          Hello, I was wondering why the box sets were released in Europe and other parts of the world before they were released in america.  I know this is a stupid quetion, but Im just curious.  Thanks!

Nobodys absolutely 100% sure exactly why FOX did this for Futurama (and some other box sets). Reasons given range from keeping the value of syndication deals high, to "testing the water" in less risky markets, to FOX simply pursuing a personal vendetta against Futurama.

The most probable explanation is FOX wanting to sell off the syndication rights to CN for as much as possible. If the box sets were released, then the value of the deal would fall and FOX wouldn't get as much money.
