And I just can't see that robot being in the show. It just doesn't look Groening to me.

Unlikely.

Greg Weisman, the creator of Gargoyles STILL refuses to give everything away about his unused plans for the show, even though it's been off the air since the late 90s.

And I'm willing to be Matt Groening has a slightly better chance of bringing back Futurama than Greg Weisman does of Gargoyles. (Although the 10th Anniversary DVD is coming out next month! YAY!!)

I know that one of the unused plots in the show was mentioned on the DVD commentary in the second episode (I think it was the second episode but don't take me up on that).  It had to do with a race of people that were servants.  You can see them in the first couple episodes.  They wear grey jumpsuits with numbers on them for idenfication purposes according to Groening.  I can't remember exactly what the whole story was behind them but I'm pretty sure that that is pretty close to what he said on the commentary.

nah if my memory serves me right that was n't an unused plot, it was goin to be like a fundamental background thing in the futurama universe, a sorta huge class divide between slave like workers and normal people. but they ditched it cos they did n't really know what to do with it, and it would kinda suck the story in about some class struggle.

Yeah... the mysterious "Number 9 Man" occasionally seen in the background during the first couple of seasons was a leftover from that idea.

The problem isn't that Matt Groening or David X Cohen don't want to make new ones.
In fact they try to get Futurama back on air as well. The problem is that Fox refuses to produce new ones or to sell the rights on the show so that other networks can do it.

Check out the latest attempt to get it back/ get revenge on FOX, the The official AFF thread (Revenge on Fox!) thread.
But pleast also check out the big discussion we had about new Petititions and ideas to get it back: Futurama is over, and there's not much you can do about it.

There's another person from the number cult at the black tie reception in 300BBs She wears a white dress with the number 1 on it because obviously she is the bee's knees, the cat's whiskers and the dromedery's hump.

I think another charcter that was obviously going to be in a later episode was Freda Waterfall, as she was seen in ATOF and we all know what that means. She's got the shelf life of milk in a steel mill.

I wondered if Larry, Walt and Ignor maybe be Farnsworth's children. If so, that would explain why especially Ignor seems to have inherited Fry (the family not the person) stupedness.

Since listenening to them talk about trying ot get an ep about Barbados slim, I've been trying to think of one myself and it is strangely hard.

Didn't Freida Waterfall appear in one of the Futurama comics after the show ended?  I remember hearing that, and she suffered yet another gruesome death like her foremothers.
