    Three views of the GM Futurama – a pavilion created by GM at 1939 New York World’s Fair.
    The name of the animated TV series Futurama comes from this pavilion.( as also anything with the suffix, ‘rama’)
    The TV series has made a comeback this very day in form of a full length DVD release, hence in the news!
