Today I read about Philo Farnsworth, teenage american inventor of the TV. It reminded me that the inventor in Futurama is also named Farnsworth, probably not a coincidence...
I like Futurama, it has very smart references and in-jokes for scientists. Check out this webpage and links inside for some of that. Dave Bacon also points out to a reference to a near-failure of Fermat's theorem in a Simpson's episode.
