A large portion of the original writing staff had college-level educations; they left all potential breaks from reality up to the RuleOfFunny and inserted numerous [[GeniusBonus mathematical, engineering, and scientific jokes]] (ranging from subtle to extremely obscure) into the show.

The show's original run on Creator/{{Fox}} lasted from 1999 to 2003; the network cited disappointing ratings as the reason for its cancellation, but the creative staff cited its [[FridayNightDeathSlot poor timeslot]]. After years of being kept on life support by Creator/AdultSwim, the show returned with four direct-to-DVD movies released between 2007 and 2009 (later syndicated as a sixteen-episode "fifth season,") then ComedyCentral properly {{Uncanceled}} the series in 2010 after ratings improved in syndication. [[note]]So, references to "Season 6" on this page refer to the 2010 season, even though the DVD releases and Netflix label it "Season 5."[[/note]]

''Futurama'' has a well-established {{canon}} -- which plays into numerous episodes at times -- and the occasional dramatic moment hidden amidst the comedy. Episodes notable for such moments include "RoswellThatEndsWell," "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E10TheWhyOfFry The Why of Fry]]," "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E12TheSting The Sting]]," "[[Recap/FuturamaS3E4LuckOfTheFryish Luck of the Fryrish]]," "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E7JurassicBark Jurassic Bark]]" (whose DownerEnding had the producers getting hate mail from viewers who had cried), and "[[Recap/FuturamaS6E10ThePrisonerOfBenda The Prisoner of Benda]]" (which invented ''a new mathematical theorem for brain switching'').
