Every Twilight Zone Episode Parodied By Futurama’s The Scary Door
On "Futurama," the couch potato characters sometimes watch a TV show called "The Scary Door," a take on "The Twilight Zone," complete with a Rod Serling-like announcer.
There were several "Scary Door" segments throughout "Futurama," each one of them spoofing a specific episode of "The Twilight Zone" or some other notable sci-fi classic.
In the “Futurama” episode, "I Dated a Robot," there were several nods to the “Twilight Zone” like "A Nice Place To Visit," when a gambler dies and awakens in an afterlife casino.
The gambler sees a monster on the wing of a plane like "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," but when he calls for help, he realizes he is Adolf Hitler, like "The Man in the Bottle."
"Twilight Zone" fans are probably familiar with the episode "Time Enough at Last," where Burgess Meredith plays a loner who prefers the company of books over people.
After an atomic bomb wipes out humanity, Burgess is in solitude, but his glasses break, and he can no longer read. The "Scary Door" version was called "A Head at the Polls."
"Benderama" spoofs the "Twilight Zone" episode "The Brain Center at Whipple's," in which Mr. Whipple (Richard Deacon) replaces factory workers with robots.
