Occasionally, before the opening credit sequence begins, the show will be "sponsored" by a futuristic sponsor advertisement. For example, "Futurama is brought to you by Glagnar's Human Rinds." The show always begins with a parody of the "Transmitted in SAP" type of show disclaimers when the title "Futurama" appears. For example, "As Seen on TV" or "Present in BC (Brain Control) Where Available".
