Leela's costume choice is inspired by the popular female heroines that have graced famous science fiction films. Starting in the pilot episode, she takes off her jacket to reveal a white tank top underneath. The fashion is believed to have originated with Sigourney Weaver
(1979) and has been copied by Linda Hamilton
in Terminator 2
(1991) and Carrie-Anne Moss
in Red Planet
(2000). See more

Occasionally, before the opening credit sequence begins, the show will be "sponsored" by a futuristic sponsor advertisement. For example, "Futurama is brought to you by Glagnar's Human Rinds." The show always begins with a parody of the "Transmitted in SAP" type of show disclaimers when the title "Futurama" appears. For example, "As Seen on TV" or "Present in BC (Brain Control) Where Available". See more
