"Futurama" (Season Seven Premiere)

In 2011, the series earned two Emmy(R) Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for Maurice LaMarche. "Futurama" follows the life of Philip J. Fry (Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who accidentally stumbles into a freezer on December 31, 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later. In his future home of New New York City, Fry goes to work for the Planet Express Intergalactic delivery company, where he befriends Bender (John DiMaggio), a booze-fueled robot, and sets his romantic sights on Leela (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops who enjoys beating him up.
