In yet another moment clearly meant to remind you that you are no longer young, The Simpsons is about to air it's 24th "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween special. Any current or lapsed fan of the show is familiar with a few of the traditions that go into the annual episode, including the altered opening and horror-inspired Couch Gag. The theme continues this year, and this time the producers of the show brought on Guillermo del Toroto create the opening. Just under three minutes long, the animation features guest appearances by a few comic characters, as well as a nod to Futurama, and some inspiration from Mad magazine and former Hellboy artist and frequent del Toro collaborator Guy Davis.
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. Cohen and Bongo Comics co-founder Bill Morrison, who illustrated the piece.
Voice actor John DiMaggio will meet himself on Wednesday night's new episode of Futurama when his character Bender comes across Finn the Boy and Jake the Dog (the latter of whom DiMaggio also voices) from Adventure Time, the show's creators teased via Facebook.
Since the folks who make Futurama often don't know if it's coming back for another season, sometimes it feels like the show has had half a dozen different series finales. That said, my favorite is still "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings," which features Fry switching hands with the musically gifted Robot Devil so he can play the holophonor for Leela. It's a memorable episode, and has compelled one fan, Harrison Krix of Volpin Props, to make his own holophonor, and it's pretty impressive.
After 14 years, 7 seasons, multiple specials a video game and more, fans are understandably bummed that following its 140th episode in September, Matt Groening's Futurama will conclude... as an animated series, that is. Thanks to Bongo Comics, the adventures of Leela, Fry, Bender and the rest are planned to continue well into the foreseeable futur(ama).
21 years after Adam West first appeared on The Simpsons, the star of the 1966 Batman TV series is returning to the Matt Groening universe in August in a new episode of Futurama. Former Robin Burt Ward (who appeared with West in a 2002 Simpsons episode) will also guest star in the episode, "Leela and the Genestalk."
Speaking of Matt Groening, the cartoonist's beloved Futurama returned with new episodes this week on Comedy Central. To promote the new season, the network recreated the sci-fi series' famous introduction -- an animated, aerial tour
Fans love Futurama for its comedic take on the 31st century, but let's face it, it wouldn't be super comfortable having to look Leela in the eye every day in real life. Artist Ray Lin proves it with clay busts depicting a number
