** The CouchGag from the final original series episode? [[UnCancelled "See you on]] [[ChannelHop some other channel."]] Doubly hilarious, considering that ''Futurama'' went from being rerun on Creator/CartoonNetwork to rerun (and revived) on Comedy Central, and triply hilarious now that Comedy Central canceled it and there's a lot of rumors that the show will once again be revived somewhere else.

* FanficFuel: One issue of the comic books indicates that foiling [[spoiler: and then assisting]] the Zookeeper was not the only adventure that Fry, Leela, and Bender had as the New Justice Team. Who knows what other adventures they had with their superpowers?



* MemeticMutation:
** A screengrab of Fry squinting suspiciously at Flexo is used for not one, but ''two'' memes: "Fry sees what you did there" and "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/futurama-fry-not-sure-if-x Not sure if...]]" This died down a little after it became an AscendedMeme by Comedy Central.
** "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n5E7feJHw0 "Ahahahahaha... oh wait, you're serious. Let me laugh even harder! AAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!]]
** "Why not Zoidberg?"
** [[VoodooShark "That just raises further questions!"]]
** "I'm gonna build my own <noun>, with blackjack, and hookers! In fact, forget the <noun>!"
** I'm shocked. Shocked!... Well, not that shocked."
** "Good news, everyone!"

** Could Hubert Farnsworth secretly be a BitchInSheepsClothing? A lot of his actions cause problems, and it is hinted that he has multiple doomsday devices. He cheerfully sends the Planet Express crew on very dangerous missions, his company's slogan says that all crews are expendable and this is not his first crew. Also, the Professor once had a relationship with Mom, and even created albino atomic apes for the sole purpose of proclaiming his love for her. Furthermore, Farnsworth presents himself as a fairly nice person in the pilot, but later on is quite mean to Fry. Considering all these facts, Hubert's charming and harmless-seeming senility could be just a very good act. Alternatively, maybe he ''is'' genuinely going senile but remains an amoral madman underneath.

* {{Anvilicious}}: ''Into the Wild Green Yonder'', with heavily pro-feminist and pro-environment messages, can come across as this.
** Alternatively [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagged]] or [[DoubleSubversion double-subverted]], as the eco-feminists come off half the time as well-intentioned heroes, and the other half as disorganized, overzealous morons.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: In "The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz", the necessity of hunting. Following an extreme population explosion of penguins, an open season is declared to save the population from mass starvation. Exhaustion of food sources, along with a host of other undesirable side-effects (such as loss of conservation/anti-poaching revenues and increased human contact) are real issues that come with reductions in hunting.

* SeasonalRot: The ComedyCentral episodes and made-for-DVD movies are viewed by some as inferior to the earlier FOX episodes.

* NewerThanTheyThink: The "Do you remember [X]? Pepperidge Farm remembers." joke had been done in "A Fishful of Dollars", seven years before ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' did it in "Hell Comes to Quahog".

** Cubert is another in-universe example and he is also rather disliked by fans. The thing is, [[IntendedAudienceReaction the creators]] ''[[IntendedAudienceReaction intended]]'' [[IntendedAudienceReaction him to be unlikable]] as a parody of a CreatorsPet.

* BrokenBase: The made-for-DVD movies and the Comedy Central episodes. Either they're just as good as the FOX episodes or they're an inferior copy of the infinitely better FOX run. Ditto the first couple episodes, where the voice acting was kinda off (especially for Bender), everyone's characterizations weren't fully developed, and most people thought the show was SoOkayItsAverage (or dismissed it as "''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in space").
