Futurama (1999)

2 questions in season 2

Fry and the Slurm Factory - S2-E4

Question: Is there supposed to be a special reason for the professor to hate the grunka-lunkas - other than that they annoy with their singing?

Chosen answer: It's just funny that he would hate them so much, for no apparent reason, that he wants someone to actually inform the grunka-lunkas of his hatred for them.


Mars University - S2-E2

Question: When they pass in front of the library, there are only two books "Fiction" and "Non-fiction". I remember seeing something similar in a science-fiction film when I was a kid. A man says something like "All the knowledge of the Martians is contained in this disc". Is it a reference to this film, and if so, what is its name?

Dr Wilson

Chosen answer: I don't know that it is a reference, but it sounds like you are thinking of The Martian Chronicles.
