Hold him at gunpoint & tell him to give you an autograph. But instead of a piece of paper, make him sign a 5 year contract for Futurama.

With a network that will actually show it, preferably.

I think the reason Fox is doing this is the mentality that cartoon sitcoms are 'so 1990s' & washed up. NBC is kicking Foxs' ass & they have no toons. So, monkey see monkey do.

Probably better than my theory which involved a brain slug slowly starving on the remaining brain cells in the Fox exec's heads.  Either that or an evil hypno-toad.

That makes sense, in a stupid network executive type way.

Did King of the Hill get renewed? I haven't been following.

I have no idea what's up with King Of The Hill. Yeah, how can they keep that show & kill Futurama? Makes no sense. It's a good show, but Futurama is funnier & looks a hell of a lot better.

Why would you want Matts' autograph? For letting Futurama die off?

Yeah. Lately I've caught a few of the syndicated reruns...the show is actually not that bad. But it seems to have the same crappy treatment as Futurama(well it doesn't get pre-empted half as much, but it has still faded into obscurity thanks to the lousy early timeslot). I'm surprised fox would keep one and not the other.

Then how can we explain NBC's "Fear Factor"?  I could've sworn that would be Fox show.

You get Matts' autograph when you bump into him on the street (good luck) or at a book signing or maybe at the Comicon in San Diego. Or maybe someone's selling something on Ebay signed by Matt. Comon', use your imagination.  roll eyes

Rest assured that the Fox execs are kicking themselves for not getting that one.

send him $1 000 000 but to make the postman to give the check to matt groening he needs a signature which has to go back to you so you can see the check arrived..

Yeah, ebay has stuff. Here's the first link I came across
 http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1071863571

I'd look at the other search results but I don't really care.

OK, sitcom toons were the rage in the 90's but then again, with the exception of the PJ's, (which moved to the WB) Fox's toons have outlasted all other toons in other networks, including NBC. NBC's greatest pitch was The Critic. I remember Stressed Eric, Baby Blues, God, the Devil and Bob, and I can see that they all wanted to join Fox's bandwagon. (I remember an ad for Stressed quoting "badder than Bart, bigger than Beavis".) If there is one good thing that Fox does, it's knowing which are good animated sitcoms and buying them from their creators. But the bad thing is that they're not getting equal amounts of publicity.

Animation is where Fox should be getting at. It's not just a fad that will fade soon. Remember, The Flintstones did it 40 years ago with success.

If I were Matt, I'd be flying up the stairs with a printed copy of the petition. I'd fling the door to Rupert Murdoch's office open so hard that the door would fall off its hinges. Then I'd slam the petition down on his desk and scream "MIND TELLING ME WHEN YOU CANCEL ONE OF MY SHOWS??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!????"

g'uh, it's not "cancelled" and I'm sure Matt knows exactly what Fox is doing.
