Futurama Valentine Shirts from Cafe Press

As you know if you are a reader of this blog we are big fans of geekery here.  Our newest family member Fry (or Philip J. Fry)

is named after the sweet, but lazy, 25 year old delivery boy who gets frozen in the year 2000 and thawed in the year 3000 on the television show sci-fi comedy cartoon Futurama.  

See the resemblance, I think our Fry needs a red jacket.

In case you are unfamiliar with Futurama it is a really funny send up of science fiction shows, like my beloved Star Trek. Futurama, is also a great show to watch on Valentine's day because it has a lot of episodes dealing with the holiday and romance in general in a very funny way.   My favorite Futurama Valentine's episode Love and a Rocket has Fry searching for the perfect candy heart to give his crush.  

Other episodes have a slightly more sardonic take on the holiday, as any search of Futurama memes will demonstrate:

Anyway I had a cafe press coupon I received as a promotional offer from an earlier purchase and I had decided to use it to make Fry and Weasley Valentine's shirts, it seemed given Fry's name that Futurama themed shirts would be perfect.  I use the design our own shirt component on the Cafe Press website and by using quotes from the show and some free clip art made the shirts (I apologize for the hideous pictures of me below holding Fry and Weasley was the only way to ensure the shirts could be seen).

Fry's shirt reads: "This concept of "Wuv" confuses and infuriates us."   A reference to the candy hearts episode.   Weasley's reads: "It's All So Complicated with the Flowers, and the Romance, and the Lies Upon Lies."  A reference to Dr. Zoidberg's line in Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love.

Suffice it to say but you have to be a Futurama fan to appreciate these shirts, which is why I love them, and the pugs don't seem to mind wearing them at all.

You can use the cafe press site to many any kind of pet, or human, shirt you would like.  They have a wide range of styles and you can design your own around you favorite sports teams, books, films, or TV shows.  Its a fun way to personalize your own, or your dogs, wardrobe.  Now we are ready for our Valentine's day Futurama episode binge!


  1. I luffs them but... I confess.... we luffs Futurama AND Star Trek!

    Mom says it is us pugs that keep her young at heart - don't tell but today is her birthday and she is 61

  6. The pups look so cute in their shirts. We don't wear stuff. We can't move if we have anything on. Enjoy your Valentine's Day movie binge.

  7. Great idea to make your own designs! Those are funny!

  8. This is epic, Futurama may have moved up the list to being one of my favorite shows ever. Love Fry and Leela's romance :) The doggie definitely needs a red jacket, but I love the "wuv" shirts, too :D

  9. too much cuteness in those photos!

  10. Those are well sweet and funny. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. The dogs look cute in them. I don't think my dogs would like shirts. LOL

  12. Awww, what a great quote to put on a dog's shirt. I think a lot of human emotions and behaves confuse and sometimes even infuriate our pets. Your little guy is growing in leaps and bounds, goodness! You can really see it in the photos where you're holding him.

    Happy Valentine's Day wishes to everyone at your house, dear Kate,
    ♥ Jessica

  13. Love seeing pics of Fry in his new home. He is a very lucky boy!
