O.K. I 'll start.

1)
The PE ship gets painted red. Right after Dwight and Cubert decide to ask their dads for help, they fly out to deliver the newspapers.

In this scene however, the ship has its original colours back. How did they do that so fast? I don't think they would have the time for that.

2)
Did anyone catch all the references and parodies?

The kid on the moon comes from a book by Antoine de Saint-Expury, le petit prince. I never knew it was known in the U.S. too. What 's the English title?

In that crater, was that one of the monsters from Star Wars?

1) Probably because the 3d model is green, and my guess is that they'd have to re-render it to make it red.  Wizardy.

2) I believe the English title is "The Little Prince."

3) Yes, the slug was from The Empire Strikes Back

Eh, just hose down the ship with paint remover.  Wouldn't take that long.

OR

The ship has self-repairing nano-bots that had been reprogrammed to accept and repair the red paint.  A quick reboot and BAM!  The nano's are changing the colors back to normal.

When Cubert is talking in that machine, you only hear the voice that is comming out of the machine. But when Farsworth is talking, you hear a doubblevoice! Creeeeeepy.

When Hermes and Farnsworth ruffle the boy's hair, Dwight's hair goes to a big Afro and he starts re-twisting his dreads with an annoyed look on his face.

That's because he's 'overloading' the machine as such, asking it to change his voice into his voice, that's why one sounds higher pitched.
Also, spice weasel, these threads were for scenes that are wrong and things that couldn't happen.

How can Cubert inherit Planet Express. Since noone knew about Cubert until "A Clone Of My Own" (mid-season 2) it reasonable that the authorities didn't either. That would make Fry next of kin, and thus he would've been the new owner.

On the other hand, Fry defrosted 2 years ago, so when Farnsie was declared dead, he didn't have an heirs.

Didn't Cubert even refer to Farnsworth as his 'father' in "A Clone of My Own"? I always assumed he treated him more like a dad because that would be more normal.

Yeah, look at wee Boba Fett in Star Wars, Episode 2. He's just a clone of Jengo Fett (spelling??) but it's really a father-son thing.

He probably declared himself in existance, and some super-rapid DNA test proved it. But Fry still should have been next of kin, since Cubert was under 18, making him a minor. Thus, he could not inherit anything without an adult also being on the record as partial owner - next next of kin, Fry. I suppose Fry is too stupid to realize that he has the power to do whatever.

All of this is impossible because Planet Express is later established in "Futurestocks" to be a publicly traded traded company, and thus cannot be inherited. The professor's shares could, but same things apply. And again, the Professor's shares weren't enough to matter, shown by the election of That Guy in "Futurestocks."

Yuck. "Futurestocks" pre-ruined this episode. Stupid FOX.

That's from "A Clone Of My Own". But notice how, for then next couple of hours, Cubert doesn't do anything but lie on Fry's back, and complain. He's obviously to weak to do anything else.

The woman that couldn't wait to get into the suicide booth at the start of the episode made really laugh. I bet everyone else, especially at FOX, didn't like or didn't get this one.

Bender wanted to make a big scene, and he knew that Fry wasn't knowledgeable about the finer points of robot anatomy.

OR: Bender got upgraded after IR when he was getting his antenae replaced, and got a load of new features installed.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

It became legal for a kid to own a business in 2853, during the term of the world's first eight-year-old President.

Okay, so I made that up, but it's possible that those laws somehow changed in the future.  On the other hand, your theory about Fry just being stupid works pretty well, too.

Cubert specifically says he inherited the building and the spaceship, not the company as such.  It does seem like those things would be part of the corporation, but again, we don't really know how business laws work in the 31st century.

Maybe the Blobs come from a less technologically advanced civilization.  I mean, the Amazonians thought the archaic-looking Femputer was really impressive.

Well, the professor lives in the building, and the ship belongs to him because he built it as part of his main occupation, inventor. So they wouldn't be part of the corporation.

saw some new stuff.  When the boys are dilivering papers they have space suits on.  But in the apology bit, the profeser, hermeas, and the kids stood on the porch with no problems whatsoever.

I'm going to be really picky now.  The H. G. B.'s are translucient, right?  But when they blink you can't see their eyes, even though you can see though there eyelids. weird  confused

Just assume there's an invisible force field surrounding the house. It's attached to some kind of asteroid, which could inhabit some gravity, which means it could inhabit an atmosphere, meaning oxygen is possible...

The kids need space suits to fly the mini-spaceship thing through open space in order to get from Earth to the housing estate. However, the estate itself has its own atmosphere in order to prevent the inhabitants from dying horribly. [Edit]Rather like what TLI just said[/Edit]

F is the 6th letter of the alphabet.
O is the 15th letter (1+5=6)
X is the 24th letter (2+4=6)

Hence, FOX = 666

Yes, but there doesn't appear to be any defanite border between the street and the houses.  Plus, most of the things that live there aren't human, save for the little prince, so they could survive without air.  also, you didn't answer the blinky thing.

Maybe the invisible force-field thing surrounds the entire estate rather than just the individual houses, that way anyone within the confines of the estate would be able to breath (But the kids still need space suits since they have to cross open space in between Earth and the houses).

And the Blobs' eyes are made in such a way that they shrink to nothingness whenever they blink, thereby explaining why they cannot be seen through the eyelids.

That Space worms wasn't necesarrily from Star Wars - it could have been the one from Dune, or wasn't there a TNG episode with worms? I think there is also a "space worms" movie.
