Futurama lede

After 14 years of amazing animation, mathematical humor, annual cancellation threats, and Hedonismbot, Futurama's series finale aired last night, bringing to a close one of the best animated series of its time, and possibly ever. And to further celebrate the show's run you can check out this eBay auction of original Futurama art, revealed at this year's Comic-Con and signed by nearly the entire cast of the show, as well as series creator Matt Groening, Executive Producer David X.

New ‘The Simpsons’ Sneakers From Converse Will Look Great With Your Greyhound Fur Tuxedo

Simpsons kicks header

In terms of branding, Matt Groening has always been the anti-Bill Watterson. Whereas the Calvin and Hobbes cartoonist was opposed to nearly any use of his creations on merchandise, Groening was never shy about his desire to see characters from The Simpsons on t-shirts, posters, sneakers, and nearly anything else you could think of. The strategy paid off: Simpsons merchandise, seemingly omnipresent at one point, served as great advertising and played a role in making the show the longest-running American television sitcom of all time. And while that movement has died down a bit over the years, it hasn't completely gone away. Case in point: these new Converse sneakers, featuring Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, available now on Converse's website. You can check out pictures of each below. Feel free to get a pair of Bart Simpson kicks, grab a Butterfinger, and be transported to another world. And by another world, I mean 1993.

The original panel for "Futurama" was billed as an event where we would "join executive producers Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, and stars Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, and Maurice LaMarche for high-stakes thrills as a top-ranking FOX executive decides live, on stage, whether 'Futurama' will make yet another triumphant return or whether it is gone forever!"

It was an obvious setup for a Fox exec to reunite the cast and creator and cue wild applause from fans for the revival of the cult favorite cartoon. Unfo
