I know this has probably been talked about already but i can't find it when i do a search so:
What are the things that they accidently left wheels on? they mentioned this in an audio commentary and i have been on the look out ever since but haven't been able to spot anything.

I think they were talking about a specific scene or episode as the intent of the series was to have everything hover, however, it was discovered later that they had actually put in plenty of stuff that had wheels and broke this 'rule' of no wheels. I know the commentary of which you speak of but cannot remember exactly which episode it was from.

But wasn't it Mother's Day where they claimed the technology for the wheel had been lost, right?

Yeah, they tried to have everything hover, but they broke the rule as early as in the second episode. The lunar rover had wheels, and allthough the Crushinator was a tracked robot, it still had trackwheels. But you have to give them probs for trying though.

"The Cryonic woman": Fry and Michelle riding in a horse and carriage. The carriage has wheels.

The wheel is to great of an invention not to use.... That didn't make sense  smile

In Mother's Day, Leela says "I believe it was called 'the wheel'' ". Meanwhile, in The Series Has Landed they use wheels for the carts.  Also clocks and such have wheels inside to turn them and help them work.  There's no way that there aren't wheels in the show and in this future.  And sorry if I'm off topic to this thread, but I needed to point this out.

Clocks don't necessarily have "wheels", they have gears.  big grin

I'd move this to recheck, but seeing as we've established that the writers screwed up . . .
