Futurama started with a bang (or a cryogenic freeze, to be exact) when Fry, a down-on-his-luck delivery boy, found himself accidentally cryogenically frozen and waking up 1,000 years later.

With the world now a futuristic, alien-filled place, Fry struggled to adjust and find his place in this strange new world. That is, until he stumbled upon Bender, a foul-mouthed robot who took Fry under his wing and showed him the ropes.

Together, they joined the crew of the Planet Express delivery ship, run by the one-eyed mutant, Leela, and captained by the eccentric Professor Farnsworth. Along with a supporting cast of characters, including the mad scientist, Dr. Zoidberg, Futurama took off on a wild adventure, filled with humor and hijinks at every turn.

It's hard to pick just one moment to describe from Futurama, as the show was filled with countless hilarious moments. However, one that consistently stands out is the episode Luck of the Fryrish.

Fry searches for a good luck charm from his past and discovers that his seven-leaf clover has been taken and turned into a monument. In a classic Futurama twist, it turns out that his brother, Yancy, has been passing it off as his own good luck charm for years.

Filled with laughs, both in the present and the past, as Fry and Yancy's relationship is explored through a series of flashbacks. It's a standout episode that showcases the show's unique brand of humor and heart.

The finale of Futurama was just as a hilarious affair, fitting for a show that had been making audiences laugh for years.

It all started with Bender discovering that he had a backup copy of his brain, stored in a remote facility. When he activates it, a duplicate Bender is created, causing chaos all around. Meanwhile, the rest of the characters are dealing with a massive invasion of killer robots.

In the heat of the battle, Bender discovers that the only way to save the day is to merge his duplicate back into his original self. However, he's hesitant because it would mean giving up all the adventures he had with his duplicate.

Fry comes up with a solution: why not make two Benders, two Frys, two Leelas, and so on, so that everyone can have their own duplicate? And thus, the universe was filled with an infinite number of Bender and Fry adventures.

And with that, Futurama ended on a high note, leaving fans in stitches and ready for even more wacky hijinks in the future. It was a fitting farewell for a show that never failed to make us laugh.

I'm not sure what finale you're describing here, but the latest Futurama finale was called "Meanwhile". It showed Fry & Lela growing old together, then The Professor showed up to take them back to the past.

I'm not sure where you get your info but Planet Express isn't run by Leela when Fry & Bender join. It was Run By Professor Farnsworth when Bender, Fry & Leela join. Also Fry Meets Leela before he meets Bender.

I had to stop reading after the 2nd paragraph the details are soo wrong it isn't even funny at that point. Zoidberg is no scientist he is the company Doctor who actually doesn't have his degree in medicine. It is later revealed by Dr. Z that his doctorate is in Art History in the episode about Leonardo Davinci and they travel to planet Davinci.

The show's finale with Fry and Leela growing old together after freezing time, before returning to where they started out. It's a perfect finale that leaves the door opened for a revival, and they really should have left it dead there.
