What was that thing Morbo did that made his co-anchor scream her head off??


He took his shirt off during the Freedom Day parade.

Ah yeah...I loved today's episode. (I think I saw it, but just the last 10 minutes) Bender goes on TV as himself and he was stealing and drinking. then they Prof. and Hermes started Fathers Against Rude Television ... oh man, I was laughing my ass off for hours.

the other best part was when Calculon said "That's great! Spice a reacton shot of me and air it!" after Benders rant about spending more time hitting our children ROFL! :lol:  :lol:

Calculon is AWESOME. I have so much love for Maurice LaMarche, especially since he spends the entire commentaries claiming that "Morbo sounds nothing like Lrr or the Horrible Gelatinous Blob," and "Calculon sounds nothing like the announcer from Tales of Interest."

My alltime favorite Calculon line is from Bend-Her:

"N-O-O-O-O-O-O!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Some other favorites...

"You're so bad, I think you just gave me cancer!"
"I need to repay you for this UNHOLY! ACTING! TALENT!"

Nearly four years after it was cancelled, the popularity of Futurama on DVD could breathe life back into the animated television series. On the subject of a rumoured resurrection, creator Matt Groening, best known for his other animated hit, The Simpsons, says, intriguingly: "You never know."


Quote
"Three months ago, I would have said we were going to start tomorrow," says writer David X. Cohen, who collaborated with Groening on Futurama. "And one month ago I would also have said we were going to start tomorrow. So ..." He pauses. "My current estimate is that we're starting tomorrow."


Quote
A return to television or, better, a direct-to-DVD feature would be a natural transition for the show, Cohen says. "The more seriously we took the epic nature of the setting, the better the episodes turned out. For that reason, we always thought that would bode well for a movie because then we could take that to its extreme and do something we couldn't do in 22 minutes."

I have so much respect for Billy West, voicing all those major characters so well. Man.

"Welcome to my humble chamber. Or as I call it "The Lovenasium." Sham-PAGIN?"

"Brannigan's Law is like Brannigan's love - hard and fast!"

"Private Lee Lemon may well be the finest recruit I've seen in all my years of service. That young man fills me with hope and some other emotions that are... weird... and deeply confusing to me."

"So, trapped on a ship with me. What say you and I knock some very sensual boots?"

"Ah, she's built like a steakhouse, but she handles like a bistro."

"You win again, gravity!"

It's hilarious at the mini skirt he has on. I love that episode where he had  feelings for Lee Lemon.

Billy West! Voice of Ren and Stimpy too. :D

And Bugs Bunny! :O:O:O

Zapp's manskirt. In the commentaries for several Zapp=centric episodes, David X. Cohen talks about how Matt Groening would always make a note on the storyboards to "raise the skirt line." And then Billy would cut in (as Zapp) with "My MANskirt!" So great.

Futurama could follow in the footsteps of Family Guy and re-enter production more than two years after it was axed, Variety reports today.

The animated series, brainchild of Simpsons creator Matt Groening, ended after four produced seasons amid lacklustre ratings and broken scheduling on broadcast network FOX.

Since then the show has found a new audience on the Cartoon Network, where it ranks as one of the channel's highest-rated series.

Production studio 20th Century Fox TV is in "early discussions" to create a "limited number" of new episodes, the publication said, although it is still unknown where - or how - they may air.

BACK TO THE FUTURAMA: Variety is reporting that 20th Century Fox TV is in early discussions to go back into production with Futurama, the Emmy-winning animated series which ran on Fox from March 1999 to August 2003, giving it a Family Guy-style resuscitation. Based on the misadventures of Fry, Leela and Bender, Futurama is set in the year 3000, at which time Lindsay Lohan will have stopped making "news." But until then....

Billy West himself posted on his forums a few days ago (December 29) with this:
