Zoidberg

  1. Why Not [Build an Incredibly Lifelike Animatronic Costume of] Zoidberg?

    ...and then walk it around WonderCon!

    Tested.com just released a video chronicling the production of a life-like animatronic Zoidberg costume from effects artist Frank Ippolito. See how he brought a flat, simple cartoon character into the real world with impressive detail (including moving tentacles!) We want to hang out with real-life Zoidberg.

  2. Realistic Futurama Busts are Awesome, Creepy

    No one is going to argue that Futurama has any illusions of being even remotely realistic. Between the energy beings, the wide cast of bizarre aliens, mutants, and anthropomorphic robots, you can't really argue that anything in the show is trying to mirror anything remotely close to "real life" at all. That is probably why these realistic busts of Futurama characters by deviantART-ist artanis-one are so awesome and, let's be honest, disturbing.

    Can you imagine if Zoidberg actually looked like that? It's hard to picture him as the clown of the crew when you're staring into the face of a realistic lobsterman. Imagine what his claws look like. "Woob woob woob" suddenly gets a little more sinister. I'm not even going to bring up Nibbler. You can see that for yourself.

  3. The Eight Greatest Futurama Minor Characters

    After seven years on TV Ice-Catraz, Futurama is coming back to Comedy Central in June, with 26 episodes on order.

  4. New Futurama Trailer Is Here

    Futurama is coming back to Comedy Central in June, and the very first promotional trailer is out. It's 30 seconds long, and very Comedy Central-centric (the giant TV from the classic title sequence has a big ol' Comedy Central ad on it), but the glimpse of Bender and Zoidberg saying new things that they have not said before will probably sate most fans. Hopefully, the new series is more in the vein of Futurama up to 2003 more than the Futurama movies.

    Trailer after the jump: Hypnotoad commands you to watch it. (Yes, we used that exact same joke the last time we wrote about the new Futurama, but it still applies.)
