    Futurama - Stab at DL - Hidden Details

    In one of the first episodes of Futurama, there is a stab at DL, with "Luna Park", however, there are a few little details that showed the writered were DL fans of their own:

    -In the scene where Mr. Moonsman is talking to Fry, there's a green door sitting behind him with a 33 logo, a clear homage to Club 33

    -Threw the glass, a clear obvious stab at the Rocket Jets are there.

    There are many others, I have to go over the synced copy I have.

    That episode was on last night on cartoon network...How weird? They infact poke fun (not stab- that an OJ thing) at Disneyland.
    *They go on a hybred POTC ride about whalers who first found the moon
    *Also they attend a Bear Country Jamboree show hosted by moon golfers
    *Main Street was replaced by Moon Street.

    I think Simpsons/Futurama writers have a lot of affinty for the Disney parks if you harken back to early Simpson when the visited both Duff Land and Itchy and Scratchy World. Clearly ISW was a mock up of the Magic Kingdom and even poked fun at the then poorly attended DisneyParis by cutting to ISW Paris with a single over exagerated Frenchmen at the gates saying "My wife and kids need cheese and wine!" *in thick French accent.

    Yes I believe Simpson writers were inspired by Disneyland and there fun pokes are mearly jests at a knowing audience.

    Don't forget when Homer was running with his mom from the police and said "I'm going to hide you where there's no one for miles. Disney's California Adventure!"

    But pity the warrior who has slain all his enemies.

    And when they all took a trip to prison to visit sideshow Bob:

    Marge: DO you think this is an appropriate place to bring our children?

    Homer: Hey, it's better than Disney's California Adventure

    Marge, Lisa and Bart: Yeah!

    The producers of the show are definitely inspired by Disneyland. In fact, the "B-Sharps" Barber Shop Quartet is voiced by the Daper Dans who were discovered by an executive Simpsons producer on Main Street.
