 In exploring this site, I've seen lots of references to sight gags, continuity errors,
trivia and the like. One thing that I don't think that has been covered are the 5 second
cartoon clips that we see on the large display screen just before the spaceship crashes headlong into it. Has anybody compiled a list of what cartoons these clips were actually taken from? There must be some
thought by the animators in placing these short clips, and I was curious if anybody has compiled the titles of these clips, let alone what their signifigances are.

They have a bunch at What Else Futurama.  I forget the link, but I believe there's a link to it from CGEF.  I'm too lazy to find out for sure.

Thanks for the info, that's exactly where the information is, and it seems that they would like to know as well.

For the first season and part of the second, the cartoon sequences were pretty easy to recognize.  Now, they're using some really obscure material from the 30's.  It will be tough to identify those!

After reviewing the tape, here are a few more  cartoon openings for you:

2ACV06 - Put Your Head on My Shoulder - this is a Little Lulu cartoon, made by Paramount/Famous studio between 1943 and 1948.

2ACV07 - Lesser of Two Evils - this is a Felix the Cat cartoon from the 1920's.

2ACV11 - How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back - this is a Felix the Cat cartoon from the 1920's

2ACV16 - Anthology of Interest I - this is Bosko, Warner Brothers first cartoon character (1930 - 1933)

2ACV18 - War is the H-Word - another Felix the Cat cartoon.  Since it's in color, I believe that it is "Neptune Nonsense", made by Van Beuren studio in 1936.

Well, I have three sources of information.

First, I've been watching cartoons most of my life.  That helps to recognize major cartoon characters if they appear in the opening sequence.  Also, after a while you start to recognize styles used by different studios and animators.  That helps narrow the field. 

Second, because I love animation, I have a large collection of cartoons.  Sometimes, you just have to go to the tape (or videodisc or DVD). 

Finally, I collect books on animation.  Some of these provide lists of every cartoon released by a Hollywood studio.

This is a 9+ year old thread bump.  That's got to be some sort of record...
