Futurama is an animated science-fiction sitcom by The Simpsons creator Matt Groening. Following the adventures of hapless delivery boy Fry, cyclops pilot Leela, and beer-swilling robot Bender after the former is cyrogenically frozen and wakes up in the 31st century, the series was canceled and resurrected twice over the course of its sporadic 1999-2013 run, airing on FOX, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block and finally Comedy Central.

TV series

I Dated a Robot (S03E15)

One of the Liubots gets stuck to a fire hydrant and fills up with water until she bursts.

Later on, the gang's attempt to stop the remaining Liubots is thwarted when they swallow the popcorn seeds. Fry's Liubot saves the day by aiming the movie projector at the Liubots, making the popcorn pop and causing them to explode.

Anthology of Interest II (S04E08)

In the first segment, I, Meatbag, Bender experiences life as a human after testing Professor Farnsworth's new reverse fossilization machine, which can turn metal robots into flesh-and-blood life forms, and eventually gains over a thousand pounds. Unfortunately, he dies afterwards.

Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles (S04E09)

The gang try to make Professor Farnsworth younger by using age-reducing tar, but an accident happens and they all end up covered in it. The tar changes their bodies to exactly match how they looked when they were younger; because of this, Amy is fat again.

The Sting (S04E12)

When Bender steals her body, Amy uses Leela's body to get a discount at the theater and digest her food but also pig out on all the high-calorie foods she usually denies herself, fattening up until, according to Hermes, she "makes Fat Albert look like Regular Albert." Amy agrees to take Hermes' body so he can lose Leela's weight.

Later, Farnsworth bloats up briefly in Bender's body when he swallows a bomb at a circus.
