Production[edit]

A design of the Alien pet released by Countdown to Futurama on 3 May 2012. [1]

The Alien pet was first seen in a design released by Countdown to Futurama on 3 May 2012. [1] In a podcast released five days later, Futurama co-creator David X. Cohen said that "[the pet was] probably the least important character ever to appear on Futurama, at least, until it [came] back again", that "the very first sentence of the very first script of [season 7]" read "a few people jog and walk their Alien pets in the peaceful, early light" and that the pet would be "on screen for about four seconds". [2]
