The world knows and loves Matt Groening for his unprecedented and unparalleled work on "The Simpsons." During the Fox Network's ambitious "Animation Domination" initiative, Groening teamed with David Cohen, creating a second hit animated series, "Futurama." Groening and Cohen described their wonderwork as "retrofuturistic," an amazingly apt oxymoron for a working class sitcom set in the thirty-first century. Apparently, blue collar labor will not evolve over the next thousand years: In "Futurama," a late 20th century pizza delivery guy is accidentally cryogenically frozen for a millennium; when he thaws and returns to consciousness, he finds a job at Planet Express, an inter-planetary delivery company. Not especially concerned with science, the writers focus the stories on the workplace trials and tribulations of the three central characters"”Fry, Leela, and Bender. Their future dramas strangely resemble every working person's today dramas. Although "Futurama" has moved up and down the dial, exiting Fox for Cartoon Network, and bidding farewell to Cartoon Network for a new home on "Comedy Central," it has held onto a fiercely loyal audience, and it especially has garnered unprecedented critical acclaim. In 2010, "Futurama" set a Guiness World Record for "Current Most Critically-Acclaimed Animated Series", adding to its eight Emmys and thirteen Annies.

Bob's Burgers

Animation & Cartoons
"Bob's Burgers" re-opened on Main Street in its imaginary town just in time to fill a gap and restore the life in Fox Network's Sunday-night "Animation Domination" line-up. For at least three seasons, the animation had remained, but the domination drained away. "Bob's Burgers" brought back the disaffected viewers, immediately scoring excellent ratings and even better reviews. Of course, local restaurateur Bob has a troubled family; who doesn't? Unlike the Simpsons, your favourite family guy, and the folks in Cleveland's neighbourhood, however, Bob's family doesn't even put-up a pretence to reconciliation and love. Why would they? They are far funnier when they fight. Each character is as flat as the simple drawings that bring the people to life: Bob's wife Tina idealizes marriage. Daughters Louise and Linda are a trouble-maker and a freak respectively; and son Gene is the avatar of all things loud and obnoxious. The simple stuff works because the writers and animators have talent and skill to play it to the max. "Bob's Burgers" has the right ingredients in the right proportions"”spectacular writing combines with simple-but-engaging animation as expert comedians deliver the lines even better than the writers intended. One critic, pointing out the characters' "lovability," noted, "Two minutes into the second episode, countless winning jokes already have hit the mark." Wow, an animated series that actually delivers what the viewers crave? What a concept!
