'Futurama' gets its own quote search engine

Ever since The Simpsons got an encyclopedic search engine through Frinkiac, many TV fans have been wondering one thing: where's the Futurama version? Relax, it's here. The creators of Frinkiac have launched Morbotron, a quote search tool that lets you dig through every season of Fry's adventures (complete with 861,414 screenshots) to create meme-worthy pictures and animated GIFs. You can find every moment that Professor Farnsworth has good news, Morbo proclaims doom for the human race, or Bender invites someone to bite his backside.

The new site also reflects an upgrade to the team's search code. It can now pluck dialogue from videos in multiple aspect ratios (good for titles like The Simpsons Movie), and it's more of a generic search platform than a Matt Groening-specific engine. There's a "show or two more" that will get similar treatment -- this isn't the end by a longshot.
