The Cookieville Minimum-Security Orphanarium (CMSO) is an orphanage located in New New York. Due to a severe staffing problem, they provide a cold and uncaring environment for children. It is the orphanarium where Leela was left as a small child.
When invited back to the orphanarium as part of a reunion celebration, Leela is officially recognized as one of the most successful orphans. During this time Bender overhears talk of the government grants one can receive if one adopts a child. This encourages him to adopt twelve of the current orphans. Later, he returns the children to the orphanarium along with a donation of $1200 in compensated support payments. In response to this large donation, Warden Vogel renamed the building the Bender Bending Rodríguez Orphanarium.
The name of the orphanarium was apparently changed back at some point. Though the reason for the name change isn't explained in any episode, the sign out front once again reads: Cookieville Minimum-Security Orphanarium in later episodes.
The orphans have no books to read, because they ate them to avoid starvation.
Abner Doubledeal uses the orphans to conduct audience research for television shows. Leela met him at the orphanarium while she was telling a story about The Humplings. Abner Doubledeal turned it into a TV show on Tickleodeon.
Sally was inspired by Leela to write her own story. This caused Leela to be overcome with guilt and reveal The Humplings were real aliens she had been stealing stories from.
When Leela revealed this, Abner Doubledeal made a deal with The Humplings to film their lives for television. He adopted all the orphans to work for the show on the planet Rumbledeehump.
