'Futurama' | 1999
The cars of the year 3000 are practically interchangeable with spaceships as portrayed in "Futurama," another TV cartoon series from the mind of "The Simpson" creator Matt Groening. With so many methods of transportation available -- personal pneumatic tubes, spacecraft, hovering cars and even Segways -- cars are not the main vehicle of choice. All the same, they can fly like rockets and protect passengers from the vacuum of deep space or the surface of Mercury. Some -- like the Thundercougarfalconbird -- feature drink blenders, video conferencing and toasters.
