'''Urectum''' (formerly '''Uranus''') is a gas giant in the [[solar system]].  The planet's former name, Uranus, was often of the cause of much laughter in the immature [[English language|English]]-speaking world, where its name could be interpreted as "your anus".  However, by [[2620]], scientists finally got tired of that "stupid joke", so they renamed Uranus to Urectum, believing the revised name to be much less funny.
== Production ==
The planet of Urectum has never actually been visited during the course of the series, and after its mention in "[[A Big Piece of Garbage]]", it has never been mentioned again, as it cannot be used as a joke, due to its renaming.<ref name="ep8-com-dxc">{{cite commentary |speaker={{n|Cohen|David|X.}} |episode=A Big Piece of Garbage |volume=One |disc=2}}</ref> It did, however, briefly appear in "[[In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela]]", in a hologram of the solar system.
== Additional info ==
=== Trivia ===
*The effort to change the planet's name was futile, as the Uranus joke could still be made, since "rectum" is synonymous with "anus".
=== Quotes ===
<poem>'''[[Philip J. Fry|Fry]]''': Oh, man, [[Smell-O-Scope|this]] is great! Hey, as long as you don't make me smell Uranus.
''[He laughs.]''
'''[[Turanga Leela|Leela]]''': I don't get it.
'''[[Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth|Farnsworth]]''': I'm sorry, Fry, but astronomers renamed Uranus in 2620 to end that stupid joke once and for all..
'''Fry''': Oh. What's it called now?
'''Farnsworth''': Urectum.</poem>
