Is what I want you to help me make!    big grin We have the animation team we just need more ideas for the episode. We have some ideas but more would be appreciated.    smile We don't need full fanfics just general outlines and ideas for episodes. Thanking anyone that helps in advance.

EDIT: Right our ideas so far, Zoidberg was supposed to be a Prince but there was some sort of mishap where Norman got the job instead. *Haven't figured out this part of the story yet.* When Zoidberg finds out he is the heir to the throne he makes a loudhigh-pitched squeal which (in a mars attack kind of Parody) puts an end to the b-story which is the heads in jars trying to take over earth. Because the sueal was so high-pitched it broke all the glass jars the heads were in.

Of course we might scrap this idea entirely and go with one of your ideas. (If someone posts some!

The opening credit joke is probably going to be the word RELOADED. The theme music may be played on guitar and bass instead of the regular tune.

Could someone please give us some support and ideas?

I believe that's what he just said...

What is your animation team actually planning to make the cartoon in?  Flash, maybe?

Sorry Nurdbot no cameos- we're trying to keep it as close to Futurama as our small minds can make it. Yes we are doing it in flash and its gonna take a long long time.

I could make him a background character... thats it though. Only if you people help us write it! We need the mushy goo inside your head. The episode needs to start with an establishing shot... it should probably be either PlanEx or the Head Museum.

Tired of being stuck underground with no sky or daylight, and the upper civilization dumping all their waste in the sewers, the mutants decide to other throw the surface. But they're heavily outnumbered, so they enlist the help of the mutants living in the sub-sewer.

They all go up to the surface, and other throw civilization, and trap them in the sewers to see how they like it. Leela's Parents object though, because that would mean Leela being trapped in the sewers too, but her parents didn't want her to have the life of a mutant. The rest of the mutants decide to just leave Leela's parents in the sewers with everyone from the surface.

At first the sewer mutants love the surface, but it's not long before they start missing the stenches of the sewers, and long for sewer burgers, and the sunlight is showing just how hideous they all look.

Meanwhile, everyone trapped in the sewers is getting restless, and can't stand the stench. Leela is happy though, because it means she gets to be with her parents. But the rest of the people start picking on Leela's parents, because they're mutants, and it was mutants, which trapped them there in the first place. Leela soon fights them off, and Leela's parents offer to show everyone a way out of the sewers. Leela's parents know the sewers inside-out because that's where they've lived their entire lives.

After a long traitorous crawl through dingy sewers, they finally escape. And then it's payback to the sewer mutants who trapped them there. The mutants are forced to live back in the sewers, but their time on the surface has made them realize that the sewers is where they'd rather be anyway...

That's my story idea anyway  smile Also, obviously it can be changed, and there would be a lot more character interaction between the Planet Express crew in the sewers and stuff.

We need people to do voices! Anyone up to it? People who want to help write give me your AIM or Hotmail adress.

I'm thinkin about posting the script we have so far, but there seems to be a large lack of interest.

i wish you very very good luck in your quest for a new episode! you know, i bet it'l be one of the best futurama episodes ever made! wow, thats really cool. You are gonna need some really good flash artists though. making a box slowly drift accross the screen is one thing, but making nibblers crazy walk cycle is another. lol

Thank you very much you 3, still though we need voices, I have some animation in GIF form so I could post that somewhere. (Suggestions?)

Heres the first draft of the start of the script, its pretty terrible, no-one scream!

(In the Planet Express locker room)
(Bender has his arms in his locker violently thrusting them at something, while he’s doing this we can hear Nibbler squealing)
Fry: I'm so nervous Bender. I'm going to go on my first date with Leela... finally.
Bender: Aw what do you have to be nervous about meat bag? Just because you’re going to have your one big chance to impress the woman you've been in love with for years that is far smarter and better looking than you?
Fry: I guess when you put it like that Bender I really don't have anything to worry about.
(Go from the locker room to Leela who is sitting next to a window on the videophone)
Morris: And that’s the meaning of life.
Leela: Wow Dad, I never would have guessed that was the real meaning of life (looks disgusted).
Leelas Mom (Whats her name again?): So Leela are you looking forward to your big date with Fry tonight?
Leela: Oh mom.
Leelas Mom: My daughter- dating an earth boy- *sniffles*. I'm so proud of you sweetie.
(Leg Mutant and Three Armed Mutant walk in.) 
Leg Mutant: Have U got any shin pads? I'm going fencing.
3-armed Mutant: (Looks at video screen)  What is that!
Morris: That’s the sun.
Leelas Mom: We've felt it, its wondeful.
3-armed mutant: I've had enough of seeing this gastly sun!  (Throws leg mutant at Video receiver and transmission cuts out.)
Leela: That was weird.
(Bender and Fry walk in, Fry avoids Leela gaze)

Bender: Well, me and Fry are going out to steal you a gift.
Leela: Aw how thoughtful.
(Leela smiles at Fry and Fry blushes.)
Zoidberg: And Zoidberg will come too!
(Zoidberg walks in and hugs Bender and Fry.)
Bender: Sure never hurts to have an extra accessory to thievery.
Zoidberg: Hurray!
(Go to the Proffessor in his lab- he has a huge gun infront of him and he's using a tiny tiny tool ((screwdriver?)) he makes a tiny tiny adjustment and yells.
Proffessor: Huzzah!  Now its perfect!
(Amy walks in)
Amy: Whatchya doing Fessor?
Proffessor: I can't remember dammit!
(Proffessor walks away mumbling angrily) 

We see Fry Bender and Zoidberg walking th streets, They walk past a shop called Squid, Lobster and Beyond, where there is all manner of horrible sea creatures in the window)
Zoidberg: The one-eyed female would love these!
(Zoidy points to some very horrible little blue creatures. Bender hits Zoidberg and he screams)
Fry: Are you crazy Zoidberg?
Bender: Yeah theres way to much security to steal something like that!
(They walk past a shop called Diamonds Are A Rich Guy Looking To Get Somes Best Friend)
(Fry looks in the window at a ring with a pretty little diamond in it)
Fry: Its perfect! Leela will love it!
Zoidberg: You humans show love with rocks? Hurra! People have been throwing rocks at me for years!
Bender: Fry don't be such an idiot. She' d love THIS!
(Bender gestures at an enormous diamond ,we go to a close up of Fry.)
Fry: I don't know...
(Sirens wail and we see Bender holding the diamond)
Bender: Cheese it!
(Bender Fry and Zoidberg run/scuttle away)
(As Zoidy and Fry and Bender run past a drain we go down into it to see the mutants in there town square discussing something.)
Duayne: And no that was not chocolate milkshake. Any more business?
3-armed mutant: My fellows. Today I have seen.... the sun!!
*Gasps*
3-armed mutant: And I think its about time we made it ours!
(We go back to Planet Express and here a knock on the door. The proffessor is sitting in an armchair.)
Smitty putting on a girly voice: Helloo. I'm selling candy.
Proffessor:Get my gun.

(Amy looks out the window)
Amy: Proffessor its the police. 
Proffessor: THe police? Oh God!
Hermes: The police!! Er... do they have a sniffer dog?
Amy: Yup
Hermes: Jahs dreadlocks!
(We see the Proffessor behing him with lots of weapons in his arms He goes and starts flushing them down the toilet and Hermes is next to him pouring white powder into tap water that is already running.)
Proffessor: Good idea Hermes! With that talcum powder the sewers won't smell of  toxic nuclear weapons.
Herme: Er, yes.... talcum powder...
(Leela opens the door for the police.)
Leela: What seems to be the problem officers?
Smitty: Officer Bones followed the stench from the scene of a big robbery earlier to here.
URL: So if you don't mind we'd like to do an illegal search of your property. 

(Smitty and Earl smash Leela to the floor and are pulled into the building by the police dog. They are pulled by the dog to Zoidbergs office who has a fold-out ((a-la porne mags)) and on the cover it says “Nemos Fish Stores” Zoidberg is drooling over this when the dog gets to Zoidberg ((The source of the stench from the crime scene)) The dog takes one sniff at Zoidberg and runs away whimpering.
Smitty: That’s it punk! Your going down! You just made my best friend run away!

(URL looks hurt)

(Act Break)

(As Zoidberg is put in the back of a police van we go down into the sewers, again, and we see, all the weapons the proffessor flushed landing near the mutants town center where they are still plotting to overthrow society. The mutants see the weapons and walk towards the as they are washed up by their feet, the mutants begin to laugh maniacally, the leg mutant takes a little longer to start laughing after they've done laughing)

Leg Mutant: I don't get it.

((Another act break opportunity> ))

(The mutants are cocking there guns and looking at the weapons, in the background we see Leg Mutant step on a mine and when it explodes the old blackness trick (the cartoony thing- you know what I mean)

Leelas Mom: No you can't go up there 
Morris: We won't let you kill our little girl!
3-armed Mutant: We're not going to kill them. We're simply going to drive them into the sewers so they live with this fowl stench and we live with the sun.
Leelas Mom: But we promised she would have the life of a human on Earth!
Duayne: And the life of a human right now is to be pushed into the sewers its time for us to take the land above!
Morris: They've got us there.
 (The mutants shove Morris and Leelas Mom out the way of a ladder they were standing in front of and start climbing it with their weapons. They emerge in Zoidbergs cell from his toilet)
(Duayne ((the first mutant out of Zoidys toilet)) and Zoidberg faces are right next to each other and as they look at each other they both scream horribly)

(More mutants come out of Zoidbergs toilet.)

Zoidberg: You toilet people came to rescue me?

Leg Mutant: No get in the sewer!

Zoidberg: Disappointed sigh*

(Black screen from that scene to the People in the PlanEx building looking out the window at a scene of carnage. Mutants are running around blowing things up and throwing people down drains.)

Proffessor: Oh I knew this was going to happen! Armageddon was either going to be those damned magic teddy people or sewer mutants.

(Everyone except Amy look at Farnsworth as if hes deranged.)

Amy: Hey Leela- isn't that you parents?

(Amy points at Leelas parents- Morris has a small gun that he’s shooting cars with a small gun and Leelas Mom is looking around worried.)

Leela: Hey yeah it is!

(Leela runs outside and even as shes shouting “Hey” she is shot and starts to get dragged by mutants.)

Fry: They’re not taking her! Not before I’ve even had a shot at blowing my chances!

(The remaining plan ex crew run outside and are all tranqued and collapse. We scroll back up to the window where we see Scruffy.)

Scruffy: Your not taking Scruffy alive!

(A grenade is thrown and lands behing Scruffy scruffy shrugs and jumps onto a car roof.)

Any comments and suggestions?
Also think about the fame using your voice could bring you.     smile

Sounds like a great episode all I think you should add to it is a cameo by Tiny Tim, Leela and Fry acting all "coupleish", The Hypno-Toad and Nibbler should have something to do with the plot and let's also see Bender having to be rebooted which will pull everyone together, and oh yeah have Amy be almost naked in it.

  laff... oh about the story. If the mutants go up to the surface and trap all humans to the sewers, could Zapp plan an escape plan, (of course with some good Zapp and Kif jokes).
Its a stupid plan but everybody likes it exept Leela, so she founds out a own plan.
Zapp, Kif, Fry, Bender and Zoidy goes up to the surface some how, and the plan dont work at all so they are trapped under a gaint sun mirror and are about to die when Leela shows up some way... What!? Its only an idea...

That's a clool idea, and yeah, maybe Zapp could take control and try to get everyone to the suface. His plans would be totally flawed of course, and way to stupid and dangerous. Perhaps he could try to force Kif through a tight pipe which he can't fit through himself or something. And after plenty if sighing from Kif, and everyone else thinking it's stupid, then Leela's parents speak out saying that they know the way. These are just ideas and stuff  smile

EDIT: I just added more to the script ^. If we get our first episode off the ground before futaramaseasons I can blow a raspberry at them!   tongue  Of course there's may well be good.

I do a lot more voices than these and have a little experience in voice overs for actual projects (not much mind u)

It might take a while, but for every word that is in the script, you could find it in an episode and put it in your episode. Just a suggestion though. I was wondering, how are you going to do the animation?

finding the words from the eps really wouldn't work though. it would sound robotic and chopped up instead of fluid and conversational. Cause every line they say they say with a different inflection depending on their moods or the situation.

i think every one has great idea, but dont overdo it and try to put every cliche'ed futurama bit into it, the zapp idea would be good also with hermes getting rid of the drugs, you should change it to something other than drugs, cause in most hermes episode, you'll think he means drugs but in the end its not which makes it more funny eg, "im gonna go home and relax the jamacan way, a glass of milk and a good nights sleep", i think its great of you to try if you ever need help let me know id love to see this finished

I think we're just going to stay with subtitles, there voices require a huge amount of talent, and I think PEELs talent lies in drawing and writing,  ah well. If a couple of Futurama episodes go down well we're gonna move on to our own show, and then we could get some people to do voices.

Again thank you for the feedback. I don't know if Zapp would be inthe sewers though... hes usually on a spaceship way up in the sky.

Venus thank you for telling me her name! I owe you big time, I would personally love to hear Anarchists feedback for this, be it constructive or destructive, I tried to get onto futuramaseasons but my crappy computer kept on crapping out on me.

Another awesome addition to the script, it's all very well balanced, and feels just like a real episode  smile

Just a little thought. Later on in the episde, when the humans escape from the sewers, perhaps they could use the sewer lids as shields from the guns which the Sewer mutants above would have...
