Stop wondering what Futurama's intro would look like if it were rendered in 3D and prettied up ten quadrillion percent: it's here. Well, part of it is anyway, care of Russian animator Alexey Zakharov. He took the spaceship intro to Futurama, references to "Mom's Old-Fashioned Robot Oil" and all, a...

Weird fact: Did you know that today is St. Nicholas Day? 'Tis true! Nicholas, the Greek bishop who's been the inspiration for Santa Claus due to his penchant for gift-giving, got his very own holiday that nobody really celebrates. Except us!

The kids at the Robots podcast have released a pretty enjoyable interview with Futurama executive producer and head writer David X. Cohen, and we'd be remiss if we didn't make sure you had a chance to check it out. Are you ready for some frank discussion of the role of robots on television, Cohen's ...

If you saw Thursday night's new episode of Matt Groening's Futurama on Comedy Central (and let's take a moment to relish those beautiful words, 'new episode of Futurama' -- mmm, yes), you got an earful of biting satire focused on the enthusiasm of a certain company's customers and their appetite ...

Those of you familiar with Matt Groening outside of his Simpsons and Futurama endeavors likely raised an eyebrow after reading the title to this post.

Futurama fans (and Bender freaks in particular) may need to be sitting down when viewing this one, as we're fairly certain you'll be at least somewhat blown away by what lies ahead. On a whimsical request from a friend, a pioneering lad set out to not only create a lifelike rendition of Bender, bu...
