Those arent just in our galaxy, they're our neighbors in our Solar System. We really dont have any non-scientific names for planets other than in our solar system, so who knows, they might have visited other planets in our galaxy.

Whoa, Woodbot 2.0 needs to spell check this thread. Anyway, some more Globe-Trotter Homeworld, Decapod 10, the various Omicronian planets and Kapek 9, the robot planet.

Didn't they go past Jupiter at one point, on the way to one of its moons or something? In PYHOMS, I'm thinking.  I'm not sure... someone who is not lazy can check.

The Omicron Persei system is in our galaxy (and it really exists), but since they can go anywhere in the universe, many of the planets they visit could be outside of our galaxy.

You beat me to it! Capek was the surname of the man that invented the term "robot" for machines. Well something along the lines of that... anyway, it shows how much thought they put into naming the robot planet.   smile

edit: I just found this:

"Contrary to the popular opinion, Karel Capek, the author of RUR is not the inventor of the word robot. The word which is derived from the czech noun "robota" meaning "labor" is an accomplishement of Capek's older brother, the cubist painter and writer Josef Capek.
The word first appeared in the play RUR published in 1920. Some claim that the word "robot" was first used in Josef Capek's short story Opilec (the Drunkard) published in the collection Lelio in 1917. According to the Capek brother's Society in Prague this is not correct. The word used in Opilec is "automat"."

Where's McPluto?

That's probably the name used to refer to the planet in the business world, since it's owned by the McDonald's Corporation.  They set up the penguin preserve as an attempt to show they were environmentally friendly, as well as a cheap source of meat for for their McPenguin sandwiches.

I believe Venus was only shown in Leela's dream, but she might well have been there before, or at least seen pictures of it, so we can probably assume that's what it really looks like.  There are also apparently Venusians living on Earth, although I don't know that we've actually seen any of them.

Amy mentions a Jupiter State University in "Bendless Love."

Doesn't Old Man Waterfall talk about having fought a battle on Saturn?

I don't believe we've ever seen Venus, in real life that is, as VoVat brought up. We have seen Saturn as Bender piloted the oil tanker by it in "Birdbot." And yeah, Old Man Waterfall did talk about Saturn.

A quick rundown of the solar system, as seen on Futurama:

The Sun: The closest we come to visiting the sun is in "The Farnsworth Parabox", when Hermes almost throws a box containing Universe 1 into the sun.  Also, job deserters are fired out of a cannon into the sun, and a television program called The Real World: The Sun is filmed there.

Mercury: Fry and Amy visit Mercury in "Put Your Head on My Shoulders".  It has one gas station.  Mercury has a breathable atmosphere in the 31st century, but it is still very hot.

Venus: Venus is never actually visited during the series, but Fry and Leela dance in a Venusian garden in her dream in "The Sting".

The Earth: Earth is seen in almost every episode.  Enough said.

The Moon: The PE crew goes to the moon in "The Series Has Landed".  Aside from the amusement park, the moon remains much the same as it is today.

Mars: The PE crew visits Mars in "Mars University" and "Where the Buggalo Roam".  Mars has been terraformed, and is home to Mars University, where Amy is a student and Professor Farnsworth teaches.  Amy's parents own the Western Hemisphere of Mars, where they have a buggalo ranch.  Mars was once inhabited by a race of native Martians, but they have since left in search of a new planet.

Jupiter: Jupiter itself is never visited during the series, but in "Put Your Head on My Shoulders" Fry, Amy, and Zoidberg visit Jupiter's moon Europa.

Saturn: Saturn is also never visited during the series, but Fry and Leela dance along its rings in the holophoner sequence in "Parasites Lost".

Uranus: Although Uranus is never seen during the series, in "A Big Ball of Garbage" we learn that its name has been changed to Urectum.

Neptune: The PE crew visits Neptune in "A Tale of Two Santas".  Santa's ice fortress is located at the North Pole of Neptune, where he opresses the local Neptunian people.  Like Mercury and Mars, Neptune has a breathable atmosphere.  Neptunians are also seen throughout the series, most notably Elzar and Heather.

Pluto: The PE crew goes to Pluto in "The Birdbot of Ice-catraz".  Pluto is home to a penguin preserve.  Pluto has a breathable atmosphere, and a climate similar to that of Antarctica.

Haley's Comet: The PE crew goes to Haley's Comet in "Crimes of the Hot" to get ice, but the comet is out of ice.

We also see Fry and Leela on Saturn's moon Hyperion in her dream in "The Sting."

And in case anyone wondered, the only episode that does not have any scenes set on Earth is "Where the Buggalo Roam."

There should be a "ī" above the "C", but my keyboard doesn't seem to be able to render that properly.

I knew that I missed one of the moons of either Jupiter or Saturn, but I couldn't think of which one.

Yup.  That's why I said almost every episode.

What I meant about the moon being the same is that it still has low gravity and lacks an atmosphere.  Most of the other places in the solar system that we've seen have earthlike gravity and a breathable atmosphere.

I don't have the DVDs, so I haven't seen that deleted scene with Fry and Michelle.

Well, yeah; but that's the only thing on Mercury.  What else was I going to mention?

Also, Woodbot said that Mercury had gas stations (plural).  He seemed to be missing the point of the joke, so I wanted to point out that there was only one.

Fair enough, but I think that the farms on the moon are worth mentioning if we are discussing what is shown of planets in our solar system.

Edit: Moon being counted as a planet in this instance, naturally.

There's plenty of other stuff that I could have said about Mars, too.

I said that it was a quick rundown of the solar system.  I never claimed that it was meant to be an all-inclusive, comprehensive list.

I don't want to keep replying, but I feel obliged to. Your statment about the moon: "Aside from the amusement park, the moon remains much the same as it is today" makes it sound like you are saying that the amusement park is the only thing that is different between the moon of Futurama and the moon of today. I was just pointing out that there is at least one farm, perhaps more.  whether or not you deem it necessary for inclusion in your run-down of the solar system is not the issue. This thread is about what we see of planets in our solar system in Futurama, and I was offering some previously unsaid information. That is all.

The deleted scene from "The Cryonic Women" looks more like something from the Asteroid field than the rings of Saturn.

Apparently the Venusians invaded Earth at some point.

I presume that's why he said "much the same as it remains today", not exactly. One farm isn't really that much, considering the size of the whole moon, plus the only thing it seems to be known for is the park.

As far as other star systems in our galaxy, in addition to Omicron Persei, the Cygnoids are presumably from a planet orbitting one of the stars in the contellation Cygnus.

Anyway, I was watching "A Head in the Polls" again and the titanium mine in the news report is on Saturn's moon Titan.
