The Futurama on Comedy Central Cuts Guide


The original 72 episodes

Created by Matt Garvey
(garvey at snpp dot com)
for use on CGEF

18 Jun 2008
(txt version)

From January 2003 to December 2007, Cartoon Network aired Futurama as part of
its Adult Swim block, almost entirely uncut. Since January 2008, having won
the contract, Comedy Central has been showing it instead. It's actually
mostly intact, but I took it upon myself to see what might have changed.

A brief introduction to the guide:

This list is presented in production order, not airing order, although for a
while Comedy Central's broadcasts were in airing order themselves. I figure
this is the order most viewers are familiar with (if any), and it's easier to
search through.

The episodes as shown on Comedy Central are generally not cut (in the body)
but are slightly time-compressed to fit their time slot (about 21:30). I've
adapted the format of the Simpsons syndication cuts guide (at snpp.com) to
take up a little less space, with changes and other remarks on the right-hand
side. Each part of an episode is listed with its running time on CC out of
the full running time, with the difference displayed in parentheses.

The major problem of Comedy Central's format is the credits. Comedy Central,
like most cable channels, hates credits, and seems to do everything possible
not to show them in their original form. For some reason, Futurama has gotten
a worse treatment than their usual (text credits* on the side while promos
run); almost any time it is followed by another episode of Futurama, or South
Park, or Li'l Bush, a "scrap of paper" view at the bottom left of the screen
overlaps the start of the next show, with tiny text credits flashing by in
it. This has the unfortunate side effect of obscuring most of the opening
taglines when another episode of Futurama is up next (as well as anything
else important down there, such as the lines of text during South Park's "4th
Grade" opening titles).

(*This is my name for credits that are displayed in various forms, using a
basic text format, without being tied to a particular font or timing or
pagination. The distinction is computer text vs. shrinking a video.)

For the first few weeks, Comedy Central experimented with different levels of
transparency to the black background of the credits, making stuff behind it
somewhat legible, but now they seem to have settled on opaque. Also rocky at
the start was the timing of credits, as often they would come in late
(skipping the cast, for example) or wrap up early (in particular with later
South Park episodes, which have a commercial right after the opening).
Furthermore, the contents of the credits were not always correct (usually the
wrong production code was the only error I could spot). I have not made a
detailed study of every line of the credits, though.

Usually only when the show is followed by something else, such as standup,
the credits are in typical side-text design, and even then, there are often
errors in production code (despite guest stars and such being correct). Most
of the time, the very last note of the credits music can be heard at the end
of this; if I ever catch such a broadcast of an episode with special credits,
I'll see if the end of *that* music can be heard instead. Additionally, it
seems that season "5" episodes, when using the side credits, have a 20th
Century Fox logo after 30th (but use 30th only on the scrap-of-paper
credits). Interestingly, on CN, it was generally the other way around: the
first four aired seasons had 30th and 20th, but the last had 30th only,
possibly because CN didn't get them until November 2003.

Overall, though, don't expect to see or hear any extra content from the
credits. It sucks, I know. I've noted episodes where that's cut, but not
lengthy descriptions. (Consult or buy the DVDs!) I've taken the liberty of
marking each credits section as 0 out of 36 seconds. Also of particular note:
the logos for Curiosity Company, which vary in both video and audio from
episode to episode, are all the same still image on Comedy Central.

Every episode on Comedy Central is rated TV-14, though individual episode
ratings varied originally on Fox (many some form of TV-PG). I might also note
that the closed captioning image at the top right slightly gets in the way of
the "tasty human burgers" sign in the main title when there's no cold
opening, but it disappears in time to be read partway through.

Although I refer to it a few times, I'm not really including records of TBS,
which occasionally broadcast the show from 2003 onward. I seem to recall that
text credits were used there, too, but that's about all I know, and they're
not regular enough to bother with.

I've used the DVDs to do the comparisons and get the original timings, as I
don't have most of the Fox airings on tape. With a few exceptions, these
reflect how the show originally looked anyway. In addition, the chapter
breaks help illustrate where act breaks are, with (production) seasons 1, 2,
and 4 being perfectly standard in this respect, while season 3 is all over
the place (and in one case--3ACV05--doesn't mark a certain act break at all).

Almost all episodes are compressed uniformly; since most are the same basic
length, compression of about one second per minute is used. (Two episodes are
shorter and use different methods.) My timings are accurate within a second
or so; you might notice that sometimes, for example, one 7-minute act is
shortened by 6 seconds and then a 6-minute act is shortened by 7, but I'm not
tidying up all the numbers just for that. A few episodes trim some long,
generally silent and still shots, ruining the dramatic pause, and I've noted
them. (I wonder if there's some degree of automation to this process that
makes such fraction-of-a-second trims. I've noticed the same sort of thing on
syndicated episodes of Family Guy.)

You might notice that short pieces (the main title and most cold opens) are
listed with more precision; this is to illustrate that all are still
compressed, even when the difference is less than a second. I will admit that
there's a certain mathematical or scientific fallacy going on when I keep
that level of precision in the episode totals, but the idea is just to give
you an idea of the change.

A few notes about the difference between Cartoon Network and Comedy Central
airings: CC does have a few advantages. For the most part it preserves the
original break placement; Adult Swim's two-act format meant that many
episodes were split in the second act, and the other breaks were eliminated,
without even a short gap between them (leading to, for example, a ruined
meta-joke in 1ACV05). Also, CC has no problem with the "Zombie Jesus" lines.

If you have any questions, corrections, additional information, etc., please
let me know.

                              The man before Fry originally asked the tube to
                              take him to "JFK Jr. Airport"; this is how the
                              line appeared on the first two network airings
                              (3/28/99 and 6/15/99). However, on 7/16/99,
                              JFK Jr. died--in a plane crash yet--and for the
                              episode's third airing on Fox (8/8/99), the
                              destination was changed to "Radio City Mutant
                              Hall." (According to Haynes Lee, it was not
                              changed on Global in Canada.) The replacement
                              line has been used everywhere: DVD, CN, and CC.
                              (Those with the DVD can find the original line
                              in the animatic, though.) No editorializing
                              from me, though, just all the details I know.

                              "Holy Zombie Jesus" is also fine in both audio
                              and closed captions. CN muted "Jesus" and took
                              it out of the captions; I didn't see what TBS
                              did. See 2ACV12.

                              that this point--the oil crashing down on
                              Leela--is the correct act break as seen on Fox.

                              Comedy Central moved the I/II act break. It
                              should be after Nibbler and Leela rocket off,
                              but now it's 2:16 earlier, after "all glory to
                              the Hypnotoad." (The commercial transitions are
                              faded, then, as well as the end of act II for
                              some reason, and the real act break's location
                              becomes a little abrupt.) If Fox ever broadcast
                              the episode this way, I'd like to know. Timings
                              reflect the act breaks CC uses, for comparison.
