First, let me say that I know there hasn't been a thread on this topic for several years.

Second, I know that probably no one is interested in this information.

However, for anyone who needs to update their episode guide/capsule/whatever:

2ACV09 - A Bicyclops Built for Two:  "Hollywood Capers", Warner Brothers, 1935.


4ACV03 - Love and Rocket:  "In a Cartoon Study" (a.k.a. Making 'Em Move), Van Beuren Studio, 1931.

I think what Dr_Dave refers to is where the cartoon inserts during the intro to the show are from.

Do I get a prize if I'm right?  big grin

You're correct.  You're absolutely correct.  You win a polite round of applause from the assembled hordes.

For the rest of you newbies, get out your Futurama DVDs and watch the opening of each episode.  See the old-time animated cartoon that appears on the giant screen, right before the Planet Express ship crashes into it?

The posted information identifies the cartoon from which that clip was taken.  Identification consists of the cartoon title, studio that produced it, and the release date.

More info for the newbies...

WEFNZ has a brief explanation about this too.

And here you'll find the complete list of identified opening cartoons, composed by, you guessed it, Dr_Dave.

Nice find Dave. That leaves 10 clips to go, right?

In a way do the cartoon openings have some kind of connection with the episode?

Well, possibly...I mean, they don't seem to have any connection, but I suppose you could connect it together if you were a super genius and could prove something mathmatically........ But I Don't really think so, just my opinion. Don't kill me over it.

Unfortunately, the WNFNZ site has been inactive for several years.  However, it does have the only list of Futurama cartoon openings on the web (as far as I know).

Here are my current statistics on the openings:

1ACV - 13 episodes, 13 openings identified
2ACV - 19 episodes, 11 openings identified
3ACV - 22 episodes, 7 openings identified
4ACV - 18 episodes, 12 openings identified

So, we've got a ways to go yet.

It's during the opening theme at the beginning of an episode. When the PlanEx ship crashes through the big TV. On it are old cartoons from the 40s and 50s.

There hasn't been a post on this topic for years, but I've been quite interested in the opening cartoons (and if anyone still doesn't know, they're the briefly shown clips that show on the screen in the opening sequence). I actually started a new topic on this. Also, here's a new page showing almost every opening cartoon, with snapshots:

http://theinfosphere.org/List_of_opening_cartoons

Statistics:
Season 1: 13/13 episodes
Season 2: 19/19 episodes
Season 3: 18/22 episodes
Season 4: 18/18 episodes
Season 5: 10/10 of the episodes with opening cartoons; there are 16 episodes in this season in total, but 6 episodes don't have any cartoons
Season 6: 1/2 of the episodes with opening cartoons; the rest don't have any cartoons
