I know, I know. Just last week I posted something about the four all-new Futurama movies that are being produced for the home video market, but there was an event at the San Diego Comic Con that went well-reported by Home Media Magazine, and I was just too nerded out to contain myself. Most importantly, we have a DVD release date for Bender's Big Score!. And that release date is November 27.

I have no idea if the Cinematical guys made it over to the Con's Futurama exhibit (although I do hope so), but here's what went down: Futurama actors Katey Sagal (Leela), Billy West (Fry, Zoidberg, Farnsworth, etc.), John DiMaggio (Bender) and Maurice LaMarche (Kif, Morbo, Calculon, etc.) were on hand to "act out" some of the material from a "Futurama Returns" comic book that was available at the event. Sounds like a lot of fun, actually, and I hope HMM is right when they assume that this appearance will show up on a future DVD release. Apparently this comic book (which I WANT A COPY OF!) bridges the gap between the final Futurama episode (The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings) and the opening of Bender's Big Score!. (It's Groening's exclamation point, not mine.)
