Good detail, robo_puppy_girl!

I'm gonna be a little nit-picking now:

We see the "bad computer" in Mars University:


However, the classic Apple all-in-one computers don't open this way. To open them, the back cover has to be removed (with a veeeery long screwdriver):

Yeah, that's my Mac SE, I just don't know where I've put the mainboard... ;-)

And don't argue that they won't have a 1987 computer in the year 3000!

Double post for TOTP:

In 'the day the earth stood stupid':

You can see she has NO fangs there^^

There's another picture to show she wasn't just hiding them under her lip^^

Taa-Daa

The only explanation I can think of is that they can retract their fangs...

Maybe she has to wear false ones, having lost her fangs in a heroic mission (biting the armored rump of an armadillo-alien that was enthralled to the Brainspawn's stupifaction ray, thus motivating it to stumble on the button for, and thus fire, the wide-beam forward schmazers, incinerating the vanguard of the Brainspawn and convincing them that the armored aliens had developed a brainray-shield, thus causing them to retreat); now she wears dentures, and when times are tense, she plays with them, sliding them out of place and rolling them around with her tongue.

That or she can make them transparent to enhance her natural cuteness.

This isn't really a goof as such, but a question: I noticed this in PYHOMS today, that when Fry is trying to pull his head off Amy's body and is obviously hurting himself, it would only be logical that Amy would also share his pain seeing as the nerves are all connected from Fry's head to Amy's body, but Amy notices nothing!

Comments?

Also, in ABBFT the professor says that the logging into AOL was successful and they were online. But, in a previous episode in season one I believe they already had the internet   hmpf

Yep... They've had the Internet back in A Big Piece of Garbage.
My explanation: The "Internet" - which we know from today and which is mainly used to download pornography - is just as common as let's say a phone. Probably it's even free.
However, there is the "other Internet" (which might just be some add-on), in which people can go using these fancy MoCap-suits and VR goggles. This Internet is something you have to pay for and log on using an AOL dial-up account ;-)

I spotted one. I can be fu bothered to get the screen shot but in I Dated A Robot, when the ugo chick was copied instead of Lucy Lui, look at her pupils. They're round. And a strict rule is that only humans have round pupils whilst robots have square pupils.

Watching "Leela's Homeworld" earlier, Leela's parents put a note on Leela that is written in Alienese, and successfully convinced the guy at the Orphanarium that she was an alien. There is a goof, however, because she is wearing a name tag written in English.

I think it's a techinical goof which none of the animators picked up before, because if they were trying to show that she was being passed off as an alien, then why would they give her a name tag written in english?

I think I understand what ivan_fry is trying to say.  Leela's parents wrote the note in Alienese so that people would think she's an alien, but why, since Leela's name is in English, would an Alien write the note in Alienese if they knew English.

It's more like a goof by the characters within the show, than by the writers or animators of said show.  It's kind of like a flaw in Leela's parents' plan that was luckily overlooked by the guy at the orphanarium.

Close to my point.
Within the continuity of the show, Morris and Munda wanted their daughter to grow up as an alien in human society, but with her real name - which was about the only meaningful they could give her.
Munda wrote the note in alienese to give Leela a "cover" as an alien, but the nametag in English so there was no question of her name.

If she'd written both in alienese, Leela wouldn't have the family name: If she wrote both in English, bye bye "cover."

I'll just ooze back out under the door now...

Thats a fair point...


oh yeah, if Nibbler is old (I forget how old)i.e. more than 1000 years old, then how come the vet claims Nibbler is only 5 years old from the rings in his teeth..

not so much a goof, merely a thing to point out for you to digest in your two-way digestive systems...that is all..

although...I guess those rings in Nibblers teeth might not really count for much...hmmm *strokes imaginary beard*

The vet didn't conclusively say Nibbler was 5 years old, only that "if he's anything like the common tree, the rings might indicate his age". Nibbler is nothing like a common tree.

Plus the vet was still woozy from the gazelle kick. Buttom line he didn't know squat about Nibbler.

@SpaceCase: Oh, I agree with you about why her name is in English and the note in Alienese(I believe her parent did that purposefully), but I also see where ivan_fry was coming from.  I was just trying to help explain his point.

To answer the question about Nibbler's teeth, perhaps there is some similarity to the common tree. We do not know for certain how long Nibblonians live; it could be for millions of years. if that is so, then maybe the rings count his age by thousands. It's possible, if not probable.

Hey, even maybe Nibblonians are related to trees or something  big grin

Oh yeah, just a point out. In The Honking, whn Bender becomes a were-car-he doesnt speak for the whole time- as though he is possessed by the were-car and therefore does not have ny control over what he does or what he says. However, when he is with the satan car (forgive me my dear peelers, but my short memory strikes again), he says' oh, i feel like a car in a candy store' as though he still has his old persona of Bender as a robot.

Just a point out, not a goof really. I mean, he could be able to retain his own personality as a car whilst still being able to talk as himself. I dunno. *shrugs*

I know a few goofs. Near the end of Bender Gets Made, Leela crashes the PE Ship into the PE Building. But a second later when she is getting her patch taken off you can see the ship in the hangar.

Also in A Byclops Built for Two, when they just get off the net and Fry is dancing, there is no PE ship in the hanger. I would back this up with screens but I'm too damn lazy to get them.

They say in one episode that there is only one parallel universe. Yet in "Farnsworth's Parabox" there are many parallel universes.

That's only because the Farnsworths create more parallel universes during The Farnsworth Parabox.

There's a question to ponder that might need to bein another thread, though: did the Professors Farnsworths create the parallel universes, or merely boxes containing them?  There's evidence either way, although I'm not sure if boxing an existing Universe is more or less likely than creating one from scratch inside a box.

We'll have to attempt to create another box containing our universe! Doy!

Is this possible if the universe is actually contained in the box? No, this is only possible if the box is a gateway. But then, if the box is just a gateway, the entire universe wouldn't get destroyed if the box were thrown in the sun. As we see in I Dated a Robot, the Cowboy Universe (which I will call Universe α ) is easily accessible with only a spaceship. Perhaps Universe α is actually half of Universe A, and is a slightly different mirror image of our half. That would explain why Bender could keep on traveling traveling forever in Godfellas. Both 'Universes' could strech into infinity on opposite sides of each other. All the other universes, Universe 1, 2, 3, et cetera, perhaps only exist on another dimensional plane, an undiscovered corner of Universe Aα, or perhaps on the other end of the aforementioned infinity.

    Not exactly.
    Note that the PE crew, er, our PE crew never actually enter the parallel universe. As they only look at it from the ‘scenic viewpoint’ I suspicion it is not physically accessible.
    Farnsworth’s boxes, allow one to actually enter another universe; parallel, perpendicular, alternate, whatever!

    Uhm…
    • Existing on “another dimensional plane,” is not incompatible with cosmological theory.
    • Were these “other” universes in “an undiscovered corner of Universe Aα,” they wouldn’t be other universes, but part of universe Aα.
    • Infinity, by definition, has no end, so it cannot have an “other end,” much less that there can be anything there.
