Additional Info[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • The choice of Rosie on Futurama is noteworthy, as Matt Groening early on made it clear that they didn't want Futurama to be a utopia like The Jetsons or a dystopia like Blade Runner.[1] While it cannot be confirmed, the choice of Rosie being admitted to the HAL Institute could be a reference to The Jetsons' usual view of the future as a utopia, where an event of Rosie killing Astro and Elroy would not happen.
