I was giving it a chance one time but my best friends little brother is really the one who threw me off of liking the show.. he almost threw me off of liking Futurama, because one day at my friends house we walked into his room and he was jerking off to Bobs Burgers.. same thing with Futurama Netflix was paused on Leela that time.. It really fucked us up..
I don't think we needed that much details on the relationship between that guy and Bob's Burgers/Futurama... cry

As unpleasant as that must have been, you can hardly blame the show for your friend's brother's actions. And it's still a silly reason to warrant someone professing genuine disdain for... well, anything. Seriously, if "some weirdos jerk off over it" was a legitimate reason to hate something, there'd be nothing left to enjoy.

Yeah you are right, I had seen a few episodes of Bobs Burgers before it wasn't too bad I think i'm going to start watching it again, I really have nothing left to watch since Futurama ended.. So i look forward to Simpsorama hopefully that doesn't make the shows worse..

I believe the waistline on Simpsons and Futurama characters is pretty much the same, given Groening's drawing style. tongue

That's... a really strange reason.

It's like if someone said "I heard that people jerk it to women, and that's why I'm not attracted to women anymore."

...I've never seen Bob's Burgers, for the record. I'll just float around here pretending to understand what's going on.

It's nothing major, but Maurice LaMarche recently commented on Futurama's return, here.

If you just want what he said:

It's good to see him care about a fifteen-year-old show that has had long hiatuses. But honestly though, if the show would return with an even lower budget, I don't know if it would be any good at all. Seeing as Simpsorama* is being made with The Simpsons' resources there's a good chance it will be good/well made

* Wasn't it also the name of a paperback comic book issue?

September 28th, 2014, for both Simpsons and Family Guy (Bob's Burgers the week after).

LeelasOpposite: No, there's gonna be a Simpsorama. Beamer was just joking about Wikipedia mistakes and such.

Sorry, spoiler-tagged it now.

Looking at that picture, that room does seem to have a lot of futuristic-technology in it, but it still looks more like a Springfield environment than a New New York environment. Perhaps they end up in Professor Frink's lab? Or maybe it is in New New York and the Simpson-y animation style is putting me off (I know the animation of The Simpsons and Futurama is near-identical but I feel you can still tell the difference).

Nothing that's said about the plot would suggest that.

That seems likely.

It sounds interesting, but at the same time silly (as I would except based on future-episodes of Simpsons). At least self-referential jokes should be fun and I'm actually looking forward to it more than I was previously.

I think pretty much EVERYONE has that complaint. I guess the show has only ever had one extended episode in it's entire 26 year run so it's unlikely that they'd make an exception now.

I'm hoping the episode gets right to the main plot so that we can spend as much time with the Futurama cast and the episode has enough time to come to a satisfying conclusion.

I could also see it being Professor Frink's lab, but something tells me that the whole episode will use The Simpsons' color palette. Hopefully they're letting the PE-gang keep their skin color.

The Instagram clip of the opening seemed to use Futuramas normal colors for the PE building shot, so yeah, it's probably Frink's lab.

Picture looks nice, definitely looks alot more natural than the Family Guy/Simpsons clip (though having the same animation style probably helps alot). Hopefully the actual animation looks good, and isn't too stiff like most HD Simpsons episodes look like.

Also, did you really have to spoil the Alien Alphabet code Al? C'mon man.

It is. The colour scheme is virtually identical.

It's definitely Frink's lab, check out the same corner from Simpsorama in the below screen:

Well, that's pretty much complete confirmation that both shows now exist within the same universe despite how they were both previously established to exist as fictional TV shows within each other's universes. It's what I expected, but it's sort of annoying. I hope they'll at least make a joke alluding to it.

I wish the promo image was one of the Futurama cast other than Bender so we could see if they're going to recolour them all with yellow skin or not.

Spoilers, because apparently there are people who don't want the first 30 seconds of the episode to be spoiled:

Anyway, I really hope this episode ends up being every bit as outstanding as it has the potential to be. Everything we've seen so far has been quite good, so fingers crossed.

As for it only being 22 minutes long, I'm holding out hope that it'll be hugely successful and they'll put another cross-over episode into development. Imagine if we ended up getting an annual Futurama crossover ala "Treehouse of Horror". A man can dream.

Well..could have been worse. Had he chosen a paused scene with Lois Griffin, I am sure nerd rage would have broken lose here.

That isn't 100% confirmed, yet. We don't know how canon this episode actually is. It really wouldn't make sense if it were canon. As long as they confirm it is non-canon, I don't mind.

My guess is it will be completely canon as far as The Simpsons is concerned, but they won't elaborate if it's canon or not for Futurama, meaning that we can all pretend that it's non-canon despite David X. Cohen's comments heavily suggesting that he considers it to be canon.

Speaking of which, has Cohen made any recent-ish comment on the crossover? I'd really be interested to know if he had any involvement or any opinions on how it turned out/looks so far.

I really hope not. It makes no sense. How can everyone be yellow then suddenly not? Sure you can say "they invented technology to change skin tone" or something like that, but we've seen 1999 and even 1947 and 1775 in Futurama's universe and everyone was still white (not listing black because there are still black people in The Simpsons).

Not to mention that both shows are fictional within each other's universes, as you said, cyber_turnip. mad

I mean, there's always been poor continuity with it, to be honest.

Whilst there are The Simpsons toys in the Coney Island flashback and Fry's family home's basement and on the garbage asteroid and Fry refers to his medical condition as "Simpsons jaundice" and Bender asks Matt Groening when there's going to be another Simpsons movie, we also see Blinky in the pilot and Homer and Marge left some graffiti at the entrance to Robot Hell.

Similarly, Futurama is directly referred to as a TV show in The Simpsons on several occasions, but Bender stills makes a cameo when Bart and Homer drive through a tunnel in the future.


As for the skin-tone thing, I still think it's quite likely that the Futurama cast are going to be yellow. I really hope that's not what happens because it will just look wrong, but the precedent is that Caucasian people tend to be yellow on The Simpsons and if they're not yellow, then it raises questions that they probably don't want to have to deal with.

They're inconsistent with it when it comes to tiny cameos, though, so maybe they could make an exception to the rule.



If I recall correctly, Fry has made two cameos in The Simpsons to date and, just as with Hank Hill up there, one of them retained his normal colours, whilst one of them coloured him yellow.

At least if they are yellow, it'll further suggest that it's non-canon as far as Futurama is concerned.
