I am not contained between my hat and my boots.

The Planet Express delivery company takes a delivery to a planet called 'Equestria'. Of course it doesn't go smoothly. It never does with a crew like theirs. What happens in Equestria doesn't stay in Equestria, though, and their adventure is far from over when they leave... because the adventure of a certain six ponies is just beginning.

A Futurama and My Little Pony crossover, featuring all your favorite characters from both series. Written (more or less) from the perspective of a Futurama episode, where the MLP universe is contained in one solar system in the Futurama universe.
When two of the best cartoons in the world collide, buckle up and get ready for one heck of a ride!

Many thanks to my proofreaders, GingerLuna, Knight of Cerebus, and JeffCvt. They've helped a lot in polishing this fic.

THIS IS SILLY :derpyderp1: :facehoof:

(I have to say, though, a bunch of the gags don't really work as well in text.)

2743790
Indeed it is. :twilightsheepish: I wrote this one because I was tired of doing serious dramas for a while.
(And yeah... I did the best I could, but it's true, some TV gags don't carry well into text. :ajsleepy:)

Love everything about this. It captures the tone of the show perfectly. I'm kind of confused by the loose end of Rainbow Dash's new horn (it's never conclusively stated whether it's functional or not), and I would have liked to see some more interaction from Scootaloo, who seems to spend most of the story sitting around like an inanimate object. Other than these minor gripes, excellent work overall.

I originally intended for it to be removed/broken off by the end... but then I thought, why not have it stay to add a bit of random fun in? :rainbowwild:

and I would have liked to see some more interaction from Scootaloo, who seems to spend most of the story sitting around like an inanimate object.

Yeah... she is kind of more like an object than a character in this story.
She'll get the spotlight in my next story, though, in a much bigger way.

Other than these minor gripes, excellent work overall.

Thanks :twilightsmile:

This story is genius! :pinkiehappy: Really well thought out, really funny and really well written!

This was honestly my first thought upon reading the description:

Good news, everypony!

Shall read and tell you what I think when I have the time. As one of the Futurama Nerdlingers I already approve regardless.


Want proof I'm a Nerdlingers?

I'm the guy who came up with the Comic Transcripts project on the Futurama Madhouse and also the founder of the Futurama Crossover group on this site.

2744925
Why not?

:rainbowlaugh:

2745364
Thanks! :twilightsheepish: I tried.

2745375
Not coincidentally, it's also the first words of the story. ^.^

2745809
Oh yeah, I recognize you -- I saw you when I first joined that group (so I could remember to put this story in it).
I hope you enjoy it. So far I've gotten pretty good reviews on how I've portrayed the Futurama characters.

I've been waiting for this! :pinkiesmile:

Great story, but now Scoots is mommyless! :raritycry:

So many references! I love it.

2746870
Yeah, I've been waiting for this too! :twilightsmile: Sorry it took so long. :twilightsheepish:

2746982
A reference to Rainbowcorn I supsect?

2748225
Well, she's got Rainbow and the CMC... don't worry too much. :scootangel:

2749237
Because why not? :rainbowdetermined2:

2749554
Did you catch all of them, I wonder?
I've got spaceballs, doctor who, hitchhiker's guide...

2749951
Exactly what I was thinking when I was figuring out which were applicable... turns out I get to use the maximum number of tags! :rainbowwild:

2752069

Nope. Just my joy at finding another crossover I want to read.

Silly but fun.
The epilogue ending was ridiculous but whatever.
At least the ponies survived the horrific stupidity of Furlturama's universe.

Great story. Kind of bum that it's over already. Any chance of making this a series, or a sequel at the very least.

2752814

Silly but fun.

Must... not... make... bad... pun!

Anyway, yeah, that's pretty much what I was going for in this one, so I'll take that as a compliment. :rainbowwild:

The epilogue ending was ridiculous but whatever.

^.^

At least the ponies survived the horrific stupidity of Furlturama's universe.

Of course!
(Can you imagine how many more tags I'd need if some died? I would have had to use all the tags! ...Well, except for romance.)

2753016
Well, I'll sequel my more popular fics first (unless this becomes one of my more popular fics).
But, if you're patient, I do have an idea in the pipeline that Twilight would build a robot to help around AJ's farm.... A bending robot. I think you can see where that's going: semi-ponified Bender on a rampage in Equestria. It should be fun.

2753498

I am also appalled at the lack of Nibbler.
I wish it was him instead of Hedonism Bot who stowed away.
NIbbler in Equestria now pls thx.
I think I may be in diabetic shock from thinking about it...

Would also make a great sequel hook.

2754117
Well, I did mention him in passing when Fry was complaining about Leela's proliferation of alien pets...

But Nibbler in Equestria? :twilightoops:
The only question is, how many ponies will Nibbler eat before Celestia sends him to the moon? I'm guessing a lot.

2754609

Hey, he's about more than eating things! Nibbler, and his species the Nibblonians, are an ancient race of advanced beings who protect the universe from harm using an array of amazing and mysterious powers. He is as old as Discord. He poops dark matter. I think eating ponies would be about the least interesting thing if he were there. Not that he would eat non-threatening sapients.

2754731
Well, okay... but still, I can't include every character. It would get too crazy.

2755277
Thanks! :twilightsmile:

I love this story! So much more tales of craziness could come from this.

Celestia is going to have to introduce her world to the intergalactic community at some stage for it's survival. Like joining the DOOP for example.

And hey if she does bring Equestria into an intergalactic civilization soon, the mane six will meet the Planet Express staff again and maybe become friends? XD

Also take note in Futurama Humans date aliens. So why not Alien Ponies.... Too much?

I love the Zapp parts. I did my own short story called: Ambassador Zapp Brannigan where Zapp has the job of introducing Equestria into the intergalactic community.

I have to say, I think you nailed the voices off all the characters, even in the little details like the interaction between Zoidberg and Hermies. Over all it was a fun silly crossover that did a good job of working with both shows and I think went on exactly long enough. Great story! :eeyup:

2764286
Well, I don't have any immediate plans for sequels or anything to this...
So if somebody else wants to use the same universe and write more... *nudge* :trollestia:

2770839
Thanks! ^.^ I tried hard to get the characters' voices to be in character... guess it payed off.
(Still couldn't manage to work in Hemes's "Sweet _____ of _____" or "_____ as a greensnake ____ a sugarcane _____" sayings in though. :applejackunsure: )

2773300
Thanks! :twilightsmile:
And give me some upvotes if you like it so much. :twilightsheepish:
*eyes feature box jealously, wanting to get into it again*

Just how dense was this Fry thing?

Twilight, you would have to watch about half of the series to answer that question.

(Still couldn't manage to work in Hemes's "Sweet _____ of _____" or "_____ as a greensnake ____ a sugarcane _____" sayings in though. :applejackunsure: )

"Sweet ponies of my homies" came to mind. But I loved Zoidberg moments, vary well done. I tip my duct tape hat to you good sir.

2957666
Thanks! :twilightsmile: Zoidberg's actually a lot of fun to write for, I think.

Okay, now I really want to hear Twilight's song about Hermes' office. Fun fic so far, definitely faving!

3376833
Thanks! :twilightsmile: Glad you're enjoying it!

Solar Flair, It's so punny!

3470969
Oh, that one?
:twilightsheepish:
I'm pretty sure I stole it from a non-pony sci-fi book... can't remember which one now, though. :rainbowhuh:

So did my edits on this story get to you alright? I'm glad it managed to find its way to print and an audience, at least.

3476093
Oh yes, or I wouldn't have listed you in the description. :twilightsmile:

Thanks for that!

3479832 I noticed they had when I saw the Twilestia joke was still there :rainbowwild:

3479845

...and 1000 readers without being featured. ^.^
I've been told that's impossible, so to do that, it must be good. :twilightsheepish:
(And everybody likes twilestia jokes!)

3479858 holy shoot. 1000 is quite a few. Nice job :twilightsmile:

I haven't even read it, but I know its good

3684808
Wow. ^.^
How do you know that?

I love Futurama! I've seen almost every episode like twice. :twilightsmile: You really did a good job here of capturing the characters of Futurama as they would in this situation. You also did a good job of replicating the humor and gags of Futurama.

“Aw, but I promised Bender we'd go to the Neil Diamond concert!”

Is this the same Neil Diamond concert Fry mentions in "The Farnsworth Parabox". So this definitely takes place sometime before that episode. See, I know my Futurama.:pinkiehappy:

Off to the side of the passageway, a light green alien nudged the one next to her, whispering loudly, “See, Bon Bon! I told you they exist!”

That really killed me! :rainbowlaugh: Lyra the human lover spotting Fry! Plus it's even done like a Futurama style gag.

The exotic bubble bath that made her mane glow and wave so magnificently was not easy to come by, but the luxurious feel of it made the difficultly so worthwhile.

So that's why her mane is like that. :trollestia:

He wasted no time in ratcheting out his arms to grab the shining plunder. The shoes and crown fit into his chest compartment with ease, though it was starting to get full now.

Oh my gosh, Bender just stole Celestia's royal regalia! :trollestia:

On top of that, Leela absconded with Scootaloo! :scootangel: I don't doubt at all that she would react in this way and do that.

And Celestia has her own spaceship. :trollestia:

Well, I'm loving this. Let's see how things get worse for everyone.

“Is it just me, or is the animation style here different?” Pinkie asked as the six ponies descended the Solar Flair's ramp.

And here's Pinkie Pie to break the fourth wall for us! :pinkiehappy:

She slammed the lever all the way down, and immediately, the ship shot forward and upward at a ludicrous speed.

Spaceballs?

Of course, Fluttershy is going to befriend Zoidberg. :yay: I love Zoidberg, and I love Fluttershy. It's a match made on Yivo!

And I thought Twilicorn was bad enough. And I just thought Zoidberg was a bad doctor. He has become the worst thing ever by making Rainbow Dash an alicorn! :rainbowhuh::rainbowlaugh:

It was really fun seeing the rest of the cast of Futurama interact with the ponies.

In what seemed like only ten seconds, the pony shot back through the door – once again bowling over the unfortunate Leela, who had only just managed to get up. As she soared up into the spacious landing bay, though, everyone could see the smaller orange pony she was proudly holding up.

So, Rainbow Dash rescued Scootaloo in... wait for it... Ten seconds flat! :rainbowlaugh::rainbowdetermined2:

The conclusion of this story was made oh so perfect by the unexpected appearance of Captain Zapp Brannigan. I wouldn't have pegged him for a clopper but it doesn't surprise me. :pinkiecrazy:

This story was so funny! It had me laughing throughout. I'm a hard core Futurama fan, and I can say without a doubt that you've perfectly captured the feel of the show and the characters and humor. It was just great. I'd love to see more of this. See the ponies run around in other parts of the Futurama universe like Mars and run into Omicronians and Nixon's Head and other stuff. Man, this was fun on a bun! :raritywink: Keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

P.S. What's with all the bubble baths? :twilightoops:

3686162 Well guh! Obviously, MLP plus Futurama equals deliciousness! :pinkiehappy:
