That was for Morbo, who was supposed to have an inhumanly deep, digitally altered voice, but then he just ended up doing it naturally.

Who sounds NOTHING AT ALL like Lrr or Horrible Gelatinous Blob.

That's a running gag in most of the commentaries featuring Maurice

Yes, but unlike FG, where Seth used the same voice for those two, Lrr, Morbo, and HGB are different voices...HGB's more so, but Lrr and Morbo are a bit different, too.

I just finished watching the latest episode of Futurama. And to be honest, I'm crushed. I have no complaint about the content of the show. I enjoyed every single minute. Every single minute I got to watch. With seconds left of the episode, at the climax of the emotional build of the story, it just ends. I am greeted by a screen taunting me with three options: Save, Delete, Back.

To hell with you Time Warner Cable or Comedy Central. Which ever one of you is responsible, whether intentionally or not, or both of you, you're a mean company/corporation/person.

It was a good episode, agree with the people saying that the ending didn't quite fit though. As a standalone episode great, but feels like it was missing a final writing pass to pull everything together just that little bit tighter.

Jerusalem posted:

I can't remember which voice actor it was, but on one of the commentaries they mentioned that they digitally lowered his voice much deeper but didn't actually tell him. When he came in to do the same character for another episode, he did the voice just as deep as it had been after digital enhancement, because he'd heard it, thought that was how he did it originally, and made his voice change to match

The most frightening story of this is Billy West doing the voice of some pulsating star character that essentially requires two separate noises to come out of his mouth simultaneously while doing dialogue. No separate takes or mixing involved. It's just all him.

They also explain during the commentaries that they were racking their brains trying to fix a humming noise happening during recording, which they assumed was from the audio equipment. Turns out, it was Billy West's vocal chords causing the problem.

New series voices sound a little more exaggerated than they used to be, to me at least. Almost hammed up for the part. I'm not saying they didn't ham it up in the original run, but more than the sound of the voice it feels like they changed the delivery and attitude just slightly. Enough for me to notice. I mean, opinion can differ, but that's how I see... er.. hear it.

I notice this most in Fry, Farnsworth, and Bender.

Ding, I noticed it also, mostly in Bender but also in Fry and Farnsworth, it's horrible, although it's gotten a lot better this season than the last.

He also did, my himself, Zoidberg crying in "Kiff Gets Knocked up a Notch."

And him and John DiMaggio did, again all by themselves, the "barbeque's over" sound the Martians make.

Yeah, I didn't mean for it to sound like the third act completely put me off the episode altogether or that it was some sort of horrible episode, I just didn't think the ending fit all that well. Personal opinions though
I didn't think you were and sorry if my comment came off that way. I agree that the ending felt rushed or just not as well paced as it could have been. Just enjoyed the episode for those reasons I stated and I guess that could imply those who didn't were ungrateful or expecting too much which isn't fair.

I notice this most in Fry, Farnsworth, and Bender.

Zoidberg and Hermes sound the most consistent to me. Leela is fine, and I don't really pay that much attention to Amy so whatevs

Most likely it's because they forgot how exactly to do the voices during the Dark Ages.

When the movies were made they had to go back and watch how they did them, and of course you're never going to get it exactly the same.

Leela's stays consistent because it's just Katey Sagal's real voice, and some like Cubert stay the same because Kath Soucie is terrible and uses the same voice for everything.

The seven-leaf clover is what led Fry to find out about the science fair, which is the reason he was able to save the entire island of Manhattan in 3011.

Several other things too. The commentaries mention a few times how Bender is way more than 100%. Or says he is anyway.

I like that he's always 40% something, except once when he offered his complementary 60% storage space.

So clearly he's just constantly buying and selling his body to take advantage of market fluctuations.

He's said 30%, too, at least once..."30% Iron Chef."

Plus, in "A Pharaoh to Remember," the professor states a standard bending unit is made from a iron/osmium alloy, but Bender was special...he had a .04% nickle impurity.

So we got 40% zinc (Amy suggest he take zinc for his cold, and he says this,) 30% iron, 40% titanium, 40% dolomite, 40% chromium, .04% nickle impurity, plus some unknown amount of osmium...60% storage space, though I guess that doesn't have to be added to anything...he's also 40% scrap metal, though any metal can be considered scrap metal, so eh.
