Appearances[edit | edit source]
Matt Groening has broken the fourth wall in Futurama multiple times by including his own head.
Futurella[edit | edit source]
In the episode "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences", Matt Groening's head proposed a show called Futurella. The show is similar to Futurama except that it takes place in the year 4000 instead of the year 3000, effectively making it the Futurama of Futurama. In the episode, Matt is seen with the rest of the Futurama team's heads announcing the show at Comic Con. The intro for Futurama is displayed on the screens briefly, but with the name changed, before the screen simply goes dark and the word "CANCELLED" appears on it in white, causing Matt to comment that "Fox has really streamlined the whole process." He then starts taking questions that he prefers and then shoots Bender when he asks if he's making a second Simpsons Movie.
