* RecycledScript: "[[Recap/FuturamaS7E7TheSixMillionDollarMon The Six Million Dollar Mon]]" had a plot very similar to the ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'' episode "Farewell, 2 Arms"; both episodes involve a character obtaining a replacement for one of their body parts, then they begin replacing more of their body with new parts until eventually they attempt to complete their transformation by replacing their brain or their entire head. In the end, the character's consciousness is put into their reassembled old body while the body made with new parts becomes a separate entity and antagonizes them.

** "[[Recap/FuturamaS6E4PropositionInfinity Proposition Infinity]]" is about the efforts to allow robosexual marriage as an analogy to same sex marriage. In 2016 in the United States, a federal ruling allowed same sex marriage across all the states, rendering the topical nature of the episode dated.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Eric Rogers revealed that they considered making a {{claymation}} segment for "[[Recap/FuturamaS6E26Reincarnation Reincarnation]]" but didn't due to time constraints and money issues.
** Zapp Brannigan was intended to be played by Creator/PhilHartman, but Hartman's death at the hands of his own wife destroyed any chance of that, so Creator/BillyWest voiced the character with the same kind of smugness you'd expect from a {{jerkass}} Phil Hartman character.
** Fry originally had "Curtis" as his given name, but was renamed "Phillip" in honor of Phil Hartman. He was also originally going to be a 35-year-old who was born and had always lived in the future, but that was changed to make him more relatable to the target audience.
** Fry and Leela were originally supposed to be played by Creator/CharlieSchlatter (from ''18 Again!'', ''Series/DiagnosisMurder'', and ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed'') and Creator/NicoleSullivan ([[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Shego]], [[WesternAnimation/CloneHigh Joan of Arc]] and best known as the Vancome Lady from ''Series/{{MADtv}}'') respectively.
** According to Creator/BillyWest, [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Ryan]] [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow Stiles]] auditioned to be Dr. Zoidberg, and, [[http://robpaulsenlive.com/episode-47-guest-john-dimaggio/ in his interview with John DiMaggio]], Creator/RobPaulsen reveals that he auditioned for Fry. Creator/JohnDiMaggio originally auditioned for Farnsworth, and David X. Cohen considered doing Bender's voice by himself.
** Bender was initially designed with antennae on each side of his head, which would have functioned as ears. Several episodes have referenced this unused idea via DevelopmentGag.
** Hermes was originally going to have the Brain Slug on his head for all of season two instead of just "[[Recap/FuturamaS2E8RagingBender Raging Bender]]".
** According to Lauren Tom, Amy was initially written with a relatively [[TheLadette masculine personality and job]], which would have made her border on AmbiguouslyLesbian. She was rewritten as a GirlyGirl in order to provide a better contrast between her and Leela, who was already a {{Tomboy}} to begin with.
** Hermes was originally going to be named Dexter.
** Mom was originally intended to be the dictator of Earth in the setting, but as the concept developed, she was slowly pushed to the sides until she basically became an AdvertisedExtra.
** In Zapp Brannigan's introductory episode, "[[Recap/FuturamaS1E4LovesLaborsLostInSpace Love's Labors Lost in Space]]", he was supposed to get fatter every time he reappeared on screen, but the animators were too disgusted by the results to do it.
** "[[Recap/FuturamaS3E19RoswellThatEndsWell Roswell that Ends Well]]" was originally written as a WhatIf short for "[[Recap/FuturamaS3E18AnthologyOfInterestII Anthology of Interest II]]", but was cut after the story got long enough to be its own episode.
** In "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E7JurassicBark Jurassic Bark]]", Fry's ''mother'' was originally going to be the fossilized remnant from Fry's past that he tries to revive, only to stop at the last minute, but the writers and producers rejected it as being more depressing than the dog story, ''somehow''. The writers did end up making an episode where Fry reunites with his mother again ("Game of Tones") and it's just as tearjerking as this episode.
** Throughout the first two seasons, there are cameo appearances by an elderly man with the number 9 on his shirt. Initially, he was supposed to represent a fictional caste system in which a person's number determined their social status. However, this idea was abandoned and, when the same character got a major role in the fourth film, [[YouAreNumberSix the number served as his given name]] instead.
