In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela Futurama episode

I couldn't find any clips off Youtube but this is the name of the episode that Alan said about in the tutorial earlier. It's a good episode definately worth a watch.


In the episode, Zapp Brannigan and Leela end up on a Garden of Eden-like world after fighting a planet-destroying satellite called V-Giny.

Cultural references -

The episode title itself is a spoof of Iron Butterfly's 1968 song "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (originally titled "In the Garden of Eden"). The episode makes references to the typical 1950s B-Movie serials with Zapp Brannigan's dreams.[3] Zapp and Leela are in an Adam and Eve type planet and take on the roles while on the planet.[3] The Death Sphere is a reference to "Death Star" in Star Wars,[4] its creation and its name are a reference to V′Ger in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It is also a reference to the Star Trek: The Original Series episodes "The Changeling" (in reference to the fact that the V-chip and the USAF Flying Destiny colliding like the Nomad probe) and "The Doomsday Machine" (an ancient military starship that has gone rogue and destroyed several planets, before heading toward the Federation). Hermes uses a reference database called Janeway's Guide, a portmanteau of Jane's Fighting Ships and Kathryn Janeway.[5]
