The origins of the Hypnotoad are unknown, but it’s speculated that he is an alien, mutant, or a product of genetic engineering. It would also appear that he is the only one of his kind on Earth. However, it’s possible that a creature similar in design to the Hypnotoad found on Kif Kroker’s homeworld is part of his ancestry.
The Hypnotoad also has its own television show called Everybody Loves Hypnotoad. It consists of a stationary camera filming the Hypnotoad and his noise continuously. Despite the odd premise behind the show, it ran successfully for over three seasons, possibly because he hypnotized the audience into watching it.
We highly recommed to watch the following YouTube video made by Johnny 2 Cellos. It summarizes The Hypnotoad history very well. And it’s fun to watch.
Thy Hypnotoad appeared in 8 Futurama episodes (including 1 special episode), 2 movies, 1 comics, and finally 1 video game.
The Hypnotoad has even a fanbase outside of the Futurama community. This is not very surprising because the character itself is simply AWESOME. As the slogan says, EVERYBODY LOVES THE HYPNOTOAD.
And here we are.
Our project aims to pay tribute to this awesome and very famous character but in our own way. We are not going to copy the original art, we are only using it as an inspiration for our own, completely independent universe.
If our games or NFT collection make even only one person fall in love with The Hypnotoad, we consider it a win.
