Futurama Outlook on FOX

We're back for tomorrow's Futurama episode "Less than Hero" and now will have a look into the future ...

Sun 02nd: FUTURAMA "Less Than Hero"
Sun 09th: NO FUTURAMA * "The Simpsons - Helter Shelter"
Sun 16th: FUTURAMA "Teenage Mutant Leela"

We previously told you that there would be Futurama on the 9th - which was what FOX planned at that time. Now they decided to kick it and show a Simpsons rerun instead.
* UPDATE: And just now, FOX says they will be airing Futurama on the 9th. We'll have a look at it in a few days when things settled.

Futurama Comic 11

While in our mourning-mode, we sort of forgot that issue 11 of the Futurama comic was released a week ago. Go buy it and then give some feedback by rating and reviewing it. As for the story (written by show writer and producer Patric Verrone):
Fry catches a cold. One problem. The cure for the common cold was discovered and then forgotten hundreds of years ago. Now the 20th century virus is wreaking havoc on the 30th century populace, and there's only one race that can save New New York City... the sewer mutants!
Our reader and guestbook entry #1 writer Nina aka FrysGIRL managed to get her Futurama Tattoos printed among the fan mail.

Futurama Article in USA Today

The upcoming US Futurama DVD set release also has the added advantage of Futurama getting more press exposure. USA Today's Bill Keveney quotes Matt Groening in today's "'Futurama' hits DVD, but show comes to close" article:
"I've gotten more response since it's been on Cartoon Network than in its years on Fox," Groening says. "It's so refreshing to have a network that appreciates the show." [...] The last of Futurama's 72 episodes will provide some closure, but he wishes the show could have continued: "We had so many more stories we were eager to tell."
Going along with Groening's impression, Cartoon Network today posts another success story regarding Futurama:
The Sunday telecast of Futurama scored its highest delivery and rating yet on Cartoon Network with adults 18-34, adults 18-24 and men 18-24. Among adults 18-34, the 1.0 rating was up 233% vs. last year.
The problematic scheduling and promotion situation is addressed in the article, too.

130,000+ Signature Petition Delivered

After a year of watching the petition grow beyond all our expectations, time was running out and it had to be delivered. So, a week ago we had our L.A. guy Jon walk to a print shop with a CDR in his hands. Back at home a day later, two pages of selected quotes by fans, a title page explaining the situation and a neat red ribbon were added to the pile of 1400+ sheets of paper filled with over 130,000 signatures. Going from there, the stack went to Groening's office at the FOX building and was then carried over to FOX CEO Gail Berman's desk yesterday. Let's hope it does trigger some thoughts about where things went wrong for Futurama and how to solve the problems at hand without disappointing the audience.

I'd also like to use this news item to thank petition-online for their service and support throughout that year. If you have a few dollars to donate to them, feel free to do so.

Futurama Outlook on FOX

The FOX site still says that there's Futurama on tomorrow, but everything else says no (TVGuide and the local FOX affiliate schedules). So:

Sun 09th: NO FUTURAMA "The Simpsons - Helter Shelter"
Sun 16th: NO* FUTURAMA "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles"
Sun 23rd: NO FUTURAMA "True Lies"

Also, the name for the one episode to air keeps changing. FOX lists it as "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" while others drop the "Hurdles".

The bad part is: One more pre-emption and there is no way to finish airing the last episodes by end of May anymore.

* UPDATE: Was too good to be true. Got replaced by Simpsons.

WGA Award for Ken Keeler / Godfellas

A few hours ago, the 55th Annual Writers Guild Awards were handed out at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for outstanding achievement in writing for the screen, television, and radio. New in this case was that the animation writers got a category, too. Before they had their own, publicly less regarded awards.

Former Letterman, PJ and Simpsons writer Ken Keeler beat the tough competition of three Simpsons episodes, one King of the Hill and 'Santa, Baby!' to the WGA Award for writing in animation on television with his work for (one of my personal favourites) "Futurama - Godfellas".

This means that Futurama won or helped people win the following awards since its production stop:
  • Emmy Award for "Roswell that ends well"
  • Annie Award for Rich Moore's directing work
  • AWC Lifetime Achievement Award for P. Verrone
  • AWG Award for Ken Keeler / Godfellas
    and was nominated (without winning, but still a big recognition) for:
  • Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Animation

    Congrats to Ken!

    Maurice LaMarche on voice acting

    The Toronto Star has a story on Maurice LaMarche and his voice acting in different cartoons. On Futurama he's responsible for Morbo, Kif and smaller characters like the Hedonismbot.
    LaMarche will be all over Toronto video-store racks this month with the much-anticipated DVD release of the entire first season of the now-defunct Futurama [...].
    Are reports of the cartoon's demise premature?
    "I don't know," allows LaMarche. "There are still people holding out some hope for an 11th-hour, 59th-minute rescue. Matt (Groening) is still in there, pitching. You know, The Critic got rescued by another network (from ABC to Fox). So anything's possible, I guess."
    Read the full article by his old friend Rob Salem.

    Dexter/Rugrats Guy on Futurama

    Scott Roberts - artist and writer for the Dexter's Lab and Rugrats comics - was interviewed by Rich Watson for slushfactory and talked some about the animation industry goods and bads. The topic changes to a rather long paragraph about Futurama:
    RW: Why do you suppose Fox gave up on Futurama?

    SR: Well, I don't want to get into the dirty laundry, but some of this was already in the press - I feel that a lot of it was punishing Matt Groening for not allowing the executives to be involved in the creative end of the show. [...] I think they kinda slapped it back at him by giving him very little support, putting it in a ridiculously early time slot, where it's constantly pre-empted. You're lucky if a new season is three or four episodes.
    The interview was done in January 2003 at the Big Apple Con and published today.
    Thanks to Tom S. for the lead.

    Futurama DVD Set Contest

    With the Futurama DVD Season 1 Set release (March 25th) getting closer and closer for the USA now, Amazon lists it as #13 on the pre-order charts currently and I've even seen it in the top 10 before, too. For those without a way to buy it themselves (and other freeloaders) we now have a solution:

    Sponsored by FOX Home Entertainment, we'll hand out 5 DVD Sets to participants of our Futurama DVD Contest. What you need to do is answer the 5 trivia questions. Take your time, you only get one chance. Contest ends in a month on April 10th. More info on the contest page. Good luck.

    Coming to a GameCube near you

    While we are all waiting for the Futurama game to get in stores near us, Ign already took a first glance at the upcoming futurama game:
    The story is set up to be another classic case of saving the planet Earth from certain destruction, except with a quirky Futurama spin on things. The evil businesswoman Mom has just purchased Planet Express Deliveries from Professor Farnsworth. [...] Pretty impressive, no? Players must stop the evil Mom by joining forces with the Planet Express team, traveling back in time, and preventing the deal from happening.
    Read the full article or look at some screenshots from sci games and Gamespot The futurama action/platform game is expected on June 2003 and available on GameCube, PS2 and XBox. Thanks to Sachit Harish for the lead.

    Boobjob Beats Bender

    FOX Network changed their mind about showing Futurama this Sunday and now scheduled a third run of Marge Simpson getting breast implants to show in its place. The episode first aired in November 2002 and then again as recently as the 300th episode Sunday in February.

    The week afterwards (03/26) will be Futurama-free, too. The Oscar ceremonies are countered by FOX airing "True Lies", which incidentally pre-empted Futurama one year ago on 03/25, too.

    Now there are 9 Sundays left till end of May on which Futurama could air but 10 episodes remaining...

    UPDATE: 03/30 lists "Futurama - Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" but I'm not going to believe that anytime soon. It's also the same Sunday on which "The Pitts" is poised to premiere and use up one of Malcom's slots. Meanwhile, TVGiudeLive lists Futurama as "On indefinite hiatus".

    CGEF Interview with Ken Keeler

    The morning after Futurama writer and executive producer Ken Keeler won the 55th Annual WGA Award for writing Godfellas, I sought to get a small interview with him for CGEF. Roughly a week later, I can present you this not all that small Q & A session going from background information about Ken and Futurama over the WGA ceremony to details on Godfellas (including removed scenes) and some (non-story telling) bits about Futurama's final episode to be: "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings".

    Interesting side note is that he (and others I know of) monitors the online fans now and then. So watch your potty mouth when writing a comment

    Groening bashes FOX Network

    An article titled "Keeping in 'Toon" on the canadian site canoe.ca gives us some information about Groening's thoughts on FOX and our delivered petition:
    "The people at Fox didn't ever support the show and it wasn't to their taste and, in my opinion, they're out of their minds. [...]
    The fans loved (Futurama), but they couldn't find it. It never got promoted. The fans delivered a petition with 130,000 signatures and there was no reaction from Fox.
    We won the Emmy for best animated show a few months ago and I didn't even get a begrudging phone call from anyone at Fox. That's a dark company that they can't even make a fake phone call."
    Harsh words showing the frustration of Futurama's creator. We ourselves never got a response regarding the petition, either.

    In other news: Marge's chest size didn't reflect in the ratings. With a 5.1/8 Nielsen primetime metered market rating it fell considerably from the previous week (5.8/9), was easily beaten by King of the Hill's 5.5/9 and only 0.1 higher than the last Futurama episode (5.0/8), which ran without any notable promotion I know of.

    Futurama Outlook on FOX

    Seeing that the last two schedules were changed on the Thursday before a new episode should have aired, the following is to be read with some suspicion.

    Sun 23rd: NO FUTURAMA "Jurassic Park 2" *
    Sun 30th: FUTURAMA "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles"
    Sun 06th: FUTURAMA "The Why of Fry"

    The Why of Fry will supposedly bring some plot lines regarding Fry's and the Nibblonians' role in the universe to a close.

    * Used to be "True Lies". Maybe they didn't want to make a trend out of opposing the Oscars with Arnie.

    Where the Futurama is now

    With the DVD set being out, there comes some extra publicity for the show. IMDb had it on its front page (though they misspelled Leela as "Lena"), amazon.com currently has it on sales rank 5 in the top selling DVDs, several DVD sites posted reviews of the set (all of them pretty much praising the it) and the LA Times/CalendarLive has a Futurama feature called "Where the 'Futurama' is now" in which they quote Groening on his feelings towards Futurama:
    "I feel about 'Futurama' the way Paul McCartney must feel about Wings. It's tough to compare anything to 'The Simpsons,' but I'm incredibly proud of 'Futurama.' The show is still alive, even though it's no longer supported by its original network, Fox. It's on Cartoon Network now. We're still working on 'Futurama' comic books and toys, and we've been talking about 'Futurama' movies. Just a few days ago, fans of the program submitted a petition to save it that had 130,000 signatures. Even by TV standards that's pretty amazing."
    The article continues with different persons' views on the creation process of Futurama.
    This also answers the "will comics continue" question and confirms that the much rumoured about Futurama Movie is at "talking about" levels, but no further yet.

    No Futurama during May Sweeps?

    Quoting FOX as the source, The Futon Critic announces that Futurama will be replaced with Simpsons and King of the Hill reruns throughout May sweeps.
    FOX will have a backlog of fresh episodes of both "Futurama" and "Cedric the Entertainer Presents" for the summer. [...] "Futurama" will be pre-empted for the entire May sweeps period (April 24 - May 21) as at least six episodes of the animated comedy will be left in the can come June. [...] Repeats of "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill" will fill the 7:00/6:00c slot.
    This would mean that no more than 4 additional episodes could air this season. In the light of the last few weeks with Futurama being removed from the schedule a few days before it should air, it is questionable if we will see any of those this season at all. Let's hope for this Sunday.

    Emails To The Editor

    Need your help.
    Mr. Michael Giltz from the (Old) New York Post writes in his article "DVDs This Week":
    Futurama has always stood in the shadow of "The Simpsons," and rightly so. At the heart of "The Simpsons" is a warm, genuine cast of characters. At the heart of "Futurama" is merely an excuse for endless gags.
    Looking at episodes such as "Godfellas", "Time Keeps on Slipping", "Jurassic Bark", "Luck of the Fryrish" and "A Flight To Remember", he doesn't seem to have based his opinion on much Futurama watching. The entertainment editorial manager Faye Penn would probably like to hear your opinion on that matter by email. Keep it civil and make sure to include proper reference to the article and Mr. Giltz.

    Futurama Outlook on FOX

    For the first time in I don't know how many months, I can finally list 3 weeks with 3 new Futurama episodes scheduled. Mind you, they might change their mind still. Infact, one Indiana FOX affiliate lists a Simpsons rerun for tomorrow. But I guess they got it wrong.

    Sun 30th: FUTURAMA "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles"
    Sun 06th: FUTURAMA "The Why of Fry"
    Sun 13th: FUTURAMA "The Sting"

    There might be one more episode after that if the "No episodes during May sweeps" thing holds true.

    Sounds: I Second That Emotion

    Going through the missing episode quotes & sounds the other day, I added "I Second That Emotion" in which Bender flushs Nibbler down the toilet.

    Bender: "There! This'll teach those filthy bastards who's lovable." (listen)

    Unrelated: Don't forget to watch Futurama tonight. 7PM on FOX has a new episode with the crew trying an anti-aging agent while 11PM on Cartoon Network has a rerun of the Star Trek episode with many of the original cast doing the voices.

    Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles

    After only 4 weeks of waiting, the long awaited "new episode" update!
    • Reviews: A real dual-use facility! Read them and then post your own review of yesterdays episode.
    • Quotes & Sounds: Had trouble to understand why your friend (if any) laughed while you just sat there? 14 quotes to reread!
    • Frame Grabs: The usual bunch of schreen shots for referencing and freeze frame fun.
    • Capsule: Help this poor document to grow and submit references, goofs and the likes!
    Trivia and a "Dub The Frame" game will hopefully follow tomorrow.
