Death by Snu-Snu: Futurama to Get Mashed Together With The Simpsons for a Crossover Episode Send-Off

But who will play the Great Gazoo!?

Oh no, Futurama is over! But it's back! But it's over! But it's back! Yes, Futurama is coming back one last time (again) for a Simpsons crossover of Flintstones/Jetsons proportions. The Family Guy/Simpsons crossover is getting a bit more crowded, as it'll serve up a delicious cameo of the week from Bob's Burgers.

The Futurama Skyline Recreated in 3D Makes Us Want to Go to There

Good news, everyone!

As long as there are talented people like artist Alexy Zakharov, Futurama never has to die (or be captured by the sunset squad robots). Check his breathtaking reimagining of the skyline from the show's opening, and then look at a 360 view of his version of the Planet Express ship and his equally beautiful concept art for the clip after the jump. If only there were a convenient meme to express how I'd feel about paying to see more of this...

Tested.com just released a video chronicling the production of a life-like animatronic Zoidberg costume from effects artist Frank Ippolito.

Get Back To Basics With This Pop Culture Alphabet

Awwwwww

This charming series is the work of Jeff Victor, whose art we've featured previously. If you have young ones this might benefit -- or an empty spot on your grown-up wall -- he's got a poster print available for sale. The V, W, and X panel makes for an interesting discussion piece on the signature outfits of female characters, wouldn't you say?

Art Project Tails You Lose Transforms Queen Elizabeth Into X-Men, Leela and Other Pop Culture Icons

Not all that glitters is gold

Of course it's not just Queen Elizabeth, it's also pretty much anything or anyone who graces the face of a coin in Europe, from Italy to the Netherlands, and from Turkey to Spain; from X-Men to Futurama, from Hammer Horror to Miyazaki. We've featured a few of them here, but be sure to check out the rest of Andre Levy's work on Tumblr or Facebook.

What If My Little Pony’s Trixie Was Voiced By John DiMaggio?

i'll just leave this here

I'm of the mind voice actor John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time) should do a character in every show. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

Shut up and Take My Money! Somebody Made A Holophonor from Futurama

Only a few people in the whole universe can play that -- and they're not very good at it.

Ever wanted to tell your one-eyed girlfriend how much you love her, but without all those annoying words that get tangled up in your dumb 20th century brain? The holophonor would be able to help you with that -- you know, if it were real. One lucky client of Volpin Props is going to get pretty close, though, with this amazing replica of the Futurama prop.

Futurama And Adventure Time Are About To Get A Canonical Crossover. Mathematical!

Oh Mah Glob Guys

You read that right: Futurama is about to get some Jake-the-Dog and Finn-the-Human in an upcoming episode of the final season of the show. This is not a drill, I repeat, this is not a drill, nor is this wishful fan art! Voice actor John DiMaggio (who plays both Bender and Jake) certainly has his work cut out for him. Did they have him switch back and forth? Did he ever get the two voices confused? I kind of hope they made him do it all at once. Previously in Futurama

Probably Not Drift Compatible: Seven Fantastic Examples of Technobabble

A selection of defining uses of technobabble in sci-fi and beyond

Technobabble -- the scientific-sounding gibberish that scientist characters spew in every episode of Star Trek -- is the dilithium crystal in the warp engine that makes science fiction run. It can get to ridiculous levels. Ron Moore steered clear of it in Battlestar Galactica because his Trek scripts filled up with [INSERT TECH HERE], but ultimately it's hard to get by without it. Technobabble generally does make sense on a superficial level, since there's so much speculative science out there that there's bound to be a field related to whatever the story requires. For better or for worse, take a look at the greatest ways technobabble has been put to use.

Good News, Everyone: Watsky Wrote a Spec Script for Futurama That You Can Read Right Now

Too bad it will never get produced! Oh... I made myself sad.

Putting together spec scripts for already-existing television shows is a great way for young and budding television writers to practice their skills -- kind of like fanfic that you can use to get a real job. Too bad rapper and slam poetry sensation George Watsky doesn't have a whole lot of time to get his Futurama spec script in the hands of producers, what with the show set to end at the beginning of September. In order to not deprive the world of his self-proclaimed magnum opus, he put the whole thing up on his website for us all to read instead. What a great headache with pictures he had!

Speaking of ’60s Batman and Futurama, Here’s ’60s Batman in Futurama

What, you aren't always talking about Batman and Futurama on a constant loop?

Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.

Neil Gaiman Discusses His Contribution To Doctor Who’s TARDIS & Its Dislike Of Clara

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

BBC America invited The Mary Sue on a very special press conference call with Neil Gaiman in advance of his Doctor Who episode this weekend. "Nightmare in Silver" is the prolific author's return to the show as well as the return of the Cybermen. While we were thrilled to hear him speak about his new ideas and the experience writing the episode (it's a fun one!), we were very curious to know what his thoughts were on Clara's seemingly troubled relationship with the TARDIS.
