    • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
      Aside from having the same type of premise as Douglas Adams' novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Bender acts much like the cynical manic depressive, Marvin the robot, and the coffee machine in Professor Farnsworth's ship is a reference to "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" in which a spaceship's specialty was producing hot drinks.
