I didn't really like the Simpsons/Futurama crossover stories too much.  It seemed it was more 'Simpsons' than 'Futurama'. 

I would like to see a crossover of the Futurama comic with the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book.  I could just see it now:

Fry:  See, Leela?  Those are the Freedom Fighters!  They all hide out here in Knothole!

Leela:  They're all so adorable and cute!  Awww!

Bender:  Cute, eh?  I don't know about you, but this French guy is pissin' me off!

Antoine (to Bender):  Parla vous Francis?

Bender (yelling):  CRAM IT, FRENCHIE!!!!

Futurama/South Park crossover would be cool, too!  I could see Cartman and Bender paraphrase each other.

nye, threads belong to no one.

Also crossovers suck, no matter what you are crossing over. The closest thing to a good crossover is AVP, and even that is questionable!

This is about comic crossovers Grim. But you're absolutely right about Nye. And the fact that crossovers suck.

Anyway I thought that the Simpson/Futurama was heavy on the Simpsons. I mean I haven't read the 1st but the 2nd one was weird. Not the greatest. I don't know what kind of crossover I'd like to see but I know it would either be really cool or it'd suck monkey balls.

The Futurama/Simpsons Crossovers ruled, they had a good balance between shows and I don't think anybody could have expected much more than we got. Way above average, the last issue being just average but that's by no means bad...

Well, Jivefunk, everyone is free to their own opinions.  Here's some crossovers I would like to see in the comics, or even in fanfics:

Futurama/South Park
Futurama/King of the Hill
Futurama/Sonic the Hedgehog
Futurama/American Dad (Sorry, I like this show!)

Futurama/Kim Possible

That's the perfect crossover.  Fry/Leela meeting Kim/Ron.  Drakken and Bender meeting would be classic.

There should be a futurama/South Park crossover where Stan, Kyle, and Kenny are so pissed off with Cartman that they have him cryogenically frozen, naturally he would be unfrozen in New New York

What exactly is the connection between Futurama and Kim Possible?  The only one I can see is the same voice artists.  Anything else I don't know about?

Here's something that may also help.

Okay, here is why I like the show Kim Possible:

1. Good Writers- 
Co-Creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley have written some of the episodes on the show.  They both were once writers of two popular cartoons from the 1980's: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and The Real Ghostbusters.  The show has a similar type of humor as Matt Groening, only more PG-ish and has less Social Commentary.  Kim Possible is by far the best show Disney has done in recent years.

2. Good Voice Actors- 
Kim Possible has attracted many voice actors.  John DiMaggio,  Lauren Tom, Dan Castellaneta,  Maurice LaMarche and Ricardo Montalban has made guest appearances.

Nancy Cartwright who does the voice of Bart Simpson does the voice of Rufus.

John DiMaggio plays the voice of both Dr. Draken and Motor Ed, seriously.  Two popular villains of Kim Possible.

Lauren Tom and Dan Castellaneta were in the same episode.  Dan played one of Draken's goons, and Lauren Tom played a character called Yoshiko

Yoshiko: I am Yoshiko, translator for Nakasumi-san.
(Ron slicks his hair back)
Ron: Y'know, I'm looking for a lucky someone to go to a dance with me...
(Yoshiko whispers to Nakasumi)
(Gong sounds)
(Nakasumi mutters back)
Yoshiko: Uhhh... Nakasumi-san says he's very flattered, but given the current crisis, he feels it would be... inappropriate... to go to the dance.
Ron: No! Ew, no! I meant--

Maurice LaMarche and Phil LaMarr were in the same episode.  Maurice played a scientist, Professor Acari, and Phil played a detention student named Vinne.  He also did another character in another.

Kim: Why would you build a nano sized explosive?
Professor Acari: I have a lot of time on my hands.  (And he's not a villain.)

Kim: Jr., Vinney, Big Mike, *what* are you staring at?
Jr.: Cheerleader, you've got a zit.
Vinney: Cheerleaders don't get zits.
Jr.: Oh, than maybe it's a tiny, explosive device.


Kim: Looks bad. He's got some kind of ray-thingy!
Ron: What kind of ray-thingy?
Drakken (shouting from the air): Gravatomic!

Vinnie: Aw, man! That's gravatomic!


With the exception of John DiMaggio, all these voice actors had small parts for Kim Possible.  However, I think that shows how much the loved doing the show that they were willing to do these small roles.

3. Futurama similarities-
DiMaggio's Draken and Motor Ed both sound very much like Bender.  DiMaggio's also done minor characters using his Sal voice.  Brings back memories. 

Kim and Ron are Fry and Leela as teenagers.  If you notice the similaries, it is very haunting.  Ron comes up with crazy ideas as Fry.  Kim saves Ron many times as Leela saves Fry.  Of course Ron saves Kim once and a while as does Fry saves Leela.  And just recently, fans are going wild to learn that there may be a love interest between Kim and Ron, just like how us Futurama fans went crazy to see Fry and Leela finally get together.  And like Futurama it faces early cancellation, but only due to a dumb policy Disney has for their shows.

4. Kim Possible is not the typical spy girl cartoon-
Unlike, Totally Spies and those other cartoon female spy shows, Kim does not fit that stereotype.  She doesn't stop to put on make-up before saving the world or do other things that those other cartoon female spies do.  She has a Leela-like quality.  I've read reviews of Kim Possible being a cartoon verison of Alias.  So, you can't put Kim Possible on the same list with Totally Spies and Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action.

If you didn't like the crossovers that's totally cool. We gave it our best shot though and it wasn't a lazy money grab like some comic crossovers seem to be.
My fav crossover has to be the first Superman Vs. Spider-Man, though there's something to be said for the Charlie's Angels episode that crossover over with the Love Boat.

Ok I don't know what happened to this book but unfortunately it got taken off amazon.com and hasn't been listed for a long time. I have just noticed it on amazon.co.uk though. It has one of the covers off the crossovers and it says it's out on January the 2nd 2007. I'm a bit doubtful though because why would you release a book after Xmas in the January sales?...

Anyway here's the link. If anyone cen shed anymore light on this it would be appreciated... http://www.amazon.co.u k/Simpsons-Futurama-Infinitely-Crossover-Crisis/dp/0007228228/sr=1-1/qid=1160219816/ref=sr_1_1/202-9844690-0869449?ie=UTF8&s=books

Hellboy would be a good comicbook to crossover with Futurama.

Heh... well not really - they go together like bacon and ice cream, and I still have bad memories of the time I pitched 'Triple Bacon Swirl' flavour at the ice cream company I used to work at. The bastards on the board of directors laughed me out of the room. Well I'll show them...

Anyhow, Hellboy is cool, and he smokes cigars like Bender.

And they were also doing the ten page "Chili Chili Bang Bang" story that Fry references in the second crossover, and putting it as an exclusive (ie: the story will only ever be available ONLY in that crossover TPB)

It will be a nice package if it ever comes out. My only guess for them pulling it was perhaps incase they were to make some more. The last issue in the series is pretty open ended for a sequel. It wouldn't explain why it is listed on Amazon.co.uk but that date leads me to believe it is just a random date and not when it will actually come out. Prove me wrong Amazon, prove me wrong!...

I did an interview with Ian Boothby for my site (it is no longer on there, though), and one of my questions actually was if there was any plans for a third crossover series, to which he replied:

"Yes. No. Who wants to know?"

It would never happen. Someone wrote to Bongo a few years ago asking if they'd ever do a crossover with other people's creations, and they gave the person who wrote the letter a big fat "NO".

This is interesting! I actually forgot all about this until I recieved an email from Amazon the other day informing me that it was out snoon and as a customer who has bought the other Futurama books I may be interested...

Unbelievably the release date of January the 2nd 2007 stuck! Actually before pre-ordering I was still doubtful so I waited until yesterday to check the status before posting about it on here. Yesterday it had conflicting information saying that it was released on the 2nd and it was available for pre-order, which doesn't make sense as it was the 2nd. I have just checked again today and it says there's a 10-14 day wait, quite why I don't know but I guess that means it's been released! I have just bought myself a copy, hopefully I will recieve it within that time frame (although I won't bet on it... At some time anyway...)

This is just a heads up for everyone here who wants to buy this book, you finally can do now!... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Simpsons-Futurama-Infinitely-Secret-Crossover/dp/0007228228/sr=1-3/qid=1167848091/ref=sr_1_3/026-6632674-2323625?ie=UTF8&s=books

Strangely it still isn't even listed on the American Amazon and hasn't been ever since it got taken off there. Very strange...

I'd love to see Sonic/Futurama crossovers, but it's from two different companies...not that it'd stop anybody... I myself haven't seen the crossover TPBs in forever, and I only saw it online. My bookstores suck. Anyways, I'd love to see more Futurama TPBs, and I'll certainly buy them.

The Sonic comic book is from Archie.  The Futurama one is from Bongo.  What kind of adventures would you like to see if a Sonic/Futurama crossover was possible?

I dunno. Something to do with your posting. That's be hilarious. It could be a plot to stop mom from messing up Mobius, and Eggman joins her, or the other way around. Anyways, they'd have to save their own worlds with their own unique powers ,in Fry's case his "special" brain and use teamwork to get there.
