Buck Rogers was in the 25th Century. (Originally 2419, amended to 2429
when the comic strip started and, most recently, built all the way up to 2456)

Star Trek: The Next Generation is in the 24th Century, the actual year
obscured by the Star Date convention.

Turn A Gundam, if Tomino goes Domini, is in the 22nd Century.

But my favorite is still "Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century"....
