Yay, Pazuzu! (And belated yay for the Grand Midwife).

I'd just like to second that "Yay, Pazuzu!".  Nice touch getting that owl in there as well.  :)
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

Tonk not fat!

This picture is getting excellently seizure-inducing. Hypnotoad is a bit oversized, though. (A reflection of his inflated importance in fandom?) All the other characters are the right relative size, which is the way it should be, IMHO, so you might consider changing that.
I said: Hey, you! Feed the machine!
Bring them all back down to their knees!
There's no time to waste, remind the slaves
They ain't gonna make it out alive today.
I said: Hey, you! Poison the well!
Watch it all burn, take them straight to hell!
He's got the whole world in his hands
It was nice to know ya
We've all been damned!
C'mon!

Yeah, I'm not actually sure what The Hypnotoad's size really is, I just know he's larger than most toads. I might just check the episode again to see if I can get a more accurate gauge on exactly how big he is. Thanks Chris :)

Funnily enough, sizing them accurately is one of the hardest parts. Though they can easily be stretched and rescaled, too much thins or thickens the lines too much sometimes.

There are enough Futurama characters to circle the globe five times. Once again, brilliant lobster pics.

Oh dear. The number of people on there is making it harder and harder to spot the new additions... I never realised how big the cast was until now. I'm impressed at your dedication.

Awesome job!  I love the inclusion of "The widow Pacman" (sob sob, wacka-wacka)
Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old,
Can you hear me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles,
With itching feet and fading smiles,
Can you feel me?
Hey You! Don\'t help them to bury the light.
Don\'t give in without a fight.

Spoock! *ahem* I mean Leonard. Nice. :)

Out of interest, do you have all these little guys stored as separate images as well?

Yes, each character has their own seperate image file too. Though how much of them is drawn varies. Sometimes they're full-body images, sometimes just head and shoulders, and sometimes somewhere inbetween. It depends.

Space. It seems to go on and on forever.
But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you.

No idea. Especially with the new DVD's coming out. A while yet, I'd say.
