hmm, i never knew that some considered 'the honking' out of canon. i love that episode, as it is only one of two episodes that feature gypsy-bot.

I thought I should tell you all.  On the Infosphere in the episodes section, there's some promotional pictures of Ghosts in the Machine and storyboards, too.

Not really meant to be posted here, but in the Honking Hermes says that the last ghost died however many years ago, then Bender replies with the last HUMAN ghost, yet in Proposition Infinity there is a (presumably) a human ghost in the crowd? (With the Horse)

The last human ghost in the castle is perhaps what they meant. Either that, or The Honking isn't canon.

Honking Hermes.

Its probably not a human ghost.  IIRC it was just your average floating amorphous blob type ghost.  Maybe that's what a shape shifter ghost looks like.

I don't recall that ghost looking very human, and even if it was that wouldn't make Honking non-cannon, it would just make Hermes wrong. I doubt he would have meant just within the castle.

Hermes and Bender seem to be in agreement on it, like it's something they both know. I'd say it's likely that they meant the last human ghost in the castle. Although, The Honking's canonicity is still doubtful, as the treatment of "dead" robots (and robot death in general) has been vastly different in other episodes.

They didn't mean the last human ghost in the castle, that would be bizarre writing.

They'd have written the line to be something like "The last ghost in this castle died hundreds of years ago" or something similar.

Also, of course it's canon. It's an episode and it doesn't specifically happen out of canon -therefore it's canon -bad continuity or not.

But remember, this happened in Futurama Universe #1; Bender, Fry, and the Professor travelled forwards to Universe #3, which means the episodes before that no longer apply.

I always thought that's what that line meant...though I am admittedly bizarre in my own right.

I don't really see it that way. Because Fry can still find Leela at the Cavern on the Green in Universe 3--same as he would have found her there in Universe 1, had he not gotten in the time machine in the first place--I assume that everything leading up to that particular point occurred in Universe 3 the exact same way it occurred in Universe 1. I don't see TLPJF as a throwing-away of all that was once canon; I think that would be kind of sucky.

I know people debated this a whole lot when the episode initially aired, and I mostly stayed out of those discussions because it was all too science-y for my puny human brain--but I never really thought that the writers meant to invalidate the preceding 72-plus episodes by having Farnsworth and Bender and Fry travel through time. The only thing they changed in Universe 3 was Eleanor Roosevelt's existence, the ramifications of which I doubt would be felt in the year 2999, when the series begins. Butterfly effect my ass!

I always thought it meant the last ghost in the castle too, because I thought it would have been even more bizarre that the last human ghost died hundreds of years ago, despite the fact that humans still die in the year 3000 (or 3001 if you want to be really nit-picky about years).

Hm, humans die in the year 3000?
But they don't really die, since they live longer than 160 years and are brought to the death star when they reach this age.. but humans still can die by accidents. On the other side, i think brains can be saved even after a human died (Prof.:"..they saved Hitler's brain.." so there don't be any ghosts because they can't grow?

Yes it does... It's still the same Universe, only difference is Eleanor Roosevelt and the original Fry, Bender and Professor are dead....

I was just thinking that. It must be a Minority Report parody, with "seers" who predict crimes. That would explain "Oracle" in the title...

In which case, this episode just got a lot more interesting...

The toon character might appear but since Brittany Murphy died it's doubtful it would be a speaking role.

Btw, why do you link the pictures from imgur? You can do that directly from the comedy central server.

Sorry about that, didn't know. I've relinked it to the CC server now.

Looks like Terry and Ipgee from Applied Cryogenics will be returning.

Yeah, all it means is that everyone is now a duck.

So it turns out that we've been misspelling Ipji's name (not actually Ipgee) also seems like Lou's name was forgotten by the production staff, that came from a sketch in special features right?

So what you're saying is that there's a new universe created after the last one and that we're not sure which time paradoxes will be created if they travel sideways in time relative to the forward time machine?

That has got to be the stupidest thing I've read on here in a long time.  Explain to me the very simple question:  How do they then crush Bender, Fry and Farnsworth if the prior episodes no longer applied?  What you are suggesting is that Fry should never have arrived in the 31st century in this 'universe #3' as you call it.

No, winna. I think you know what I'm saying. Please don't make me say anything else about it. It's becoming quite tedious.
