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

Robot Hell Song:
Robot Devil: Cigars are evil,
You won't miss 'em,
We'll find ways to simulate that smell,
What a sorry fella,
Rolled up and smoked like a donnetela,
Here on Level One of Robot Hell.
Robot Devil: Gambling's wrong and so is cheating,
So is forging phoney IOU's,
Let's let Lady Luck decide,
What type of torture's justified,
I'm pit boss here on Level Two.
Robot Devil: Ooo, deep-fried robot!
Bender: Just tell me why...
Robot Devil: Check out this 55-page warrant.
Bender: There must be robots worse than I...
Robot Devil: We've checked it out; there really aren't.
Bender: Then please let me explain,
My crimes were merely boy-ish pranks...
Robot Devil: You stole from boy scouts, nuns, and banks!
Bender: Ah, don't blame me;
Blame my upbringing!
Robot Devil: Please stop sinning while I'm singing!
Robot Devil: Selling bootleg tapes is wrong,
Musicians need that income to survive.
Beastie Boys: Hey, Bender, gonna make some noise,
With your hard drive scratched by the Beastie Boys!
That's whatcha, whatcha, whatcha get on Level Five!
Fry: I don't feel well...
Leela: It's up to us to rescue him.
Fry: Maybe he likes it here in Hell...
Leela: It's us who tempted him to sin.
Fry: Maybe he's back at the motel...
Leela: Come on, Fry, don't be scared,
I'm sure at least one of us will be spared,
So just sit back, enjoy the ride.
Fry: My ass has blisters from the slide!
Robot Devil: Fencing diamonds,
Fixing cockfights,
Publishing indecent magazines,
You'll pay for every crime,
Knee-deep in electric slime,
You'll suffer till the end of time,
Enduring tortures, most of which rhyme,
Trapped forever here in Robot Hell!

Farnsworth: (on the phone) Oh, how awful. Did he at least die painlessly? To shreds, you say. Well, how is his wife holding up? To shreds, you say. Very well then. (hangs up) Sad, sad, terrible, gruesome news about my colleague, Dr. Mobutu.
Leela: Was his apartment rent-controlled?
