The street-racing gang consists of four members — a man with a tattoo, a man with glasses, a girl, who is named Minx, and a man with dreadlocks, who is presumably Minx's boyfriend (which would suggest that his name is Benny). [7ACV15] According to the man with the tattoo, they usually rap about their problems. Smitty and URL have been trying to bust them for years.

Professor Farnsworth joined the gang in 3013, and the gang briefly replaced Fry, Leela, Bender, and him in the Planet Express crew while they were in the second dimension.

Production[edit]

The man with glasses and Minx were first seen in a preview clip for broadcast season 10, in February 2013. [2] In April, the full gang was featured in a preview clip for 7ACV15. [3] In May, Countdown to Futurama released concept art of one of the gang's hovercars. [1] In June, Countdown to Futurama released a promo based on the 7ACV15 clip. [4]

Additional information[edit]
