Yep indeed, and even weirder:
The first television exhibit at the world's fair was called "Futurama".
All that is some trivia you can know and get about Futurama if you listen carefully to the DVD commentaries... or if you are a "nerdlinger".
Welcome to PEEL fishboner, and the other's that I didn't greet yet.
Like I said, it is well known trivia for most of us amd it surely has been posted some times earlier as well. I don't know the chance for sure, but it can happen that out of that reason your thread doesn't survive, but get's closed once a mod comes around. It is actually up to them.
a thread where it was mention before would be this for example: http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/1-000826/#t23
You see how old it is, November of 2001.
There is a lot more trivia to learn, just take a look into other threads and use the search function to gain wisdom about Futurama.
Be sure to use the search function anyway before
opening new threads, because most of the time it has already been asked, or started to be discussed.
In case you need any more help on how to get along here, I recommend you to read our FAQ, the PEELers' FAQ
. A quite easy read, covering everything that is important, such as usage of codes, and few rules.
After all, enjoy your stay.
