|First appearance||"Leela and the Genestalk" (7ACV22)|
Momsanto is Mom's floating genetic-engineering facility. It floats because if it were on the surface its experiments would be illegal.
In 3013, Leela climbed a beanstalk in front of Planet Express, which ended up collapsing under its own weight, and she discovered the facility. [7ACV22] Mom's sons captured her, and she was locked in a tower, where she gave a D.N.A. sample. After being rescued by Fry and Bender, she attempted to stop Mom by crashing the facility into New New York, but was not successful.
Creatures in the facility
- Flying fish
- Kissing roses
- A unicorn
- Adam West and Burt Ward's heads
- Finn and Jake
- A crocodile with wings
Mom is also planning to breed a giant cat to drag things in.
Colossus is Momsanto's beanstalk project.
Because Mom considers ordinary beans tiny and pathetic, Momsanto spliced elephant D.N.A. into their chromosomes for added heft.
Thanks to Leela's D.N.A. sample, the beanstalks started to have suction cups to keep them from collapsing. This unlocked a cheap, abundant source of nutrition for the world's starving masses, which should make Mom a much richer woman. As a reward, Mom cured Leela of her squidification.
- Momsanto is a parody of the agricultural-biotechnology corporation Monsanto.
- The concept of a castle in the clouds may be a reference to the 1986 film Castle in the Sky. The concept of a flying castle may be a reference to the 1986 novel and 2004 film Howl's Moving Castle.
Leela: It's some kinda deluxe apartment in the sky!
