Futurama: A Pharaoh to Remember

After delivering an enormous sandstone to Osiris 4, Fry, Leela and Bender are forced to work as slaves assisting the construction of the great Pharaoh Hamenthotep's tomb -- a pyramid. When Bender experiences an identity crisis because he has never been an over-achiever, he becomes extremely motivated, working harder and faster than anyone for the completion of the tomb. While the Pharaoh acknowledges the crew's diligence, Bender's efforts accidentally kill him, and Bender proceeds to the throne.

Opening theme cartoon: Unknown

Alien code: When the priests go to look at the ancient markings, you can see Alien Code #1 written within the symbols. When translated they read: "Rock On! Eddie Rosas 22." Eddie Rosas appears in the final credits as a "Character Layout Artist". The "22" appears because Bender is a "Bender Unit 22."
