Watch a Live-Action, Hand-Made Version of the 'Futurama' Opening Sequence
As "Futurama" fans most likely know, TV's most resilient animated show (besides maybe "Family Guy," which also got cancelled once) is back tonight, Wednesday June 20. To mark the occasion, Comedy Central made the most adorable live-action version of the show's opening sequence.
Well, it's mostly live-action... there's a bit of special effects work on the screen that advertises the show's premiere. But the rest of it is very detailed and impressive: the letters of the title are spun around on dowels by hand, and the Planet Express ship flies through New New York controlled by a human hand.
Even the camera movements are accurate to the show, and the miniature set of New New York is impressively detailed. Does it serve much purpose? No. Is it pretty cool? Shyeah.
The two-episode premiere of "Futurama" airs tonight on Comedy Central at 10PM Eastern. Miss it, and you'll feel more left out than Zoidberg.
