NEW YORK, Oct. 27 -- Get ready to jingle all the way with Fry, Leela, Bender and the murderous Robot Santa! Featuring special voice guest appearances by Al Gore and Coolio, the world premiere of "The Futurama Holiday Spectacular" debuts Sunday, November 21 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.

In this festive three-part episode, the Planet Express crew races to preserve the traditional practices of the classic holidays of Xmas, Robanukah and Kwanzaa. Along the way, they encounter the murderous Kringlebot, Al Gore's Head-In-A-Jar, mutated pine trees, droidls, fembot wrestling, albino humping worms, Kwanzaabot and giant space bees, all while learning the true meaning behind the holidays... with an occasional song thrown in for good measure.

"Futurama" follows the life of Philip J. Fry (Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who accidentally stumbles into a freezer on December 31, 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later. In his future home of New New York City, Fry goes to work for the Planet Express Intergalactic delivery company, where he befriends Bender (John DiMaggio), a booze-fueled robot and sets his romantic sights on Leela (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops who enjoys beating him up.
