Futurama is a cult classic that ran from 1999 to 2013 with over 120 episodes. Wouldnt it a great pinball machine? Just looking at the price of the secondary market for Futurama mech, Its ridicules!!!! The Fanbase is here for this IP just look at the sub reddit, r/futurama has almost 474,000 subscribers. The show has a deep cast of characters and dozens of great stories you can pull from. This seems like a home run pin especially with the rising of Generation Y the generation who grew up watching this show.
Simpson pinball is a classic. I would love to show Matt Groening some more love with a Futurama pin.
Let's compare Futurama popularity to other Pins/IPs. I used Reddit subforms as a baseline. Because of its one of the most popular sites on the web with the most deviser base of users.

Sadly, doesn't look like The Munsters have a subreddit... but we're still getting that pin. It's important we begin to look at nostalgia/ classics of the younger generation. They will be the ones buying machines or populating the barcades for the next few generations. I would love to see more games focus around modern classics like Futurama, Archer, or Rick and Morty shows that consider classics and appeal to the growing youth. Sadly, the Munsters won't, Houdini or Iron Maiden doesn't
