Adam West and Burt Ward Will Be on Futurama


Before it gets canceled, the show will be visited by a dynamic duo. It will also be very generous vis-a-vis the aging process.



Both will appear on the June 19th episode, “Leela and the Genestalk.” I’m guessing some throwaway joke will explain how Burt Ward clearly dropped about 100 pounds before he died, and why Adan West’s hair is dark brown. Or maybe those two just make so much money on the convention circuit that they can demand animators give them virtual plastic surgery, which is way cheaper than the real kind and less terrifyingly Joker-ish.
