This may have been asked before in the past, but ... every once in a while I have noticed an auction on Ebay for a Season 1 promo cd. Does anyone happen to specifically know what's on this cd (the auctions never have a track listing)?

no, I don't know.  Maybe it's the first 4 episodes.

Maybe it's one of the (100% official) Season 1 VCD's. They only contain 1/3 of the 1ACV-episodes each and, as far as I know, no extra features.

It wouldn't be the first time an eBay auction was mislabelled.

I don't think so ... it's an audio cd. I wish I could link to the auction, but the last one I saw just ended yesterday. It has a picture of Fry, Leela and Bender on the cover flying a scooter through space. The description only mentioned that it was sent out to advertise the first season of the show and that it contains the theme and audio bites, but nothing more specific than that. Just thought maybe someone here would know exactly what's on it.

...um, you have to type the URL of the picture in the code for it to work, if I'm not mistaken.

Here are links to some ended auctions:

As Futufan said, the CD contains sound clips (fifty in all, apparently) from the first season.  There might not be a track listing on it since there are so many clips.

Yeah, cool.
I don't really think these are official CD's.
This Guy probably downloaded sound clips from CGEF and burned them on CD for an eBay - auction.
Whereelse can you get 50 sound clips of Futurama for free. Or he captured the himself, but I don't think he has done this.

Be careful with hotlinking to SomethingAwful.com, they don't appreciate it. Most of the times they replace the picture with something rather nasty, and by nasty I mean vomit-inducing.

Yeah, that's the one. So I guess none of the auction's winners frequent this site. The mystery of the CD's track listing lives on ...

Speaking of CDs.

I would love if there had been a CD of Futurama music.

Christopher Tyng's theme/incidental music and assorted songs from the show, ie like The Simpsons' Songs In The Key Of Springfield and Go Simpsonic!

Would be nice to hear the music without dialogue and sound effects getting in the way.

This is indeed a promotional piece that is 'official'. They are given to radio stations and such for their voice over promo commercials. This CD has the full length version of the opening theme music and about 50 sound bytes from the first season of the show. There have been others released that I know of that are not Futurama specific and instead have a sampling of about 4 or 5 different Fox shows such as Malcom in the Middle, King of the Hill, Simpsons and Futurama.
I am pretty sure there is a track listing and if interested I can dig out my CD and list them all for you. I must be slipping though as I didn't see either one of these auctions come up as I probably would have bid on one of them.

That sounds very interesting...  I have been noticing a lot of futurama sounds on my local radio station.

I actually always wondered how the radio stations to just randomly use copyrighted clips like that (don't think I've heard any Futurama ones, but I've heard lots of random Simpsons ones for instance).  Interesting.

Ask and ye shall recieve. The disc contains 50 sound clips ranging anywhere from 3 to 15 seconds. The first two clips are main title music. I won't list the exact title of each track as there really aren't any titles. In the sleeve they list who said it and then what the quote is. I will only list part of the quote as I think most people can figure out the whole thing.
