What is Futurama about?

Futurama is an animated sit-com created by Matt Groening that aired between 1999 and 2013. The sci-fi comedy follows the adventures of pizza-boy, Philip J. Fry, who stumbles into a freezer and is accidentally cryogenically preserved for… 1,000 years, before being revived in the 31st Century.
