I really hope so,by all means, futurama is good enough for me, have all the dvd's. But since it's canceled and the simpsons is probably at the end of its top. I truly wish that there'll be a new cartoon form matt's team that will be in league with his previous efforts, futurama and simpsons.

So, what do you think? Can you live without groening cartoons? I can't, its been like an education/drug for me! It has tought me things in way parents can't teach you, just like tom and jerry   big grin .

Man I so desperatly wait for new information concerning a new cartoon!

It depends on what it looks like, but it won't replace Futurama.  And The Simpsons has its own special place too of course.

Where else could he go? Hes been to the future many parts of the present and i don't think a cartoon set in the past would be very good. Any ideas?

There are so many ideas! You just have to imagine them, that's why futurama and the simpsons were so great! I do believe that he has more ideas for a new show. Maybe we can think of something cool?

In an interview for the BBC's Simpsons night a few years ago Greoning said that he was developing a new series about rock and roll. He said the Simpsons was his take on the American family, Futurama is his take on sci'fi, and that he wants to do to rock and roll what the Simpsons did to the American family. He sounded like he had it all worked out, saying something like "it's too early to give you specific details, but it's all worked out and it's gonna be great" Although this was a few years ago now, maybe he abandoned it, or maybe he's been developing it all this time?
If he doesn't go for the above idea, I'd like to see Life in Hell as a series.

Speaking of which, has anybody heard about a new animated sci-fi comedy that premieres on the Sci-Fi channel in the fall?  Apparently Maurice LaMarche is lined up to do some of the voices.

Ha ha, that's a good one. A Sci-fi show on the Sci-Fi Channel.  laff  laff  laff It's probably a reality show about the paranormal.

Quoted from SFX:
TRIPPING THE RIFT (Sci-Fi channel)

STARRING: Maurice LaMarche, Gina Gershon

THE LOW-DOWN: The US Sci-Fi Channel's first animated series is comedy sci-fi, stuffed with cliches galore.  The series follows the misadventures of the Free Enterprise.  The ship's characters include an alien captain, Chode, robot slave Gus, sexy andriod Six and a slacker teenage boy.  The crew tackle issue from God to love.  Incompetently.

And I was afraid it was going to be a Futurama ripoff...  hmpf

Hey, this brings up a probably already said question: why doesn't a sci-fi channel play/ pick up Futurama?

That rock and roll show doesn`t sound that good. But since it is Matt, i guess it would be really good.

That came right at the very end of the interview in the middle of the credits. It was recorded in early 2000. I think he may have been a bit busy with Futurama to develop another show and from the way he told his idea it sounded like he'd just come up with it on the spot.

Of course if I do see his name in the credits of a show about rock n roll then I'll eat my shoes.

Then I guess you didn't hear that they run a delivery business....

The original short is available somewhere on the internet.  It's sort of funny but not great.  (It's also definitely adults-only, so don't be surprised by what you see.)

Futurama is not a "simpsons in space" show...

So if Matt decides to create a 3rd cartoon show, I would like to see something completely different from the simpsons and Futurama.

and a show with Akbar or Binky could be cool.

Dirtier than that, but it doesn't matter since they'll have to clean it up for Sci-Fi.

I can't believe someone else actually remembers that show.  Man it was bad.

Tripping The Rift is being turned into a regular series? Nooooo...

They showed the original short on some "Star Wars Fan Films" thing on the scifi channel. Aside from being entirely inappropriate for the show(it had little to do with Star Wars, and if I recall correctly, it was done by proffessional writers/animators), it was probably the least funny scifi parody I've ever seen.

Futurama gets cancelled, and this crap gets turned into a series. Where's the justice in that?

Well, you never know. The "Milton" shorts on SNL sucked, but "Office Space" was hilarious.

Yeah? Well, what can I say, I disagree with ya there. I liked the Milton shorts.

But even so, Office Space wasn't really about Milton. The premise expanded, and he ended up just being a minor character. It sounds like the Tripping the Rift show will have the same premise/characters as the original short.

Matt Groening should make a cartoon about 'Manos the hands of fate'. Trogo would be the star.

Nothing can top Futurama.  So if Matt Greoning does make another cartoon, it won't be good.  And Tripping The Rift is like South Park meets Star Wars.

Yeah, that's an insult to both South Park and Star Wars; and I say that as someone who doesn't even like South Park.

I agree, and I think both are awesome.

Homerjay is to blame for bringing this idiocy down upon us.  I say we burn her.

Why would you want a new cartoon, nothing is going to top Futurama, and nothing will top the Simpsons in terms of popularity/money earned from the franchise.
