City. Fry thinks he has a chance at a new life, only to get himself permanently assigned a career as a delivery boy. Fry's attempts to escape from his now-mandatory job assignment end at Planet Express, a small intergalactic package delivery company run by his distantly descended nephew, where he is hired on as a delivery boy. The series covers the adventures of Fry and his colleagues as they travel around the universe making deliveries on behalf of Planet Express.
The futuristic time frame allowed the show's writers to be creative with their humor by introducing ideas and events from pulp science fiction of the mid 20th century into the series.
