Comedy Central Pictures from 'Futurama,' including Leela, Fry, Bender and the Professor Futurama is the sci fi cartoon from the creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening. The show aired sporadically from 1999 to 2003. Unfortunately, Fox treated it much as it used to treat Family Guy; Futurama was put on hiatus frequently and its timeslot changed far too often. So eventually, Futurama was canceled. And again, much like Family Guy, Futurama has proven its popularity with good ratings on Adult Swim, with Bender emerging as a favorite character. The ratings have convinced Fox execs to greenlight some straight-to-DVD Futurama movies. Here's hoping they're as great as the original show.
