I was wondering if the T-Shirts which were mentioned on the DVD commentary were ever released.

They had a picture of Bender and the slogan:

"Death To Humans!"

It's mentioned they were given to the production crew, be cool if they were released.

The shirts the production staff got were never released to the public (Sarge had a photo of his jersey up here though). I just had a news item on Tshirts on CGEF today though. The shirts seem to be pretty rare.

I would really have a T-shirt like the ones of Futurama production staff, with writings like these:

"Death to humans!" (and a picture of Bender)
"Bite my shiny metal ass" (a classic)
"God needs booze" (which may appear blaspheme to ordinary people, though)
"I will destroy Earth!" (Morbo)
more simply "Destroy Earth!" or "Pathetic humans, prepare to be destroyed!"  (same as above)

or maybe with the ads we've seen at the beginning of some episodes ("it's a runcha-buncha-cruncha human!" or "Drink Slurm" )

the official T-Shirts sold through the internet anyway have funny quotes too (like: "don't let the human race destroy the outer space" )

...or Thompsons Teeth.

There are limitless possibilities for T-Shirt merchandising.  Every episode has at least one T-Shirt line in it.

Why don't they do it?

I think those fantastic T-shirts we're talking about would be supposed to be only for hardcore fans of the serie. "Ordinary" people wouldn't go around wearing those, so won't buy them normally.

Wearing a t-shirt with writings like "Kill humans", "Destoy earth" and things like that could originate embarassing situations. In the audio commentary of Season 1 DVDs is reported one, involving the T-shirts made for the Futurama staff. One of the animators/directors/writers (? don't remember) was in a supermarket wearing the T-shirt of Bender saying "Kill all humans", then another customer arrived and started crying sentences like these: "How could you be proud of these words? My God this is awful! Humanity doens't deserve that! This is the most offensive T-shirt I ever seen" (he didn't really used these words -I don't remember them and haven't the time to search for this specific fact in the whole commentaries- but I tried to summarize their sense).

Btw I'm the kind of person who doesn't care what other people thinks of what you're wearing at all.

Hardly offesive, tho'.  One question would be:

Who would be the lesser person, the one wearing the t-shirt or the one offended by it.

I know what the answer is for me.

One that would sell well was a scene from "A Flight to Remember" when Leela said, "Take it off or I'll break it off."

Yeah, Clamps T-shirts would be great. He is such a psycho.

"There's no such thing as two" Would be a fun one too, with Bender looking really scared or menacing (either would fit the bill).

Edited to correct the inevitable spelling mistakes.

It could have like, that line on the front, with say a square of numbers in sort of, bright, almost lime green on the back in binary.

You know, it probably wouldn't be illegal to make and sel some of these t-shirts. For example, that idea requires no Futurama characters on it. And FOX probably wouldnt realise its Futurama related.

The obvious variant on the kill all humans one would be,
On the front: Hey baby, do you want to...
One tha back: ...Kill all humans?

I might have to look into getting one made up.

You could make an image on the computer and use that and press it onto a t-shirt. But that'd be bootlegging. And bootlegging is wrong, mmm'kay?

If you only do one for your own personal consumption, I hardly think you'll fall foul of many laws.

Also, I hardly think a quote would be copyrighted. You could just pretend you made it up yourself, and by some freakish coincidence your favourite show of which you have joined a message board of happened to use that very quote.

I was thinking while in the car today (it was a 7 hour trip) that I want a t-shirt that  is basically an ad. I'd even pay for it. It would say your PEEL username on the front, in nice large font, probably done in white, the t-shirt itself being the PEEL blue, a picture in the lower front of whatever futurama character you want from the waste up, and then www.peelified.com  on the back in a tasteful sized font. That would be cool.

I'll probably make a Futurama t-shirt later this month, I got these sweet things you use to iron on a shirt, and it works right with my printer.

It isn't bootlegging, it is just that you love the show so much you wanted to give it some free advertising on your previously plain T-shirt  laff

How about we just make some non-copyright violating ones with a Futurama note here so that people can print them on their own shirts?

For the back of a black T-shirt on Computer Science/other nerds backs (click for full size):

For the back of a white T-shirt:


I like Velours idea with the permanent marker too though

Meh, I wouldn't put the websites on the shirt unless someone made the shirt for me. If I actually had to do it, it would have exactly what I wanted.

So really, is the Planet Express logo copyrighted?

Front, over heart: www.peelified.com
Back: Big Planet Express logo, with "Employee Lounge" underneath in the PEEL logo font.  Like this, only vertically arranged:

There are places where you can make your own t-shirts. i'm sure you can find a local one near you and take a Futurama (printed, or something0 and turn it into a shirt.

Btw, welcome to PEEL, please read this  smile

Official shirts pop up every now and then on Ebay.  I just scored one last week.  You have to be cautious with Ebay as there are a lot of bootleg T-shirts.  You can even find  bootleg Futurama T-shirts with stolen fan art on them.  Don't pay a bootlegger for a shirt when you can just make one yourself.  Just sit and wait for the real ones to pop up.

It really is a shame that Futurama T-shirts and other things haven't been merchandised through Cartoon Network.  It seems like a perfect opportunity for them, but something's keeping them from it
