Dialogue is great and all, but what good visual only gags does Futurama contain?

"Leela, there's nothing wrong with anything."

I like Bender's "french" irises when he saw the "Le Grande" cigar, that's all I can think of right now.

One of my favorites is Zoidberg working in the garden of his underwater home in the deep south.
Or at the beginning of the same episode, I can always laugh at Zoidberg in the background taking notice of Hermes who is preparing his baits.

I like the bit in The Deep South (2ACV12) where Bender says "Everyone chip in five bucks" and you can see Zoidberg checking his pockets for money in the background (he doesn't have any, naturally).  According to the DVD commentary, there was a joke there about him borrowing money which ended up getting cut.

I guess this counts as an "oneliner" but it's just hilarious when Fry first says:

"Whats so farfetched with mermaids? There's all kind of werid fish creatures here in the future, like Dr Zoidberg"

Then the camera turns to zoidberg doing his garden with his hilarious smile wawing with his claws.

That gag is so hilarious!

The memory of your avatar, planetcutie, as well as Zoidberg's great one liner, is one of the best Visual gags in Futurama.  laff

In 4ACV13, I like Shatner's eyes widening when Nichols says "Hey, in season 3, I kissed Shatner!"

I think the best visual gag is Fry hanging from the digital clock in "Xmas Story."

I'm probably the only person in the world that finds this funny, I doubt anyone else has even noticed it. It's not even a joke, when you read what I have to say and then go and watch it for yourself, you'll come back and post, what was funny about that!?.
But what the hell... In the episode The Series Has Landed (the moon one) in the bit when the gang first enter the park, Bender starts drinking a bottle of beer, then a park mascot (Craterface)comes along to confiscate it. For some reason I find the way Bender has been animated as he looks over his shoulder and turns to face Craterface incredibly funny! He just has this blank stare on his face, I can't explain why I find it funny. It only lasts a few frames, blink and you'll miss it, when you watch it you'll think "surely that's not what he was going on about, what's so funny?" But I love it.

Another thing I love is the animation on Fry when he appears on the nibblonian moniter in the episode "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid". As Nibbler is telling Leela about Frys 'special' mind Fry starts examining the sole of his foot then looks at the 'camera' frowning. Again I can't explain why I find it funny.

I loved Bender's reaction in SP3K when Smitty yell "we have you partially surrounded!"

Makes a reprisal at the start of "Bendin' In The Wind" as well, not as funny this time though.

I enjoy seeing the special FX for Bender's ass explosion. And to finish it off with a heart-shaped iris.

And I also agree with Action Jacktion. Fry hanging on to the LCD digits was cool.

How about in SP3K when Bender's arms fall off and he somehow puts them both back on by himself... And when Fry tossed Bender's head back to his own body and the body missed.  Those were great.

That was good.  In a similar vein, I liked the scene in "Less than Hero" when Leela rips off her normal clothes to reveal her costume, then somehow rips off her costume to reveal more clothing.

I like the low-tech ways people use to impersonate people. Like when Mom's henchmen used a body double to support Pam Anderson's jar head, and she looked too tall and clunky.

Or in "When Aliens Attack" where Leela had to be the Single Female Lawyer, she pasted a googly eye next to her real eye and it looked really small.

my favorites gota be when fry (in Where No Fan Has Gone Befour) says "we can tie these catapiller together to make a bow string" and he tries it and it explodes all over him, his reaction to that was halirious. (the fighting right after that was great too, among other things when spock tries the death grip on bender)

ps what is camara 3? i dont remember that

Y'know...That's the second time I've totally misquoted a scene that I thought was in SP3K.  I must believe that episode was much funnier than it was.  I like the part in SP3K where Zoidberg asks the Airforce guy, "Are you coming on to me?"

EDIT:

When it boils right down to it, I'm pretty stupid.

Possibly one of Futuramas greatest visual jokes ever, is in an episode that not many people like (but I actually like the episode quite alot).
I love the scene in a Pharoah To Remember when Fry goes to nail up a new number board on the ...Days without an accident sign. Whilst nailing it up he miss's the board and nails his hand to the sign. As he bends down to pick up the number board he can't reach because of his trapped hand.
True comedy genuis (described badly by me).

Bender's gold tooth and his pimp walk in Put Your Head On My Shoulder.

Oh and Zoidberg's face when Bender and Leela are talking about him being desperately poor and miserably lonely in the same episode.

And like people have already said, Dr Zoidberg - homeowner in The Deep South.

In the episode "When Aliens Attack", Bender is the camera. Fry shouts "Camera 1!" and one of benders eyes extends out. "Camera 2", the other extends out. "Camera 3", nothing extends out, you just hear the sound effect.

Anyway, I think Fry with a chicken on his head, pouring gravy over it, in "Anthology Of Interest" does it for me.

Also, in "The Deep South", Zoidberg dressed up, waving to them, while gardening. Genius.
