On Professor Farnsworth's 150th birthday, the Planet Express crew goes to Mars University to attend a party held in his honor. After the party, he reveals his latest creation: his 12-year-old clone, Cubert Farnsworth (Kath Soucie). The crew can't take the clone's obnoxious behavior and the Professor is distraught to learn that Cubert doesn't even want to be a scientist. Wanting to end his life, the Professor heads out to the Near Death Star, a place where people over the age of 160 go to die -- it turns out he had been lying about his age in order to avoid going there. The crew finds out where he is and heads out to rescue him. "A Clone of My Own" is the first Futurama episode to acknowledge the progression of time, as this episode takes place in the year 3001.
