All hail, the NEW king of animated series.
While the later episodes of The Simpson's have suffered, Futurama has
matured, far more quickly than the Simpson's did, into a fantastic work of
The similarities between the Simpson's are obvious and not to be ignored.
show as good as The Simpson's was is ripe for theft and Futurama, the
brainchild of Matt Groening, borrows well from the former show. Bender is
the Homer Simpson, devoid of responsibility, yet, as this lack of

Jamaican limbo champion who keeps the business together and of course Zap
Brannigan, the genius of lacklustre. All of these characters are easily
match of Chief Wiggum, Smithers, Krusty, Frink, etc.
Groening, clearly by taking the best writers from the Simpson's with him
when he jumped ship, has done the impossible and found an animated series
that is superior to the unsurpassable Simpson's. Groening's world is a
one. And so is his show.
