‘Futurama’ meets ‘Dune’ in action-packed, exclusive clip

The sci-fi comedy Futurama is no stranger to Frank Herbert's Dune, featuring nods to stillsuits and space worms. But with its newly launched 11th season, Futurama takes its tributes to a whole new level.

In an exclusive clip from the upcoming “Parasites Regained” (a sequel to Season 3' “Parasites Lost,” perhaps?), we see Fry, Leela, Zoidberg, and Bender struggling to a mysterious landscape. There, they encounter a fearsome sandworm that looks like an oranger, fuzzier version of the show-stealing sandworms of Denis Villeneuve's Dune. We also get Futurama‘s version of the powerful spice melange, a that turns Leela's eyes orange instead of Dune‘s classic blue-within-blue.

But being Futurama, you know there's a ridiculous twist.

Turns out, Fry and aren't navigating the sands of a hostile . Instead, they're in Nibbler's litter box, having shrunk themselves down to figure out why he's sick.

It's probably not the best idea to inhaling all that litter box sand, but hey, anything for a sweet, sweet Dune parody.

Futurama is now streaming on Hulu, with new episodes weekly on Mondays.
