Matt Groening named Turanga Leela after Louise Jameson's character in the British science fiction TV series Doctor Who (1963). Coincidentally, "lila" (pronounced "lila") means "purple" in Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, German and also in Hungarian (pronounced "leela").

To the flying machine!
In many episodes the Earth's knowledge of things that have happened in the past is lacking, due to an apparent loss of historical documents throughout time (for example, in Season 1 Episode 2 "The Series Has Landed" it is made clear humans don't know the exact details of the first moon landing, or in Season 5 Episode 2 "Jurassic Bark" it is unclear how a 20th century pizzeria operated,) yet many people from Fry's time period are still alive, such as Richard Nixon or Leonard Nimoy's head. Also, even though characters do not know the details of important events in or before the 20th century, many characters make references to popular songs of the past (William Shatner in Season 4 Episode 12 "Where No Fan Has Gone Before", Kif in Season 3 Episode 5 "Amazon Women In The Mood".)
During the opening, old 1930's cartoons are played on a giant monitor and are different each time. In the episode "Roswell That Ends Well", the cartoon featured in the opening was played in the episode on a small TV. Also when the title appears, a new message appears every time.
