What was your favorite 3D or special effect that was in an episode of Futurama? Mine is on "Three Hundred Big Boys" where Fry got too hopped up on coffee, and everything started to go into slow motion.

I liked M5438, he was a cool effect. I also like the way they had to tone him down because he looked way better then the original Star-Trek beings.

Too many to mention in one go, but I'd like to call attention to one that I feel is somewhat underrated by many: the hubble telescope exploding in When Aliens Attack - complete with swirling tyre.  wink

"God" was done well, i liked their personification of a nebula as God.

99.99% of explosions, they're great to watch and well done.

The tank in Roswell That Ends Well, the time, effort and detail in that thing must have been amazing, and it paid off!

I think the entire atomic explosion in Roswell is super-cool. Especially the rear-view mirror shot. That has always been my favourite effects scene.

Gotta say that Futurama had some great, if somewhat uncomfortably varied, water animation as well. "The Deep South" was a great example, but "Obsoletely Fabulous" totally nailed the effect - check out the background ripples of the water throughout the episode. Well sexy. And that's not forgetting the awesome CG sequence of the tidal waves at the beginning of act 2.  cool

Yeah, the explosions are really cool to watch, noticeably in my mind the one in the beginning of "The day the Earth stood stupid".

The Mobile Oppression Palace and the Decapodian Warships. The best explosion was when the MOP exploded.

Probably my favourite sequence that involved a lot of CG was the whole escape thing from The Near Death Star in ACoMO.  smile

I gotta go with that whole coffee sequence in 300 big boys. Just beautiful!

Its out of the 300 Hundred Big Boys scene where everything slows down or the Roswell that Ends Wells atomic explosion.
Zapp blowing up the DOOPs new headquarters was pretty cool though, so its out of those three.

I liked the wisp of smoke coming from the machine gun barrel after Bender has used it in WNFHGB. It was just a small effect, but it looked really  good and I like attention to detail.

And the explosions of course...

The 300 Big Boys end scene was a great effect for me, the visuals and sound were both excellent.

I like every single effect on Roswell THat ends Well But apart from that episode there are 3others I like.

On Love And Rocket When Bender Becomes Matrixy

                     &

On The Route Of All Evil the Net for catching girrafes.

And On A Clone Of my Own all inside the Near Death Stars pretty cool

CG-sequence: either the fight between the Earth fleet and the Omicronian mothership in "When Aliens Attack" or the attack on Roswell Airbase in "Roswell That Ends Well".

Standalone scene: the atomic blast in RTEW

But these are just examples, there are many more.

The 300 Big Boys scene or the trippy 2001 inspired scene in The Sting.

I don't think it was in 3-D, but I thought it looked cool when Bender got high off of electricity in "Hell is Other Robots"  smile

The effect that I enjoyed most was that of the Quasar in 'Love and Rocket'. It was beautiful in a scary sort of way.

The effect on Melllvar in WNFHGB absolutely blew my mind!

I really like the chase scene on the near death star, and the time tunnel in Roswell that ends well

i think the most under-appreciated effect is the PE ship. it is fantastic watching it doing fly-by's and when it was swimming in the deep south.

Glad someone mentioned this! It is definitely one of the most visually impressive moments in Futurama. I also like the beginning of the episode with the PE ship set against the background of the Horsehead nebula...breathtaking! I also liked the animation on the candy hearts in zero G. They just looked great and very realistic.

I guess you can see why I loved this episode so much  smile

I love the effect of DOOP Headquaters exploding in BBA. The way it's torn apart by multiple explosions is a nice touch and makes it a more impressive shot.

I'd forgotten about that. The MOP is one of the coolest inventions in the entire series. Cheap too, apparently.  wink

 And I'd also have to say that Vamsi's reasons for loving Love And Rocket are similar to those of my own. What choices that man has!  smile

The entire Love and Rocket and Roswell That Ends Well have great effects. The hearts, quasar, omicronian ships, the atomic blast, the time tunnel, the rocket being launched at the Roswell base, and the supernova explosion were done amazingly well.

The beautiful explosion when the cars collide about halfway through Mother's Day.

The Roswell Base sequences, especially the fantastic tank.

And also the crackling electricity around the engines when they're shot out by the guards in A Clone of My Own - hand drawn and fantastic.

The popcorn nebula was definately a very cool effect.  As was the popcorn in I Dated A Robot.  Those are two of my favorites...  Also, as mentioned, the atomic blast in Roswell.  The show has such amazing graphical effects.

I'd say it was the flight scene in Space Pilot 3000 when it hits New Year's Eve and the ship is flying around the laser fire and fireworks etc.
