I found this link to a rotten tomatoes article on the front page of CGEF.  It's got a very good interview in it with director Rich Moore concerning the new futurama movies:

For those too lazy to go to the Fox Store, here the features listed:
 
Quote
- Commentary on all four episodes by David X Cohen, Matt Groening and others TBD

- In-Character commentary on selected episodes

- Global warning movie promo with Bender

- Animatics/Storyboards/Pencil Tests

- Making of Futurama

- Character design/Evolution of new characters

- Deleted storyboards/scenes

- Hipno Toad - never before seen episode with intro by David and Matt

- Characters Reading Fan Mail

- Auido outtakes/bloopers

- Futurama Teacher featurette

- Comicon panel

- *Disc contents are subject to change

The oddest one is that it lists it that DXC, Groening, and others will do commentary on "all four episodes", not "the movie".

Also, it's pretty clool that the Hypno Toad episode is real.

I got a bit of information from Cohen on the features of the first DVD and guest stars of the first two DVDs which I put up on the CGEF page for Four new Futurama DVDs.

The "Futurama Teacher featurette" listed above is likely the lecture on math references in Futurama by Dr. Sarah Greenwald and the "Everyone loves Hypnotoad" is planned to be 22 minutes long.

On the features: But for the live math lecture, the commentary and the hypnotoad episode which David X. called "likely", he said more was to be included "as space permits".

As the discs aren't ready yet and they are somewhat busy to get them done for November, things from the FOX page might not all make it to the first DVD movie.

Brandonegc: When it says the "next Fantastic Four DVD", it's likely meaning a trailer for the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer DVD.

Will no one else do so?

Since
(1) Comic was given out for free;
(2) it is a promotional comic;
(3) it was meant to thank fanbase for bringing show back, and since internet buzz was key,
(4) Crude version already up on YouTube.
(5) Officer published a portion.

I'll eventually publish the comic.

Me rationalize good.

So you would like to take a look,
at the entire ComicCon comic book.

I've come up with a plan,
for the true Futurama fan,
(and if you complain about the scan,
frankly I don't give a d---).

I thought about posting just a link,
but let's make everyone try to think.

The links are posted down below,
Each bold number represents a show,
and each show has a question you must know.

Each question yields a single letter;
sub it for the number to make link better.

Which nine episodes are the key?
You won't get the answer from the likes of me,
(But you will get quite ahead,
if you locate another 'key' thread).

I had fun with this little game,
even if it is kind of lame
that I wasted time on this (the shame!),
and some of you will seize the crown
in less time than I wrote this down.

And if this is some kind of sin,
please forgive this noob, just nibblin'

 87[/b]x96w]http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d6m2bbb_1287x96w 


Episode 1: Fry holds a can for a long time.  What is the first letter of the brand name of that can?  Shift that letter forward 12 letters (thus 'a' would become 'm').

Epsiode 2: Bender sings a folk song at the end of the episode. Take the second letter from the first word of the first lyric.

Episode 3:  Fry mistakes Leela for what? First letter of first word on itemized list.

Episode 4:  A musical instrument is played near the end of the episode.  What is it made out of?  Take the first letter of that answer, shift forward one letter ('a' would become 'b').

Episode 5:  The bottom floor in the elevator has two words.  Take the first letter of first word, and advance 6 characters ('e' becomes 'k', 'z' becomes 'f')

Episode 6: The second letter from the first name of this little-known president who fell down.

Episode 7: Farnsworth orders three soylent items, one of which begins with 'c'.  What is the last letter of that word?

Episode 8: Two questions are asked.  The answer to one is "Me!"  What is the answer to the other (Two words)?  Last letter of first word.

Episode 9:  Tough one.  There is a DVD Easter Egg that contains a table read  for this episode.  There is a  scene, never animated,  that contains the lyrics to a well-known rock song.  What is the name of that song (two words)?  First letter of second word.

I figured out what I was doing! I deleted the # 6 for some reason, so the address was wrong.

I was actually really surprised that the links to the comic weren't published earlier.  Thanks, everyone, who played the puzzle with grace and humor. And thanks, Rachetman and Javier, for holding out as long as you did.  I was going to post the answer after a week, but well...

Those of you who had trouble and are curious, the key episodes were

SP3000
Series has Landed
Love's Labor Lost
Hell is Other Robots
Parasites Lost
Day the Earth Stood Stupid
Roswell that Ends Well
The Why of Fry
Devil's Hands

The difference between this thread and the speculation thread?  The speculation thread won't have 4 pages+ of fluff hacked out of it in a single evening.

Well, it's certainly shorter now than it was a few hous ago.  I'm sorry the thread exploded last week, but you did a really good job with trimming it.  Thanks, Nixorbo.

I forgot to mention this last week, because it was brought up at a general VA panel (rather than the Futurama one), but for the record, Maurice LaMarche does have an account on IMDB, that really is him posting random tidbits of information about the movies there, and he kindly asks that random fans please stop harassing his niece (not sure what that's about) and claiming the account is fake.

Anyway, the point is, the source can be trusted.  I wish someone who'd filmed the panel would actually upload the clip to Youtube so I'd have visual proof that LaMarche said this.

I´am still extremely curious and looking forward, however am I the only one who considers the plot a little strange? That whole thing with "nudist invasion" and tatooed sphere sounds like crude combination of "Roswell that ends well" with "Spanish Fry" and Bender plot feels much more like comic thing than something that actually should be done in the show...

Please remember that most blurbs about coming plots don't do said plots justice.
Maybe I trust the writers more than you, but I'm not concerned.

I guess this is news... we'll it's something very interesting that I just learned today.

On the Discovery Channel, there is a show called "Dirty Jobs". Apparently the host, Mike Rowe, has helped with writing some of the gags in some shows, and recently was one of the writers in the upcoming four new movies of Futurama. Even though he's written for shows like Futurama and Family Guy before, I just thought it was neat that he does help with the writing process.

Man, everything is all interconnected! His being host of "The Most" on the History Channel means that's 3 of my favorite shows he's been involved in.

I searched IMDb, tv.com, Wikipedia, and Google for this. All said he didn't write for Futurama at all. Bend Her is credited to "Mike Rowe", although, looking at how no site says that Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe wrote, I doubt it's the same Mike Rowe. Also, on Youtube there is a clip from the commentary for Bend Her, and the Futurama writer Mike Rowe does not sound like Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe.

No, wait, that was my own misunderstanding. I saw a video that just appeared on YouTube under the username "mikeroweshow" and thought that it said that it was the same Mike Rowe who hosts many of the shows on Discovery Channel. Blame it on me for the misunderstanding.

Though, it's still interesting that a gag writer has the same name as a host.
