El Chupanebre

Legendary monster who terrifies the mutants in the sewers beneath NNY. He comes in the night and eats people, not the sort you would invite to a party. He nearly ate Leela but happily he was flushed down a giant toilet into the subsewer by Bender. Perhaps he is now causing havoc with the lives of subsewer mutants?

I'm too lazy to edit: Here's another. Mine had better make it into the Encyclopedia, they took at least 10 mins to type.

Space Wasp *killed* Old PE Delivery Crew
Space Wasp
A mysterios insect, this organism is responsible for the deaths of the second most recent crew of the PE Delivery company. It is assumed that the insect was caught and dissected, as the career chips of the crew were removed from the beast's stomach, however there may be more out there in the black vastness of space. Only time will tell if the current crew will fall prey to the same fate.

Old PE Delivery Crew(s)
The past crews of the PE Delivey companys intergalactic ship have not all been as lucky as the current unfortunate set of misfits. Of these foolhardy men and women, Captaim Musky is the one in the best condition. Alive. Barely. He communicates through electronic beeps, and is confined to his hoverchair by life-support equipment encasing his entire body. He hasn't let his infirmities get the best of him, and is still hot stuff at parties, as seen at the Professors Seqicentennial borthday party, shortly before Farnsworth's abduction by the Sunset Sqaud Robots.

Sunset Squad Robots *took* The Professor
The SSR are a crack sqaud of of droids designed to contain the ageing population of Eatth from the overpopulated planet itself. They inhait the Near Death Star, where their inmates are hooked up to a virtual facility for their care and confinement

Near Death Star *home of* Sunset Sqaud Robots

The Near Death Star is a vast complex, open until 11pm every day, built to house old people, and keep them out of the way of society on Earth. The SSR live here, and mainain its wast system of Virtual Reality computers, which keep the residents sedated, and ensure they are no longer a threat to young people.

Space Wasps turn up in Star Wars too you know - well, the "expanded universe" anyway...

Robo-Hungarian Empire
A psuedo empire of mostly simple peasant stock Robots in eastern Europe. Originally started in Hungary (UEC), it spread over most of surrounding countries, including Romania in particular. After many years, it's capital, Thermostadt, was moved there and thrived. A seemingly bad-weather magnet, possibly due to the crops grown there, the hills surrounding Thermostadt are also home to a rich line of robots, of which Bender is related. One of the most recent heads of this line was Bender's own uncle, Vladimir whose death brought the current Planet Express Team to the funeral. It was also the place where Bender contracted the Ware-Car virus, and where he returned to begin his search for the cure...

I thought I'd go for one that no-one else could be bothered to do, and have fun making absolute crap up with it...  big grin

*Wormulon is the planet were slurm is manafactured* (Bartman)

Slurm

Slurm is the largest brand of carbonated bevarage in the universe. Manufactured on the planet Wormulon, this refrshingly addictive product, is exported to virtually every planet known to man. Few people have been lucky enough to actually visit the Slurm manufacturing unit, but those who have describe it as a fairytale ride, except for the workers of the plant, known as Grunka-Lunkas. Those guys are hideous.

Slurm is a green, almost flourescent, liquid that's usually bought in 33cl cans, although 150cl bottles are available too. Slurm is highly addictive, but has so far not been conclusively linked to ailments.

Slurm was promoted by it's highly popular mascot, Slurms MacKenzie, until his tragic and fatal work-related accident in 3000.

In 3000 crackpot inventer Hubert J Farnsworth claimed Slurm came from the butt of a giant slug. Reactions were lighthearted condescending.


*in a space station orbiting the Neutral Planet.* (Nix)
 
Neutral Planet

Homeworld of the Neutrals. Highly regarded throughout the universe as impartial mediators. The have steared clear of every single interstellar conflict, through a stern politic of neutrality. Have however played a vital role in subsequent peace talks. Have however offered moral support to DOOP in it's strugle to promote peace.

Some people, most notably 25-star DOOP general Zapp Brannigan, remain convinced that the neutrality is a cover-up for far more sinister plans.

Capital city is Neutropolis. Major export include mood rings, grey clothing and beige alert sirens.


*show from 1999 called "Single Female Lawyer"*  (Mitsui)

Single female Lawyer

FOX show from the 20th century. Final episode aired in 1999, except in the New York area. The local affiliate WNYC had technical difficulties. All copies was destroyed during the second coming of Jesus.


*Earth fast food restaurant, Fishy Joe's.* (BNLbum)

Fishy Joe's

One of the major fast food franchise in the galaxy. Specialises in fish products. Based of Earth, it's biggest market. Marketed the highly succesfull Poppler treat, until external forces forced the dish of the menu. Owned by Joseph "FishyJoe" Gilmore. Is so far unsuccesfull in gaining a foothold on McPluto.


*and Sgt. Feces Processor.* (DrThunder88)

Sgt. Feces Processor

Most dispised participant in Ultimate Robot Fighting ever to play the game. Retired in 2987. Often likened to The Gender Bender.


*Refer to the "Contents Of Space Wasp's Stomach* (Spice Weasel)

Space Wasp

Space born and faring species. Aggressive and higly territorial in nature, these insectoids has been known to attack spaceships. Crews unsuccesfull in fending of their attacks usually end up being devoured alive.

Gender Bender

The guise which Bender was forced to adopt after he began to lose popularity in the Ultimate Robot Fighting League. His costume consisted of a pink tutu, a wig of blonde curls, and a fairy wand. Not the most macho of outfits.

Jesus
In the 31st century, the word "Jesus" has become a standard exclamation of amazement, usually used by old people. Examples include, "Holy Zombie Jesus!" and "Sweet Zombie Jesus!" Due to the Zombie content, it is fair to assume that Jesus was not at his physical prime during his second coming.

Grunka-Lunkas

This disgusting race of hideous little men work at the Slurm factory on planet Wormulon. They have orange skin, and a mass of green curls on their heads. Although appearing to be cute in a horrible way, they are little smart-asses who like cigarettes and drinking on duty.

Slurms MacKenzie

The "original party worm" from the planet Wormulon, Slurms was the mascot of Slurm until his unfortunate death in the year 3000. He was an lifelong "dude" and will always be remembered for his eternal catchphrase, "Whimmy wham wham wozzle!"

Single Female Lawyer is produced by FOX
FOX is a 20th Century TV studio, they are the producers and murderers of Futurama. Regularly referred to in the future and regularly bashed. They produce Single Female Lawyer in the future.
Fox studios is based in Hollywood in the year 3000 and uses the spotlights to blind pilots and they then film the resulting crashes.
In Mars University (1ACV11) Gunter graduates from business school and becomes CEO of the FOX Network. Hopefully this will improve their business sense.

Possible links: Single Female Lawyer, Mars University (1ACV08) and Hollywood.

*protested the eating of popplers*

Free Waterfall Junior: (also known as "Smelly Hippie" ) a noted anti-eating activist that carries on in his family's legacy of being earth-friendly, yet intelligence-lacking.

Free Waterfall Jnr. helped the boycott of Fishy Joe's restaurant even before it was learned that popplers were intelligent animals. Free Waterfall Jnr doesn't believe that animals have to eat other animals or anything else that feels pain. His protesters once taught a lion to eat tofu.

He foiled the attempt by Zapp Brannigan to fool the Omnicronians into eating an orantagan instead of Leela. For his good deed, however, he was then eaten by Lrr, leader of the Omnicronians. This had a 'unique' effect on Lrr.

Possible off-shoots: popplers, Fishy Joe, Lrr, Omnicronians, Free Waterfall Senior (who I'll get to later today)

Warning: do not try this at home

*eaten by Lrr, leader of the Omnicronians*

Lrrr

Is the elected leader of the Omicronians. Married to Ndnd. Almost 7 feet tall, greenskinned and wears a red cape. Recides at the royal palace on Omicron Persei 8. Commander of the powerful Omicronian War Fleet.

Lrrr is a big fan of 20th century Earth's tv-shows, which he recieves with a 1000 year delay (due to the tv-signals old-light component). Favorites are "Single Female Lawyer" and "Friends", although Joey-heavy episodes rank somewhat lower. He usually get his signal from WNYC in New York. When the season final of "Single Female Lawyer" was disrupted, Lrrr reacted with extreme rage, and launched an invasion of Earth.

He later returned to Earth when Earthicans started to fancy a new delicacy, Popplers. Knowing that Popplers was in fact Omicronian young stolen from a nursery planet 2 days flight from Earth, Lrrr threatened to eat the entire Earth population in retaliation. Later he settled with eating the first person to eat a Poppler, one Turanga Leela. However when a young Omicronian, Jrrr, claimed that Leela was his friend and had tried to save him, Lrrr reconsidered. He then ate the hippie Free Waterfall Jr, because he annoyed him.

As all Omicronians, Lrrr has a problem with recognising faces.

Lrrr has an agressive temper, and are prone to violence. His intelligence is also somewhat lacking. One of the things that infuriates in him is strange concepts, such as "wuv".

Lrrr is seeking a new term in 3009, so far prospects are good.

Zapp Brannigan commands the Nimbus

The Nimbus

First commissioned in 2991, the Nimbus is one of the planet Earth's most advanced starships.  The ship is forty decks deep and has a mass just over 5 million metric tons.  In addition to the main docking bay, the Nimbus has several, smaller docks allowing small transport shuttles to ferry equipment and personnel between other vessels and planets.  The primary armaments of the Nimbus are its arrays of laser cannons mounted in linear clusters fore, aft and in dorsal and ventral positions.  The ship is powered by two V-2000 dark matter-fueled engines located on the port and starboard sides.  These dark matter guzzling engines are fed from the primary 'outrigger' fuel containment pods, which attach to the underside of the ship through a pair of utility pylons.  A large portion of the Nimbus's sensors are located on the 'conning tower' located on the dorsal side.  While the concentration of sensors in this area allow for a significantly larger unidirectional sensor range, it also creates a large blind spot directly below the ship.  The Nimbus's main defenseive systems include self-regenerating shielding and dolomite-doped armor plating.  However, due to the ship's large size the shielding creates a significant draw from the on-board energy plant, rendering faster-than-light travel impossible while fully shielded. 
Inside the Nimbus there are many revolutionary facilities that are now being seen on more modern starships.  The most prominent of these features is the Multi-Purpose Deck or MPD.  The MPD is actually a series of four decks, whose floors, bulkheads, and furnishings can be swapped to customize the layout of those areas.  Some of the most used configurations include a mess hall, basic training facility, and general barracks for non-crew personnel.  The MPD's floor also can be opened to allow large pieces of equipment to be stored within the walls of the ship.  The trap-floor can also be used to instantaneously drop items or combat-ready units directly into battle.

The Nimbus's first and current Captain is Zapp Brannigan, who has commanded the ship in several stunning military victories and a few mishaps involving destroying friendly space apparatuses.  Though the ship's crew must be replaced regularly (due to the high casualty rate associated with Brannigan's command), its First Officer has remained the same, Kif Kroker.

Blernsball

The Earthican past time.  A "jazzed-up" version of the ancient Earth sport "baseball."  Players hit a ball on an elastic tether that is thrown, or "pitched," to the batter.  Fielders try to prevent the ball from entering small holes in the field, which score blerns.  Basic rules such as the strike zone and outs seem to remain the same as their ancient counterparts.  The Blernsball Hall of Fame is located on the same plot of land as the ancient Baseball Hall of Fame, in Cooperstown, New New York.  Notable players include over twenty generations of Hank Aarons, the last of which was regarded as the worst player ever, batting a record .000 his entire career, until Turanga Leela in the 3002 season, in which she pitched in over 100 innings without getting a single out.  Teams include the New New York Yankees, the New New York Mets, the Mars Greenskins, the Boston Poindexters, and the Atlanta Braves.

*Bender contracted the Ware-Car virus*

Were-car

Terrible curse that can befall robots. Most modern day people consider werecars part of ancient folklore, and scoff as such silly ideas. Some unfortunate robots have, however, realised that this myth have a factual core.

When a robot is hit by the curse, it wont be aware about it. Every midnight, when the internal chronometer reset, the werecar routine will be activated. Powerful algorithms cause the original program to be over-ridden and the werecar routine take complete control of the body. Advanced morphology programs, integrated in the werecar routine,  cause the body to change into a transportation vehicle. The result look almost like a normal hovercar, but the ancient origin of the werecar curse shine through. Rather than superconducting electromagnets, the propulsion is done through a chemical combustion inside the car, the resulting force is then tranfered to a collection of vulcanized rubber discs. Through friction with the ground forward motion is achieved. Ancient texts name these rubber discs "wheel".

Werecars prowl the surrounding area at night, looking for innocent victims. When a robot is attacked by a werecar the virus is transfered through a optical link. Humans are usually just killed. Next morning the werecar program will have run it course, and the robot will have no memory of the events.

When a robot is hit by the werecar virus, it's only options is to find the origin of the virus and kill it, or commit suicide. Otherwise the killings will never stop. When the originator of the werecar virus is killed, it will transmit the uninstall command.

Usually werecar virus' are written on purpose, but ancient readme files indicate that it can be a spontaneous error. Otherwise known as "illegal operations".

Rumour have it that the following robots have been werecars: Bender Bending Rodriguez, Calculon, Project Satan, count Vladimir of Thermostadt, Thesp-o-mat, Acting Unit 0.8 and David Duchovny.

Where did you find episode capsules?

By the way, Mars University was the academic home of Ogden Wernstrom.

Note: I forgot what that inventor's symposium and its award were called.
Ogden Wernstrom

Professor Ogden Wernstrom, a brilliant and generally egocentric man, received his PhDs in Quantum and Astrophysics from Mars University in 2901.  His thesis on the end of the Universe is actually responsible for coining the term 'the Big Suck' and was quite controversial among many of the civilized Universe's top scientific minds.  His doctoral work was also impeded by a long-standing fued with noted theorist and inventor Hubert Farnsworth.  Wernstrom's contempt for Farnthworth began with a single grade handed out to Ogden late in the Spring semester of his Senior Year.  Being given an 'A-' for his sloppyness set Wernstrom on a 100 year vendetta, seeking to destroy and humiliate Farnsworth.  Wernstrom eventually left academia to enter the private sector.  His complete and utter lack of interpersonal skills led to his dismissal from four major corporations and a consulting job for the City of New New York.  He was awarded the Annual Inventors' Symposium's Annual Award in 3000 but was later forced to return the award in light of his complete disregard for the citizens of New New York City and Earth itself.  Leading the cause of stripping Wernstrom of his award was his arch-nemesis, Prof. Farnthworth, whose triumph (Wernstrom promised) would not go unavenged.

Many of Brannigan's men fell victim to Killbots

Killbots

Standing over two meters tall, the Mom's Friendly Robot Company's Series Seven killbot is an imposing figure even without its weaponry.  One of the primary weapons used by the mantis-like killbots are their sickle-shaped bladed arms.  These razor sharp, titanium apendages are capable of slicing through most body armor worn by DOOP soldiers.  The Series Seven also carries an array of positron launchers mounted in its abdomen for long distance fighting.  Thanks to the robots' slim structure, they present a difficult target for most organic soldiers.  The largest flaw in the MFRC design is the software's reliance on a limited number of kills.  This means that a large enough group of soldiers can defeat the Series Sevens without ever firing a shot.  This weakness was capitalized on by Zapp Brannigan in 2996, where he saved an entire system from a hoarde of rampaging Series Sevens.

Earth soldiers use positron rifles

Positron Rifles

'Positron rifle' is a term describing any long positron weapon made for engagements over a great distance.  Positronic weapons fire 'bolts,' which are slugs of solid positrons enveloped in an energy casing.  When the bolt strikes its target, the energy casing burns off into the target so the positrons can be exposed.  When these unsheathed positrons come into contact with the electrons in the target they annihilate each other, causing severe, localized disintegration. 

The Heckler and Wesson PR-12 is a battle proven assault rifle capable of delivering desnse positron bolts at great ranges.  Unlike modern positron rifles, the PR-12 doesn't rely on an internal energy source to launch its projectiles.  Instead, it uses a hand crank on the right side of the weapon.  The PR-12 has been in service since 2972, and the Earth Army is currently conducting field tests for its replacement.

Brain Slugs

Brain slugs are an parasitic, invertebrate species native to the Brain Slug Planet.  Brain slugs feed on cognitive energy in the form of the Alpha and Delta brainwaves.  They attach themselves to their victims by using their adhesive slime to the scalp.  The host's personality becomes totally supressed and their body is controlled by the slug.  Brain slugs have a single, rudimentary eye that can only see the heat signatures of their prey, but they gain the use of their host's senses when they begin feeding.  The slugs, as a species, are telepathically linked but prone to communicate with one another through their hosts.

Brain slugs are a fairly intelligent race.  As primitive life forms they had a hard time establishing a society, but the assimilation of a DOOP survey crew allowed them to work together more effectively.  Using their hosts' bodies, they set to work building a city with an important stop-over point on the way to many of the Universe's most popular tourist destinations.  The spaceport the brain slugs built was a brilliant ploy to infest countless unknowing visitors on their vacations.  The assimilated individuals return to their home planets and attempt to assimilate others by placing other slugs on their heads or convincing them to go to the brain slug homeworld.

The slugs will attack their hosts by crawling up their bodies until they reach the cranium.  The only sure way to prevent infestation is to wear a helmet on the Brain Slug homeworld and use a garlic shampoo when in close proximity to an infested individual.

Beck

(I'm not sure what you would link him to, or get him linked from yet. Maybe "Head in a Jar" or 'celebrites')

Beck is perhaps one of the most engaging and well, weird, musical entertainers of both the 20th and the 30th Centuries. His vocal stylings remind many music critics of what would happen if you mixed up the voacls of white-boy hip-hop, funk, and a whole lot of bluesy-folk into a blender and hit frappe.. The Beck sound is classified by its unclassifiableness.

Almost as confusing as Beck's sound is his lyrics. Beck thinks real words often lack meaning, and he is known to make up completely random words and/or syllabyls when necessary. Some of Beck's inventive words: Odelay, Bzooty, Whiskyclone, Bizzness, Fuking, etc. Sometimes, even he forgets what he is singing about.

As of the year 2002, Beck has released 5 major albums, all widely loved in the 'vaguely-folkish alterna-rock' cirlces. "Mellow Gold" and "Odelay!" are expieremental cds of, well, Beck. These also have been his two biggest albums (see appendix A). "Mutations", a cd quite popular with the mutant community under NNY, follows in more of a folk-rock styling, while "Midnite Vultures" is almost pure disco dancing. "Sea Change" is a different type of Beck - understandable and depressing.

Although his body died in the Great War of 2015, his head has been kept alive in a jar. Since 2015, Beck's new replacement body is a thrift store manniquen that he fished out of a 99 cent dumpster. Also equiped in his new body is a harmonica, which he gave to one of his star-struck fans - Bender Bending Rodriguiz.

Living inside a jar has caused Beck's head to go partily mad. He often barks to his 'minions' to do evil deeds that the musician cannot or will not do. Aside from that, he genuinely likes people and is involved in numerous charities.

Appendix A.

Xmas

In the future, the word Christmas has been completely lost in the mists of time, and replaced with the word "Xmas", pronounced Ecks-Mas. As such, the day has lost all religious conotations it may or may not have had in the 21st century.

Santa Bot

Santa Bot was created by Mom's Friendly Robot Co. to determine who had been naughty and nice, and distribute presents accordingly. Unfortunately, Santa's standards were set too high and he invariably finds everyone to be naughty (except Dr. Zoidberg). He then stalks the streets, hunting down the naughty people and kicking some naughty ass with his arsenal of high-powered weaponry. In the future everyone stays inside after sundown on Xmas Eve unless they have a death wish, as the suicide booths all have long queues at that time of year.

In the year 3000, Santa Bot was foiled in his dastardly plans by the Planet Express crew, though he vowed to come back when they least expected it (next Xmas).

The following year, Bender had to take Santa Bot's place after he was frozen by the aformentioned Planet Express crew. Unfortunately, the people of Earth were not aware that the new Santa was a friendly robot, and Bender had a hard time staying out of trouble.

Please no useless posts in here Margarita.

I added Momcorp and the positron rifles.

Out of the logs: People searching for misspelled keywords or variants like "Planet Express starship" instead of "Planet Express Ship". I added a fault tolerant search for titles that kicks in if no match was found. Not sure if it can stay once we got lots of entries, but it does work pretty well with things like "frey", "leila", "il chuparnibre".
More entries to be added soonishly.

Tube transport

Primary mean of urban transportation in most major cities. Only city yet to build a tube transportation system (TTS) is Los Angeles.

The TTS was first proposed in 2275 when rush hour traffic in inner cities became too widespread. Traffic jams was the norm, and road rage related deaths reached new heights. For a brief time matter transportation chambers was regarded as the future way of commuting. After 436856 accidental deaths within the first 3 days of operation the transportation chambers was outlawed. The technology later found new use in the suicide booth industry.

The TTS was the brainchild of the brilliant scientist Flash Brannigan. The proposal was ahead of it's time, and the necessary technology didn't come around until 2346, just in time for Brannigan to see his invention realized before his death in 2349. The first city to build a TTS was New New York, other cities soon followed. Today the green transparent tubes of a TTS is a common sight in big cities.

The TTS consist of a vast network of greenish transparent tubes connecting every part of the city. At regular intervals tubes interconnect ensuring multiple redundancy in the grid. Several major "hubs" spanning more than 100 yards serve as citywide transportation nodes. TTS exits are located on practically every streetcorner.

When a passenger enter a TTS exit he'll state his destination to the computer terminal. Routing computers then ensure the road is clear, and coordinate the travel with other travels. If the destination doesn't correspondt with an existing tube exit the traveller will be directed to the exit nearest to his destination. After ensuring the route is clear, the ionization inducers are activated creating a lightly charged field around the traveller. Regular electromagnets then use the field to propel the traveller. The ionization field is harmeless to PC's, credit cards, pacemakers and other electronics.

The entire process is highly automated, and require very little effort on behalf of the traveller. Powerfull computers supervice the entire process. These computers are located on the TTS hubs. Only exiting the TTS require action on behalf of the traveller. Usually the travel is done headfirst, and a small "reversing chamber" is located at each exit giving the traveller the chance to land on his legs. First time users are easily distinguished, as they haven't mastered this manouvre yet.

The TTS is free of charge, and is government funded.


Wong dynasty

Common name for the vast possesions of Leo and Inez Wong. Based on an extensive buggalo production.

The Wong dynasty was founded in 2724 when Sir Reginald Wong bought the land of the Martian tribe in exchange for one bead. For centuries people believed the tribe was short-changed, until it was discovered that the "bead" was actual the largest diamant in the known universe.

Today the Wong family own 17.9 billion acres of Mars (the entire Western hemisphere), primarily used for farming and buggalo pastures.

Part of the Wong fortune are used to support Mars U. Thanks to the Wongs Mars U can boast the largest collection of litterature in the Universe. The sorority Kappa Kappa Wong also benefits from these funds. The fact that the daughter of Leo & Inez, Amy Wong, attend Mars U and is honarary member of KKW is purely coincidental.

TTS was meant to aleviate hover car traffic

Hover Vehicles

Although the idea of personal transportation units has been around since the Stupid Ages, the automobile was revolutionized in 2220 with the invention of the Pulsating Universal Magnetic Passage System. PUMPS uses the Earth's magnetic field to lift the the vehicle off of the ground, and by alternating power pulses to the front an rear of the system, it can drive the vehicle in any direction.  This not only allows for smooth travel over the roughest terrain, but it also lets the vehicle move in any lateral direction.

Developed by General Daimler-Ford Motors in 2215, the first PUMPS system was large, cumbersome, and used only on the 'People Mover', a mass-transit system in Detroit.  Fear of this new technology drove annual ridership of the People Mover down from twenty in 2214 to four in 2216.  In the next few years the technology became more refined, and the People Mover expeerienced its highest annual rider rate in 2219, thirty-two people.  By 2220 the federal government had approved the PUMPS system for automobiles.  General Daimler-Ford Motors unveiled the first hover-car, the Model T-Bird, at the North American International Auto Show in January 2201.  It wasn't long before standard wheeled vehicles became obsolete and had all but disappeared.

Okay okay, here's my already implemented addition to the Encyclopedia:

Great Garbage Crisis of NY
An informative porn movie about the great garbage crisis of Old New York between the years 2000 and 2052. It shows how the garbage filled up the streets, the landfills and even New Jersey, before the mayor sent it out on the seas on the world's greatest barge, drifting for 50 years. As no one would accept it, it came back to New York and later, with the help of the city's mob connections, a rocket was obtained and the garbage was launched into space. It was at the time uncertain whether or not the stenchy garbage would one day return and collide with the Earth causing mayhem to whatever area it would hit or pass close by.
After the launch is complete, the movie plot changes back to the more common type of porn movie, as the male doctor undresses in front of a female counterpart.
The video is downloadable on the Internet.
