  "Futurama" (1999)
A show as good as The Simpson's was is ripe for theft and Futurama, the brainchild of Matt Groening, borrows well from the former show.
Bender is the Homer Simpson, devoid of responsibility, yet, as this lack of responsibility is placed in a robot, we do not have to feel anger at his wayward ways.
Groening, clearly by taking the best writers from the Simpson's with him when he jumped ship, has done the impossible and found an animated series that is superior to the unsurpassable Simpson's.

  Futurama - Playstation 2 Reviews: The Armchair Empire
That is only a problem because, clearly, Futurama the game is only really going to appeal to fans of the show.
Futurama follows the adventures of the four central characters of the television show, time traveling delivery boy Fry, one-eyed pilot Leela, criminal robot Bender, and kooky Dr. Zoidberg.
If it weren’t for the wonderful use of the Futurama setting, the game would be hard to stand—about on par with the dozens of crappy Disney platformers that have been released over the years.

 BACK TO THE 'FUTURAMA' By DON KAPLAN - New York Post Online Edition: Entertainment   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The tale of "Futurama's" dramatic revival roughly follows that same path that "Family Guy" did.
The show stars voice-over megastar Billy West (whose elastic vocal chords have provided the voices for nearly 120 different cartoons) as Philip J. Fry, a bumbling slacker from the 20th century who is accidentally cryogenically frozen in 1999 and wakes up 1,000 years later.
On Fox, "Futurama" never developed the same buzz or following of its sister show, "The Simpsons," but has since become one of the biggest shows on Adult Swim.

 Amazon.ca: Futurama: Volume 1: DVD   (Site not responding. Last check: )
While not as universally popular as The Simpsons, Futurama is equally hip and hilarious, thanks to its zippy lateral-thinking contemporary pop cultural references, celebrity appearances (Pamela Anderson and Leonard Nimoy are among a number of guest stars to appear as disembodied heads in jars), and Bender, a distinctly Homer Simpson-esque robot.
Futurama had too much hype in the beginning to deal with an on and off season, and unfortunately that's just what happened.
Futurama was the name of the famous General Motors exhibit at the 1939 New York World's Fair that depicted a futuristic landscape.

 Locus Online: Lucius Cook reviews Futurama on DVD
But while Futurama would stand apart on the strength of its visuals alone, what's truly unique about the series is the writers' dedication to exploring ideas, rather than simply using SF elements as a pretext for standard action-adventure stories redressed in genre stage decoration.
Where Futurama succeeds as SF is the way the writers develop and explore their story ideas in a self-consistent and intelligent manner.
Skeptics and holdouts owe it to themselves to check it out: Futurama was clearly conceived by people who had SF literature in their hearts and minds, and it deserves to find a place in the hearts and minds of fans who'll get all the jokes.

The studio is in early discussions to put "Futurama" back in production and create a limited number of episodes of the Emmy Award-winning skein -- although it's too soon to tell where those segs might end up.
"Futurama" remains popular enough that Comedy Central even stole away off-net rights to the show's repeats late last year; it will switch to the laffer cabler in 2008.
Meanwhile, even after the cancellation new "Futurama" stories have continued to be churned out via the "Futurama" comicbook, published by Groening's Bongo Comics imprint.

 Welcome To The Retro Future
At the end of the ride, when the awestruck visitors were deposited in a GM showroom and left to contemplate the meaning of it all, they were handed a souvenir button that read: "I have seen the future." Few disagreed.
Futurama was also a spectacularly-effective piece of propaganda for GM.
Not surprisingly, many of the ideas were amusingly off the mark: floating airports which adjusted in water to shift to the changing wind conditions; highways with curved sides which allowed vehicles to travel at different speeds (four lanes at 50 m.p.h, two lanes at 75 m.p.h, and two lanes at 100 m.p.h.).

 Futurama Easter Egg : Futurama
"Futurama" was the name of a General Electric display at the world's fair in the 40's (check me on that, I may be wrong about the date) that showed a panorama of the future according to GE, complete with big sweeping buildings and flying cars (think 40's sci-fi movies).
Futurama is also the title of an excellent album by the British band Be Bop Deluxe.
The style of architecture in the fair, and on the TV show, bears a strong resemblence to the 1925 silent classic "Metropolis," directed by Fritz Lang, which, incidentally, Be Bop Deluxe projected on video screens during their performances (see their "Live in the Air Age" release).

She also writes on her Live Journal that the details are still being hammered out, but needless to say, this is a great example of a relatively unknown artist getting some decent exposure through this crazy thing called the Web.
Here's what the listing says the plot is going to be: "Planet Express sees a hostile takeover and Bender falls into the hands of criminals where he is used to fulfill their schemes." The movie is in post-production, with voice recording completed.
But, if this is correct, it'll be a nice way for fans to get their Futurama fix before the show starts new episodes on Comedy Central in 2008.

 Salon Entertainment | Joyce Millman On Television: That 31st century show
This is Matt Groening's "Futurama," his long-awaited follow-up to "The Simpsons," and it's totally, amazingly perfect.
The "Futurama" pilot opens on Dec. 31, 1999, in New York City, where a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy named Fry (his overbite and Ping-Pong ball eyes unmistakably mark him as a Groening creation) is having a really sucky end of the millennium.
With "Futurama," it's going to be a kick following them to infinity and beyond.
