I have a strong feeling it would be remembered. Because it's a cartoon, made by Matt Groening the guy who made the Simpsons. So I guess Futurama would be still (showing it on TV) and references of it in future TV shows a thousand years from now, where let's say we live in a similar future to Futurama, (people who like history would like to watch Futurama as well as those who don't really like it, and there would obviously be books,documentaries movies about Fry's time.). And also if we keep doing more crazy stuff (not too crazy mind you.) like Futurama fan art, and statues of Bender around the world and other stuff.

1000 years from now, Futurama will be a small footer in history.  Besides, how will ideals be remembered if no one is there to remember them?  The containers with which we take for granted will not exist in the same manner in a different time, different places from the psyche they currently reside.

1000 years is a long time.  Think of how far our technology has advanced in the last 100 years; in the last ten!  Humanity as we know it may not even exist at that time.  We may become a small footer in history, or perhaps evolve past the need for physical forms.

or perhaps evolve past the need for physical forms.

While the rest could happen like mankind extinct, however unlikely. But unless we did crazy genetic engineering we woudn't change that much in a thousand years, in a few million years maybe. And they would still like to know about the past.

REMEMBER ME!

In 1000 years there will be Bender dolls alongside Bart Simpson dolls on that big ball of garbage. So in a way it will be remembered smile

Cartoons live forever, all it takes is a few future nerds to go around posting (saying) : Hey looks at this old show Futurama from a 1000 years ago!

Maybe if a few nerds did say 'Hey look at this show from 1000 years ago', everone would hate it, because of two reasons:
1. Comedy might have severly changed since now
2. No one would be able to watch it without lag, or freezing because they'd have to pull out an old dusty DVD player, or cable box, which would be so obscelete it wouldn't work. Or no one would be able to find anything to play it on.

Or maybe theyd buy it on eBay LOL  smile

I think that Futurama would be great enough to convert it so it can be watched on the ZingaMax player.

Will it be remembered historically? Probably, in the same way that we remember really old books and stories It'll likely be in the basement of some historical archive only known to a few people. Look at Shakespeare, that wasn't even a thousand years ago and he's considered one of the greatest writers of all time but beyond the famous lines how much of his work is common knowledge?

Hey, if we keep sites like this alive we might just have a shot.

Fox will try their best to erase Futurama from history. As they did before.

Of course it will be remembered!  Also, it will be renewed, because it has such a huge fanbase!  So it can never be given up on nor forgotten about!

In a thousand years, people might remember it. But in thirty thousand, even our bones will be dust, and the world will bear no traces of our ever having been here.

In the year 2525,
Will Futurama still be alive?
Will Bender still be smoking a cigar,
And will Fry and Leela be heads in a jar?

In the year 3535,
Will Planet Express have a chance to thrive?
Big green ship making deliveries,
Breaking all space and time boundaries.

In the year 4545,
Will New New York still be there to survive?
Mayor Poopenmeyer's face on the hundred-dollar bill,
The new motto "Where there's a way there's a will"?

In the year 5555,
Will all our minds be stored inside an archive?
We walk and talk with television characters,
In real life, the world's run by huge computers?

We still watch old silent movies from 100 years ago.

We still study human history from even further back.

I think it might be a niche interest, but it'll still be around and watched.

Now, think a million years and things start to get interesting.

Humanity is only right at the beginning of it's journey at this point in time.

Remember, only 6,000 years ago and we were still savages living in caves... practically nothing on an evolutionary scale.

In the year one million, assuming there isn't any giraffe-slavery going on, futurama may not exist, or remaining copies of it would probably be looked at in the same way that we look at cave paintings today... creative, but ultimately primitive.

There won't be any forms of entertainment like that in the year one million. I doubt there will be humanoids. in a few thousand years if we don't kill each other by then everything will be beamed direcly to our brains. you will pay for said entertainment through your own mind. the more efficient your synapses are the more spending power you have.

If we remember Shakespeare's work... why not Groening's?

'Did you just compare Matt Groening to William Shakespeare?! YOU DESERVE TO BE HANGED TO THE Nth DEGREE!!! mad'

Plus, considering how long The Simpsons has been around, it's bound to be on until Matt passes. And a few seasons after that. Fox knows not when to kill a beast nor when to let a gifted child-gem to continue to live.

Twenty thousand years. That's roughly how long we've got. I have good, scientific reasons for giving this length of time, but I'll let other people figure it out for themselves. The logical conclusion to the human race is quite a shocker when you think it through. Ten thousand years after that, and all physical traces of humanity will have vanished. Maybe other forms of intelligent life will arise between then and the expansion of the sun, but that's about as likely as us colonising other worlds - here's a hint: I don't think we will.

To paraphrase Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz, "Apathetic bloody race. I've no sympathy at all."

I'd like to read what you have to say on that subject and where your reasoning is for that conclusion at some point in time tnuk.

It seems rather sound though from just reading the simple conclusion by itself.

I apologize in advance for being pedantic, but in evolutionary terms, we are equally advanced today as we were 6,000 years ago. Sociologically and technologically we've progressed, but as far as genetically adapting to our environment, if we were nothing then, then we are still nothing now.

I understand this may sound confrontational, but it's nothing malicious. I really am being friendly.

There will still be a few traces, but yeah, the Earth will have erased nearly everything.  I think that the pyramids, the Crazy Horse sculpture, Mount Rushmore, etc. will still be around in 30k years.   And lots of artifacts to dig up.  In North America, the forests will have reclaimed nearly everything but there will still be scattered remnants of civilization, especially in the desert areas, at least until the rains return.

I think it will be remembered by a very small niche, but look at how many people today don't even know what Futurama is. There will probably be a few that enjoy the show on whatever medium is around in a thousand years time, it's hard to say. There will likely be a lot more people on the planet then too...

It will always have a place in history though I'm sure. Plus, we still enjoy things today from many years ago, so unless humanity manages to wipe itself out I suspect it'll still be around in some cult form...
