Futurama: Jurassic Bark

Fry and Bender discover that the exact pizzeria Fry worked at before coming to the 30th century is on display as part of a 20th century exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. Fry is horrified when he sees his dog, Seymour, petrified among the artifacts in the exhibit. Fry reacts with protest and learns that there is a possibility to clone his "best friend" back to life. Bender perceives Seymour as a threat to his friendship with Fry and gets his own Robo-puppy as competition.

Episode Notes
Opening theme promotion: NOT AFFILIATED WITH FUTURAMA BRASS KNUCKLE CO.

Opening theme cartoon: "Hiss and Make Up" by the Warner Brothers (1943)

LOOK HARD: If you look very closely, you can see the shadows of Nibble and Fry when Fry falls into the cryogenic machine, as well as Nibbler's eyestalk. Previously, in "Space Pilot 3000", only Nibbler's shadow could be seen, not Fry's. It will be explained in a future episode "The Why of Fry", when Nibbler takes Fry back to view his own past.

This episode was nominated for the Outstanding Animated Program Emmy but lost to The Simpsons.

The title of this episode is a parody of the 1993 film 'Jurassic Park'



Episode References
When Fry is remembering his final pizza delivery to the cryogenic building, you can see Nibbler's eyestalk sticking out of the trash can, and you can see his shadow along with Fry's when Fry gets knocked out of the chair into the cryogenic freezer.
