My first post, so I'm hoping that this is in the right section for this.  wink

So I've just become a futurama fan in the last couple of months. And when I get into any show, I like to spread the word about it as much as possible. I'm not really doing this a some kind of campaign to get more episodes, although that would be nice...if very unlikely. I'm just doing it because I think the show is great and more people need to see it. So I wanted to start up a thread here where people could post ways to spread the love of Futurama at their school, workplace ect.....

So I'm on a college campus, and the one thing you always see on a college campus is posters. So, seeing as this is an election year in the US, I whipped (using my very weak Photoshop skills) up a few faux political posters for various futurama characters.

 http://home.cwru.edu/~ixh10/Fry-Poster.gif
 http://home.cwru.edu/~ixh10/Leela-Poster.gif
 http://home.cwru.edu/~ixh10/Amy-Poster.gif
 http://home.cwru.edu/~ixh10/Bender-Poster.gif
 http://home.cwru.edu/~ixh10/Prof-Poster.gif

Yeah, they are pretty basic, but I wanted them to look good printed in B&W on the campus laser printers. So between the posters and running DVD Marathons on Fridays, I'm hoping to get as much of our campus as possible watching Futurama.

Anyone else have some good ideas or promo materials for spreading the word about Futurama?

BTW: Hope I didn't offend anyone by poking fun at some political figures. Just me trying to be funny.

It'll be hilarious if those are mistaken for real and they wind up on the ballot next school election. big grin Yes I know it'd be hard for that to happen, but it's what popped into my head.

When i worked at Toys-r-us i would go over to the animal planet section and get one of the long rubber snakes, wrap it around myself and wear it for the whole shift. It was an orange snake and whenever anyone said anything i would tell them that it's name was Fry and when they would inevitably ask why i had named it that i would tell them about Futurama.

Those are great posters, E the B. I'd check out the show if I'd seen those posters and had not watched or heard of the show previously.

Cool pictures E the B. Have a lovely time at PEEL. You know, I have a shirt that I wear around school that I made and it says "Save the Future, Destroy Fox." I made it a couple nights ago and some people usually come up to me and ask the meaning of it.

Heh, nice poster E the B.  I don't think I'd ever do something that extreme, but cool nonetheless.

I've helped turn some people onto the show.  I quote it amongst friends and so forth, and watched every episode with a friend even (he already liked what he had seen of the show but rarely saw it).  In fact, when we had some of my cousins over I happened to put on some dvds and I think they got hooked.

We have a roster at work for the monthly BBQ and meetings so this year I've got Futurama pics for each month. This is a good 11-month constant reminder of what they're missing out on. I also have bender-placement wherever possible (all around my office) and of course naming the pets after Futurama characters is always beneficial to the cause.  cool

Those are hillarious. And the scary thing is, some of them are better candidates than most of the real ones we currently have.

Those are great posters. I find that the only way I can get someone to like the show or take an interest in it is by showing them an episode. But not just any episode, it has to be something that I know the person would enjoy. For example, if a friend of mine enjoyed crude humor, I'd probably show him "Spanish Fry", or an episode with many dirty jokes (although I did enjoy the episode).
But, if I had a friend who was a sucker for romance or unrequited love or something, I'd show them "Time Keeps on Slippin'" or an episode with alot of shippiness.

Great posters!

I have a Bender Model on my PC at work so comments are either:

'Hey Bender! Furutama's really funny'

or

'Who's that robot meant to be?'

I then launch in to pitch Futurama mode.    smile

Nice posters.  Maybe Cartoon Network should pay you in Futurama DVDs for advertising for them.

Case Western student, eh?  My friend's brother goes to school there.

Way WAY awesome! I'd love to do something like that at my school. (Ah, the possibilities...) But, I think I'll just start a club. I'm gonna print a few of those out, though. TOTALLY COOL, once again!

E the B, theyre really good, i dont think they look bad, they just look like a simple candidate poster. I especially like the watch Futurama bit very good. How about under Bender having 'The first ever crook in the whitehouse...'  smile
