Taglines from seasons 1-4 of Futurama on Flickr. Also worth checking out, Chuck Lorre's Vanity Cards. They used to appear on Dharma and Greg and are now on Two and a Half Men. via

I wish someone would do that [screen grab I can watch in a Flckr slideshow] with all of the stuff Bart writes on the chalkboard at the beginning of each the Simpsons.

THIS EPSIODE PERFORMED ENTIRELY BY SOCK PUPPETS

Will this call for a MetaTalk call-out?

Dharma and Greg was on for FIVE years?

I'm inclined to ask -- were there actually episodes that had no tagline, or was it just slightly dodgy capturing on the part of the album owner?

I wish they would have brought that show back, instead of Family Guy. It was wonderful (and still is, on Adult Swim). Even the "30th Century Fox" thing at the end still makes me smile.

birdherder, i think there are a ton of them somewhere online--check the simpsons sites.

1-3 should be "As seen on TV" and 1-9 is "Condemned by the Space Pope."

Funny nonetheless. These are totally worth having on DVD for the commentaries. John DiMaggio and David X. Cohen are hilarious.

Not only is Mr. David X. Cohen funny, but he is also a pretty good C programmer.

And my fav image is probably Coming Soon to an Illegal DVD. But thats for reasons I wont talk about here. Followed closely by Hey Tivo, Suggest This!.

My favorite is the second to last, which decodes to "Thanks for watching, Futurama slave army!"

It's like "Hee Haw" with Lasers

It sucks that Fox never knew what to do with this show.

There's an interview with Billy West in this week's Onion. He says Fox execs deliberately didn't promote the show because they couldn't have creative control and wanted it to go away.

err, jeez, did anyone sift through those chuck lorre title cards? i always have to catch the tail end of dharma and greg since it comes on before simpsons reruns, but i always figured the huge block of text at the end of every episode was the same each time. how deluded is this guy?

From that Billy West interview:
Now they're talking about doing a Futurama movie to DVD, and then a second and a third, so there's life after death. ... Fox was really pleased with the sales of the Futurama DVDs. They're really happy with it, so they're talking about a budget for it.
Excellent news!

totally!

I can't imagine Fox was happy with the political content, esp the Nixon stuff.

Well, they let Karl Rove do a guest spot on "American Dad" tonight.

Thanks GG - great post, you made my afternoon (and it sure beats working)

chuck lorre started the unique title card thing with Mad About You. Some producer said that here could put what ever he wanted in the space and he did. Apparently he was totally surprised anyone would actually VCR it and read the whole thing. I think the story is in one of the MAY title cards.
