'Futurama' has had many incarnations over the years, refusing to stay down for too long thanks to the passionate support of its legions of fans. The animated sci-fi comedy series, created by Matt Groening, first aired from March 1999 to August 2003 on Fox. It aired in reruns on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim from January 2003 to December 2007, with several direct-to-DVD films being produced. Finally, Comedy Central began airing the show in January 2008, with new episodes premiering in March of that year.

Often referred to as the "punk cousin" of Groening's 'The Simpsons,' 'Futurama' centers on the character of Philip J. Fry, a pizza delivery boy who was cryogenically frozen at midnight on January 1, 2000, and awakened on New Year's Eve, 2999.
