Bad news, everyone: Comedy Central has declined to renew Futurama, making the current seventh season its last. It’s a disappointment fans should be familiar with. Futurama ended its originally run on Fox in 2004, but was brought back to life by Comedy Central in 2008. Its makers don’t sound so shocked either. “I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” executive producer David X. Cohen said. Hit the jump to keep reading.

In the two plus decades since its premiere, the true location of The Simpsons’ hometown of Springfield has never been revealed. The mystery soon developed into a running joke on the show as characters would divulge completely contrary geographic information about the town, all but cementing the fact that the Springfield of The Simpsons wasn’t a real place. It was every place.
A new quote from Simpsons creator Matt Groening doesn’t exactly change that but he does reveal, for what is likely the first time, which specific Springfield the one in the show is based on. And if you think we’re going to offer up that info before the jump, you’re out of your animated mind. Read More »

There was a bit of a surprise today at the Simpsons Comic-Con panel. Unbeknown to Groening and the other members of the panel, a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records appeared on stage for a big reveal: He announced that The Simpsons is now the longest running sitcom in the world, displacing The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet which had 435 episodes.
It was also announced that they now have the Guinness for the most Emmy’s for a single show, and the show was selected by Guinness readers as one of the top 100 records of the decade. They were a bit unclear on what that last award meant, but I figure it’s something along the lines of a lifetime achievement award for breaking so many records.
What if The Simpsons creator Matt Groening had animated Ghostbusters? Artist Dean Fraser runs a blog called Springfield Punx where he parodies some of his favorite stars and characters in the style of The Simpsons. Last week Fraser took on The Ghostbusters, and I just love the cartoon renderings of the classic film characters. Check out more, including the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, after the jump.
