Republicans applaud Fox for Futurama re-casting cutbacks.



The Republican leadership in Washington D.C. has released a statement applauding Fox studios for their recent decision to re-cast the voice talent in the freshly revived animated series "Futurama." The news that Fox is not prepared to pay the former cast members the salaries they were asking for and has instead decided to re-cast the show has been slammed by fans, who have largely reacted with disgust and disbelief, with many saying they will refuse to watch the budget series, while others view this as a slap in the face to devoted fans who have pushed so hard for the show to return.


However, Republicans in Washington have argued that the decision was a wise one: "In these tough times, we need cutbacks," said the statement by the GOP, "We applaud Fox for this bold decision, which demonstrates exactly the kind of thinking we need for the future. A lower budget and a new voice cast will stimulate fans' imaginations leading to a fresh growth of the show. This isn't the time to be investing in something of great quality because of some future belief that quality will bring profits."

A still from the new low-budget Futurama.

  2. Pathetic. We won't watch Futurama unless it's Futurama. Futurama is only coming back because of the fans...and now FOX is going to smack those fans in the face. You think we want some low-budget crap? I'd rather stick to the reruns on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network). I'm sure you're going to wish you had bet on good quality producing profits, because poor quality isn't going to produce anything...except a big fat "I told you so" from Futurama fans.

  6. They're kidding, right? :---|

    "In these tough times, we need cutbacks"
    - how about we cut down your salary then, huh? Would you still stand behind your words?

  7. Are you people really that stupid? Come on. Learn to think for yourself. This post is a hoax... at least the part about the Republicans. The part about recasting Futurama may or may not be a hoax. Time will tell, but casting notices have been sent out to seek voice actors for the "new" Futurama. Some fans think that is a hoax too.

  8. A.) This is hilarious!

    B.) Did you sign ITGuy's petition that was in the comments of the same article you posted this link in? If you didn't it's on my blog www.bornforgeekdom.com

    I know petitions don't really do much technically, but I need SOME way to vent my rage and show my support of Billy and John in particular.

  9. ROFL Futurama is here because of the "devoted" fans, now with the replacement VA's FOX has effectively cost themselves a lot more money then they wish to save. WELL DONE!
