Thanks for the appreciation guys.
Yeah, this is truly awesome that you'd post the details Box Incorporated. How are the deleted scenes? Are any of the scenes mentioned in these commentaries present?
They were mostly just extra lines and scenes that would've been nice to have had in the episode, with a few really interesting one's here and there. Here's the most notable ones:
*The scene in T: The Terrestrial with Hermes acting like an Omicronian (Hrrr) and asking Zapp to board Omicron Persei 8. (really funny scene).
*In Leela and the Genestalk, when the trio escapes the giant, they go into a giant mouse hole where they meet 2 mutated humanish rats, before going into a sewer hole inside. Also, the giant rips off one of Leela's big tentacles, which she shrugs off.
*The original Shazaam scene from the Game of Tones animatic posted a few months ago was put in the deleted scenes, which was fully colored and animated.
*The Zoidberg giving nice smelling things to Mary Ann parts of Stench and Stenchibility's montage was originally just them going on random dates (kiss in the middle of traffic, have a date on the beach and Zoidberg is bounced on a whales nose). The tap dancing parts remained the same.
*Like Much Ado already said, Zoidberg had his arm cut off. Apparently in the original script, you could actually leave the time shelter while the button was being pressed without being shredded like human coleslaw, just as long as you actually go back into the shelter, so he put his arm out to get the dollar Farnsworth threw and had it shredded off him.
*The original scene with the crew building a tunnel out of time mud to the Vampire State building had them get out of the shelter, build a mud tunnel for a few seconds, then rush back in.
And now, the bonus animator commentary for Game of Tones.
*70-80 designers for the show at Rough Draft, 100s more artist at Korea.
*Has 6 directors who work in a rotation, sometimes changed for persons specialties.
*1999 made more duller in color than the future, has a lot of snow globes put into Fry’s apartment.
Chris Gram and Roy Comacho storyboarded this.
*Decided to fix up Fry’s house since it always bothered them that it looked uninhabitable. Were always asked by the writers to make it look worse and worse in each appearance.
*Scene with everyone wearing diapers not in written script.
*Like Much Ado said, Digby originally had a mustache, first a goatee, then a pencil mustache.
