The Character designs might be similar, which is no surprise at all, because they were made by the same person, but the animation style is different.

Also in LOTF, someone had metioned this in another post but Bart's head is on a shelve in the basement above Fry's Ronco Record Valut. I had seen that recently watching that episode on my computer. Now I will always see that.

Hi!

Another piece of info to know about the whole Futurama/Simpsons universe. Coming up is a Simpsons episdoe staring Matt Groneing in an actual speaking part. The important thing to note here is that he is titled as the creator of Futurama in this episode, so it looks like Futurama is a TV show in the simpsons world and vise versa.

Interesting. Even though we all know that, you couldn't have known we knew, or something.

This has been discussed at the NHC so I'll just copy in the comments

Actually, with this appearance... the entire Groening universe could entirely implode. Unless we all close our eyes and wish real hard...

By which I mean, MG has always, always maintained that "The Simpsons is fictional" and "Futurama is real". "The Simpsons" is still on the air in the year 3000, and acknowledged as a fictional cartoon show. Matt's "real" head lives on in a jar in Futurama. Matt even extended this rule to the Bongo comics - Ian Boothby (iirc) worked within these rules to work out the crossover in the comics last year.

So, if Matt appears as the creator of the world of Futurama within the Simpsons, the entire "world of 3000 as reality" is turned inside out. Its a circular logic nightmare, from which there's no escape. (unless one wants to now fundamentally change the concept of Futurama as entirely existing in Matt's brain (a la the "St. Elsewhere" finale model,) but, again, that warps the concept and breaks the rule.

Whoa. Wrap your heads around that one for a while. Its a 'parabox' worthy of the show no longer in production...

I think I've got it. You say the Simpsons is still on air during Futurama's time? Then it's not unreasonable that it would also be on the air for a significant period after Futurama ends... which leaves Matt Groening's head with the opportunity to make a documentary (Futurama) around Fry's life, and then insert a reference to it in a Simpson episode that's being produced around the time...

So 'My Big Fat Geek Wedding' must be an episode sent back from over a thousand years in the future to make it all work out! Brilliant.

Yeah, i saw it. It was funny. Milhouse asks Groening to sign his Bender Doll and Matt gives away a lock of his hair and a quick sketch of Fry.

Short, but funny.

I've seen quite a few Amy lookalikes in the Simpsons' 4th season:

*In "Kamp Krusty", there's a girl who looks like Amy, but with darker skin, rounder eyes and visible nostrils.

*In "Lisa the Beauty Queen", one of the beauty pagnent contestants somewhat resembles Amy.

*In "Marge vs. the Monorail", at the grand opening of the monorail, in the crowd behind Kent Brockman, there's teenage girl/young woman who looks a lot like Amy, but has African skin color.

*In "Selma's Choice", during the Duff Gardens commercial, one of the members of Hooray For Everything kinda looks like Amy.

I guess its inevitable for the creator of, arguably, THE two greatest animated comedy series of all time, not to overlap and use each show as a springboard for placement and as inspiration for the other...Just makes for great t.v  big grin

I remember something posted in another thread with framegrabs for comparison, or one of the elves on that cartoon maggie watches... he looks very eerily like professor farnsworth.  I'm far too lazy to actually go and look up said pictures, but the framegrab in question was from a really old episode, maybe even Simpsons season 1.....

You might have to relise that some [Probably all] of those episodes aired before Futurama.

Also, did anyone see the Simpsons episode, when they shrink and travel inside Mr. Burns in a tiny space ship!? Could it be any more Futurama?

The shinking/tiny ship are both direct references to the fantastic voyage. Both the Simpsons and Futurama referenced the same thing.

Thats all wild and fantastic, but the point I was trying to make was, Why would they (matt Groening and co) refer/parody the same thing in the Simpsons, when it had already been done in Futurama?

If Matt Groening avoided parodying everything parodied in The Simpsons, there would be practically nothing left to parody.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

Fair play, but I really didn't ask my question very well  smile

What I'd meant to say was, 'Do you think Matt Groening intentionally parodied the Fantastic Voyage in the Simposons, after he had already done so in Futurama, as some sort of statement to Fox?'...or am I in fantasy land again...?

its probably just has way of letting us know that he still thinks of Futurama and that he wants to continue the show instead of the attitude its canceled o well I still have the Simpsons. Also he probably is using it to give hints to Fox.
