Hello, and have a Happy New Year 2009!
tfp wishes you a happy new year 2009!

This has been a nice 2008 over here, with the Futurama movies and news around them. I hope you liked the updates by the fans ar for the fans and the sections I've added to the site this year.
I apologize for the small periods of time when I didn't update TFP, when I forgot to add something a fan sent, or if I didn't answer an email you sent.
BTW, I've changed the news icons at the bottom of each news entry, it looks more harmonious with the rest of the new design (that I still has to name, mmm, I'll leave that for 2009).

The first one is Maria M Salazar with 4 new images.. 2 of them featuring Fry and Leela, and the others are a Mythology parody and A Clockwork's Orange parody. The other artist is Frygirl (Yume93), and I've added 5 or her images, featuring 2 Leela and Fry shippy pics, one of Leela and the Robot Devil (a present for MissusPatches), an image of Fry and Bender and other of Zapp and Fry (two 'not usual' situations that Sofi is used to draw).

Futurama Xmas Trilogy (Kwanzabot, Robot Santa and the Hanukkah Zombie) Wallpaper by JavieR (javoec) Hello again. Like I said before, I've not created a Xmas Layout this year, so instead, I've created a new Xmas Wallpaper for all of you to enjoy. This background features the 3 rulers of Xmas in the next millenium, they are called, the Futurama Xmas Trilogy.

From left to right: Kwanzabot, Robot Santa (also known as Santabot) and the Hanukkah Zombie. This wallpaper was based in the first Futurama movie, Bender's Big Score, so now you can have them in your desktop for this holidays. BTW, the preview over here is a crop of the original wall, so be sure to check it out.. and who knows, maybe I will come up with the widescreen and dualscreen version, but only if I've enough time.

You maybe noticed the change this morning, and well, it was time for a change.. the past layout (now in the Past Designs section) was great, but I wanted a fresh start in 2009 (fresh = green). Let's begin with the features I've added to this new design:
  • New slide show at the top of the site. You'll find there, the more important TFP news, info about the new movies and interesting news that need to be noticed in all the sections
  • You can choose, fixed or wide design... change it anytime with 2 small grey buttons, at the top left of the content box.
  • You can now show/hide the main sections of the site clicking over the headers (info, media, budds...) if you're short in space, or if you just don't wanna see something (the header will turn gray)
  • 3 Top Buttons for quick access to the futurama news, movies and rss sections of the site.
I've yet to change the design of the Share Item and Go to Article buttons of each news item, and I'll change the design of the guestbook very soon. If you want to suggest something about the design, colors, or if you notice any error, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.

It should be rendering fine in Firefox, IE7, IE6, Opera 9 and Safari.. please let me know if you're having issues because I've only Windows to check for those issues. The reason why the design is not in CSS only is because of IE6 and because many of the sections are very old and I've to change those ones to CSS too (and that's a lot of work right now).

Well, that's all, enjoy it, and sorry, no Xmas Layout this time.. but I'll add a new xmas wallpaper very soon, so stay tuned.

The Beast with a Billion Backs nominated for an Annie Award Is true, a little late, but is true. The 2nd Futurama Movie, The Beast with a Billion Backs was nominated for an Annie Award in the Best Animated Home Entertainment Production category, just like Bender's Big Score was nominated, later won that award last year. The nominees in that category are:
  • Batman: Gotham Knight (Warner Bros. Animation)
  • Christmas Is Here Again (Easy To Dream Entertainment)
  • Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs (The Curiosity Company in association with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment)
  • Justice League: The New Frontier (Warner Bros. Animation)
  • The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning (DisneyToon Studios)
Lets wait and see if Futurama can take that award once again, giving FOX one other reason why Futurama must return as a TV Series. Don't forget to check out all the 2008 Annie Award Nominees.

ILoveBender.com finally re-opened with a neat design featuring Farnsworth's Lab. You can play with some of the devices and go to the different sections (screenshots, videos, info of the movies, ). Overall it looks like a more organized site compared with the previus version.

Finally, and featured today, you'll find yet another new set of icons created by Gedeon Maheux from the Iconfactory.com featuring the characters from the movies like Nudar, Colleen O'Hallahan, Lars Fillmore, Yivo (inside Fry), and the Steamboat Fry and Bender (from the Beast with a Million Backs) and secondary characters like Barbados Slim, Bubblegum Tate, the Grand Preistess and the Hedionism Bot.

Pissed off Robot Devil by MissusPatches Oh my! yes... I've been working some more in the new TFP design.. I'm downgrading it becuase if I use CSS only, all the sections of the site must be updated, and it would take a lot of time that I don't have (also, is IE6's fault). Today, I've some neat fanart by MissuPatches.. 2 images featuring the relation of Bender and Leela (neat images and coloring) and other two, one featuring the Robot Devil as the Michigan J. Frog from the Looney Toones, and the last one also with te Robot Devil really pissed off.

Into the Wild Green Yonder Review at ScreenJabber Ok, is true, there's a very early review of the 4th Futurama Movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder. The people from ScreenJabber.com emailed all the Futurama websites to spread the news, so here we go with the resume of the movie, (small spoliers warning):

We begin on Mars, which is where much of the first act takes place. Property developer Leo Wong (Amy's dad) wants to demolish an entire arm of the Milky Way galaxy to make way for the biggest miniature-golf course in the universe [..] An accident during some demolition work on Mars [..] sees Fry develop mindreading abilities when a piece of women's jewellry gets lodged in his brain. Which leads to him wearing a tinfoil hat to keep the voices out, and joining the super-secret Legion of Mad Fellows (led by "Number 9 Man" [..]). Meanwhile, Bender starts having an affair with the burlesque-dancer wife of Donbot, head of the robot Mafia (and yes, Clamps is back!) and Leela joins an eco-feminist collective and becomes an outlaw. Oh, and Professor Farnsworth is the scientist roped in to do the environmental impact report for Wong's planned mini-golf course .. which gets the go-ahead. The final piece of the galaxy in his way is a violet dwarf star, which plays a vital part in the climax, so I won't go into details. Except to say that once again, the fate of the universe depends on Fry

Interesting right... It seems that the last DVD will be great, since ScreenJabber gave the movie 5/5 stars. For more details about the extras and more info about this awesome review, please visit the original ScreenJabber article.

In some other news, Bender's Game DVD at Amazon is now only at $13,99.. so you should grab your copy for Christmas if you don't have it already.

Video: Beelzebot Can't Decide by MissusPatches Hi everyone. Is time for a new update around here, so here you go two videos created by MissusPatches. One is called Beelzebot Can't Decide, featuring the Robot Devil of course, and the other is named Bender's Love Is A Lie, featuring Bender (of course, again).

I've been busy, really busy, so I had no time to finish the new design, and I stopped updating TFP this week.. but I'll try to catch up.. is difficult, but not impossible
