Futurama Easter Egg - Phil Hartman
The late Phil Hartman had two semi-regular charecters on The Simpsons. and became a friend to creator Matt Groening. When Futurama was being created Groening made a charecter especially for Hartman. He would't even have to audition for it. But after he died the part was recast and Fry's unspoken first name became Phillip in honor of the great actor. Also Fry's middle initial J. is in honor of Rocky and Bullwinkle creator Jay Ward.
On an interesting note: this egg was added to the database on Phil Hartman's birthday September 24.
