Good news everyone, Amazon is now listing the Futurama 2009 Calendar for pre-order. No picture yet, but it does mean they are continuing with them which is always a good thing!...

I'm getting that when it comes out in August!  Plus, the calendar would be a cool way to promote the Futurama DVD movie coming that year!

Interesting. Can't wait to see the pictures. Maybe they'll explain why everybody's crying except Bender.

Bender seems to be pointing an accusing finger, although one of his lower digits looks like it melted or is leaking. Maybe Fry & Leela left him in the shower too long or something...

Interesting cover, I wonder if the artwork inside will be of a similar comic-book style. That would be pretty clool  cool...

mind the bump

Got my Futurama 2009 Calendar in the mail.

The front cover's different from the one they put out on the internet some time back, but I guess that's the toll of time or there may be different covers in different countries.


The new title, "Art Calendar" seemed vague, I thought it was going to be just random art without a common theme like they've done several times before, but the theme of the calendar is Futurama art parodies of famous paintings.

Here's the lineup of month images:


Personally, I liked the movie parody theme of last year better. I was skeptic at the art theme, but the art team did a great job and drew away my skepticism. Better than the "random art" calendars, but IMO the movie and comic book cover calendars were the best. Still, beats the hell out of the 2009 Simpsons calendar.

It's a pity I haven't yet seen this calendar in stores. I like January, March, June and September's graphics a bit more than the others, but they're all really cool.

Hey KoolMoeDee

I took the liberty to use your photo of the calendar and search the real piece of art parodied on each month. It was kinda hard to find some of the arts, but I think is ok now:

  • January: The Scream
  • February: Bond of Union
  • March: Lobster Trap and Fish Tail (difficult to figure out)
  • April: Whistler's Mother
  • May: Double Elvis
  • June: Mona Lisa
  • July: Watson and the Shark
  • August: American Gothic
  • September: Blam
  • October: The Three Ages of Woman (Fragment: Mother and Son)
  • November: Vitruvian Man
  • Dicember: The Birth of Venus

I posted the incomplete list at TFP but later, thanks to some people and more research, I found the ones I didn't know...

[edit]: The cover resembles the Drowning Girl by Roy Lichtenstein, but I'm not sure if there's another of his pop arts that is more accurate than that one.

I got my first Futurama Calendar yesterday and I'm going to have to send it back to Amazon.co.uk.   I was thrilled to bits when it arrived, only to take it around my friends and find out that it's got all the 2009 dates but it has last years pictures.  Needless to say I'm pretty peeved.

Order from Amazon.com in America, they've got the proper ones. That's where I got mine, I always get them there shipped over to England because they're the proper ones just like the american comics are the proper ones...

Once I get my refund from Amazon, I'll hit the American Site for that calendar, which looks very cool.

The australian 2009 calendar has a movie theme to it. I believe usa has already had that, am I right?

I like 09's calendar!  Those are some nice parodies of some pieces that I really like.  I thought October was supposed to be "The Kiss" but I suppose if you've seen one Klimt you've seen them all.

Does anyone have any other ideas on the cover?  It is definitely Lichtenstein-like, but I think I've seen something closer to this than "Drowning Girl".  It is going to drive me crazier if I can't find it.

I understood it! IN MY OPINION it is from Into The Wild Green Yonder.

It wouldn't surprise me if the cover has something to do with Green Yonder.  I think that in general, Futurama has always had a theme that involves Leela, Fry and Bender's relationship, although it is not usually Leela crying over Fry who's crying over Bender who is jealous of Fry and Leela.

However you are too late, T-bird.  I'm already crazier.  I believe the cover is based on Lichtenstein's Thinking of Him.  It's a minor point, but it was important to me to find it; I knew I had seen the tear and thought bubble in one of his works.  Now I've found it and can go on to other manic pursuits.

I actually wouldn't mind getting the Aussie calendar. I love the images in the 2008 calendar, but I never got around to buying it.
