Season 1, Episode 1: Space Pilot 3000

Heads that I could see (not including presidents): Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Liz Taylor, Dennis Rodman, Matt Groening, Barbra Streisand... and, of course, Leonard Nimoy and Dick Clark.

When this episode first aired, a man being sucked into a transportation tube announced his destination as JFK Jr. airport. Since the death of JFK Jr., the episode has been edited so that the man's destination is Radio City Mutant Hall.
