Dear Futurama friends: I am a newbie in this forum, but I remember I was addicted to Futurama from around 2000-2002 (as I try to remember) when I was a chemistry student.

I will never forget the one scene where Fry, in the year 3000, gets a newspaper with the title "Nano still not working" (or somehow like that). I am rather sure it was in one of the earlier episodes, so it was really long ago. I guess it was still before Episode 6 (which google mentioned to be the nano episode, Benderama). I really vaguely remember the context, but I will never forget this one scene.

Does anybody remember by heart in which episode/series it was? ... or just give me a hint :-)

I would really really appreciate your help: Meanwhile I got my PhD in the field of Chemistry, working still in university research in a field related to nano stuff (that really does´t work - haha...). I want to show the scene in my talks as a humorous message.

Kind regards,

Starship Captain

I can say that if it was from 2000-2002 that it wasn't Benderama, if that helps at all.

It may have been from the animatic of episode 1, which had tons of deleted billboards, newspapers, & vending machines.

Thanks :-) Seems I will need to have a big Futurama revival of the old episodes. Hopefully my son already likes it – he is six. Haha. Hmmmmmm.

^We already had the thread "Futurama episodes for a 3 year old"...feel free to open a "Futurama Episodes for a 6 years old" thread if you want ;)

Welcome to PEEL Stefan and that quote extremely relates to "Benderama".

As you earned your PhD in Chemistry, you are in the right site as many here are known for their bright minds (Tachyon and totalnerduk for example). I'm sure you will fit in a matter of time.

Hi back, MeatablePie :-) I just watched the Benderama episode on the web, and another one of which I first thought it was Benderama. Fascinating ideas and so many scientific concepts that I did not understand in the early 2000s in such a depth. Hahaha, nano-robots that manipulate single molecules. My scientific dream comes true, at least in Futurama.

In real world, I learned last year about the proton driven ATP synthase nanomachine – that is, in my opinion now, one of the most fascinating things nature ever made.

Still, I was missing the newspaper quote I remembered. But: I feel like I am recidivous. Man, I need more of this great stuff. This will, in return, increase the chance that I will find the scene by myself.
