Hello All,
This seems the least innappropriate place to put this, and I don't believe there's been a thread like this before, but just in case I'm wrong, I apologize in advance.

I was cruising through the IMDB(*) web-pages about Futurama and found a page of links to movies and such, that have referenced our favorite show. Curious, I followed a number of the links, but they only lead me to the appropriate IMDB page about the show or movie doing the referencing: No mention of what the reference actually was.
Here's the text of what I found:

Spider-Man 2: The Game (2004) (VG)

My Wasted Life (2000) (TV)
Unfaithful (2002)

I'm wondering if any of you might have seen the references to Futurama in any of the above-mentioned productions, or at least can tell me what they are- er, were?

Oh, and if anybody cares, you may find the page I refer to right here.

Later...

(*) IMDB= Internet Movie DataBase, in the off chance there's soomeone out there who doesn't already know what it means...

Well, the Simpsons Wrestling I know. In the background of one of the arenas, you can see Leela and Bender. Here's a shot:

According to the IMDB, "My Wasted Life" is a TV documentary about Matt Groening.

I kinda wanted to see Unfaithful before, but now I want to even more.

This thread might provide some insight into why the Spider-Man game is on the list.

You weren't the one who gave them the misinformation that there was a Futurama reference in the Spider-Man game, were you?  Because it's obviously a reference to Emeril Lagasse, not to Futurama.

Anyone else write a review of Futurama for the IMDB comments page? You should put your support in, as they're quite mixed.

I don't bother writing in previews for that website.  I only go to that site when I want info on a movie, cartoon, or TV Show. 

I read the message board on the Futurama page on the IMDB and some idiot went out of his way to bash Futurama in his praise for The Simpsons and Family Guy.  Pissed me off so bad!

Yeah I'd never write a comment or review for IMDB, I only take it as an information website and don't take into account anyone's opinions...

I don't think so.

Anyway, S-M2 is now replaced in the IMDB Futurama movie links page with the Duck Dodgers cartoon "Attack of the Drones" that has a cameo by Zoidy, see:

SM2 also has a level called "When Aliens Attack". I suspect that this is a coincidence though - both are making a reference to crappy FOX specials such as When Animals Attack.

That's an actual frame of Zoidy, isn't it? Anyone recognize what episode it's from? I can't tell...

It's called 'Send in the clones.'

John DiMaggio did the voice of Rhino in the Spider-man 2. That could also count as a reference, it's his most well known work.

Uh, no.  That's not how references work.  Unless Rhino said "Bite my shiny metal ass." or something, it doesn't count.

Pfft. This area is lucky if I stop in once a month. The "Re-Check/Weird Scenes" forum may have been my proving ground, but I'm more of an "Off Topic" kinda guy these days. That's where the real nerds hang out.  tongue

The kind which gets confused by similar titles on Simpsons episodes, that's what kind!

According to the IMDB page for "Unfaithful," the movie doesn't reference Futurama, but instead "features" it. This distinction is used to indicate when movies or TV shows are edited into other movies or TV shows. For instance, in one season 4 episode of The Sopranos, Tony watches "The Public Enemy," the old James Cagney gangster movie. So Public Emeny would be listed as "featured" in The Sopranos. [As opposed to Silvio's repeated imitation of Al Pacino as Michael Corleone, which would be listed as a "reference" to Godfather 3)

So, instead of Diane Lane saying "Bite my shiny metal ass," (which I'd happily do any time, by the way), some character in the movie was probably watching Futurama on TV.

If you're not sleeping by now, you are immune to my powers of over-explanation. Congrats!

What I meant was, that Zoidberg looks like an actual frame, and what episode is that frame from?

OK, everybody, let's say it together.....

Duck Dodgers Cartoon..... Zoidberg makes a cameo (pictured) in the episode of DUCK DODGERS entitled "Attack of the Drones".

Now, in case you're implying that the Zoidberg 'cel' was taken directly from Futurama, and wish to know EXACTLY which episode he was in that position in.... I can't help you there. I'd need a more recognizable pose. I think, however, that it's just an homage/cameo, and that it wasn't taken directly from Futurama's cel archive...

oh and by the way....  If Spideerman says KNOCK it up a notch, that's an Elzar reference. Since John DiMaggio apparently did a voice on it, it makes it an ever bigger possibility.

If he only said KICK it up a notch, THEN it's an Emeril reference.

Thank you.

No, I'm pretty sure that Emeril has said both "kick it up a notch" and "knock it up a notch" on different occasions.

The fact that John DiMaggio did one of the voices has nothing to do with anything.  He does a lot of voice-over work.

Unfaithful was on TV last night and I was curious to see how Futurama was featured in it and ... it wasn't!

There were a few scenes where people were watching TV but Futurama wasn't on. IMDB says "Music from Futurama" was in it as well but I didn't hear it. It's possible that the scene Futurama was featured in was cut out and there was no time to remove it from the credits.

It's also a very boring film.

Wow, did you know that the 'Futurama featured in Unfaithul' thing has been mentioned at least two other times on this message board, and both those threads mentioning it outdate this one... (eg 1, 2)Though each thread has a slightly different purpose to it.

In one of the threads about it (see eg 1, above)other people have also said they didn't notice Futurama in the movie. I would say you're right about it being cut and not being removed from the credits. It might possibly be available on the dvd in deleted scenes though. I don't know if anyone has checked.

A lot of people on the message boards are talking about the new movies coming to DVD.  Some believe it, and some don't.

This is the only thread I remembered, Chuckles.

I just wanted to point out the other threads since everyone is always so concerned about redundancy... You're not mad at me are you?
