The Statue of Liberty is a landmark from Old New York, a statue depicting a woman holding aloft a torch and a tablet with the date of the Declaration of Independence. It was given to the United States by France in 1886. Unlike many of Old New York's other structures, it survived the multiple invasions between 2000 and 2999.
During the first Omicronian invasion, the Statue was badly damaged, including a fire and the loss of its torch-bearing arm.
Background Notes and Trivia Edit
- The Statue of Liberty has presented an interesting continuity problem for Futurama. In "Space Pilot 3000", the statue is shown holding a section of the tube system. Yet in every subsequent episode she appears in, she is holding her traditional torch on a futuristic pedestal on Liberty Island. To further complicate matters, she can be seen holding a laser on her original pedestal on a submerged island in the opening credits.
