You may have a favorite episode, but what episode do you think is the funniest? I didn't have a poll because i think every episode is funny! I pick The Series Has Landed, it had me laughing all the way through. Then again, I have not seen every episode.

The three funniest episodes are, without a doubt - War Is The H-Word, Insane In The Mainframe, and Roswell That Ends Well.

Insane in the Mainframe is definitely one of the funniest.  So is A Head in the Polls.

A Head in the Polls
Insane in the Mainframe
Roswell that Ends Well
X-Mas Story
Love's Labours Lost In Space
Brannagin Begin Again

THOSE ARE THE FUNNIEST IN MY OPINION!

Spanish Fry's also a good laugh if you find penis jokes funny.

^^ I did  evil laugh

Insane In The Mainframe is almost undisputedly the funniest, at least for me. There's been others that are close, but no cigar, for them.

I like Insane In The Mainframe too, it was hillarious the whole way through. However, I personally think that War Is The H-Word was a lot funnier. Before I saw that, I was a regular viewer of the show, but wasn't really obsessed or anything. But when I finally did see it, I was converted to a fan of the show. Never before have I seen something that made me cry with laughter so many times (except for maybe South Park, episode 615: The Biggest Douche In The Universe). War Is The H-Word has to be one of the funniest pieces of television I've seen. EVER. Although Insane In The Mainframe, Roswell That Ends Well, Spanish Fry and most Zapp Brannigan-based episodes are hillarious too.

I think Roswell That Ends Well is the funniest episode, it's not the best, but it's the funniest. But I think Zoidberg's sub-plot in 30% Iron Chef is the funniest part of any episode.

Amazon Women in the Mood.

Simply no non-hilarious moment the entire length.

Here I go with the comments better kept to myself:

War Is The H-Word actually falls under some of the most boring for me (the list including Bending In The Wind, The Cryonic Woman, and The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings). Something about the episode just turned me away from it... hard to explain.

Roswell, very funny. Less Than Hero? A hoot, if you're willing to sit through it (I know some people won't. Spanish Fry, that's gotta be one of the funniest I've seen. And we can't forget My Three Suns for all its great alien humor, or I Dated A Robot, for all the great internet and Lucy Liu jokes.

Frankly, every episode is funny.

Parasites Lost hasn't got a mention yet, for some unknown reason. Sure, some people may not like the shippiness of it - but still, you gotta love Zoidberg. "Yippie kie yay, you'll never guess where I've been!"  big grin

Meh, dripping with romance. *thumbs down*

I am not a shipper. I don't find Parasites Lost, Devil's Hands, or A Flight To Remember quite as interesting as shippers would. The Sting I must admit is an exception to that, but there are other reasons, like how that episode is one of the few that actually made me want them to be together...

But I digress.

How come nobody's gone and mentioned The Day The Earth Stood Stupid or The Why of Fry? Those episodes are funny!

Leela's story in Anthology of interest I was probably the most hilarious part in Futurama.

The man has a point. AWITM is joke-ridden.

Although, Roswell, War Is The H-Word are up there for me.

What's not funny about The Why of Fry? I was laughing through most of it, except for the part where Fry performs self-sacrifice by blowing up the Infosphere, that was just awesome.

Oh wait, I'm talking to potential shippers about TWOF's funniness... never mind.

Nixorbo: Is it so wrong for a girl to NOT be into romance? Cause this smiley sums up my high-concentration-of-romance tolerance    puke But The Sting is the only episode that turns me away from my own views.

Gah...Nix why didn't you tell me about this thread? Amazon Women In The Mood is one of the funniest 22 minutes I've ever seen on TV. Well, ok, I didn't first watch it on TV, I was a downloadin' fool. But my point stands!

Other episodes have come close, but Roswell That Ends Well and Spanish Fry all have a few(I said few!) unfunny scenes/gags that bring it down. I honestly can't remember a single unfunny joke in Amazon Women. The writers were on fire, for that episode.

PLease use spoliers people, every time I see something about The Why of Fry I have to block my eyes and ears and go lalalalalalala  tongue

I can't pick an ep too damn hard to choose....The Deep South is hilarious, Roswell of course and Time keeps on Slippin, purely for Bubblegum's constant picking on Bender.... laff

*Totally agrees with Nix* All the episodes have hilarious moments, but AWITM is absolutely the funniest episode I have seen, although I missed several season 1 and 4 episodes.

The three funniest in my book:

1. Roswell That Ends Well - Zoidberg doesn't get any better than this!

2.Amazon Women in the Mood - Hilarious spoof of a matriarchal society. Can't get enough snu-snu jokes and the shot of Fry and Zap at the end in their crotch casts was priceless!

3.Problem with Popplers - Features one of the funniest songs in Futurama. Also Omicronians, Smelly Hippie and an ape-Leela lookalike!

I agree with Amazon Women, every minute of it was comedy perfection. AOI1, Bird-Bot of Ice-catraz and Roswell That Ends Well had barely an unfunny moment too.

Insane In the Mainframe most likely takes the cake, but I also gotta say, War Is The H-Word, Leela's part in AOI 1, Zoidy's part in Iron Chef, The Sting, Problem With Popplers, Bird-bot, TDTESS, WMIBACIL, Roswell, AFTR, MTS, etc.

Wow, so many to pick from.

Roswell, AOI 1 & 2, War is the H-word probably many more.

The funniest episodes would be Roswell that ends well, The Day the earth stood stupid, the problem with popplers, and X-mas Story.

"Amazon Women In The Mood" So many great moments in that episode. No it isn't shippy (well a small scene with Amy and Kif), no it isn't emotionel, but the jokes are coming at you non-stop. Just hearing Zapp sing "Leela" would propel this episode into top-10.

Other funny eps: "Roswell That Ends Well", AOI I, LLLIS, and about 68 other.

I can't see how anyone could leave Xmas Story out of their list.  It has a touching moment, but it's still basically hilarious the whole way through.  Anyway, my list:

Xmas Story
Roswell that Ends Well
Bender Gets Made
Fry and the Slurm Factory
Anthology of Interest I

Honorable mention:
The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings (third act was a little slow)
I, Roomate
Raging Bender
The Farnsworth Parabox
The Series has Landed
Goldfish

The Day the earth stood stupid -
'Ow, ow! I'm a genius! Ow, ow, ow!'
'Attention New New Yorkers, stop being so stupid!'
'Let's play the lottery'
'Now I am leaving earth, for no raisin!'
