Futurama (1999)

Hell is Other Robots - S1-E9

Trivia: In the original ending for this episode (as seen in the DVD's deleted scenes), Bender says he'll be less like his old self when robot hell freezes over, to which Fry replies that it does freeze over during the winter. He reads this out of a book. In the aired ending, when Leela asks Bender to be less like his old self, he asks her if she could stand a 100' drop (or something), and Fry says "Good ol' Bender." However, you can still see the book in his hand from the original ending.

Xofer

Trivia: For those that haven't read the book, the creators of the Marauders Map are none other than young Remus Lupin (Moony), Peter Pettigrew (Wormtail), Sirius Black (Padfoot) and James Potter (Prongs); the names come from their animal forms (James Potter's was a stag).

Xofer

Trivia: With the possible exception of the Weather Channel at the end, all the news channels shown are owned by News Corp (who owns 20th Century Fox, the distributor).
