German Futurama daily

Well first - as mentioned before - the German channel Pro7 will continue airing season 3 Saturdays at 18:00 starting with "Amazon Women in the Mood" or "Amazonen machen Snu-Snu".

Secondly, they will also be airing Futurama episodes from season 1 again. So if you are a) german b) sort of new to the show and c) to cheap to buy the Futurama DVDs then this is your chance to catch up. Reruns will be Monday through Friday at 18:30 starting Monday the first of July.

Incoming Hodge

Just yesterday we told about the Simpsons & Futurama Crossover Comic and today Hodge sends us a little scan of Bender and Homer drinking beer along with two others. This brings the Hodge Scan area up to 25 scans. Thanks Hodge.

Simpsons & Futurama

Wonder what it would be like if the Simpsons and the Planet Express crew clashed? This summer Bongo Comics will publish a 2 issue, 32 pages each, mini series with just that. DiamondComics has two preview pictures on their site. More maybe soon.

The picture shown above is not from the comic but a fanart by 'Otis P Jivefunk'.

Fan Stuff is in!

Ok, as first responses:
Lennie Asserholt (static from PEEL) reminded me that we still got his two fan fics unpublished. Oopsy. Andie is taking some time off for exams, so it was rotting in his email inbox. Now 'No More Secrets Part 1' and Part 2 are up for you to enjoy. Don't forget to tell the authors what you thought of their works by rating them.

Also, Russell sent me 2 pics of his 'Leela lost in Time' series and then one "send fox mail" propaganda. You can find them among the "various authors" in our Fan Art Gallery.

Keep things flowing.

Sky|One at it again *updated*

Looks like the British channel Sky|One is at it again:
Instead of a new season 4 episode they'll show a rerun of the season 3 episode The Day the Earth Stood Stupid on June 2nd. Thanks to 'PCC Fred' for telling me that.
Related link: PEEL thread on Futurma/Sky.

Additon by 'The Skoot' on PEEL:
However, Sky are showing Futurama loads next week for Half-Term, including a documentary! Here's what will shown:
11:00 - Put Your Head On My Shoulders
15:45 - Futurama: Welcome To The World Of Tomorrow
11:00 - The Problem With Popplers
15:00 - Xmas Story
15:30 - Brannigan Begin Again
15:00 - Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love
15:30 - Lesser Of Two Evils
15:00 - A Bicyclops Built For Two
15:30 - How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back
PS: The 4 feet Bender Maquette at Tower Records (extras -> action figures) now says "low stock" which according to their FAQ means 3 or less left.

Futurama Redux

As mentioned before, 2nd of June (Sunday in a week) will be the start of the summer rerun season which commence with the Season 4 premier episode 'Roswell that Ends Well' at 7PM/6C on FOX. Roswell got quite a good feedback by our visitors. We get to see Fry's grandpa due to a timetravel back to the 1947.

It looks like FOX is going to jump a bit with the episodes as the next Futurama episode - the Sunday after - will be 'Love & Rocket' which guest stars Alien mommy Sigourney Weaver as the voice of the newly upgraded Planet Express Ship. This is actually one of the only 3 episodes out of Futurama's 4th production run which we got to see yet.

(sorry for screwing up on this one at first :p I'll get my whip out. As a remedy, have fun looking at this: pic1 pic2 pic3 pic4)

The Paper Saga Continues

Futurama Comic #9 is available today. 32 full color pages By Eric Rogers, Tom King and Bill Morrison. Bongo Solicitation reads:
It seems like "Great Nephew Day" creeps up on you all of a sudden, just like "Red-Headed Stepchild Day." So Fry goes in search of the perfect gift for Professor Farnsworth. Little does he know that his gift will lead to a scientifically unexplainable phenomenon that will make them both swap bodies. Farnworth's personality inhabits Fry's body and vice versa. The whole thing turns into a really "Freaky Fry Day."

If you haven't pre-ordered, then pick up a copy at FandomShop Online for $2.50 or Forbidden Planet (click 'comics' then '23rd May') for

I want to use this news entry to thank Adam Clacher, who got CGEF and our petition into the popular British magazine "DVD Review". Also thanks to 'wiggles' for letting me know that.
Although FOX won't comment on the petition itself, it sure doesn't go unnoticed and it helps Matt Groening and David X Cohen to bolster up any negotiations with FOX and/or other channels. Keep promoting our cause to conventional media like Adam did!

Futurama Internationale

After praising the British channel Sky|One a few days ago, it seems like they felt that it's time to get back on us: As 'PCC Fred' tells on PEEL, they decided not to show Futurama next Sunday. According to digiguide they will show the episode one week later though. So hopes are high that they actually show "all" season 4 episodes.

That said: The German channel Pro7 is going to continue showing season 3 episodes on Sat, Jun 1st at 18:00 after they stopped it due to weak ratings. While that timeslot sure is far from good in summer, germans at least get the chance to see the superb episode "Amazonen machen Snu Snu" ("Amazon Women in the Mood") on that date.

And related to this: Our International TV Listing might be out of date. It's hard for us to check that as we do not have contributers in every single country (yet ). If you see listings that need updating or know of a new country that shows Futurama, use the comments for this news-entry.

Futurama Repeats

From June 2nd on, FOX will start airing repeats on Sundays at 7PM/6C. They start off with 'Roswell that Ends Well' which got a quite good CGEF user rating of 89%. Especially for the east-coasters, this is a good chance to finally see the episode as (quote Scott O) "people like to watch running and jumping beasts on a football field instead" there.

Let's hope this is a summer-lasting thing.

Homeworld Sounds

The Sounds for 'Leela's Homeworld' featuring the best lines of the episode that revealed us Leela's secret are now up. We are kinda behind on the sound side, but hey, that way we have something to do while there are no new Futurama episodes

Oh, and as it's still one of the most asked questions: The song playing at the end of the show is "Baby Love Child" from the album "Made in USA" by "Pizzicato 5". There are some samples on the linked site (amazon).

FOX's Fall Lineup

As denotes now, the previously reported line up for fall with Futurama at the instable 7pm timeslot is now fact.
Incidently, 'King of the Hill' which will now have the much desired 8:30pm 'after the Simpsons' slot had a much promoted, one hour, special season final at 7:30PM last Sunday and managed to have an over-night rating of only 4.1/7 compared to Futurama's 4.5/8.

Futurama Action Figures

The Dark Horse Comics outlet Things From Another World stocked the hard to find
'Fry Action Figure' by Moore Action Collectibles. Not only that, but they also straight away reduced the price by 25% resulting in $9.71. This probably makes it one of the most interesting merchandise figures around.

Have a look at our toy-imp Jon's in depth review of the Fry figure which ended in a 9 out of 10 verdict.

If you'd rather want a Leela, have a look at eToys and search for 'Futurama' there. As one would guess, she doesn't carry a reduced price tag though ($12.99).

A peek at the FOXy Fall line up

This Thursday FOX is said to officially reveal its fall/winter season line up.
It looks like FOX is transforming its Sunday to a comedy day featuring the new comedy show "Oliver Beene" at 7:30 pm and "The Simpsons" at 8pm.
"King of the Hill" gets the much desired 'after Simpsons' slot and is followed by "Malcolm in the Middle" at 9 and then either "The Grubbs" or "The Pitt" at 9:30pm.
Where does that leave Futurama? Well, at 7pm. Again. Which means we can all rejoice and await the jolly recurring preemptions and possibly a late season start again. Yay.
Why King of the Hill gets such a great treatment? I don't know, I really don't know.

Over the pond

British Sky Broadcasting Group about its performance lately:

"LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 10, 2002
[...] The quality and popularity of Sky's channels was demonstrated in the quarter, as share of viewing in all UK homes increased by 18% to 6.7%, up from 5.7% on the prior year. Sky One is achieving record audiences for popular shows like Star Trek Enterprise, Futurama, Buffy the Vampire Slayer , [...] helping it to its highest ever share of viewing in the quarter"

Looks like at least one channel knows what jewel it has/had in Futurama.

Warning about AskFox

>FUTURAMA will be back next Season will a full season of ALL-NEW episodes!!!
>Thanks for writing
Alot of the people who wrote emails to fox got this reply, this means nothing, they will have another season, but there are still no episodes in production, if they don't do that, after this "season" it'll all be over, and since they are old unaired episodes that won't take long. Email them back, saying this and ask them 'are there still episodes in production' or so

Argh, He's Back Again.

It's been a while since I added anything by me here, so here goes.

The first new pictures is one for all Amyholics to appreciate, and features her in some lingerie and a very natty bikini, both are 3D Shaded and loosely based on the Paper Dolls Book, Amy cardboard cutout figure.

The second new art features Leela and Fry from "A Pharoah To Remember", it's a first for me as I did the entire picture in Paint Shop Pro, albeit not 3D Shaded (got lazy), I worked my socks off to get it accurate.

Enjoy. Be back with more art in the near future.

(10 and counting).

Pop up warning?

See a pop up with a warning when entering CGEF?
Well, then you have been the victim of some scumware. To clarify: you did not get the infection from CGEF, but probably by programs like Kazaa/Morpheus. If so, get Ad-aware and remove the parasites these programs install in addition to their normal function.
The reason why we added this check/warning is that the parasites take away our income from ads, which keep this site alive.

Foxy Answers 3

In case you wrote FOX again inquiring, you probably got something like this answer:

We will decide that in May of 2003 - just like any other show for the 03/04 Season.
Talk to you in a year.
Thanks for writing.

Boy, that guy answering askfox@ must be pissed... In a year, hu? I think not.
Lets see ... It takes about 6 to 9 months to produce a Futurama episode. That is, if there is a well trained team, which there is no more. So, make it 10. Now, 10 months from May 2003 that's ... March 2004. Not quite the season start of 2003 (September 2003). They need to hire them by November/December this year the latest, not in a year.
Go write the FOX!

I have more and more people telling me they got their emails to FOX answered with the following:

"FUTURAMA will be back next Season will(sic!) a full season of ALL-NEW episodes!!!

Thanks for writing

Well, obviously, that's propaganda. Mail them back and ask if by "ALL-NEW" they mean the 1 to 2 years old episodes they never showed due to the bad time slot and pre-empting. We want them to ask the production team to do *REAL NEW* episodes so they can keep their work up.
Also *full season* is a lie, too. There are only 16 episodes left.
