MonCon 3018 is one of the goals in Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. It is the first main goal of the MonCon 3018 event.
- The Monser Convention comes to town.
- 10 50
Sorry I'm late for work. I hope you did my job for me. It's a madhouse out there!
Yeah, the big monster convention's in town this weekend, so there's a lot more traffic than usual.
MonsterCon's this week? That explains the traffic. But how do you explain all the monsters?
Hey, Amy, MonsterCon is in town. Wanna check it out?
Sure! I always wanted to see the Hamburglar.
Um... I don't think the Hamburglar is a monster.
He wasn't before, but last summer he killed and ate ten kids.
- Fry and Amy visit MonCon.
- Have Fry Check Out MonCon for 3 SWAG Tickets (1h 0m 0s)
- Have Amy Attend a MonCon Panel for 12 SWAG Tickets (4h 0m 0s)
- 10 50
You're actually going to MonsterCon? After I specifically complained about how the traffic made me late for work?
Yeah, it could be fun. Plus you hate going to work, remember?
I don't hate going to work. I hate DOING work.
Being late means I miss the morning Zoidberg-kicking.
MonsterCon is great! I just met the entire cast of "Beasts of No Nation"! How was the Japanese nuclear mutant panel?
It was fine until Gro-Gan the giant atomic gorilla turned violent and started wreaking havoc.
The schedule calls him a friendly monster, but he sure gets mad when you ask about the harassment allegations.
- The Pain Monster discusses his dilemma.
- 10 50
Guys, look! It's the Pain Monster! If you don't pay your taxes on time, you're forced to spend a weekend with him.
Not this year. They revoked my visa, along with most of the other monsters.
But you're a crucial part of the Earthican tax enforcement system.
I thought so too, but according to the Chairman of the House Finance Committee, I'm part of the regulatory bureaucracy that's handcuffing the economy.
Did you hear? After MonsterCon's over, Earth is going to deport all the monsters!
Good riddance, I say! The last thing we need is monsters jamming up our streets.
No! That's just the kind of negative monster stereotype we have to fight back against!
I miss the good old days when we battled monsters instead of monster stereotypes.
- Fry goes to Father Changstein for help.
- 10 50
Father! All the monsters are going to get kicked off the planet. Is there anything we can do?
My son, the First Amalgamated Church tries to shelter the persecuted, but we cannot offer sanctuary to monsters.
But they ARE persecuted! Many of them come from planets with dictatorial leaders.
I don't deny that they're persecuted. I deny that they'll fit in the bunkbeds we set up in the reception hall.
We need to generate some positive PR so the monsters can stay on the planet.
You're not going to solve the monster immigration problem in the next couple of days. Smarter people than you have tried.
But have dumber people than me tried?
...Wow, that actually kind of makes sense. By all means, give it a shot.
- Fry starts a petition.
- Have Fry Gather 3 Signatures (4h 0m 0s)
- Collect 5 more Petition Signatures
- 10 50
I have an idea. If I start a petition and get enough signatures, maybe the government will be forced to let the monsters stay.
I've never seen you so passionate. Most people hate monsters.
They have every right to be here. They shouldn't be treated unequally just because they look different or devour people.
I wouldn't lead with that argument.
I got five people to sign my petition, plus one monster. I'm ready to take this issue to the White House!
Six doesn't sount like a lot of signatures to me.
I got a lot more than six. The monster who signed was Tako-Ra, the beast with a Million Hands!
He was signing his head shot in the autograph area, so I just went through the line a million times.
- Nixon grants asylum.
- 10 50
I've received your petition, and I've decided to grant all the monsters asylum.
In return I want you to mobilize your millions of petitioners to convince Congress to grant me immunity for any crimes I've committed. Which is none.
There weren't millions of petitioners. The Beast with a Millions Hands signed several times.
You know Tako-Ra? Great, then have him devour Congress. Oh, and the FBI too.
I can't believe you helped all those monsters stay on Earth. They're going to cause all kinds of problems
But their collective ugliness will make us look more handsome by contrast.
Let's find a couple and hang around outside Victoria's Secret.
- The Pain Monster thanks Fry.
- Have Fry Welcome Monsters ()
- 10 50
Thank you, Fry, for standing up for monsters everywhere.
No problem, Pain Monster. It was the right thing to do.
This might be a good time to mention that I missed the tax filing deadline, so if the IRS makes me spend a weekend with you, I hope you'll go easy.
Sure. Just file by the end of the month and I'll let you go with a wedgie.
Mind if I get a picture with you?
You got it. After all you've done for me, it's the least I can do.
You wanna try a wacky photo? I can swallow you whole and you can take the picture from inside my mouth.
...Let's just take a normal one. You know, with more than a talon's length between us.
