Futurama Cast Speaks on Show's Return

at . Comments

We cannot wait for the return of Futurama, as the animated comedy airs new episodes again on Comedy Central this summer, starting tonight.

But there's a group of people even more excited about this than the TV Fanatic staff: the Futurama cast.

TV Guide spoke to the actors and actresses that voice characters such as Fry and all of them expressed shock and joy over their return to the air. To wit:

Bill West: "In my heart of hearts, I knew this show was too good to die."

John DiMaggio: "The amount of times the show has been revived from the dead is unbelievable. I love working on zombie Futurama."

Katey Sagal: "The show has been consistently intelligent and funny. To me it's always been one of the best-written shows that I've ever been on... besides Sons of Anarchy."

Maurice LeMarche: "There's a bigger emotional core than ever there was in a season. This season we have more shows that may leave you with a little tear in your eye or make you say, 'Wow, that show really said something.'"

Catch up on your favorite Futurama quotes now and return to TV Fanatic tomorrow for a rundown of the latest.  We'll update that section every week, all summer long.

Futurama Quotes

Singer: Call Robo-Rooter when you flush your towel.
Plumber-bot: And we can also help with an impacted bowel!

Little: Hello and welcome to a remarkable championship bout. Destructor, a robotic armoured tank, whose very use at battle has been ruled a war crime, versus Gender Bender, who wears a pink tutu. This is Rich Little, imitating Howard Cosell, here at ringside with George Foreman. George, a word in edgewise?
Foreman: This could be the most one-sided fight since 1973 when Ali faced an 80-foot tall mechanical Joe Frazier. M-My memory's not what it used to be but I think the entire Earth was destroyed.
Little: Interesting, if true. The Vegas odds tonight stand at an unprecedented 1000-0; a bet of $0 on Bender pays $1000 if he wins. Still, very few takers.
Foreman: It's not-not a smart bet.
