Okay ... here you go -- I've been dying to tell you guys about the Season 4 DVD menus and I'm finally going to give in. ... but only a little at at time.

First, the Main Menu animations ...

All of the Main Menu animations for Season 4 begin with the point of view of a character checking out the Planet Express building through a pair of binoculars (Disc 1's voyeur is Bender, Disc 2's is Mom, Disc 3's is Zapp and Disc 4's is Zoidberg). First the voyeur zooms into a window of the building to see a funny character moment, then they pan over to another window (or, in the case of one of the discs, the patio area). The voyeuristic character then zooms in, "through" the window and into the room where the Main Menu exists. All during this beginning animation, we hear the voyeur character making humorous comments about what/who they see in the windows (this is where the specially recorded dialogue comes in). Disc 1's Main Menu is in the Planet Express Employee Lounge, Disc 2 is in the Professor's Lab, Disc 3 is the Patio Area, Disc 4 is the Kitchen. The Main Menu Loops in these areas also feature character voices and animations. Disc 1 involves several characters, Disc 2 involves the Professor, Disc 3 involves Leela (though Zapp continues to talk on this one) and Disc 4 involves Bender.

Okay ... that's it for now ... stay tuned for more!

Well I, for one, cannot wait to see these! Especially Zapp's comments on Leela, which I suspect are hillarious.  smile

Sounds damn cool. David X Cohen (I think) at one point said that they tried to make each DVD set better, since they understood this was likely to be Futurama's final legacy, and they wanted it to be a glorius legacy. (hyperbole mine)

Sounds like they did exactly that.

Wow! I thought the box art absolutely ruled, but the menus sound even better! Thanx heaps for the info, futufan, it's much appreciated. I couldn't wait before, but now I can't wait even more for this final set to be released!  smile

Also, just wondering, do you know anything about the trailer for the Futurama Season 4 DVD set yet, futufan? We know it's been made, just wondering if you've happened to see it yet?  smile

futufan - just to clarify, are you saying that Leela will have some new dialog as well, or is it just Zapp commenting on her.  I know Katey Sagal has not done any commentaries, but it would be nice to know that she came back to do a little something new for the last DVD set.  I expected Billy, Tress and John to do the extra character lines, but it would be great to hear some new Katey on the farewell set, if only in charater.

God - that last Devil's Hands commentary will be so depressing when Matt, David, John and the rest (I assume) say goodbye and thanks to the fans...

I hope that the menu animations in the sub-menus aren't 3 seconds long and then looped like last time, which made it a pain to navigate.

Yup ... there's a total of 8 different combinations of lines during the intro animation and then 8 different combinations of lines during the main menu loop animation and they're all completely random.

Sorry ... no Katey -- there never has been nor ever will be any specially recorded dialogue from her for the DVDs whether it be for the menus or as a commentary.

That was completely unitentional ... they were supposed to be 10 second loops but somewhere in the authoring process they were shortened (for what reason I'm not sure ... perhaps disc space?) Regardless, I was as annoyed as you when I saw (and heard) the 3 second loops in the final product. It's no consolation to the Region 2 folks, but hopefully that problem can be remedied in the Region 1 edition.

Yeah, gotta get as many posts in as I can before, as someone else here once said, I become obsolete after all the DVD sets are out.  smile Actually, I was trying to answer everyone's questions and kept finding new ones as I scrolled through.

More spoilers to come ...

The Scene Selections appear on the people-mover tubes in the city ... each disc takes place in a different location in the city.

Bah, the only way I can believe you is if you mail me a copy of the DVD...  wink

Seriously though, sounds very cool. I've still yet to see Season 2 and 3's DVD's, but I know for a fact that Season 1's menu's were as boring as fuck (no offence). Sounds great that the final season of Futurama will be going out with a bang on DVD, I'll get it for sure!

Season 4 Menu Spoiler of the Week ...

The Special Features screens are centered around the Employee locker area. Disc 1's is Fry's, Disc 2's is Leela's, Disc 3's is Zoidberg's and Disc 4 is (sort of) Bender's.

Yeah, technically you're correct. But also, technically it's still a few days over 4 weeks...

Noooo! I'll have to download the trailer for Season 4 now, since it isn't on the DVD set.

That "New character artwork" looks interesting. Wonder if it's for the new season 4 characters, or characters that were never included in the series before it ended....

It's weird seeing those menu scenes when the episodes were only on a couple of months ago.

Good find, though.  big grin

There's still a few screens that weren't shown at that link ...

REMAINING MENU SCREENS SPOILERS ...

The Language Selection screens are based on the Telescreen seen in "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch". Each disc features an incoming call to and from a different set of characters.

The 3D Models screen takes place on the Robot Upgrade conveyor belt seen in the episode "Obsoletely Fabulous".

The How to Draw Professor screens take place on the Professor's cloning machine seen in "Jurassic Bark".

The How to Draw Bender screens are on blueprints.

The Character Pencil Tests menu takes place in a classroom with Matt Groening's head in a jar instructing.

I think that about covers it all.
