I'd create a disc the would be heavy with episodes written by Bill Odenkirk like the first 4 on this list:

1. How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back
2. Insane in the Mainframe.
3. Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch
4. The Farnsworth Parabox

And then include:

5. Fear of Bot Planet (written by Heather Lombard, Evan Gore)
6. The Problem with Popplers (written by Patric M. Verrone)

People seem to be taking this thread as a "favorite episodes list" thread...
It's not. It's really, really not.

Yes, and although much belated, that day is today!

It turned out to be just five episodes, though. Here's a screen shot of the menu:

The three-minute version of the Futurama theme song plays over it.

The images across the top link to: The Futurama Featurette from the Season 1 DVD, the four small "character drawings" video clips from the same DVD set (one on Fry, one on Leela, one on Bender, and one on "celebrity heads," ) and the Ultimate Evil episode of The Scary Door (from the Birdbot of Ice-catraz deleted scenes).

Obviously, it took far longer than I'd anticipated to sort out all the little details of DVD-authoring and get this project done. Nevertheless, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks for all the input!

Nice one. I notice you don't have any eps from Season 4. Not to worry though as it is the worst Season...

Ok im obviously a lost cause when it comes to the more touching episodes but here it goes.

1.Space Pilot 3000= Mainly just cause its the first episode great way to open people up to a wonderfull show.

2. Time keeps on Slipin= A truly touching episode.

3. Parasites Lost= Could possibly be my favorite episode next to the sting.

4. The Sting= One of the most touching episodes of all for thoughs that follow the show you know what I mean

5. The devil's Hands are idle play things = The last episode the ending gives way to things that might happen this coming year when the show is resurrected.

6. Roswell That ends well= Great concept for an episode. Even older folks can enjoy this one. Makes jokes about alot of 50's populer culture. Plus its the emmy nominated if not emmy winning episode.

Despite the "Best Of" title, the point was more to introduce the show to someone who hadn't seen it. Of course, it does include mostly favorites of mine, since I made it.
I did consider The Sting, Parasites Lost, How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back, Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love, Futurestock, Amazon Women In The Mood, Time Keeps On Slipping, Love's Labor's Lost In Space, 300 Big Boys, The Farnsworth Parabox, and countless others. But I wanted to keep things relatively simple, continuity-wise.

I also wanted to have appearances by both Zapp and Calculon (which I do). And while I'm not anti-shippy, the Fry/Leela stuff just didn't seem to fit in with what I was trying to do. (Although, the Fry/Bender friendship definitely did.)

That looks soooo good. It looks like a real D.V.D. menu. Hope that you do get your friend into the show.
How did you do that? I'm trying to get one of my friends interested in Futurama after she revealed she was a huge Sci-Fi/Sci-Fi parody fan. So I'm very sure she'd like Futurama but I don't know how to make a D.V.D.

Zim- Why is there bacon in the soap?!?!

Gir- I made it myself!

DVDs can be really tricky. It took me quite a while to figure it out. Mostly because I wanted to do everything with freely available programs. In the end, it required four different ones.   tongue Here's what I used:

"DVD Shrink 3.2" (to copy the files onto my hard drive from the discs).

"Any Video Converter" to pull the Ultimate Evil scene out from the other Birdbot Of Ice-Catraz deleted scenes.

"DVD-lab Pro 2" to create the new DVD and menu on my hard drive.

"AVS Disc Creator" to actually burn the disc.

DVD-lab is only free for 30 days, but it has no other restrictions during that time. All the others are Freeware.   cool

And here's a picture of the disc itself:

It was made with Lightscribe.

The way i put it would be:

1. Space Pilot 3000 - Get people knowing how it begins. Everyone can agree by now.
2. When Aliens Attack - Keep The Omicronians having there part in the story, i like them.
3. Lesser of Two Evils - Who doesn't love a Bender episode? This one is double that!
4. The Day the Earth Stood Stupid - Stupid humor is funny humor!
5. The Farnsworth Parabox - My personal favorate, and a multiple universe episode is the greatest episode
6. The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings - Its unfortunate that it ended but it ended well with this episode. Come on, new series!

I think this thread can be closed, now, unless Electerik wants to post any more info/pics.
