Futurama Monopoly board

According to the much-loved cartoon Futurama, a lot has changed in the year 3000, but at least one thing remains the same: greed is still alive and well! And you can take 80s Guy’s financial advice to heart when you pick up the Futurama edition of Monopoly, which comes out in November. Everything has been given a Futurama makeover, including the railroads (now modes of travel like the Travel Tube and Robot Santa’s Sleigh) and locations (own New New York and Robot Hell, among others). Even the player pieces are now show staples like Leela’s Boot, the Planet Express Ship, and Fry’s Dog (nooooo!). Just don’t be surprised when invaders from Omicron Persei VI invade your board and enslave you. I don’t think that’s actually part of the game, but then again, this is Futurama. Read more…



Comedy Central Gives Us the Gift of More Futurama

Posted by Michael Sacco on Jul 24, 2011 in Animation, Television


Futurama is definitely a rare breed of television show, in that it survived cancellation and returned to the airwaves as a great success. What makes it even more amazing, of course, is that it had been canceled for seven years. After its wildly popular comeback season, Fox granted the show another year on the air, and as of right now, interest in the show shows no sign of petering off. In fact, Fox announced at San Diego Comic-Con today that Futurama was renewed for not one, but two more seasons. It’s heartening to know that in an age of brilliant shows canceled before their time, a show like Futurama can succeed and even thrive. Read more…

Futurama Nibbler Plush at Comic Con

Sadly Futurama fanboys (and fangurls) unlucky enough to not be at Comic Con will miss out on an opportunity to take home the plus version of Nibbler in Shiny Jumpsuit. Although the good news for us stay at home fans that this is the first item in an entire line of Futurama plush dolls which I hope are equally as cute. Read more…

As a Futurama and anime fanboy I just loved this fan illustration! The illustration is from the French website bouletcorp.com.

Futurama Action Figures: If You’re Not Completely Satisfied, I Hate You

Futurama Action Figures: Fry and Bender

It’s amazing to me to think that Futurama has been around for over ten years at this point (it went on the air in 1999). While I’ve always admired The Simpsons there’s something about the sci fi theme of Futurama that makes it closer to my fanboy heart. To celebrate the series there are three sets of Futurama Action Figures: Fry and Bender (shown above), Farnsworth and Hermes (shown below) and Leela and Zapp Brannigan (whom I wanted to see the most of all but couldn’t find an image of).

Back to the Futurama?

Futurama 'Future Is Today' Tin Sign

When Futurama first came out in (over 9 years ago!) I have to admit I had my doubts about the show — but it won me over in re-runs on Cartoon Network (maybe it was the voice over work by Katey Sagal?). Well now it seems that fans of the show might have more of the year 3000 to look ahead to:

A Future For Futurama?

“David X. Cohen, co-creator and executive producer of Futurama, told SCI FI Wire that work is nearly done on the fourth and final (for now) made-for-DVD movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder, and added that he’s hopeful the show might still return as a weekly series, a feature film or another DVD film.”

Side note: The clever tin sign above is on sale at bigbadtoystore.com.
