      Fry's middle initial is J. This seems to be a popular choice for Matt Groening characters, having used it for Homer, Bart and Abe on The Simpsons. Matt uses the "J." middle name, referring to one of his favourite shows, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.
      Fry also passes a three-eyed fish when going under water in the tube, this fish being 'Blinky' from The Simpsons epsiode 'Two Cars in Every Garage, Three Eyes on Every Fish.'
      The chef on the Panucci's Pizza box is very similar to the chef Luigi in The Simpsons episode 'Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song.'
      Whilst in the Head Museum, Matt Groening's head is able to be seen, as well as Rodney Dangerfield's, who is drawn as his Simpsons character Larry Burns from the episode 'Burns, Baby Burns.'
      Fry has 9 spikes in his hair just like Bart Simpson from Groening's hit show The Simpsons.
      When Fry uses the 'travel-tube,' a person who resembles Ralph Wiggum can be seen.
