Futurama Update from David X. Cohen

David X. Cohen (producer, writer on futurama) posted season 4 information on alt.tv.futurama. If you want to read what he said, either go to alt.tv.futurama, or in this CGEF article.
Big thanks to Jake for pointing out this information.

For the ones who don't know.

I am going to stop updating for the next 2-3 weeks because of my exams. So let's rely on those other webmasters. Wish me luck :P

Prepare for lift off!

With season 4 less than two weeks away, we assembled some info on it. Please understand that this info is not necessarily 100% correct.

As noted before, season 4 is scheduled for a Dec. 9th premiere at its usual sunday time slot (7PM/6PM Central/Mountain). The episode to air as a premiere is going to be "Roswell that Ends Well", previously known as "Top Secret Season Premiere Extravaganza" and written by J. Stewart Burns (The Cryonic Woman, Mars University and others).
Short premiere synopsis: "An accident causes a supernova which sends the crew back in time to 1947, where they land in Roswell, Area 51. Fry and Bender's head have to go in for a rescue mission to free Dr Zoidberg and Bender's body from an army base where Fry's grandfather works."
It really is an episode done in the season 3 production run.

Quite some other Season 3 episodes have yet to air. Partly preliminary titles and summaries are (skip paragraph if you don't like to read spoilers):

  • 3ACV10 - Where the Buggalo Roam: Amy and Kif save the Buggalo herd of the Wong family from rustlers
  • 3ACV12 - The Route of All Evil: Cubert and Hermes' son Dwight use the Planet Express crew to help with their paper route.
  • 3ACV16 - A Leela of her own: Leela starts playing Blernsball as a pro
  • 3ACV17 - A Pharaoh to Remember: Leela, Fry and Bender become enslaved on a planet which resembles the ancient Egypts
  • 3ACV18 - Anthology of Interest II: 3 What ifs: Bender as a human, Fry in a Video game and Leela goes home.
  • 3ACV03 - A Tale of Two Santas: The episode not shown due to violence. It is scheduled to air Dec. 23rd at between 9 and 10PM together with the first XMAS episode. Possibly a guest star: Coolio.
  • 3ACV20 - Godfellas: Bender gets rocketed into space and meets god
  • 3ACV21 - Future Stock: Something weird happens on the annual share holder meeting
  • 3ACV22 - Ironic Chef: Bender tries to beat Elzar at a cooking marathon

    Some spoilers for the real season 4 episodes:
  • The episode currently scheduled for the season final will be about the cult of Star Trek that grew into its own religion around the 23rd Century and became too powerful in the coming centuries and thus got banned . Possibly featuring: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, George Takei, Walter Koenig, and Nichelle Nichols as voice guest stars.
  • A Valentines episode is to guest star Sigourney Weaver as the voice of the PE ship (it gets a personality upgrade which Bender grows quite fond of).

    Together with the 18 episodes out of the 4th production run a total of 72 episodes will have been produced. It is not that clear how many are actually going to show during Season 4 due to lots of football.

    OK, that's it for now, warm up your video tapes and buy chips already ;)

    To hell with it!

    Slowly but surely our sound section is filling. This update concludes season 1 with the edel-version of the 'Hell is other robots' sounds. Thanks to the involved people; Beelzebot knows it's a hell of a lot of work to do the sound transcripts for the fan, but oh hell ...

    Additionally, fitting the hell theme, Lorenz K sent us a neat Fan Art piece featuring Leela with a heap of skulls.

    A Haunting Experience

    Yes, I know this will comes a shock, but I'm actually updating this site again, and this time with some Fan Art from Alexander Gustafsson, he seems to like doing Halloween style pictures, as you can see from the thumbnail, and from the other two on his page.

    I may have some more of my art and wallpapers to add here in due course, once I can free up some time to add them.

    They keep coming in!

    Today I bring you love ... or fan art ... but with love :P
    Juliet gave me 22 Fan Arts and 11 Scans of hers to add to our growing fan submitted sections. When done with looking at the pictures, pay her Bender Fan Site a visit. Sad how her page seems to be the lone guardian of the classic kind of fan pages. More of those are needed to ensure a growing fan base. Anyway, off to the picture now!

    Something for the guys here.
    Lorenz K. sent us two Fan Art pieces. One shows Leela with special emphasis on her more female features, the other shows Leela and Amy.
    Great skill Lorenz. Keep it up and draw something for the girls too (not too much though, please ;) )

    Yep, you might've noticed that my updates are getting less and less frequent. My exams are nearing, so I have to study very hard, I won't leave the web world yet, but in a week or so I will begin studying for my exams. Just bear with me and hope the other webmasters will update more often. I'm off to school now, and enjoy this fan art submission by Ally.

    Nicolas got some complains that his tabs weren't correct, but it was my fault for putting the flawed one up. He also made a mp3 showing how it should sound.

    gotta do what you gotta do

    Although 3 letters are still unkown, I wrote a decoder for Alien Language 2. If people demand an encoder, I will code one, too.
    In the end, I did the encoder anyway, the missing letters are shown as "?". Keep in mind that a single screw up during encoding or decoding makes any character afterwards wrong as AL2 is a differential code.

    Professor do something!

    Okay we have a new area on cgef, it was created during the biology period today. Check out the Guitar Tabs section of CGEF now. It only has one version though, so please submit yours for other versions or improvements. I also got a new futurama game by Deathcharge, it's not that High Tech as the previous games, but it's still lots of fun.

    We're having some slow times in the futurama chatroom, so please stop by and come and chat with your fellow futurama fans. You can also log in with mIRC or other clients on the server irc.rastaworld.com:6667 at #futuramachat...

    Seeing that there is no major site with an Alien Codec anymore, I sat down and wrote a quick and dirty version for Alien Language 1. You can both encode and decode interactively with it.
    If you wonder what this is all about: There are at least two (written) Alien Languages in the show. Every now and then, some weird symbols show up on signs for the fans to decode. Alien Language 1 is a simple letter replacement code, Alien Language 2 is some more complex and not all symbols are known yet.

Btw, check out Duff And Pretzels, The Leela zone, futurama merchandise page, and alien unlimited because they helped out a 'lil bit in the promo section. In other news, I noticed that CGEF has no Questions & Answers section... So I took the liberty to make one... Which is now located here. If you have any questions, be sure to email me them and I will add it.

    Wallpaper Heaven

    My first sort of substantial update, after having my arm twisted by Andie.

    My first batch of wallpapers are here for your perusal, all have made their appearance on the web, on one or more sites. The three come from "Luck Of The Fryrish" showing a sorrowful looking Fry as reality strikes in a big way, "Insane In The Mainframe", with Leela giving Fry what he needs to become human and last but not least from "A Bicyclops Built For Two", comes a sad looking Leela in her wedding dress.

The links section at the moment has 12 links to various Futurama web sites. But if you want to be listed, please add a button or text link to CGEF and email me to add you. As for Web news, I made an article stating what has happened within the last 6 months of the Futurama net community. And if YOU have any Web News, please submit it to me and I will post it.

    It seems to be zoidberg games day :) Actually there is only one new game and it's called Zoidberg extreme skiing. You have to go downhill and evade the fences you pass by jumping over it. Click here to get it. I also updated a small bug that could lead to impossible gameplay in Sperm Rider for slower computers. It now has a 3 second margin till the fireballs start shooting, this should solve the 3 at once bug. PS: If you're having problems with speed, you can always just turn off the sound, that should make things run smoother.
