What is your favorite musical montage that has been in  a Futurama Episode?

Personally, I think it's a toss up between Bender doing penguin things in "The Birdbot Of Ice-Catraz", or Bender and Fry looking for the winning bottle cap in "Fry And The Slurm Factory". The music picked for both was just perfect, and they both had some very funny moments.

The ones in "The Problem With Popplers", "Bender Should Not Be Allowed On TV" and "30% Iron Chef" were pretty good too.

Guys (not you ~FS~), I think you may be misunderstanding what a musical montage is. For example in "Bender Should Not Be Allowed On TV" the Musical Montage is the 30 or so seconds where "TV Party" is playing in the background, between the point where Bender says "Yes I can" to the network president, and the point where he spits the cigar in the "All My Circuts" human's face.

"Baby Lovechild" montage from "Leela's Homeworld". One of the best montages ever. David X Cohen should've won an Emmy for picking that song.

Although the "Sonata For A Cyclops" montage was pretty great too.

Grrr... no Emmy for that horrible episode! [foams at mouth]
Just to mention a montage not aforementioned, I thought the one in "Bendless Love" was good. Even though the episode was average.

Hey, he'd probably have as much chance of winning one as someone else on the show who actually did something that required some effort, so why not?  cool

[Scruffy] Second. [/Scruffy]

I love that sequence! Definitely made up for some of the weaknesses of that episode.

Also, the sad little montage at the end of JB! With the ironic Parapluies de Cherbourg (sp?) music. I was a gibbering wreck at the end of that.

If it takes forever... cry

EDIT: Who sang "Baby Lovechild?"

That would be Pizzacato 5. You really didn't know that, Sil?  eek They say it in the commentary and I thought you had all those commentaries memorised word-for-word!

I vote Jurrassic Bark. The scene where Seymore is searching for Fry(not the end, where he's waiting for him). It's emotional and funny.

I would say "Conga" from AOI2, because now whenever I hear the opening parts of the song, I start grinning uncontrollably, and imagining human bender dancing around.  smile

But then I also liked "Baby Love Child", because I wasn't paying so very much attention at that point in the episode, and then that song came on and I was like "Wow, I can't believe they used this obscure song, and I've actually heard it before and know who it's by."

Totally agree with you there, that was an excellent choice!

I would like to know what the classical song is that fry is playing his holophoner to on "the devil's hands are idle playthings" where he is at his first major concert and the two spanish "flamenco" dancers are twirling the snail's eyeballs around them, if you know please post! Thanks a lot. btw, perhaps this is slightly off topic, but I love the musical references made in the futurama episodes, the song sung by bender in "where the buggalo roam" was great...the final stanza haha I loved it. lmao.  big grin

It's a Ravel piece called "Bolero." What it has to do with flamenco dancing is anyones guess...

Well.. There's a difference between music playing in a scene, a musical number[IE: The Devil's Hands/Hell is other Robots] and a musical montage[Penguin Things, etc]. But the Penguin things are pretty f-in' great. There are more musical montages in the Simpsons than Futurama. Groening's stuff seems to lend itself to 'silent' comedy somehow.

thanks a lot, yea my guess is that matt just needed something to include as Fry's evidence of "bettering himself" its a good number...I'm more concerned what a snail has to do with the flamenco haha.    tongue

I love the ending scenes from both Leela's Homeworld and Jurassic Bark. Very nice, sad, fitting, and heartwarming. LH not only had a great song, but the animation during the montage was wicked good. Awkward teen Leela? Crawling baby Leela? Hell yes.

"I will wait for you" by Connie Francis in the end scene of "Jurassic Bark".

"Everybody's talkin" by Harry Nilsson when Zap and Kif gets cast out of "Doop" and walks the street in "Brannigan begins again"

"Baby Love Child" by Pizzicato Five where you can see parts of Leela's youth involving her mutant parents in "Leela's Homeworld"

"The hustle" by Van McCoy when Fry dances to this song in protest to get his dead dog back in "Jurassic Bark"

I also like that instrumental guitarr song in "Anthology of Interest 1" when Bender as a big giant robot "dies" after the fight with Zoidberg. It's also played in "Godfellas" when Bender drifts away in space".

Second, great song, funny montage.

Of course the baby love child montage is brilliantly executed.

a "Bolero" is a Spanish dance - kinda links it to flamenco?

I agree, that probably had to be my favorite too. That song coupled with the flashbacks of Leela's Parents taking care of her were so touching. A true "shippy" moment.

I also agree with that.

Another great part was the scene from Fry and the Slurm Factory when they are looking for the bottle caps.

'Do the Hustle' montage from 'Jurassic Bark'. I had never heard that song until I saw that episode.

Iron Man, when giant Bender is flying to Earth in AOI1. The thing is, I had never heard that song before I saw the episode. (I don't listen to music much ... who am I kidding, not at all) Later, my high school band picked it as a song to play at basketball games and such, and I recognised it.

I just watched the Penguin episode last night, and I don't even remember that one, it must have been low key... I do like the one Frank mentioned, it really set the mood well, turn off the volume and watch it without it and you'll see what I mean.

That song at the end of Luck of the Fryrish too, but was that long enough to qualify?
