Hmmm... in the opening credits, the Statue of Liberty is holding a lazer gun. Then in "Space Pilot 3000" she's holding a part of the transport tubes. Then in "When Aliens Attack" and some other episodes, she's holding a torch. ...............what is up with that?   eek

Maybe on when certain Futuristic events take place the object held in the hand is changed to fit the mood or theme.

The wizard strikes again! Just like how Fry sold his clothes to the pawnshop in "A Head in the Polls" and then got them back in the next scene, these things just happen.

Maybe there is more than one Statue of liberty in the year 3000. The original was destroyed in the first alien invasion in "Space Pilot 3000". The New New Yorkers liked the look of the statue so much, they made several copies for NNY, including the 3 seen.

One of the copies must've ended up at Monument Beach in "When Aliens Attack".

Fry either bought some more (The point?) or had a spare set of clothes.

So either he bought back his clothes from the pawnshop for more money, or he had an identical set of 20th century clothes. I'm telling ya, it's the wizard. Probably just when the plot suits them , the writers and animators change things around. The crew still says "ask" a lot instead of "aks," even though it's an archaic pronunciation like "Christmas."

Perhaps the whole statue is holographic and is changed from time to time. There could be a thin solid frame inside to support the tube.

Maybe it's something along the lines of the hair bot from LotF.

Wouldn't it be funny if he ended up modeling those clothes on billboards during some "Grunge" fashion craze!  I wish I a writer because I could come up with some fanfic on this!

the simple answer? it being a tv show and all, they simply dont worry about minor details, and just write in what ever suits the storyline... but then again, it isnt any fun to put deep and meaningful thoughts if u take this train of thought

That is true about how one minute a character will be wearing one set of clothes and then another in the next minute. Remember in "Love and Rocket" when the ship went nuts and was going to go into the quazar? Leela was wearing her pajamas and then the next minute they were in the shower trying to think of a plan to stop the ship and Leela had her new uniform on. I mean how did she possibly have the time to go and get changed?
