What a Real Life Smurf Looks Life

Maybe I’ve eaten too many Smurf Berries

After finding out that the science fiction within Comedy Central‘s Futurama isn’t actually Fiction, you begin to think what else could actually be real.

Then came this, a render of what a Smurf would look like it if it were real. Great render, so life like. Mind you- I wouldn’t mind if these little rascals were in the Smurf 3D movie instead, can you imagine what they would do to Gargamel?

The Science of Futurama is Actually Real in Our World Today

How Futurama gets science right (sort of)

The same world we see Fry stare of  could well and truly be our world of tomorrow.

Usually these articles are fun facts, mere quips for us to read and enjoy like the Futurama inventions we WISHED were real but to actually have a source like Discovery Channel tell us the science fiction isn’t exactly fiction is amazing. I’ve always wanted to go out for a drink with someone like Bender.

Talal Al-Khatib discovers the truth

The article over at Discovery Channel may not help the dream of  sharing a drink with Bender but it does share insights on the weird of insightful things from the world of tomorrow such as;

Diseases 

The first half of the first episode of the sixth season, titled “Rebirth,” begins with a simple conundrum: All of the characters are dead save Professor Farnsworth (and one other, though we won’t say who to avoid spoiling it for you).

To reanimate his very dead crew, the Professor has a simple answer: bathing the remains of the deceased in a stem-cell solution in what he calls a “birth machine.”

Reviving the dead, for now, remains an impossibility. But using stem cells to rebuild damaged tissue? That process is growing closer to reality as a number of institutions have explored the possibility of using stem cells to promote tissue regeneration of skin, muscles, blood vessels and more.

Human trials for these procedures are still years away, however.

Even Heads…in Jars !

In the world of “Futurama,” humans share their universe not only with aliens, robots and mutants, but also historical figures ranging from dead presidents (with a recurring role for Richard Nixon) to contemporary celebrities.

How are these long-dead people kept alive in the 31st century? It’s simple: Their severed heads are preserved in jars.

Keeping heads preserved in a jar may seem impossible and has yet to be proven, but the U.S. government has granted patents to applicants claiming they had developed systems for keeping severed heads alive. There’s even

If you think the heads in the jars thing was eerie peer over to the Discovery Channel Futurama page and see more of what we humans could be living like thanks to the imagination of Matt Groening…and science too- I guess.

Top 6 Steve Jobs Parodies in Animated Comedy

STEVE JOBS!

YOU CAN NO QUIT WORK! THAT LIKE JOHNNY CASH HAVE NO MONEY – @DRUNK HULK

Steve Jobs, we have so much to thank for the work you have done. Are we talking about the iPhones, iPods , the Macbooks and other Apple Products? Nope. Okay so we must be talking about the movies that his investment in Pixar has helped create? Not that either.

It’s the appearances that Steve Jobs has made in animated comedy. After Steve Jobs resigned from Apple he may be gone but not forgotten. Here is a tribute to the man behind the half eaten Apple in the Top 6 Parodies in Animated Comedy.

6. Robot Chicken – Zune Man

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no it’s Zune Man

Apple is known for being revolutuary but what happens to those products that become obsolete. You remember the Compact Disk? It was like a CD but more…compact. Robot Chicken holds nothing back in showing how great those products were with the Zune – Man to the rescue as a bonus!

5. The Simpsons – Mypods and Boomsticks

The prices of Apples products – “Don’t get me started”

MyPods, MyPhones, MyCubes, MyPhonies and MyTunes. So many products you don’t need but it’s something about them that makes you want to fork out an arm and a leg to purchase a MyPod as The Simpsons would say. Lisa finds out the hard way of the prices at Mapple.

4. Super News – Steve Jobs Vs Bill Gates

PC or Mac, the age old arguement

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, the two heavy weights of computer retail are the spawn of the age old argument of nerdom. What’s better ? A Mac or PC but Super News give us a way to settle the feud. Instead of us arguing we will leave it to a battle between Gates and Jobs for a winner takes all battle royal.

3. College Humor – Charlie and the Apple Factory

The best new iPad feature? Golden tickets. 

You ever wonder what makes Apple so special. Why it looks so slick with such minimalism? College Humor takes a trip into the Apple factory, who knows what you may find. To be the man behind Apple you’d think you would have a bit of a personality but this is borderline insanity from Steve Jobs in this.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

2. Futurama – Attack of the Killer App

Why is it called an Eye – Phone? I’ll explain after I install it. 

“It’s $500, the battery can’t hold a charge and the reception isn’t very- shut up and take my money “. That couldn’t some up Apple enough. Their solution to the iPhone reception problem was – don’t hold the phone that way. There is the Crackberry for the Blackberry and Jobs has created the Crapple. Once you slide your finger over that glossy screen for the first time staring at your glorious apps – you’re hooked. Isn’t that right Fry?

1. South Park – HumancentiPad

Do you actually read the Terms and Agreements?

If you update your itunes without reading what you are agreeing to you can end up in the same situation as Kyle. To think with the ipad is mass production , what else can Steve Jobs produce. A product that’s part human, part centipede , part web browser and part emailing device- how about a product that just works with no catch 22’s.

Steve Job’s you will be missed but with you gone it’s going to be all on Bill Gates and well he’s kind of boring. 

Best Animated TV Comedy Of All Time – Your Vote

College Humor’s Results

The top spot for the best TV Comedy of all time has been discussed, battled and raged about over many years.

College Humor decided to end all the talk and put it to a vote. Fans of the site had a chance vote for The Best TV Comedy Of All Time. The results didn’t throw up many shocks, all your favourites are included, minus a few english classics.

What will not come as much as a surprise is that the top 2 best TV comedies of all time are 2 animations, yep no actors needed. Legendary shows The Simpsons and South Park Hit the number 1 and 2 spot respectively.

The People’s Top 5

5. Family Guy

The King of the Cutaway, Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy is so funny that it played a joke on Fox by being canceled and making DVD money after the fact. Some people don’t like the non sequitur style of the famous Family Guy gags, but those people just remind me of the time I was locked in a monkey cage in Venezuela with Gary Busey.

4. The Office

There’s nothing like relaxing after a long day at the office by watching people in an office, and there’s nothing more American than taking something from Britain and making it our own. The U.S. version of the The Office pays homage to the classic original, but ultimately finds its own voice, which is definitely a feat worthy of a seat so high on our list.

3. Futurama

Getting accidentally frozen cryogenic-style and waking up in a future where Katey Segal is a one eyed babe is every slacker’s fantasy, and Futurama is the vehicle that lets us live that dream! I mean, who doesn’t want to be best friends with a hard-drinking robot or have pets that poop dark matter? Yea the future sure does look great. Unless of course you live in New York… Enjoy your mutanthood…

2. South Park

Who knew that the crappy cardboard paper you used to play with in preschool could make you millions? Like The Simpsons before it, South Park showed us what animated humor could be if it were on cable. Barf humor and anal probes propelled the series (and its network) to super star status. We now live in a world where we can say “shit” on basic cable. South Park did that.

1. The Simpsons

The Simpsons has come a long way from its roots as a short on The Tracy Ullman Show, as it gears up to enter its 23rd season. This house of Homer is both an animation and comedy institution. In fact, The Simpsons was a major influence for most of the shows on this list. I mean, c’mon. How many shows have had a catchphrase included in the freaking dictionary?

Vote For Your Favourite

It’s great to see the top 5 dominated by 4 animated comedies. So the questions we pose to you is what is your favourite Animated Comedy?

You have a choice of Family Guy, Futurama, South Park and The Simpsons.

EW argues the case.

College Humor’s results put The Simpsons as number one. Over at Entertainment Weekly things got a bit heated. Even StayToonedIn writer Peter Bakare has his say

Out of the 4, It would have to be South Park! The Simpsons have over 20 seasons and to keep up the level is impressive but if you had to be honest with yourself when was the last time The Simpsons actually made you laugh continuously throughout the episode?

10 Things You Might Know Troy McClure From

Hi I’m Troy Mclure- You may remember me from….

10 Great hits McClure has starred in

Troy Mclure, one of the biggest-smallest-giant-petite characters in The Simpsons cartooniverse. Known for taking any acting job that will keep his career alive and will let you know he has done it too, whether the job is humiliating, vulgar or puny it doesn’t matter to him he will take it with a coke and a smile.

Voiced by the Phil Hartman, McClure has had many film credits to his name. Guest appearances were many during the first ten seasons of the The Simpsons before Hartman’s death in 1998.

Rest In Peace

With Mclure’s voice and soul deceased, himself along with Lionel Hutz, Attorney-at-Law were both retired out of respect, they are gone but not forgotten. Topless Robot give us the 10 Great Things You May Know Troy McClure From.

Film Credits

10) Video Tour Guide at Rancho Relaxo

9) Narrator for Sex-Ed Films

8) Meat Council Video Host

7) Infomercials with Dr. Nick Riviera

One role McClure would have been perfect for

You could have remembered me from Futurama

It’s no coicedence that Hartman was due to voice Zap Brannigan ,25-Star General in the Democratic Order of Planets, and captain of his flagship; the Nimbus. It’s a role that Troy McClure would have been prefect for and could have been one of his greatest roles.

The resemblance is uncanny. Not to say Billy West doesn’t do a great job- quite the opposite but the question does linger what would have been if we got to hear McClure utter.

I’m actor Troy McClure. You might remember me from such TV series as “The Simpsons and Futurama
