What celebrity head that has never appeared on Futurama be your pick of Dream Celebrity Head Cameo?

Charlie Chaplin?
Adolph Hitler? (Remember his head in a jar of Duff Beer on the Simpsons?)
Yuri Gagarin?
Oliver Stone if Bender just keeps punching him in the face?

Elvis Presley, John Belushi, and Jay Sherman. And imagine what feeding Mike Tyson would be like.

More people I know - i.e. British stars.  Although I recognise most of the American stars in Futurama, there are a couple of jokes I've probably missed by not knowing who some celebrities are.  smile

John Cleese.

And for some reason John McEnroe. Maybe if an episode featured a future version of Wimbledon or US Open.

Edit: And welcome to PEEL, Roboticus. Enjoy it here.  big grin

First one end of El Chupa Nibre, then the other end!

Meg Ryan might make a good head in a jar for the show

Vincent Price and Peter Lorre.
And all of the Kids in the Hall since I love them so.
And how about Phil Hartman since I heard he was originally supposed to be the voice of the Zapper? Or would that be too sad.....

I think Phil Hartman would be too sad.   frown  Besides, who would do his voice?

Falco's head in a jar must sing, or else! Fortunately, since Futurama is full of late 20th century references, and the Simpsons have refered to Falco numerous times (from "Help Me Dr. Zaius" to "Thank you, Taco, for that lovely tribute to Falco&quot wink, there's a good chance we will get to see this, and I won't have to destroy the world.

Phil Hartman's voice would of course be handled by Billy West. I think they could make it tasteful yet funny (just watch the first episode of season 5 of News Radio to see how it's done).

I'd also love to see:

* Mr. T
* Devo's heads in jars (wearing their "energy dome" hats on the jars, with Alan and David fighting over one)
* Rupert Murdoch and News Radio's Jimmy James (not Stephen Root, the actor; Jimmy James, the character)
* David X. Cohen, together with whoever registered with the name David Cohen before him (assuming the X is because of guild rules)
* Alf
* the cast of Friends, with Marcel the monkey somehow still alive and screwing with David Schwimmer's jar
* the "not so great" Presidents at the end of the hall--from Grant to Harrison to George W. Bush
* the hall of Soviet leaders (but they may have to skip Andropov, because I don't remember them ever admitting that he died), mainly because I want to see how Kruschev bangs his shoe on the table
* Eminem--with a contest to pick your favorite of three new colors for him
* Michael Jackson, plus Michael Jackson's original face in its own jar
* Tracey Ullman
* Scooter
* Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, mislabeled (and Fry asks them "Which one of you sang "I Wear My Sunglasses at Night?&quot wink

I like the idea of the hall of Soviet leaders - they get put opposite the US leaders and then you have the biggest criminal damage case in which no one outside was involved.

British Kings and Queens, especially Charles I  wink

Matt Groening and the production team behind Simpsons and futurama! (ie James l Brooks and Sam Simon)!


But I would settle for Homer's head in a jar at the very least....

Matt was in the Head Museum scene in "Space Pilot 3000". Granted it wasn't a major part, which I think we're talking about here.

Just wanted to point it out.  wink

Maybe it could be a Texas Death Match. Or:

"Two heads enter. No head leaves."
"Eh, isn't that, 'one head leaves?'"
"Shut up and get in there, Mathers. Prepare the piranhas!"

I'd like too see Ron Howard. He's made a couple of appearances on the Simpsons and was heaps funny.

Love the Michael Jackson . Michael Jacksons original face idea. That would be great to see.

Bill Gates in the "Hall of Evil" or something, together with Ghengis Kahn, Atilla the Hun, and others who tried to grasp for world rule.

I still think a "Hall of Incredible Intelligent People" with Stephen Hawking, Einstein, Newton, Bohr, Da Vinci etc would be great.

I like the "Hall of Evil" idea. It would be especially fun to throw in someone who's known as an all-around good guy today....

Fry: What's Michael Jordan" doing in the Hall of Evil?

Leela: Michael Jordan? Don't you remember?

Fry: I remember him being a great basketball player. Then a not-so-great baseball player. Then a great baseball player. Then he devoted his life to helping poor kids and ending violence.

Leela: Oh, right, I forgot you got frozen before 2004.

Fry: What happened in 2004?

Hermes (o/s): Did someone say 2004? Never mention that year again! What if Michael Jordan's head overhears?

Of course you never mention what happened in 2004 (even though it's obvious: that's the year when Michael Jordan conspired to get every last decent show taken off TV--what, you thought it was just Futurama that's going away after next season?).

Eminem's head: "You wanna talk like me, walk like me? Hell, I can't even walk! I'm a ****ing head in a jar! Now don't you wanna grow up to be just like me?"

By the way, has everyone heard the Pet Shop Boys' new song about Eminem?

One more question: Are Britney's breast implants floating in the jar with her head?

you can put anything in a jar and then it's easy to make fun of it: from Arnold Schwarznegger to Sylvester Stallone, from Bruce Willis to David X Cohen, from Madonna to Woody Allen...

the funnyest heads I've seen till now maybe I think are: Leonard Nimoy, US presidents, Pamela Anderson, Leonardo Di Caprio ...and, why not, also Matt Groening's one in episode ACV01 Space Pilot 3000-

The heads of N'sync will be good when thrown out the window.

And a Michael Jackson head would be great. He'd have little robotic legs doing the moonwalk, and then do his famous 'Whooo!' spin.

Probably rank quite high on his wierdshit-o-meter if you ask me.  wink

I might inject some F1 stars into the F1 fanfic I will be writing. Damon Hill loves taking the piss out of Murray Walker so maybe I'll have his head in the jar doing the commentary only he's gone senile and mad and talks just like Murray anyway. Not saying Murray was senile and mad of course...

But it does takes a special personality to make mistakes like
"Schumacher's appeal for ignoring the chequered flag is next Tuesday"

and more over
"Mansell knows exactly where Senna is because he can see him in his earphones..."
