As if you need more reason to adore anything related to Back to the Future, the good folks over at Nerdist have got you covered. Billy West, best known for his voicework on Futurama, recently appeared on the Nerdist series Talkin' Toons. The veteran voice actor was given a snippet from the classic 1985 film that featured Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) attempting to convince Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) that he's from the future.
West channeled his #Futurama characters of Professor Farnsworth and Philip J. Fry to recreate the scene and if Paulsen's giggles are any indication, West managed to pull it off flawlessly.
For those interested in comparing West's hysterical interpretation to the actual scene, check out the clip below and you'll see just how fitting each respective Futurama character is with their BTTF counterpart:
While it's virtually impossible to imagine anyone but Michael J. Fox as Marty or Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, listening to what could be with Fry and Farnsworth at the helm of the time-traveling tale is a prospect I am more than okay with. West's enthusiasm in the clip syncs perfectly with the actual scene and I can certainly picture the good Professor rocking Doc's monstrous mind-reading contraption.
Another Fox series, Family Guy, has has their own sci-fi parody success with their take on the Star Wars franchise, so I am all for West and crew potentially reprising their beloved animated roles for a Back to the Futurama (you're welcome, Hollywood) series.
