Futurama is great and one of the things I noticed is that some of the episodes were just like Simpsons episodes.  In Mars University Bender shows three robot nerds how to party down, just like when Homer went to College and showed three nerds how to party down.

Also, in Roswell That Ends Well, Bender makes a comment about seatbelts.

Bender: "Eh those things cost more lives than they save" 

That line is almost similar to what Homer says in "Realty Bites" when he buys, Snake's Lil' Bandit.

Marge: Homer you should wear a seatbelt
Homer: Those things lose more lives than they save.

Actually they're both parodying "Animal House" a movie from 1978 about a lunatic campus fraternity, so it's natural they'll have some things in common.

Good catch on the seatbelt.

Also:Jokes seen on Simsons and later on Futurama

Yes, but it's funnier when Bender says it than Homer. I barely remember Homer saying then, while Bender saying it rings clear in my mind.

There is also that bit with the plastic surgery in 'The Cyber house rules', and i think that was in the simpsons somewhere. I dunno which one came first though

Do you mean "Large Marge" when Marge accidentally got breast implants? Because if that's what you're referring to, "The Cyber House Rules" came first.

He means the Twilight Zone reference that was first used in Pygmolian, or at least I would assume.

Less than Hero.  'Nuff said.
