Fry, a young Everyman, finds himself accidentally transported 1,000 years in the future. Just like right now, life in the future is a complex mix of the wonderful and horrible, where things are still laughable no matter how crazy they get. And against a backdrop of pesky aliens, exasperating robots, and malfunctioning gadgets, people still struggle with the same daily anxieties of life and love . . . and, of course, traffic is still a nightmare! In the fifth season, Bender grows jealous when Fry attempts to clone his beloved fossilized dog; when Kif gets pregnant, Amy questions her readiness to become a parent; when Fry and Leela discover a mysterious cream that gives them unusual powers, they form a Superhero team along with Bender; and Fry makes a deal with the Robot Devil so he can become a skillful musician and win Leela's heart. Matt Groening (The Simpsons) is creator and executive producer of Futurama.
