I've been a long time prowler of this board, but only recently have I become a poster.  Over my prowling and posting time I've managed to catch a number of your posts.  It's obvious you worked on the show (either that or that I'm just a hallucinating moron).  Assuming the former is true, for mine and the rest of the newer Peelers benfit, what exactly did you do.  I spent about 30 mins searching your older posts but then said to hell with it and made this one up instead.  I'm a lazy, lazy man.

Judging by your sketches on TWOF post, I'm assuming you did some storyboading or character developing (either that or I'm just a hallucinating moron).

Getting that out of the way I have a bunch of stupid questions you could answer if you want.  Or anyone else for that matter, it seems as if the Peel is a cozy little family. (I was about to make an "yet to be adopted" joke, before I realized that Leela was an orphan, and even though it would have been unintentional, it would have made the joke even lamer than it was originaly going to be, so no orphan joke for me).

Without further adieu, the questions-

-What episodes did you work on?
-Do any other Futurama'ers post here?
If so who?
If not, why not?
-Favorite epoisode/character?
-I got one of those sketch cards in the Simpson's card set, it's Blinky drawn by Phil Ortiz I believe, how much do you think it's worth? (not that I intend to sell it)
-Can you tell us some juciy gossip?
-God bless the Hyperchicken, kudos to his creator, does he have a name?('he' meaning the chicken)
-What else have you worked on?
-OOOH I got a good one!! How pissed off are you when the credits get squeezed off to the side leaving them illegible?
-Has any other network to your knowelge ran a season with less than 8 episodes, if not, hello Guiness Book of World Records!


Man I have a million more questions, but they will have to wait for another day,  assuming you get around to answering the ones above, which is assuming you did work for the show, but thats all assuming you even read this far, which I'm not sure you will, so I'll stop writing now


 

Spare me your spaceage technobabble, Atillia the Hun.

As far as I know, Family's Guy's first McSeason lasted 7 episodes.  And British networks are famed for short season lengths, 6 usually being the average.

But 6 episode seasons are usually of 1 hour shows (not half-hour shows).

where'd you get that from most Brittish shows are half an hour with only six episodes per series, Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers spring to mind.

^ In the 'good old days' (when British TV actually had programmes worth watching instead of a constant stream of reality crap, gardening, DIY, soaps and 'ironic'gameshows), 30-minute comedies usually ran for 6 episodes a season, and 50-minute dramas for 13. If a comedy was really popular (Only Fools And Horses, One Foot In The Grave) it would go up to 13 a season. But since most shows are written by one or two writers at most, any more than that a year would kill them!

Hey sarge this was brought up in another thread, is there any hope of making Futurama eps Direct to DVD, would that be feasable?
