FUTURAMA is a show based on the life of a 20th century boy named Fry who finds himself in the year 3000, a robot named Bender who refuses to do his job (bending girders for suicide machines), a one-eyed alien girl named Leela who deserts her occupation as a Fate Assignment Officer, and their new boss, Fry's 149-year-old great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great grandnephew Professor Farnsworth, whose rocketship they are now the new crew of. Fry and Bender are now roomates, and the four of them get along with each other really well.

(Philip J.) FRY

Frozen in a cryogenics lab after delivering a pizza to a prank caller in 1999; thawed in the year 2999, he was a delivery boy for Panucci's Pizza. He is now a 31st century delivery boy for Planet Express. He has had three cola-induced heart attacks in high school, and prefers TV shows that begin in "World's" and end is something like "Funniest guitars" or something stupid like that.

(Taronga) LEELA
Originally a Fate Assignment Officer, the person who assigns your fate and occupation to you, she is now the captain of the Planet Express delivery ship. She is legally a "One-eyed resident alien", and is a Martial arts expert. What does she look for in a mate? Someone who's adventurous, self-confident, and "maybe a snappy dresser" (anyone BUT Zap!). She is a big Blernsball fan and has poor depth perception (for obvious reasons)

BENDER (Unit 22)
A former Girder Bender for suicide machines, he is now a member of the rocket crew. His main power source is alcohol, and he harbors a secret desire to be a folksinger. He celebrates "Robanukah," the holiest two weeks on the robot calendar, and is addicted to soap operas, especially "All My Circuits."

Professor Farnsworth
A scientist and the owner of Planet Express, an intergalactic delivery company, he enjoys Spaceship construction and wire collecting. He is Fry's 149-year-old great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great - great grandnephew (yes that's 30 'great's!). He is also the inventor of the Smelloscope instrument, used in the detection of heavenly body odors
