For the last time, the cancellation of Futurama had absolutely nothing to do with the content of the show.

Can I prove it would have failed? Yes. They don't take ideas from fans. If you were to send them your idea, it would be put through the paper shredder. Don't believe me? They say so right in their faq section. Your idea would never had gotten to Groening. I hope you know that. So, now that I've proved it's failure to save the show, I don't have to shut up, ok?  big grin

And the other point has already been addressed. BTW, don't put your screen name down if you're not going to talk to people from the board.

Someone at FOX support Futurama, you gotta be kidding me!

Futurama does not need a new character, and shoving The Robot Devil in Planet Express would make no sense what so ever! They also introduced Dwight as a new character, he got far didn't he?

Futurama works on the fact that you know the characters and you know how they will react:
Fry + Leela = Love-thing
Hermes + Zoidberg = Hatred
Leela + Amy = Cuteness contest
Shoving in a new character is irratic and ruins the "community" of Futurama.

The creators of the show (in fact any show) have a strict policy about not using fansubmitted material, unless you have an agent (and even then you'll have to be extremely lucky indeed). The avoid fanfics too.

They don't do this to be mean, or because they hate fanfics (in fact Matt have said he love the idea of fanfics). They do so to protect themself from lawsuits. If they read fanstuff, some zealous idiot would one day note how a very specific situation or concept, is an exact copy of the fanfic he/she wrote 3 years ago, and submitted to crapyfanficsthatnoonereads.co m. Some will even ask for money for theft of their intellectual property.

If they avoid fanstuff, they can in good faith claim not to know about it. Hence why your idea would be shredded.

of course adding new characters would have saved Futurama. look how it saved the X-Files. How after the addition of agents Doggett and Reyes the ratings skyrocketed up and up..no wait, i just dreamed that. Their addition took an already dying show and exploded its corpse into a million tiny pieces. So of course it would save Futurama. Someone should give that jerk Groening a good stern talking to!

<Heavy sigh>
Futurama was cancelled owing to a long running feud between Matt G. & Co. and Fux exec's.
The Fux execs thought they knew better what made a good show.
Matt G. proved them dead, flat, plain-ole' WRONG!
And they never forgave him for it: They marooned his show in the
$hi++!e$+ time slot there is: They gave it zee-row promotion: They pre-empted it at a whim, and: In general, did everything in their power to undermine the show.
Despite the show winning numerous awards!
Then, when their actions came to fruition, did they even have the courtesy to officially announce the cancellation? No: They put it on "hiatus."
Did they even give Matt G. a begrudging, inscincere (sp?) "congratulatory" phone call? No: All Matt Heard from Fux was an echoing silence.
Did they have the old-fashioned guts to announce the cancellation of Futurama? No: They simply left it off the fall '03 schedule, and let the fans read between the lines.
Now, Fux's lawyers, evidently sic'ed on innocent fansites (like TLZ) by Fux exce's, seem intent on erasing Futurama from memory.

In the face of this grudge, this vendetta, this unreasoning, abject, obdurate hatred[/i] HOW IN THE NINE-BILLION NAMES OF GOD COULD A NEW CHARACTER HAVE SAVED THE SHOW?
*ahem*
<dials thermostat down 1000 Kelvin>
My point?
Futurama was doomed from the start. Nothing save a complete change in Fux management and astronomical ratings could've saved the show.
Adding a new character? That's not even a blip in the noise at the bottom of the graph.
Now, Fux may own the legal rights to the show, but we, the fans, own its heart.

Okay, I'll shut up now...

Let's just create an alternate universe where Futurama is loved by all and respected by Fox, and we can all eat at Helmut's restaurant... wait, he died, nvm.

And we keep telling you that wouldn't have saved Futurama. Not even the robot devil could have saved Futurama from the axe that FOX held over its head.

Deal with it!   big grin

The Hypno Toad, you keep inviting abuse, it would be rude of us not to accept.  Now learn to play nice, before one of our beloved mods bounces you to oblivion.

I know, why not add Fry's long lost little cousin, Oliver, to the show.  After all a little kid always saves a dying show, no matter the cause of the fatality.

Just like you can't prove that you could. Or you would have said "I did save Futurama" Since you didn't, please stop saying that.

Yes! The hypnotoad is down for the count for now. And saying things like kiss my ass won't help win friends. I too am done.

I enjoyed my Poppler's reference, and here's a real question, can we start a "Kill off posters?"  topic.   We can vote on which annoying peel poster hit's the bricks.

Just an idea.

I believe I've only made one thread in my entire career here.  Bother it all you'd like 

I never said you were the annoying poster I was referring to. 

And as to your claim that I never use your topics as intended, I point you to your very own 'best head' posts.  I think you'll find my evidence presented there.
