Futurama footage from Comic-Con - VIDEO

Futurama FoxUsually, we don't get/need to post stuff we hear via movie blogs, but when the wonderful world of TV and film collide, strange things can happen. Over at Ain't it Cool News, Hercules posted some new Futurama footage that was shown as an introductory trailer to the four DVD films that will be produced and shown on Comedy Central. Personally, I just want new full seasons of Futurama, without the horrible thought that it might end after the 16-episode run.

The below video is pretty funny, but Family Guy did a similar joke when they came back from the dead. I have always loved it when Fox shows made fun of Fox. I am not sure if this footage will be part of the movies or not, but it looks probable. Enjoy!

Unleash the Balls of Fury

ping pong ballSorry, I know Comic-Con has come and gone and we've all gone back to our boring, mundane lives, but I just found this great clip featuring Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon of Reno 911! and The State talking about their upcoming ping-pong movie, Balls of Fury. In the midst of a Q and A, a man approaches the mic and begins to chastise the two actors for daring to mock the game of ping-pong. I'm not positive, because it's difficult to get a clear look at the man's face, but I believe it's comedian Chris Tallman, perhaps most recognizable as the host of Comedy Central's short-lived series Crossballs. But then, I could be wrong. Anyway, check out the video and see how real men handle hecklers:

Watch this preview of The Simpsons movie while you can - VIDEO

Simpsons movieIf you're curious about the upcoming Simpsons movie (and who isn't?) and want to see a really, really rough preview of it, watch the video that's embedded after the jump. The producers of the movie came to the San Diego Comic Con and presented a preview of the movie consisting of storyboard drawings and the voices of the main characters. Apparently, Homer has gotten himself in some sort of trouble (shocker), and the people of Springfield are more upset with him than ever.

Anyway, I'd watch the video now and not wait until later, because FOX might move pretty quickly to have YouTube take it down. So click on the link below and enjoy.

(UPDATE: Reader Douglin sent us a link to a second video... it looks like Homer is on a dog sled in this scene. Pretty funny. You can find it here.)

(UPDATE #2: Both videos have been taken down by YouTube. Hope you enjoyed them while they were up.)

Triumph poops on Comic Con

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 25th 2006 6:22PM

triumphDuring an introductory speech for Robert Smigel given by cartoon historian Jerry Beck at the San Diego Comic Con, the world's only insult comic dog, Triumph, popped up and went on a hilarious tirade about Beck's boring speech and the innumerable nerds who were in attendance. This is footage shot by someone who was actually there, so there's a lot of swearing and you also get to see Robert Smigel actually doing the voice and manipulating the puppet. Of course, they don't try very hard to hide that when he does his shtick on Conan, but Smigel is in the middle of a crowd and really has nowhere to hide. Beck actually posted the video on his Cartoon Brew site, but I stuck it after the jump for your viewing pleasure. My favorite part is when he tells a rather rotund attendee he must love the "Fantastic Four food groups." Click on and enjoy.

UPDATE: The video is no longer available, apparently.

Smigel and Kricfalusi collaboration?

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 24th 2006 11:01AM
george liquorThere are no plans for a collaboration involving Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi and Robert Smigel of TV Funhouse and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog fame, but John K wrote on his blog recently about an encounter with Smigel at Comic-Con in which Smigel expressed his love for John K's "George Liquor" character, and K asked if Smigel would be interested in writing some episodes for a straight-to-video release. This was just two gents chatting, so it means nothing, but what do my fellow animation fans think of a collaboration between these two fellas? I think they have a similar sense of humor, and under the right circumstances they could probably come up with something pretty cool.
