Jump to: navigation, search

This article is about the opening cartoons seen in most Futurama episodes at the opening sequence on the video screen the Planet Express ship crashes into.

Episodes from the first four seasons usually contain an opening cartoon. In season 5, which featured 4 direct-to-DVD films split into 4 episodes each, parts 2, 3, and 4 of the films Bender's Game and Into the Wild Green Yonder did not feature opening cartoons. In season 6, most opening sequences are cut short, leaving out the cartoon. Of season 6, only "Rebirth", "That Darn Katz!", "Benderama", "Yo Leela Leela", and "All the Presidents' Heads" had opening cartoons. Of broadcast season 9, only "Decision 3012" and "Viva Mars Vegas" feature an opening cartoon. "Naturama" features an alternate opening sequence, and the camera zooms out at the end to reveal that it is being broadcast on the video screen.
