Yeah, but Zoiby can always cut him up and stitch him back together at will. Cubert's used up his "insult" card.

The one Nibbler mystery im curious about is why he wears a diaper when 'loves labours lost' showed that he was litter trained and 'day the earth stood stupid' showed that hes competent enough that he should be able to handle such matters himself.

Well, no-one remembers the day the earth stood stupid and Leela probably thinks he looks cute in it. Mystery solved!

Besides, he clearly adores the attention he gets from Leela--in fact, all the Nibblonians like to be cuddled and tummy-scratched and such in The Day The Earth Stood Stupid--he may...he may LIKE wearing a diaper. EEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeee!

"...which, as we discussed, is strictly a 'comfort' thing."
--Homer

(Besides, I'd rather not think of why there was already a litter-box on the PE Ship before Nibbler was discovered. Jeez, Dr. Z.)

i just always figured it was Leela's way of compensating for a desire to have a baby, but i'm still surprised Nibbler, a highly intelligent being whether anyone else knows it or not actually puts up with wearing the thing, i mean ewww.

he wears the diaper because he's undercover
 humans would get suspicious if he started wearing pants

Oh my yes... Typos suck  tongue

Oh and OT:
Who says that shadow was Nibblers? It could have been another Nibblonian, part of a large plan that was hatched when Fry was born. The responsibility of carrying out this plan pasted down through the generations eventualy landing on Nibblers shoulders(Depending on how long Nibblonians live  tongue )

true, but this one was wearing a cape. and since Nibbler's one of the stars, i just assumed it was him. but that would mean his either really old, or a time traveller. so it was probably a different Nibblonian

The Nibblonians said that their race of people were already 18 years old when the universe was created, so I'm thinking that they age in some weird/funny/contrived sci-fi fashion.

Something further to think about:

The "tribute" to The Time Machine in Space Pilot 3000 may be more than a tribute. The whole Applied Cyrogenics building--or more likely, the room Fry is encapsulated in--may be part of a Nibblonian time machine, which would explain why the return to pre-technological days outside the window didn't result in Fry being thawed out, or why nothing else occuring outside affected him.

(If it's the entire building, then Fry's old girlfriend and the 21st-century chick from The Hip Joint would have had to have been transferred from another part of the country; if it's just the room, that's fine; it can't be the only one in the building to host "frostees." The room would've "materialized" in the modern, secretly-Nibblonian-owned building, in time for the new staff, including one Cyclopian "alien" woman and her horrible boss, to arrive.)

Maybe the Professor's time machine works after all.

Unless...unless...unless Fry's girlfriend is somehow PART of the Nibblonian's infernal machinations...! I...brain...getting hot...I...argleargleargleargl eargle!

You should've equipped your head with "Paradox Absorbing Crumble Zones Tm".

This whole thing really opens up a big file of opportunities, and the coolest part is that it was all done delibrately, and Matt and David takes special delight in that fact on the DVD.

This sort of brilliant long-term plotting is one of the most outstanding characteristics of Futurama, it really shows how much the creators and writers care about this show. They wan't it to be soo much more than just "Simpsons in the future" (God forbid that ever to happen), this is almost epic in it's proportions, that sort of stuff that transforms a brilliant show into a cult. (IMNSHO)

Too bad FOX wouldn't be able to spot sheer nrilliance, even if it jumped down their throats and ripped out their hearts!

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!
