Interesting Facts about Futurama

Now, let’s have a look at some interesting facts about Futurama, and what made it so popular and fun to watch.

  1. The Name of the Show Comes from the 1939 New York World Fair Exhibit – During the 1939 World Fair that was held in New York, General Motors established an attraction by the name of Futurama. It was a scale-model city that showed how life may be lived during the 1960s. The model was 35,000 square feet, showing the people at the exhibit how life may be lived in the future. Among the details were skyscrapers and superhighways connected between them with future General Motors cars. People would take a sit on a chair that moved around the great model, enjoying the show and having a glimpse at all the wonders of the future, according to General Motors.
  2. Getting Futurama on the Air Was Extremely Difficult – Unlike The Simpsons, which Matt Groening is one of its creators, getting the show Futurama on air was very difficult. The moment they ordered it, the network started thinking that maybe it was too dark and mean, and were sure that they have made a huge mistake. From that moment on, anxiety took place. Groening and his team fought for the show and he himself accepted to take all the blame if the show failed. Luckily for him and all of us, the show was a great success.
  3. The Inspiration for the Theme Song of the Show Came from a Tube Called “Psyche Rock” – Christopher Tyng is the person in-charge for the main theme of the show, but if you listen closely, you may notice that it resembles a song by the name of “Psyche Rock” by Pierre Henry, a French electronic composer and artist. You may say that the Futurama theme is a remix to Henry’s work, as they resemble each other so very much.
  4. One of the Show’s Creators is Actually a Math Genius – David S. Cohen who is among the creators of the show is a math genius and was the one person Groening wanted in his team for the show. Being a math savvy, Cohen dealt with sci-fi plots brilliantly and brought authenticity to some complex and interesting episodes of the show. Cohen holds a degree in physics from Harvard and also an M.S. in computer science from California University.
  5. A New Theorem Was Invented Just for Futurama – While writing an episode for the show, writers and creators created a plot so complex, that even they eventually got lost in it and were stumped. “The Prisoner of Brenda” that aired on season 6 of the show involves a machine that is able to swap minds of two people, but the problem was that once used, it was impossible to use the machine again to swap the two minds back. Which means that other characters will have to be paired many times in a roundabout plan. This plane will result in the restoration of their minds in their original bodies. Cohen said that they have to come up with a mathematical explanation that would solve the problem and get everyone’s mind back.
    Still lost in thought what to do, it was writer Ken Keeler who saved the day, thanks to his PhD in mathematics. He simply decided to create a special theorem that would prove that everything that took place in the episode was in fact possible. The next morning he came back with a bunch of papers and proved that regardless where the brains currently are, an addition of a couple of new, unswtiched people ensures that everyone (including those two) gets their brain back.
  6. It Took Approximately a Year for Each Episode to be Completed – Each and every episode of the show took a lot of work and sweat in order to be completed. Believe it or not, but it took almost a year for each episode to be done from start to finish. How exactly does this process go? It starts with an idea for an episode. Then this idea is assigned to the writer or writers for an outline and a first draft. Next, this first draft is being carefully dissected in the writers’ room, and that means word by word, scene by scene. Once this is stage is done, the actors then record the text and then it’s time for the animators to do their job. Animatics and final animation can take even half a year to finalize.
  7. The Episodes of Futurama Were Broadcast Out of Order – It seems that over the years, Fox network has decided that different shows, like Futurama and The X-Files won’t air as intended. For Futurama, there never was a season that had an entire production cycle. For example, there are 13 episodes in season 1 of the show, but only 9 of them were aired. As for the rest of the 4 episodes of the first season, they aired only the following year, during the second season.
  8. The Creators of the Show Were Fined Because They Had Too Many Characters – WHAT?? YES! You read it right. Futurama had close to 100 recurring characters. So, what is it all about getting fined? You see, during the end of the movie based on the show, “Into The Wild Green Yonder”, the creators of the show had an idea to fit every character they have ever made in Futurama in one shot. That is more than 250 characters on screen, all at once! That is why Rough Draft Studios decided to fine them for wasting the time of the animators and maybe even hurting some wrists along the way.
  9. There Are Things in the Show That You’ll Never Notice – Aside from the “regular” and casual sight gags, there are a lot of things in the show that you may never notice, including different jokes and small touches that the creators inserted into the episodes and show. In the first episode of the show, Fry lands in the future and the date is December 31, 2999. While he and Bender are running away from Leela, they get to the Head Museum, where Bender tells Fry to go inside as it’s free on Tuesdays.
    If you check, then you’ll notice that December 31, 2999 indeed falls on Tuesday. There are other jokes including binary code. One of them is the number of Bender’s apartment door, which is 00100100. This number is binary for the $ symbol. Another example comes from the episode “The Honking” (season 2, episode 18) where the binary code 1010011010 is written on the mirror, which means 666. There are other smart and small jokes inserted in the show, including history jokes. See if you can spot them…
  10. The Creators of the Show Came Up with Two Alien Languages – If you look carefully, you may notice that across the backgrounds of many shows, there are signs and billboards that are written in a strange language, an alien language. This language actually has a name and it is called “Alienese”, a language that is made of code. You may find the original language right in the pilot of the show, as it appears on an advertisement that reads “Drink Slurm” in English, but beneath it are alien glyphs. The second language is way more complicated than the first, but eventually, fans were able to decipher both alien languages.
