Futurama Fan Club
- Me, Myself, and I
- Futurama is set at the beginning of the 31st century. Many problems that exist in the world today are heavily parodied in the show. Global warming, inflexible bureaucracy, and substance abuse are a few of the things given a 31st century exaggeration in a world where the problems have become much more extreme, yet a part of normal everyday life. In a stab at segregation, the human prejudice against mutants is so great that the latter have been forced to live underground in the sewers. The characters' home on earth is the city of New New York; built over the ruins of modern day New York City.
Numerous technological advances have been made by the 30th century. The ability to keep heads alive in jars has resulted in many of today's political figures and celebrities being active in 30th century.

Philip J Fry was born in 1974. He suffered 3 heart attacks in high school after drinking 100 cans of Cola a week. After dropping out of Coney Island college he took three years off during which he continuously watched TV, knowing that someday it would help him save the world. He then got a job delivering pizzas for Panuccis Pizza during which, on December 31 1999, he got frozen while delivering a pizza to Applied Cryogenics. Leaving his two-timing girlfriend Michelle behind he woke up on December 31 2999.
Professor Farnsworth is his great (x30) nephew. In the 20th century he had one brother called Yancy who missed Fry so much when he was frozen, presumed dead, that he named his son Philip to 'carry on the memory of his lost brother'. Currently, he lives with Bender in the Robot Arms Appartments and enjoys watching TV and drinking Slurm. Although he had affairs with Amy before, the woman he is really into is Leela who acknowledges his feelings but won't return them.
