I was checking on my favorite general animation news site http://animated-movies.squareworld.com/News.html  and they had this.  I tried to access the whole L.A. Times article, but hit a registration page:

Where the Futurama Is Now

"I feel about Futurama the way Paul McCartney must feel about Wings," creator Matt Groening told the L.A. Times' Charles Solomon with a characteristic laugh. "It's tough to compare anything to The Simpsons, but I'm incredibly proud of Futurama. The show is still alive, even though it's no longer supported by its original network, Fox. It's on Cartoon Network now. We're still working on Futurama comic books and toys, and we've been talking about Futurama movies. Just a few days ago, fans of the program submitted a petition to save it that had 130,000 signatures. Even by TV standards that's pretty amazing." Looking back over the series, Matt Groening cites a few favorite moments: "We had Al Gore on the show twice, that was a thrill, and Stephen Hawking. But I think our finest moment was reuniting the entire cast of the original Star Trek: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and all the other actors, who played themselves. We basically made a new Star Trek episode. Every episode on the DVD has what I guarantee are the liveliest audio commentaries you'll ever hear. We have the actors Billy West, John Di Maggio and Maurice LaMarche, along with the relatively subdued writers and animators. They not only comment on the show, they act out their own show as Dr. Zoidberg, the Professor, Bender the Robot and the rest."

Go to the link above and check through all of the Wed. March 26 news for additional Futurama goodness as well.

Hm? Maurice in an audio commentary? Something to look forward to from the 3rd Season DVDs, then!

Surely the DVDs themselves are more than enough to look forward to?!?

Just in case anyone is interested, here's the text of the newspaper article:

Well, yes, the DVDs are in themselves excellent, but I was just saying it'd be nice to hear from the other voice actors as well as the Amazing Messers West and DiMaggio. Though none of them come close to the supreme comedy force which is David X. Cohen. True story.

I know, I was just messing. Cohen is excellent, he's the highlight of the commentaries, and I'd love to hear Katey Sagal on one. And also possibly a hidden feature of her, something along these lines. (The title of that page promises so much but delivers so little.)

Maurice LaMarche providing commentaries? Dip! I was hoping for either him or Tress MacNeille to add their thoughts. I can't wait for the Season 3 sets now. At least I am hoping they will contain commentaries by Maurice.

She's not even 50! And since when has age had anything to do with beauty?
