Just a small blurb in the Insider section, but I thought it was worth mentioning here.

'Though he's voiced everyone from a red candy to Ren and Stimpy, West admits it's his role as 31st-century slacker Fry on Futurama that he loves most.  "Fry's more me than any other character.  He's just a 25-year-old version of me."'

In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I'm glad he likes Fry the most. I'm glad if anyone from the Futurama team likes their Futurama character the most.

Good find. Is there an online link for it at the TV guide website?

Didn't find that interview...but I did find this; "REN & STIMPY, UNCUT - Classic Cartoon Gets a New Life on TNN"

-This article mentions that, "according to industry sources; TNN has ordered new episodes of the adventures of Ren and Stimpy" and "To create the new episodes, TNN is expected to bring back series creator John Kricfalusi"
I would assume this would entail Billy West's participation, too.

Actually it doesn't.  I'm not a "Ren and Stimpy" expert at all (I've only ever seen one full episode), but my understanding is that John Krisfaluski still holds a grudge against West for continuing doing the show (betraying his trust basically) after Nick fired Krisfaluski from the show after the first season or two.  West ended up doing both Ren and Stimpy at that point (at first John K. did one of them).  In this case, I think John K. is doing both of them instead.

At least he's still got the Honey Nut Cheerios Bee and the Red M&M...

And I bet Billy's thanking whatever superior being he worships that he's not involved with THAT train wreck.

Sorry to go a little off-topic here, but Kryten, where did you come up that post signature??  It frightens me!
