I would say that the best Futurama guest star ever on the show was probably Lucy Liu. She's hot and is a kick ass kinda girl. She rocked in "I Dated a Robot" and she was cool with her guest cameo in "Love and Rocket." I think the worst guest star, in my opinion, was Beck. That episode was just a bit too weird, that's all. I don't hate Beck or anything. Well anyway, what do you all think? And please don't use Lauren Tom (Amy), Phil LaMarr (Hermes) or Kath Soucie (various voices) as your favorite or least favorite pick because they are all recurring people on the show.

I liked Sigourney Weaver the best, probably because Love and Rocket it the best ep ever IMO.  The worst, well i dont really know.. I like the beck episode and Lucy Lui was cool.  I never really liked Al Gore though, but he does a good job in the Eps.

Best: John Goodman as Robot Santa.

Worst: Beck or Lucy Lui.  I don't like guest stars that come on and the *entire* episode revolves around that guest star as an actual person.  It is ok if they play a different character, but themselves?  That is just ostentacious.

Although it is slightly different in certain circumstances -- example, Al Gore playing himself, but he is the head of the time patrol.  This is a joke on a role, not the actual person himself, which is why it worked.  With Beck, he only did the show if the episode was about him and how great he was.

Whoops forgot about pauly shore he is the worst,   puke

Best: Dan Castellaneta as the Robot Devil.

Worst... hmm... probably Hank Azaria as Harold Zoid.

Definitley Beck. The episode would have been much better had Bender just joined up with some alien band.

Best: Goodman as Santa.

I can't decide between Bea Arthur (Amazon Women - second-best episode ever, IMO) and Dan Castellaneta (gotta love that Beelzebot, best song in the series) for best.

Worst guest star ever is Pauly Shore.  No doubts about it.

I would have to say whoever did roberto had the best guest voice. I'm not even sure if it was a guest but it was awesome. Him or Conan O'brien.
Worst has to be harold zoid.

Roberto was Dave Herman, who's a regular (he's the mayor, the Hyperchicken, and other minor characters).

Best: Gotta agree with Castellaneta as Beelzebot. Smooth. Runners-up: Sigorney Weaver as the PE Ship and then John Goodman as Santa Claws.

Worst: Woy, I'll probably get assaulted for this, but I didn't like Lucy Liu. Didn't like the character design--is that supposed to be freckles? Or severe acne scarring?--and didn't like the character.

Beck? Meh. He fulfills the requirements of his role, as did Pauly Shore--said role being one of annoying, unfunny jackass Pauly Shore--whose worship by Fry is meant to show what a drip Fry is. Mission accomplished! Had Shore played anyone but Shore, and for any other purpose, he would've taken the top spot. Easy.

Hmmmm, I havn't seen the Beck episode or any Season 4 episodes yet but out of what I've seen I would say the best guest star is John Goodman as Robot Santa. He really gave life to the character and did an excellent performance.

The worst would have to be Hank Azaria as Harold Zoid, I hated that character. He was so boring and added nothing to the episode, I hope he's never used again.

in my opinion Beasty Boys where cool in Hell is... and this weird rapper as KwansaBot (I dont know the spelling) in Tale of two Santas. Was that Weird Al Yankovich in the freezertube in Cryonic Woman? I loved Pavarotti in I dated a robot.

and there where several useless celebs as head and stuff (Beck, Lucy Liu (the head not the bot), Pauly Shore,...)

Beastie Boys were great and so was Beck. The whole Beck episode was so "beckish"... I loved it, especially the songs and the chase at the end.

Worst: Beck, simply

Best: Much harder, definitely one of the Vice-Presidential Action Rangers, hard to pick which one.  I quite liked Gary Gygax, but Gore was good too.
