In the show´s run we´ve got two Xmas episodes (I know there is also Xmas comic but that´s not the same), two Valentine´s episodes and two AOI.The last one is subject of fantasy of many of us. So what ould you perosnally want to see in future holiday and AOI episodes? I personaly see both first Xmas and Valentine´s episodes better than their sequels and probably the same quality for AOI I. and AOI II. In third Valentine episode the most logic would be now Leela as a main protagonist.

I would want Zoidberg and Robot Santa to join forces and take over the world, but then it's just a dream of Zoidbergs...  That'd be pretty sweet..

how about AOI following the three minor characters Zoidberg, Amy, and Hermes for once??  i sort of expected that in the 2nd one and was disappointed.  maybe zoidberg's should be one where people like zoidberg for once, or he is famous somehow... I have to admit I love Zoidberg.

Anthology Of Interest 3.
BENDER: What if I became president?
FRY: What if Leela & I got married?
LEELA: What if my parents never abandoned me?

All questions seem within the characters' personalities, and could supply for very good stories.  smile

Xmas special - spoof on the old "Home Alone" where everyone go away for holidays only to accidently forget Fry at the undefended PE HQ. With a few hours before xmas start, Fry tried to set a few traps to Robot Santa (which all fail ofcourse).

I really like Beamers idea for the third AOI, but I also agree with thatsmebaby with having Amy, Heremes and Zoidberg ask a question. I would love to see another Valentines episode and a Halloween episode.

If the show came back I'd prefer they retired "X-Mas", at least unless they had a really good idea for a new one.  Thing is, "A Tale of Two Santas" did pretty much everything that could be accomplished with Robo-Santa.  There'd really be no way to top it, and even if they tried, it would just seem like they were repeating themselves (even if the plot itself was completely different).  I guess they could do one without Robo-Santa, but after establishing that as such a "staple" of the "X-Mas" of the future it would seem weird not to have it.

Other then that, can't really think of any holidays I'd desperately want them to do.  I guess they could try Thanksgiving, depending on the circumstances.  Halloween could be really good, though I'm not sure how redundant that would seem considering the AOI episodes (though granted those never tried to be "Halloween" themed at all).

Dunno what they should do for an AOI other then that I would really want another one.  I'd say though that they should probably stick to just Fry, Bender and Leela, at least for AOI3.  It just works, and I can't really think of what they'd do for the side characters anyway.  Though a Zapp story could be amusing.

i don't count it as such since it didn't take place on halloween or referenced the holiday in any way.

And what do you mean by 'failed attempt'? I liked that ep.

Second.

I always wanted an episode that was specifically Halloween-themed and though "The Honking" (love the title parody of The Haunting) comes close, ultimately it just wasn't.

Kicked your ass.

Well, I figured that since The Honking aired close to Halloween (5 days after) that it was intended to be the Halloween ep.

I'd want to see third Anthology of Interest:

Zoidberg - What if I got to eat a manwich? Would be just a story about what Zoidberg does during his day.

Professor - Something about his feud with Professor Wernstrum (sp?)

Bender - What if he didn't have a 5% Nickle Impurity. I dunno...maybe he acts like a nice robot, or is friends with Qubert, or something un-Bender-ific.

Whatever. Im not creative. <shrug> Stop looking at me.

X-Mas episode: not sure about the entire plot of the episode, but possibly could involve Santa attacking the Nimbus.
V-Day episode: flashback-heavy, focusing on how the Turangas got together.
AOI 3: I like Beamer's ideas.  Maybe have Fry ask something more mundane.

A Halloween episode wouldn't have to be like the AOI episodes at all.  Just because The Simpsons does that for Halloween doesn't mean that Futurama would.

Actually, the title is a parody of The Howling.

A Halloween episode would be cool!  As for an XMas episode, I would have liked to see Roberto or the Robot Mafia team up with Santa Claus! 

Here's some AOI movies I would've liked to see:

Fry: What if I was frozen for _500_ years and not 1000 years?

Leela:  What if I were born with two eyes?

Bender:  What if I were a rock star? 

Amy:  What if I were more serious and Leela was the party girl?

Ah, I forgot about The Howling. That does make more sense. The Haunting came to mind first because of the (albeit brief) "haunted house" theme. While on the subject I did notice the parallels to An American Werewolf in London. It brings to mind the Simpsons parodies of A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Shining, though those were much more obvious and specific to those films while "The Honking" was an amalgam of several movies.

Getting back on-topic with this rambling post, if Futurama were to do a Halloween show, should it be a full episode or broken down into parts? Personally, I'd rather it be a full episode. The "Anthology of Interest" concept already takes advantage of the separate stories formula, and the three-part Halloween show is a long-standing Simpsons tradition with the annual "Treehouse of Horror".

I fear those questions were allready (altough just partialy) done by "The Cyber house rules" and "Bendin´ in the wind".

Yeah, the episode itself is a parody of several different horror movies, but the title is taken from The Howling.

Full episode.  I wouldn't want to see anything like the "Anthology of Interest" episodes or the "Treehouse of Horror" episodes.  It should be more like the Christmas or St. Valentine's Day episodes.

It'd be cool to see like a viewer fan mail thing, like the did with Family GUy...

Seeing as Halloween is my favorite (that's right, not "favourite" ) holiday, I'd love to see how trick-or-treating has evolved in the 30th century. Also TP'ing people's houses. Or spaceships? And egging. Can't forget egging. (Not that I've done anything like this...*cue halo*) As for viewer fanmail, I guess it could work. But it'd be better if Bender was the one who answered them. (I'm suddenly reminded of Strong Bad emails...CURSE HOMESTAR RUNNER.COM!) >_<
