Futurama Figures
In stores this June are the neatorific new Futurama I-Men Figurines. Two figures per blister card: Fry & Calculon. Bender & Robot Devil, Leela & Roberto, Zoidberg & Morbo, Professor & URL. Hopefully if these sell well, we'll get a second wave of these figures with some other characters like Zapp, Kif, Amy, and Scruffy. To get an idea of what the casing will look like, check out Action-Figure.com. If you want the entire set, you can pre-order it for 30$US at BigBadToyStore.com, or you can wait until it hits stores and retails for about 5$ or 7$ per set of two.

FUTURAMA COMICS #17
By Boothby & Delaney
Fry, Leela, Bender, and Cubert return to Earth from last issue's outer space adventure at boarding school only to find the planet Earth complete uninhabited. But before they can figure out where everyone has gone, they are forced to defend the planet from alien invaders who try to claim it under Intergalactic Planetary Salvage Laws. Fight the Future with Futurama Comics this May!
Relase date: May 26th

FUTURAMA COMICS #18
By Verrone & Rivette
After defending their recently uninhabited world from alien invaders, Fry, Leela, and Bender set out to discover the whereabouts of their missing colleagues as well as billions of citizens from Planet Earth. But "where are they?" soon turns into "when are they?" and "how" and "why" also make a little appearance in Part 2 of "Time Bender Trilogy." Yes, there's time travel - so bring a change of clothes!

I don't really know what's up with this. This confuses me. #17 is suppose to be part two, but #18 is? I don't even know when #18 will be released... Eh, if anyone knows what's up, make a comment.

Futurama Comics Reprint
Coming this September 1st is Futurama Adventures, the second reprint book of Futurama Comics. This trade-paperback will have 5 issues in it rather than the normal 4. #5, #6, #7, #8 and #9. It'll retail for $10.47, and can be pre-ordered right now at Amazon.com

Futurama 2005 Calendar
August 1 2004 marks the day the new Futurama Calendar for 2005 will be released. Futurama calendars sell out extremely quickly online, and are almost impossible to find offline. So get pre-ordering today! They're only $10.39US at Amazon.com

Futurama Volume 4 R1 DVDs
Aching for volume 4 to hit the US? Me too! It's scheduled for August 24th currently. Could be postponed of course. Cross your tentacles.

FOX mentions Futurama

From the newly released NewsCorp quartly earnings report for the period ending March 31st:
Twentieth Century Fox Television (TCFTV) profits continued to expand, primarily reflecting sustained momentum in home entertainment sales, most notably from Angel, Futurama, Family Guy and 24.
In total all of NewsCorp had a net profit increase of 69% to $465.000.000. They sadly don't give numbers regarding the DVD sales but for some reason, the two non-cancelled animated shows got no mention. A quick check on amazon shows that King of the Hill has abysmal sales and Futurama beats The Simpsons on a season by season comparision. Keep in mind that The Simpsons' releases are about a year older. Family Guy again beats them all.

Dub the frame again!

Marc is a lazy bum who does NOTHING on this website at all... So I'm left to take charge of his little game called "Dub the frame" - What is this, you ask? Well, it's simple: we post a framegrab, you caption it, and win absolutely nothing! I'll update it about every other week or so. So go get dubbing! But please, for the sake of our visitors, try to be creative.

Katey Sagal's latest CD

Katey Sagal, the beloved voice of Leela, will be releasing her second pop album June 1st. There aren't any samples of the album online at this moment, but it can be pre-ordered at amazon.com for $16.98. There's an article about Katey, the new album, and her past at NY Daily News. Here's a tidbit from it:

Sagal, a singer for 30 years, releases her second album, "Room," a collection of pop originals and classics, on June 1.

[...] "When I made my first record, in '94, it was harder for people to see me in a different way because I was ensconced in Peg's red wig," says Sagal, 50, who played shoe salesman Al Bundy's wife for more than a decade on the raunchy sitcom.
Thanks to Venus for pointing this out to us.

Simpsons: The Season Finale

The New York times posted a rather elaborate story about the Simpsons' season finale. This being a futurama site, you might ask: "What does this have to do with Futurama?". The following quote will tell you that:
The jokes are rapid-fire and random: Brockman says the rock "will soon be more than just a place for teens to have sex and commit suicide," and the scene cuts to a teenager jumping off, asking, "Why did they cancel `Futurama?' "
