I was reading Kurt's goodbye message and he brought this idea up and and I thought it could actually be kinda fun.  But since Kurt's no long here to make it, I figured I'd start the thread up.

The idea is pretty much just to try and make cohesive Futurama episodes out of these ideas that were mentioned by writers in the past.

Bender Steals God's Greatest Treasure
Calculon Haunts the Theatre
Backwards Time Traveling Son (I think this one would be really hard)
All Zapp Episode

I'm aware that this project could be very hard and might end up going nowhere, but I think it could actually be cool if done properly.

If anyone has any scenes you think could work with any of these primises, episode titles or characters you'd like to see appear in them be sure to post them and I (or whoever else wants to) can tey to weave into the final product.  I'm excited to see how this will end up!  love

It'd be nice to have a follow-on arc, if this happened. Something like this...


Bender Steals God's Greatest Treasure


Calculon annoys the Robot Devil so much that he gets kicked upstairs to Robot God's place. Robot God arranged with the Robot Devil for Bender to "steal" Calculon's soul, in order for Bender to become the greatest robot criminal ever and allow both Robot God and the Robot Devil to be free of Calculon, wash their hands of Bender in the event that Bender dies again, and allow Calculon to haunt his favourite theatre once this ridiculously circuitous plot wraps up.


Calculon Haunts the Theatre

Calculon's ghost now roams the theatre where Fry takes Leela on the date of their second anniversary of exiting the time loop from Meanwhile. Fry and Leela decide to catch it and contain it, when it interrupts the play they're watching, but end up driving it into a live powerline, which destroys it utterly (and plunges NNY into a blackout). In the darkness, Fry and Leela decide to get it on. Unable to see in the dark, Fry is confused by his futuristic Super Condom, and Leela becomes pregnant. Due to new regulations regarding mutants and their offspring, Leela is unable to terminate the pregnancy and must bear Fry's child.

The next episode deals with Leela's pregnancy, and Fry's utter ineptitude as he prepares for fatherhood. When the baby is born, both of them are relieved that it appears perfectly normal.


Backwards Time Traveling Son


Fry and Leela are amazed when their new son ages to manhood overnight, and less amazed once they realise that the Professor exposed him to a massive burst of chroniton radiation. In order to fix this, he must be aged backwards whilst travelling forwards in time, meaning that he will have his first thirty birthday parties in reverse order. Unfortunately, this also means that by the time he's thirty, he's also only a day old and will need to be switched with his prematurely-aged past self in order to get to grow up normally. Naturally, nobody but he will be able to remember this, leading to Fry and Leela being amazed when their son who was aged to manhood overnight is a baby again by lunchtime. They suspect Farnsworth, but can't prove a thing (which is fine with Farnsworth, as he doesn't remember any of it).


But less lame. Written by somebody better at this than me, in other words.

This is the plot that amuses me the most.
Hope they use it if they return.

But actually, Fry is biologically almost 40 years old.

Sad to hear that Kurt is leaving, but it's probably just another long PEELcation.

Yes. What does this have to do with the plot of that episode? I said thirty in connection with Fry and Leela's son, not with Fry (and male age is not necessarily a barrier to fatherhood).

Oh, oh!! I'm gonna have PJ as Fry and Leela's son from the future. PJ is a Fry-lookalike with purple hair streaks.

I would say P.J. sounds fitting, seems pretty obvious...
I would call this episode: "Back to the Fry-ture."

Pretty stale, anyone got anything better?

For the Calculon episode I'm trying to think of a title that incorporates a term for hammy actor with the title of a ghost movie.  Also, I'd consider "The Haunting" to be off limits since it was already used with "The Honking".

"The Literal Phantom of the Opera" seems nice.

I'm thinking about an episode, which I call "Too Many Frys"...

In this story, Fry screws up in a cloning machine and ends up duplicating himself, resulting in hundreds of identical copies of himself!

"The Honking" is actually a riff on "The Howling", a classic werewolf flick.

I didn't know that.  I even went out of my way to watch "The Haunting" in honor of the episode.  It sucks, don't watch it.

Although I think I kinda prefer it being a reference to "The Haunting".  It would've reminded me of the King of the Hill episode title "The Good Buck".

Dude. Go watch The Howling. Now. It's a much better movie, and it's got a much better ending than either The Haunting or The Honking.

Some of the effects sequences are pretty awful, but it makes up for them with a slew of in-jokes for people who've read the novel, cross-references to other werewolf and horror movies, and a ton of subtle foreshadowing/thematic references to wolves, werewolves, werewolf movies and such that you'll only pick up on when you watch it for the second time and pause it to take a look at what's in the background.

Also, the sequels get progressively weirder/stupider, and diverge from the book sequels (which also get progressively weirder/stupider). Don't watch them unless you're really into the whole "80s werewolf films with shitty effects and shittier plotlines" sub-niche of werewolf fandom.

Season 8 episode thread?  Dude.  Leave the episodes to the professionals.  The people who write for Futurama who are college educated.  None of this fan crap.

How do you think they became professionals? They wrote, they practiced writing, they probably had fan fictions of their own. There's nothing wrong with "fan crap". It's not bothering anyone, it's just people enjoying themselves, writing for fun. You don't have to read it if you don't want to, but at least let other people see it.
