I got all seasons of Futurama released on DVD (seasons 1, 2 and 3) in 'Hell is other robots' (season 1) commentary, one guy says Nibblers escape from Robot hell was explained in season 3, but ive found nothing on any of the episodes.
Anyone got any ideas?
Also im surprised the guys got to do a commentary on season 3 if they broke up.
Shame really all my fave shows (Farscape, Futurama, Buffy) are being canned/closed seems like coorperate conspiracy to do away with original, non stagnent, genuinly entertaining shows.

The reference is we learn Nibbler is intelligent  in "The Day Earth Stood Stupid". If Nibbler were simply an average house-pet (whether alien or Terran) he wouldn't be able to find his way from the amusement park to the PE ship in a strange city. But since he is intelligent and sentient, no problem.

They do the audio commentaries in batches of 2 or 3, spread out over several weeks. They fit it inot their schedule somehow. Season 3 commentaries was recorded in summer 2002, long before FOX "officially" cancelled the show. And it's in the interest of FOX HE to have commentaries as well, the more value costumers get for their money, the more they're inclined to buy season 4 as well.

Welcome to PEEL, lovablerascal. Enjoy it here.

Oh god, please don't bring it up again, we've been through this and you wouldn't believe how these guys argue over that point, alright, I was there too, screw it.

There's an interview with DXC somewhere that said it was kind of good to meet up again to do the commentaries for 4ACV because several of the ex-Futurama staff hadn't seen one another since it was cancelled.

And FOX is under no illusions that the reason rather a large percentage of people buy the DVDs because of the commentaries. It's all about money with these people.

Nibbler didn't go down to robot hell...
Fry and Leela fell in the hole and Nibler stayed on the surface.

Yeah, I just watched again, and Nibbler simply watches them fall down the hole in front of the funhouse mirror. No rescue attempt or anything.

Hey, I've got another weird thing... in a tale of two santas, the elves (neptunians) push the mail cart secretly concealing Fry, Leela and Bender up the hill.  The tops of their hats are chopped off, but when they arrive in Santa's lair, their hats are back to normal.  When I was watching this episode, did I get abducted by aliens and/or my parents without realising, hence missing the scene where they get new hats?  Or was it simply a strange cock up?

By the way, my parents don't usually abduct me...I just had to squeeze in the old and/or joke somewhere.
