Yeah, those have been around for a few days.  The last one is from "Stench and Stenchability", by the way.

Omg, the Futurama Facebook page just said we're going to see Finn and Jake from Adventure Time on Futurama's new episode.

I'm sitting here saying to myself, WHAT THE FUCK!?

I don't know how I feel about this. Adventure Time looks like a really cool show (I have Season 1 on pre-order), but this just looks so out of place...

As much as I know, Adventure Time takes place in the not-so-distant future, after some kind of nuclear bomb went off, which mutated everything. (Forming Jake the Dog and His unicorn wife?).

This more-than-likely takes place in the "Cloud Castle". And that would kind of make sense, since it's a genetic engineering facility that would deal with mutations like Jake. Still, the cameos do seem out of place for a show like Futurama though. I hope maybe they just have a few lines to speak, and that's it.

I've never seen Adventure Time before, but I'm assuming this will just be a tiny cameo. However, the fact that they're showing it in a promo worries me slightly...

I'm actually not worried at all about this even though it does look a bit out of place.
I think you're probably right, UrL, that it'll be just a small cameo, and it's not entirely illogical for Jake and Finn to be there since I'm fairly certain that Adventure Time takes place roughly a thousand years into the future. Also, Jake is voiced by John DiMaggio, so that's probably another major reason for the cameo, too.

The Facebook comments are amusing. Quite a few say something along the lines of "OMG JOHN DIMAGGIO WIL BE TALKING TO HIMSELF!" as if that doesn't already happen quite often on Futurama. tongue

I don't know what to think, I'm neutral about Adventure Time (even if the plot seems forced,imo but some of the characters are enjoyable as Jake,for example) and even actually I'm worried about how people is reacting about this (the typical "OMFG JOHN DIMAGGIO WILL BE TALKTIN TO HIMSELF" thing annoys me, get over it people, personally I've seen more weirder connections about dubs), I think is....unexpected and that is a good thing!

And as said Solid Snake makes sense at least ,also as long it keeps as a cameo, I think it's ok.

Also, poor Finn even in Groening's style he doesnt have nose  laff

I'm assuming the joke will be that Finn and Jake are both mutated, hence how they can get away with different visual styles (and the whole talking stretchy dog thing) while still remaining in the Futuramaverse. Makes sense given Adventure Time's whole 'mutant future' mythology.

Groening mentioned that Jake the Dog would make a cameo in a recent interview (that two-part one that was posted here recently).

I mentioned it to my gf (a huge Adventure Time fan) and she's been super excited for it since. I think it's a funny idea and I wouldn't make anything of it beyond what they've done with other cartoon character cameos in the past. Just a funny joke.

Oh. My. Björk! I LOVE Adventure Time.

My love for it has surpassed my love for Futurama with this rather lackluster season. I am sorry to say it, but it's true. Please spare the hateful comments.

AT is very much like Miyazaki's fantastical universes and creatures. Its quirkiness and creativity reminds me of that charm that Futurama once had (not even as long ago as two seasons back or so). I welcome Finn and Jake's appearance, and I hope that the episode uses them well, even if their cameo is brief.

I think I'd have to partly agree with sparkybarky, about this latest season being a bit lackluster. I don't find it quite as lackluster as alot of people are making it out to be. I mean like 70% of people on facebook keep saying this is their worst season. I really wouldn't say it's their worst. I think Season 5 (the movies) were their worst. I still liked the movies, nonetheless. But it was far from Futurama greatness,

Here's my views of each season:

4>3>6B>1>7A>6A>2>7B>5

Nothing has ever gotten close to beating Season 4. The same could almost be said about Season 3 too, if it didn't have those 4 less-than-great episodes.

Still, Season 6B and 7A were pretty gamn good. 7A wasn't exactly able to beat 1, because Season 1 was pretty great, laying out the characters traits throughout the episodes. 6A was good too, while it had a really rocky start. I mean sure, it had 4 really-great episodes, but that doesn't necessarily make up for the other lackluster ones that devoured half of it.

And yeah, I found Season 2 to be pretty boring. I liked about 60% episodes in it, like "I Second that Emotion", "A Head in the Polls" and "Anthology of Interest".

7B has been kinda boring, too. So far there's only about 3 above-average episodes of this season. The rest are pretty much average, or below average. I can see the witty humor that makes me love Futurama fading away. Hopefully it comes back with these next 5 episodes.

And Season 5........I don't think I laughed once with this whole season. I mean I did have a few chuckles, but that's it. The main issue with this season, was that they all didn't really have an interesting story (with the exception of Bender's Big Score). To me it was a bit unfunny, and no interesting storylines were present whatsoever.

Double DiMaggio! I'm sure it'll just be a fleeting cameo, but it should be fun. I'm hoping we get a knowing joke out of it, like "Billy West? That's a stupid made-up name!" from The Silence of the Clamps.

To me it was a bit unfunny, and no interesting storylines were present whatsoever.


Season Four is my favorite too. They really went out on a high. When I think of how many of my favorite episodes stem from that season, it's crazy. Leela's Homeworld, Love and Rocket, The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings, Time Keeps On Slipping, Jurassic Bark, Kif Gets Knocked Up A Knotch (Zapp is firing on all barrels in that one. "So the toilet seat is like, the uncle or something?"  laff) . . .  really great season.

For me Season Five feels very different. I was initially underwhelmed by it, but I've grown much fonder of it as time goes on. Especially of Bender's Game, for some reason - which is strange, because that one was my least favorite originally. But the more I watch it, the more I like it. The Mom / Ignar / Farnsworth plot works well, as do Leela's anger issues and the various Lord of the Rings take-offs. And John DiMaggio puts in such a great turn as Bender. He always does, but in this one he delivers every line so gleefully. (His "COOOOORRRRNNNNWOOOOOOOODDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!"  on the operating table makes me laugh every time, and he has some really delicious throwaway lines. "Have a flagon of ale and a shank of dwarf!" big grin ) There are puns that have me sniggering every time ("Gynacaladriel, Queen of the Water-Nymphos!") and Frydo's shopping channel hallucination (where his Gollum reflection tries to sell him a deerhorn handled dagger to stab his friends with) is a classic.

I think the reason 5 feels so different to 4 though is that Season Four was very character-driven, and the movies largely drop that angle after Bender's Big Score. My favorite parts of TBwaBB, for example, are Amy and Kif's wedding / his grisly death / her totally inappropriate mourning outfit and boning of Zapp Brannigan, and the reunion of Fry and Bender at the climax of the movie - especially his choke-hugging of Fry and Leela at the end, when he tells them real love is jealous and suspicious. Ditto ITWGY. That one feels kind of stretched. Some of the best scenes come when the gang are all together (eg Amy's crazy golf abilities, the men in the go-go cage, Zapp's pursuit) but the main emotional thrust of the movie feels rushed. Fry and Leela's feelings are alluded to briefly early on, dropped for most of the movie, and then picked up abruptly for the grand finale, which feels a bit uneven. That said, ITWGY does boast some of my favorite scenes. Any scene with a Waterfall tickles me, and the tale of the Dark Ones and the Encyclopods never gets old. (Nor does "How does it end? I need to know!")

I just got done chatting with somebody at Netflix, using netflix chat.

The dude's name was Jeremy. He was way too optimistic on the show's future, he said:

They'll be back. They've been cancelled before! A few times I think haha.

And then he went on about how Netflix employees are left in the dark regarding matters like Netflix's decisions. Furthermore, he said "Don't expect any news on it until after the season's over".

Then we talked about the showrunners a bit. Then I asked if lots of fans have been messaging them about this. He replied: "Alot more than you think!", which is cool.

Then he said "Yeah, the show pretty much has a cult following. I'm sure SOMEONE will pick them up.".  And then told me to spread the word. It ended there.

Could this be the closest current answer we'll get regarding the show's future? It sure seems like it has a good chance of going to Netflix. I mean with optimism like that, it really makes you think.

I recorded that whole thing with hypercam, or at least a screen recording device like it, if not better. Should I upload it to youtube or something?  eek

They are thinking possibilities, but other than who would take Futurama, it also depends on what MG and DXC want.

I hadn't heard of that before either; I'm very glad they decided not to follow through with the idea of his mom being fossilized instead. It would've likely been too bizarre and lost much of the poignancy of the plot with Seymour.

Oh. My. Björk! I LOVE Adventure Time.

My love for it has surpassed my love for Futurama with this rather lackluster season. I am sorry to say it, but it's true. Please spare the hateful comments.

It makes me sad to admit it, but I feel the same way (not about Adventure Time specifically, just that my love for other shows has surpassed my love for Futurama). I've enjoyed 7B more than 7A or season 5, but it's still been fairly ho-hum in my opinion. I'm very grateful for the good to excellent new episodes that we've gotten, but I still really wish it could've ended with a season as spectacular as season 4.  frown

Who ever said it wouldn't end as spectacular as Season 4? They say the Season Finale for this season is the "best one they done yet". And we haven't seeen it yet! So I think we should wait until the season is over until we say whether it sucked or not. I think so far, it's been a little bit lacklusting. But with the 3 most recent eps, it makes me kinda change my mind about that.

^I wasn't intending to say that "Meanwhile" wouldn't be spectacular or that the other remaining episodes won't be awesome. I meant that season 7 in general has not been as great as season 4, and since there are only four episodes left, even if those four are amazing, which they very well might be, I think that's a fair thing to say at this point. Also, I definitely don't think the season has "sucked"; I just believe it to be lacking when compared to all of the others except season 5. I've enjoyed many episodes this season; however, in my mind, there's been a higher amount of "meh" episodes in comparison to stellar ones than in previous seasons, especially season 4, which I adore basically every episode of.
I know many people disagree with me and have loved season 7, but that's just my opinion.
