    Also an issue is that Futurama costs a lot more to produce than Family Guy. About twice as much, I believe thanks to the more expensive animation and voice talent.

    Why won't Fox bring Futurama back? Simple: Matt Groening retained the merchandising rights. Fox owns the merchandising rights to Family Guy. Sorry to be cynical but I really think that's a big part of it.

    I gotta agree with Scott. From the beginning, FOX didn't appear to be a fan of the show. It's a wonder that it lasted 4 years. I wish it could have gone on for many more. [​IMG]

    By the way, I remember when Futurama first aired, Matt Groening mentioned in a T.V. Guide article that he had plans to make a full-length animated Futurama feature film for the big-screen. I wonder if he's still interested in doing it.

    I absoultely can't wait to own this entire series on DVD. I have no complaints with the sets, and I think the audio commentaries are some of the most lively and fun I've heard on any release.

    I believe Matt Groening also retained editorial rights on Futurama so Fox couldn't dictate script changes.
