In 30% Iron chef when bender is training to be a chef with spargo, he peels a potato using a lightsaber, with a helmet covering his eyes.

Reference to attack of the clones, when the little kids are learning with yoda, methinks

More likely a reference to the original Star Wars (remember that one?), when Obi-Wan was training Luke aboard the Falcon.

Edit: Attack of the Clones came out a month after that episode first aired.

Has no-one mentioned the Professor's hologram in 'A Clone of My Own'? He even takes the disk out just like Leia does!

And in 'The Lesser of Two Evils': Star Wars 9- Yoda's Bar Mitzvah

Yeah I know but i just watched attack of the clones today, so the reference was fresh in my mind. 

As for the second point, i live in england, so that episode was aired after attack of the clones came out, so its an easy mistake for me to make

In Futurestock, the monster at Giorgio Armonster resembles a rancor.

The Asteroid Clusters Bender experiences in Godfellas.

When Han and Company enter the Aldeeran System and discover Aldeeran has been replaced by a massive Asteriod Field, they experience the same thing (a minor shower of Asteriods hitting the Falcon).

Strange that people in both Star Wars/Futurama forums have not mentioned one of the more obvious ones...the 3D projection of Vergon 6 in Love's Labour's Lost in Space is definitely a reference to the 3D projection of Endor in VI: RoTJ.



They even comment on it being a Star Wars reference in the Audio commentary  smile
