So I was watching Luck of the Fryrish and noticed that when the doctor was lifting baby Fry, he lifted him in such a way that suggest Fry had a breeched birth (feet first instead of head first) 🤔 Has anyone noticed this?
I need to say something... I don't even know of people actually care... But my blogs URL isn't only "The-not-so-silent-back-up" because i love jaskier no because i won't be silent either.
So lately I've been reblogging some futurama posts (maybe you have noticed, and if not that's also okay) so i kinda feel like i should explain myself.
So when before i had a tumblr blog which also means before the hunger games (my first fandom ever) i watched futurama a lot, and when i say a lot i mean A LOT, i told my parents i got so much homework only that i can watch futurama in peace. I was 14 y/o i didn't understood half of the jokes but I loved it, I loved the characters, I loved that there is an actual storyline and in loved fry and leelas relationship. Looking back i know that i shipped them, a lot, but in that time i didn't knew that word or what it meant. But i guess the show wasn't that popular in Germany and it wasn't on tv as much as the Simpsons... so "cough" i watched it on the Internet. But at some point there weren't new episodes available for me. So after rewatching my favorites over and over again i stopped watching futurama.
But last Christmas (😅) my mom got us disney + as a gift and now that futurama is on there i immediately rewatched it because now i can actually finish the whole show. And now i only have three episodes left and i feels kinda sad because it's over soon but i am also happy because i can rewatch it whenever i want and this will be totally one of my comfort shows because these stupid little cartoon characters never fail to make me laugh.
And now that i am older i understand the jokes and love the characters even more because even though its a adult cartoon they are all have a good heart and just try their best to save their friends and families and sometimes the whole universe.
This is more Frender proof, BUT, if you haven’t watched Disenchantment PLEASE do not read on, I am using some of its storyline for further evidence. It’s not my fault if I spoil you.
If you have watched Disenchantment and Futurama, or do not care for spoilers, you’re welcome to read on!
Don’t you find it a little odd how the main trios of Futurama and Disenchantment correspond to each other, keeping in mind that they’re by the same creators?
Take this: Bean = Leela (badass girl with family issues), Luci = Bender (smokes, drinks, makes dark and sarcastic jokes and pretends to hate their friends but proves to love them later on), Elfo = Fry (idiotic bb but such a sweetheart).
Are you seeing this or am I just tripping!?
There’s also a couple parallels between them;
Bender flying Fry and Leela out of Robot Hell (left) VS Luci flying Elfo’s soul and Bean out of Hell (right).
Elfo in the red tubes from Heaven to Hell (left) VS Fry in the light turquoise tubes in NNYC (right).
There’s most likely WAY more references between these characters and I couldn’t find any images that show Bean and Leela being similar, but I’m hoping you now get the idea.
Now we can hopefully get on with this uh… I’m trying not to sound like a teacher XD
At the first season, we can see how Elfo and Bean could end up together (which I personally think would be a stupid idea lmao) Just. Like. Freela. Guess what it is???
Elfo/Fry gazing away at Bean/Leela,
Luci/Bender usually just shaking their head,
Bean/Leela ignoring and/or not realising Elfo’s/Fry’s attempts.
Elfo and Bean kiss twice and it seems like they are together but then the writers swiftly change lanes and start to make Bean a bisexual bitch (like she full on deserves!!!).
So what I’m saying is that maybe the writers of Disenchantment maybe were going to make Bean and Elfo be a couple, realising that it would be a mistake to have the exact same concept and have their main character be heterosexual like they’ve done with every other show.
They didn’t do this in Futurama since it would’ve decreased the amount of sales because then it would’ve been the late 1990s - early 2010s, where homophobia was more uncommon, but not non-existing — not to mention that the AIDS pandemic was only a couple of years back.
Einstein is a hard name to remember, isn’t it?

Let’s go down cartoon memory lane with this scene from Futurama featuring professor Farnsworth and Fry! I had a lot of fun making this illustration because it made me feel very nostalgic. I miss Futurama. A lot. 🚀
