There's an adult site dedicated to our Ms. Turanga; as far as I know, the only adult site dedicated to a cartoon character.

I bet that has Wilma Flintstone and Judy Jetson very angry...

If you do a google image search for futurama / Fry and Leela etc with safe search off you come across a lot of naked artwork, some of it quite erotic in nature.

I like this with the colour added!

Incidentally is there actually only one scene in Futurama with rain, i.e. that one outside the museum when he is protesting for the release of his fossilised dog.

I tried to search images of futurama last night with rain but without any luck in that sense, I did come across some very enticing images of Leela though!

There are a lot of talented artists who do some fantastic rated "R" and "X" Futurama art, some erotic, some not-erotic and good.

The artist Furronika is perhaps the absolute best when it come to doing Futurama art that pays attention to every minute detail of anatomy - not the adult oriented stuff but anatomy in general.  He pays strict attention to how a very athelic Leela would look in real life - his sstuff is good enough to be used in a Grey's Anatomy textbook.  He also does a fantastic job with Leela's tan lines from her one-piece swimsuit.

Most of his other stuff is just too off-the-wall for me to enjoy...   no no

I think in the episode "Brannigan Begin Again" there is a scene where Fry and two other characters get caught in a rain storm on a high gravity planet.

@Coldy- You would like Greeley's sci fi.  His stuff is religious but in a subtle way- the focus is more on the characters and adventures.  He actually has very strong, kick ass heroines who fight alongside their guys and often are the leaders of missions.  But they also   have their feminine, Earth Mother  side and show their vulnerability.  And Greeley's writings about sex are really great- romantic and spiritual rather than pornographic.  He has gotten in some hot water with the Catholic church on those views.  Three of his best sci fi novels (if you can get them in print still are "Godgame" (which has a plot remarkably like "Godfellas" ) and "The Final Planet" and "Angel Fire".  He also has a sense of humor remarkably like yours.

It isn't.  But you do seem to know a lot about the pornographic ring of Futurama type fanart... just sayin'....  roll eyes

gaschief, the only other example I could think of was the one FordMustang pointed out... but I can't recall if that was part of a deleted scene or actually in the episode... the more I think about it, it seems it was in the episode...

Oh, yes, it was definitely in the episode - I always enjoy the scene where they first get off the ship and feel the effects of the gravity; especially later when Fry sticks out his tongue before the rain slams into him. It also contains the immortal line about how if Leela had let them use the other dolly, "we could have broken it and gone home by now", or something.   laff

But indeed, that's about it for rain on the show. Evidently they went with rain in the Jurassic Bark scene to lend more weight to Fry's dedication to Seymour, I suppose.

Also, this has now become the boobies-and-porn thread.

I often wonder if rain is something that is difficult to animate since one has to draw the effects of the rain splashing on surfaces and created puddles as well as the various reflections that puddles create so maybe this was why the rainfall was kept to a minimum?  I certainly had that experience drawing my silly picture.

@Ralph Snart- I agree with you about Furronika's work. I just pulled it up now.  He is very detailed in his realistic portrayal of people- almost like Michelangelo- but at the same time the adult content subjects of his pictures are very disturbing to me.

On the topic of rain:

Typically, weather is used as a device to reinforce and parallel what is going on in the plot or what the characters are feeling. As such, raining when it's sad, etc. Because Futurama is a comedy, it makes sense that it would generally be sunny. To me, anyway, this seemed so obviously used in Jurassic Bark (the only time it was used this way) it seemed to become almost a gag in itself, but that's just me.

Yeah, I saw one of his Futurama pics that was almost a "Hard R" rating, then got a surprise when I saw some of his other works.

Whoa!    eek   puke    eek

I must be very sheltered - I didn't know what a "Furry" was until I watched an episode of "CSI" and googled Furronika's art.

It's the only time my wife has ever heard me yell:

Does anyone know if female nipples are showable on cable? Seems like wet T-shirt shots are OK even on broadcast TV but I don't think the uncovered nipple barrier has been broken on cable. Unless it's in something "educational". Perhaps they are still grappling with uncovered belly buttons.

Just musing if Futurama itself will ever answer the question of just how normal Leela is.

Indeed; that's more of a literary thing, generally, but true enough, in a show of the quality level of Futurama there are often little touches like that. Of course, it's also sad/bittersweet at many other moments as well, but somehow they kept the use of rain down to a bare minimum.

You mean as in, used almost stereotypically? Or a bit of a cliche? Maybe, but to me it's still more that they possibly just wanted to demonstrate the hopelessness he felt at that moment, in addition to showing that he would campaign for the return of the dog even under less-than-ideal conditions.
Oh, it also just occurred to me that in one of the oh-so-depressing scenes at the end of that episode, it was raining on Seymour too, wasn't it?.. or maybe not, I haven't seen it for a while. I just know he was shown in different weather conditions.

Seems kind of odd that the nipple is the only thing men and women have in common when it comes to the breast, yet it's the one thing they can't show on TV on the female breast.

That picture is amazing Coldangel!

I know how you feel Coldy.  I'm laying down to get a few hours sleep before I place my face in the reaping machine known as "The Workplace".

This is sad:  The only thing I have to look forward to is the release of the next Futurama DVD.  That's sad.  If it sucks (in my opinion) as bady as BBS did, I may go Gonzo and leave the community - forever.

And yes, some people will see that as a good thing.

So you'd leave the community over one movie Ralph?  That seems counter-intuitive to the work you've done in securing other people's positions in this place...

Also... Furries aren't that bad... and there's worse on the internet. ..much worse.

Hello, Ralph Snart!  I would be one of those people who would fight tooth and nail not to see you leave the community!  You have been the one to be the voice of reason... I know you have to choose the path best for you, but newbies (noobs?) like me relied on your kind advice and your kind words on the forum  You helped give us a Futurama voice.  I sure hope we will not lose your voice because it is one of the biggest assets to the Futurama community!  Please stay with us, Ralph- there are many who love and admire you! Please! Pleae! Please!

No... they don't

To be honest... we have to leave, all of us, from eachother.. at some point or another.  That is how things are.  It's pure and it's true... but there can be beauty in the breakdown.  If we never meet again, at least we met once... and somewhere real or otherwise, we'll be together again in the congregation of some sleeping mind.

People, for some reason Comcast is being picky about who contacts me.  Over the past week I've had e-mails from VF and Coldy returned to them.  Until I can get this sorted out, if you send an e-mail to me and it bounces, use my eleanor_999@hotmail.com mailbox.

Also another way of determining that I didn't get an e-mail, I'm usually prompt (within a few hours) of acknowledging I got a message.

Winna, I'll give a long diseratation about my bad feelings towards PEEL in the morning after I got off work.  The things that has turned me happened this week and makes me realize what a hypocrtical place this board has become - and I will say it is totally due to the OffTopic residents.

After I have my say, I'm sure somebody will ban me and I really don't care.  Ego's will be bruised.

No, there won't any Kip and Speli pornfest or a lot of derogatory comments, just the unvarnished, true insights that have been pounded home to me over the past week in general.

I'm not sure what specifically you're talking about, but I do agree that it can be a bit stifling and hippocritical at times.  I usually point it out in a subtle manner, and if somebody gets it, they get it.

Thing is, I think there are good people... or at least people I'd like to communicate with... and on top of that, there's been a pretty steady flow of fresh blood each year.  I can't imagine what you'd have to say to get banned, I just personally hope it doesn't need to get to that... hope work doesn't get too crazy tonight, maybe your thoughts will come round full circle in the time.

I don't know why people even talked about that peelocalypse thing... just nonsensical chitter chatter if you ask me.

Does anyone ever talk about the platonic relationships of Futurama anymore?  Such as the Bender, Fry, Leela friendship triangle going on.  I wanna be friends like that.  smile

But I don't trust machines.

They are inherently more reliable than human beings having esentially a series of operations dictated by pure reason. Man on the other hand is awash with a complex series of conflicting emotionally laden drives!

In saying that I wouldn't trust Bender either!

Actually I didn't know the shippy thread was supposed to focus on platonic relationships too, I would have thought their were other threads for that...I could be wrong havent been here for even a year yet!

He clearly does like several characters in the show... he's just too macho to show it.

Note that he's basically a child with some of the mental capacity of an adult... teenagers, 20 year olds you say?

Mmm, that's one reason why I quite like Bender Gets Made, and feel it's underrated as an episode - in that one he showed that he secretly does care about both Leela and Fry, the way he felt pretty guilty about anything happening to them, and defied the Robot Mafia to try to spare them from harm.

He also had a nice relationship with his turtle, naturally.

Ralph, after all that you've posted in the Avatar thread, I am supremely vexed that you should even consider extracting yourself from this community.

At least post enough rants that you'll get banned, go out in style!  tongue

Seriously, you're one of the guys I most relate to here. It would be extremely traumatic to see you go, especially with advanced warning.

He occasionally shows hints of robo-humanity, then I guess even some of the lowliest humans do to.

Bender is actually one of my favourite characters but i think Bender is funny because he is a robot with the personality of a very lousy human being, the same character played by a human would just seem like a bastard most of the time and not that funny.
Somehow these characteristics projected onto the form of an automaton make them highly laughable!
Any thoughts on why that is, bearing in mind we are straying a bit of the shippy theme, albeit in the context of analysing benders personality so maybe not too off topic!
