And fryfan, how much support are you getting for this, anyway? If it's just the lads and lasses of Peel (stalwalt crusaders that they may well be) this isn't going to make musch of an impact...

Have you got the support of any other sites?

I've mentioned this to a few wensites and up to now, TFH and TLZ have both posted this campaign on their sites.  I'm hoping CGEF could do the same, since CGEF is up to speed on the latest in Futurama news.  And I'm not sucking up to those out there who think I am.  CGEF is good at providing news concerning Futurama, like informing us of the museum in Seattle that has a Futurama exhibit.  Where else would us fans have been informed of that?

i could just picture it, "Anchovies For Fry" typed in blue, and for the picture, GFF's label and have FOX's mailing address.  Marc, andie or jon could inform CGEF visitors of this idea and ask that they buy anchovies, (spoiled is an option) let them copy the picture so they could put one on each of the cans of anchovies and write, "Anchovies For Fry" or whatever to inform FOX that this is a protest for the one year anniversary of Futurama's cancellation.

CGEF remember when you informed the public of the five anniversary of Futurama's first airing earlier this year? March 29, 2004.

What have you planned to inform the public on the anniversary of the cancelation?  Just a post and have people place comments of how mad they are?  Why not inform the public of Anchovies For Fry, instead? 

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.  I'M BEGGING YOU, PLEASE. IF YOU IGNORE THIS PLEA THAN THAT IS NO DIFFERENT WHEN FUTURAMA FANS FIRST SENT LETTERS TO FOX BEGGING TO RENEW THE SHOW, BUT FOX MERELY IGNORED IT AND LET THE CHIPS FALL.  WE, SUPPORTERS OF ANCHOVIES FOR FRY ASK CGEF TO INFORM THE FUTURAMA FANS TO SEND LETTERS TO FOX AGAIN AND THIS TIME DON'T HOLD THE ANCHOVIES.

Here's the song parody that fuels me to never give up on keeping Futurama alive.  May it fuel you to join Anchovies For Fry even more.

American Fry (Parody of Don McLean’s  "American Pie" )

by fryfanSpyOrama

A long long time ago
I can still remember how that show used to make me smile
And I knew if I gave it a chance
That I’d be happy and do a little dance
And maybe it’d be on for a long while.

But August 10, made me shiver
Saying goodbye to Fry, Leela and Bender
But we still had a blast
Bender traded away his metal ass.

I can’t remember if I cried
When I learned about the end of this space ride
But something touched me deep in side
The day the show died.

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Did you know this pizza delivery boy
Is now a comic and an action toy
Maybe it is just as so
Can you believe in FOX’s role
May god damn their mortal souls
And I hope he takes it real slow.

Well, I knew the show would be big hit
But FOX still treated like it was shit
Of course we know we were screwed
What’s a bunch of die-hard fans to do?

All we can say is that FOX, you suck
Caring only about the mighty buck
And we all knew we were out of luck
The day the show day.

We started singing’

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Now for five years we’ve been having fun
Watching the PE crew getting the job done
Making a whole bunch of deliveries.
Well I also like the Professor and Scruffy
Hermes and that sexy Asian, Amy
Dr. Zoidberg seemed real funny to me

Oh and while FOX was looking down
The PE crew just made them frown
Their decision was adjourned
With no chance of a return
And Matt and David fought for the show
But FOX merely gave them a big “no”
And we all just said FOX, you blow
The day the show died

We were singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Now we fans sent in a bunch of letters
Saying keeping the show was for the better
FOX merely threw them in the trash.
72 episodes and dying fast
The show on FOX just couldn’t last
The PE crew was in for a big crash.

Now we remember Fry and Leela’s first kiss
It was a moment that we all didn’t miss
Now Leela can never be sad
Because she also found her mom and dad
And her pet Nibbler is not what he seems
Fry in the future was part of his scheme
Leela, “the other” we can only dream
The day the show died.

We started singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Oh once a week we’d love coming to this place
This generation’s Lost In Space
But some say it’s more like Star Trek
Star Wars stuff was also used
To keep us fans still amused
But FOX won’t now bring it back.
Oh and Fry started blowing that holophone
I can sense Leela’s loving tone
It was the scene we’ve waited for
Leela and Fry together and maybe score
But the fact it was last episode that night
Just made us think it wasn’t right
But FOX just laughed with delight
The day the show died

We were singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

I knew August 10 was the end
And it felt I was losing a friend
But they’ll live on in my memories
I learned that the show wasn’t done
Cartoon Network now has it in rerun.
But it doesn’t just feel same to me

And in the end the fans just cheered
But to FOX we all just jeered.
No other word was spoken
Because all our hearts were broken
And the three people I admired a lot
Fry, Leela and the lovable robot
Are all gone, but won’t be forgot
The day the show died

And we were singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die

That's in fact a great song! Congrats on it from fryfan to fryfan!
I was near to tears when I first read it on The Leela Zone about half a year ago. Especially if you know the melody and the original text without hearing the song.

I love the parody, but it also went a long way to destroying the original American Pie for me.  Whenever I listened I'd raise a glass (or if I was driving, I'd nod nostalgically) to Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, Richie Valance, and the pilots who all crashed and inspired that song.

And now I mostly think of Futurama.   smile

My only beef with it is there's too many syllables in the line "And that good ole Bender's still drinking whiskey and rye."  Throws me off a bit.  But yeah, awesome.  Totally.

And to stay on topic:  Hooray, anchovies for Fry.  We should maybe draft a letter as well, to send with the anchovies to really drive the point home.

Wow. I never realized how long American Pie was.

Anyway, there's a problem with this admittedly clever plan, which someone brought up in the first page. Roswell was still on the air so the resonance of the tabasco sauce bottles was stronger. If people sent anchovies to Fox, would people there really get it? It was a one-off joke in the first season of a show that hasn't been in production in more than a year and besides, it's not like Fry = anchovies as Homer = donuts or even Twin Peake = cherry pie.

If DVD sales aren't enough to convince FOX that there's still a viable market for the show, sending them symbolism by the boatload won't probably do much good.

But a boy can dream, though.

Great song. Really clever. Makes me sad, though.  cry I hope that Fox still gets the message. After all, Futurama has been getting a whole lot more publicity, so...  hmpf Did people send in stuff for Twin Peaks? Hmmm...well, apparently that didn't work. Let us hope our Futurama fares better.  smile

Greetings people.  Smiley here from TLZ.  I recently sent Marc a full scale printable package of Nasty Norge Anchovies that you can print out on heavy greeting card stock, glue and paste around an outdated stinky mothball block, and send to FOX August 10th.  Those who don't wish to buy the mothball block or have a wood block rubbed in animal dung to be wrapped can just print the package up and add your own two cents.  I'm sure FOX will be p****d at everyone with the initials LWB from then on.  Tough.

Okay, I'm posting a link to my slightly modified version of the previously posted lable.

Note the increase in angry levels and the addition of Fry to the lable.

As for the issue of how well anchovies relate to Futurama and weather or not Fox gets the message, I say go for it anyway. Take into consideration these things: A) could you really live with yourself as a Futurama fan if you didn't take a chance and make an effort. B) there is the out-side chance that this thing could attract public interest. If word got out that a bunch of people accross the continent were mysteriously sending can after can of anchovies in the mail, local news programs might be interested in the movement and do a brief segment. If your local news is at all like mine, you'll find they stick all kinds of random stuff in between the actuall news, which this almost qualifies as.

Maybe not the local news, but entertainment magazines I'm sure would be interested.  For instance, when all the fans of... what is it, Farscape? sent in their bras, TV Guide had a blurb about it.  Then, about a month or two later, they had another blurb- announcing that the fans had achieved their goal.

And poo on whoever that was who was all pessimistic a few posts back.  As a wise man once said, "You can't give up hope just because it's hopeless!  You gotta hope even more, and cover your ears and go 'blah blah blah blah blah'!"

Go man, go!

Thanks for the comment, but you weren't suppose to mail them yet...50 cans, that is good... but you should've waited until a late July or early August, for FOX would get them by Aug 10. 

So if you've managed to get more anchovies please save them and mail them around early August.  That goes for all the people who are buying cans.  If you plan on sending them spoiled and are concerned that it will smell very bad before August, don't punch a open in them now, do it in late July and gave them time to spoil just enough to mail to FOX.  Or you could just punch a hole in it when you are about to mail them and let the shipping time that its course.  That is only if you want to send spoiled anchovies to FOX.

Thanks Y_L_B. What you already sent 50  eek cans? Oh yeah I knew there was something missing in the Anchovie label, I think your idea of the PE-Logo would be the best.  smile

Cans from Aldis!?  Spoiled cans of anchovies?  I suggested those already smelly mothball bars your suppose to put in your closet to keep moths and nosey visiting neighbors out, but if you want to go el cheapo with the anchovies- knock yourselves out!   FOX will either have to try and feed them to stray New York cats or make routine calls to the Hazardous Materials Disposal teams.   Just be sure not to put any Arabic wording or addresses on them or Homeland Security will freak enough to blow their brain slugs off!

Yeah, so don't fool around when putting writing on the cans.  Just go straight to point that the anchovies are merely a protest to make FOX remember of the one year anniversary of the show's cancellation.  If you want to also put "Bring Back Futurama" you may, but I doubt FOX will comply, but they'll know that us Futurama fans haven't forgotten and won't let this injustice die.

That all depends, what are you like?  I see myself as Fry mixed with a little Peter Parker and a dash of Robin Williams.
