If you could chose what was featured as a "special feature" on the future DVDs of Futurama, what would you pick?

I'd personally love to see stills of all of the goofy products (Slurm, Lightspeed Briefs, Bachelor Chow, Glagnar's Human Rinds, Hoooters, etc., etc., etc.) and ads that have been used in all of the seasons -- they're usually just used as throwaway, backround jokes that go by in a blink. I'm sure the writers put a lot of thought into some of them and I'd love to see them all together in a collection.

Director's Commentaries!
Perhaps the deleted scenes that I've heard so much about.
Groening and Cohen interviews!

A release in the US!! (MOST IMPORTANT)

Stop whining and get a region free machine or an old drive.  I posted a short explanation of how to get around regional encoding here.

I think it's safe to say that the commentaries and deleted scenes are a given since they were on the R2 DVDs (why would they leave things like that out on the R1s since they're so popular?) ... any other things that aren't on the R2s?

The behind the scenes documentary is pretty lame.

I'd like to see (hear?) Katey Sagal do a commentary.

    I would also like Katey to do a commentary. It would be great if she did it for "I Second That Emotion", "A Bicyclops Built For Two", "Leela's Homeplanet" or "AOI I".

    From what I've heard it's pretty unlikely though.

    Other than that:
    More (and better!) behind-the-scenes documentaries.
    Interviews with the voice-cast and their opinion on the characters they do.
    Maybe a "How-to-draw-xxx" tutorial.
    Matt and David's official biografies of the main characters.
    More story-board versions of episodes, with David Cohen's commentaries (like the SP3K one of the season 1 set, that was brilliant).
    More animatics (also like the SP3K one on the season 1 set, slghtly less brilliant than the storyboard thing, but still great)

    And so much more...

I actually like the animatics better than the storyboard. With the animatics there are voice overs and rough voice overs for other things that are interesting to hear as well as being able to see deleted and/or revised scenes. I would like to see more of those.
More behind the scenes stuff would be great as well. Maybe a featurette on the voice over process where we get to see some of the actors going through the script or a table read. The process of script writing would be cool too.
More on the computer generated imagery used in Futurama would be fun as well. An image gallery of original sketches and drawings of more of the characters and not just the main characters.

In the last one the commentaaries were the best, so maybe this time it will be the same.
