Yes, but usually its not the main news anchors and if it was the cameras are usually held over the shoulder, or in the future, hovering.

But these cameras look like the ones the have in studios.

In Luck Of The Fryrish when Bender is about to open the Ronco Record Vault , he cracks his fingers. They make a sound like a humans hands. As if he had bones in his fingers. But hey thats just splitting hairs. It's not really a goof.

This also might have been spotted b4 but in the first episode (space pilot 3000) when fry and bender are running from leela and they run into the cell thing with the heads of famous criminals on the shelfs they want to get out but cant. Bender bends the bars but then when we see bender seconds l8r talking to fry (when he says "I'm unstoppable" and his arms fall off) we see the bars behind him and they are unbent. Sorry I dragged this out a bit

dawoodz-I went and had a look and lol they arnt bent either. good catch.

beanbeanbean!- lol it does ey. the crack is made when bubbles burst in the fliud around a joint so maybe there were bubbles in his oil or something which made the crack when he bent the joints in his fingers? good catch I didnt even think about that

There are alot of sounds Bender makes that sound human. Like at the end of The 30% Iron Chef Bender goes [clap clap (human sound)] who wants dinner? cooked with pleanty of 'confidence'

Not the exact quote but i'm tired. Leave me alone.

And it's not a shot in LA because a fire truck goes past them and the camera follows it bringing the focus on the Planet Express building.

Check it out. Thank me later.

I just want to post this again cos it wasn't up for long before a new page started so I think it should get the aire time it deserves.

Some really clever person may prove me wrong but I'm only 15 and have a feeble mind. In roswell tht ends well when fry is microwaving pop-corn the machine goes wacko and emmits micro-waves (I think if not this argument is pointless). But microwaves work becasue the microwaves they emmot are set to certain frequiences which allow water molecules to gain thermal energy and thus cook the food. If futurama followed the same physical laws qunt fry have been cooked frm the inside - or am I jus a crazy loon who looks on the physical side of a none physical cartoon world?

Well, yes, you are a crazy loon.  Welcome to the club!

But I'm going to try to be really clever.  (Good luck.)  You are correct that microwaves emit radiation that is intended to heat up water molecules.  That's why it takes forever to heat up a glass of water in a microwave, while heating up, say, fish, takes less time.

But but!  Fry put metal into the microwave.  If you ever try this (and you should NEVER try this) you will see a catastrophe.  On the commentary to Roswell somebody (Billy West, I think) describes what happened when he put a can of soup in his microwave.  Armageddon was what he compared it to.  And that's probably being kind.

Point is, if you put metal into a microwave, disaster will follow.  Granted, it probably won't make everything smell blue, or move you backwards in time.  But it will make you rue -- oh, how you'll rue -- the day you put the metal in.

lol thanks tom uu seem like a decent guy who isnt up his ass.

I know people who put rice puddin' in the microwave and then mix the skin with the cooler rice stuff get really scolded when it blows up. Maybe they should use tht instead of A bombs! (or maybe not).

Anyway thanks 4 the explanation

In the episode 'cyclops built for two' when asked why he had all his weddings on the same day the cyclops dude says;

"you know how much it costs to rent a tux tht changes shape?"

...but if his weddings were all on different days he wudn't need a tux tht changed shape. AMEN.

ok ive thought of something...
(but before I write this ill apoligise for very bad spelling and wrong quotes)
in 'insane in the mainframe' when bender and fry are about to be sentenced, judge whitey (or what ever his name is) says to take fry to the CRIMINALY INSANE HUMAN ASYLUM. the gaurd said that the asylum has been full ever since the judge ruled being poor as a MENTAL ILLNESS.

Im saying that the poor people were sent to a MENTAL ASYLUM not a CRIMINALY INSANE ASYLUM so why would the "poor being a mental illness" factor make the CRIMINALY INSANE ASYLUM full?

(again i apoligise for the spelling mistakes [because i know there are a lot of them])

Here’s a thought:

IT WAS A JOKE!  evil laugh

[SC dials thermostat down a thousand Kelvin]

Anyone who knows anything about the show knows the writers will never let little things like continuity, logic, or common sense get in the way of a good gag.  no no

Actually, the writers generally tried their best to follow continuity and, to an extent, logic and common sense.  Such as, they got all worked up because the previous crew was (in the pilot) supposed to have been killed by space wasps, while in a later episode (The Sting) they're killed by space bees.  They finally decided the new story was more important than the original sight gag.  Which makes sense.  (But it's also fun to try to reconcile the two episodes.  That's what fans are for!)

The tux excuse, as they sort of admit on the DVD commentary, was an explanation (and yes, as you all point out, kinda lame) for why all the brides could converge on Leela's wedding, and Fry (and Bender, of course) could save the day.

Frankly, I don't understand how that shape-changing alien cricket thought he could have five (or was it four? No, five! -- time for me to go back and check.  Hooray!) different brides, none of whom knew about one another even though they lived so close together.

I mean, if Alcazar hadn't thought ahead to how he would handle so many brides after the wedding, why do we think he would be smart enough not to have the weddings on the same day?  My own explanation is that Al was just plain stupid and cheap.  But fans of "Married with Children" might disagree.  No?  Thought not.  wink

to keep this topic rolling, ill post my question/goof from before.

in 'insane in the mainframe' when bender and fry are about to be sentenced, judge whitey (or what ever his name is) says to take fry to the CRIMINALY INSANE HUMAN ASYLUM. the gaurd said that the asylum has been full ever since the judge ruled being poor as a MENTAL ILLNESS.

Because "mental asylum" and "criminally insane asylum" is basically the same thing, ie. psychiatric hospitals. The only difference is a tighter than usual security in sections containing criminals.

this may have been discussed before, but i found an error in I second that emotion. When Leela gets tied to the pole, you know they rip her tank top?

when she is freed from the pole, her tank top is perfectly intact.....

Here's one for you.

In Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdle's , Bender spits a ball of paper at Fry. But this cant be possible for him to produce spit because in AOI 2 when he becomes human and tests his new body , he spits and its brand new to him.

If that makes sense.

But im just splitting hairs again.

bbb!-hmm, sounds about right, i cant even think of an explenation for that.

*sorry to butt in over beanbeanbean!'s goof but i know ill forget this*

in 'the cyber house rules', when bender has finished showing the orphans to leela, they all run into bed. the girl orphan in the bottom right corner has blonde hair. The camera cuts back to bender and leela. when the camera shows the shot of the orphans in their beds again, the little girl with the blonde hair now has brown hair.

Maybe Bender had the ability to spit installed between the two episodes. Maybe he stole spit for orphans - remember, he's already stole blood from Fry. Maybe being able to spit was a new experence for the human Bender, but a normal for the robotic one.

Not really a goof, but in Mars University last night I began to wonder. What is Leela doing on Mars while Fry and Amy are taking classes and the Prof. is teaching?

Maybe the ophans swapped places really fast to fool us viewers, or more than likely it's a goof and a well-spotted one too.

I think we're getting really deep here - we're actually thinking of why people may go places, I mean who goes somewhere for a reason???? (to avoid crtical remarks I'm being sarcastic)

.....and (as was pointed out on the second post of this thread) there's loadsa goofs being spotted at once and sometimes it gets confusing - but I'm not complaining.

That's another thing. Amy has already been introduced to Fry and she knows all the PE crew but why in Mars University she acts like she meets Fry for the first time? Weird. But I don't think people should make their brains bleed about it. I'm just being a picky bastard.

Yeah. I mean shouldnt she have gone on the mission with them. Or at least if she was there before them , she should have said something like "Hey professor , hey Fry , i'm just studying here and taking time off work for a while."

That's a bugger to solve really.

Well she is doing an internship at Planet Express. That means that she is taking a normally unpaid (which doesn't matter anyhow in her case) job at this company to get further in her studies at Mars univeristy. She isn't part of the "actual" delivery crew - which are Leela, Fry and Bender.
She greets Fry with "Yo, classmate. What you takin'?", which if they wouldn't know each other at all would be even weirder to do.

I don't see a problem in that at all... it is rather disturbing that Amy is on earth so often if she should be studying on Mars - considering that she is living there as well, since her parents own half of it.

Pfft.  Like Amy goes to class.

Actually, since she's an intern in the employ of someone who's apparently a tenured professor at MU, she might be getting some sort of independent study/praxeum credit for working at Planet Express, meaning she would be spending less time in class and thus, more time on Earth.

Let's see, it's about 5 seconds from NNY to the Moon in the PE ship judging by Fry's countdown. Depending on whether Mars is on the same side of or opposite the Sun the trip at that speed would be between about 17 to 53 minutes. Perhaps even quicker if the PE ship or the like can stretch its legs in wide open space. And the PE ship is basically a UPS truck not a Beta Romeo.

Well... the Planet Express Ship can go 99% of the "new" speed of light, so it seems possible that on the flight to the moon it didn't even near that limit. Also do we know that it seems to be possible to get to the edge of the universe, deliver a pizza (if the place would have existed) and back to earth in a week. I am pretty sure the trip earth/Mars is much faster than 53 minutes.
Probably Mars, like the moon, is so nearby that it doesn't even reach full speed.
