The inclusion of owls in Futurama may be a subtle parody of the role of owls in Phillip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep." In that story, owls were the first animal to succumb to environmental degradation and were extremely rare or in fact extinct. Futurama's inclusion of owls as a ubiquitous pest species seemingly illustrates just how wrong Mr. Dick's view of the future was.
