In My Three Suns, when Zoidberg says "Let's face it, we're in hot butter here!" his tongue is red instead of purple.

Leela's nose is missing in a scene in "I Second That Emotion." After Bender flushes Nibbler down the toilet, it's in the very first first frame when it switches from a long shot of Leela crying at the table to a close up shot.

Hey, could you put up a screen shot of that?  It sounds really weird, and it's making me curious!

I'm sure I send the knife back to New Jersey after using it. Kryten probably have it, covered with getak's blood.

Anyway, the reason I read this thread is I noticed that Leela and Fry seems off model during most of "Luck Of The Fryrish"'s second act (the trip in old New York). Particular while riding the Bender-train, and the scenes just prior to that, when they look out over an area with the top of Chrysler Building. I'll get a framegrab later.

You'd think that a noseless Leela would look really strange, but to me that frame looks pretty normal.

somewhere in the deleted scenes of the first few eps of season 2 there is a shot of zapp brannigan with only a tiny piece of a nose, its like a portion of the top line... anyone know what i'm talking about?

Well, in "A head in the polls" I caught what would be called in video games, a cliping error. where Bender anf Fry's arms pass through leelas arms. Its in the begining, couch scene, where Leela sits down hard to wake up fry and bender. I don't know how to make a screen shot.

I agree.  For some reason, the noseless Leela doesn't look all that strange.

Also, the shot where Fry's and Bender's arms pass through Leela in A Head in the Polls looks really bizarre, too.  They have a picture of it at the New Zealand Futurama page here: http://www.palmy.net.nz/futurama/weirdscenes/ws.html?ws=42

yeah, and didn't the simpsons start out with spikey teeth and their mouths just went up and down like those japaneese cartoons like dragonballZ.

No, the Simpson's didn't start out that way.  The animation looked more crudely drawn than it is now, but the movements were still fluid.

 Yeah, but those are just quick in-betweens, you're not supposed to freeze-frame 'em! It's like in "A Pharoah To Remember" when Bender pushes that stone block up the ramp and then round a corner. That looks daft if you freeze-frame it. But I wont. ('coz I don't know how either   frown ).

 EDIT: I just found out how, but I don't have the relevant software.

You think the animators sneek in stuff to see if we're paying attention?

Forget what episode it was, but Fry looked a bit crudely drawn in one shot, and in another ep Leela's chest was jiggling as she walked in one scene (no complaints from me!)  big grin

I noticed this long ago, but now I re-remembered: In 1acv02: E2TSHL when the lunar rover (the fake amusementpark-ride one) turns on the track right before going through the door, it just looks incredibly nasty and ugly.

In "Time Keeps on Slippin'" the animation was great, but the designs of the characters seemed like those of earlier episodes.

Yeah, a lot of the characters were off throughout the entire first season. For me, "My Three Suns" was the worst animated episode ever. I realize it was early but some scenes are just completely off-model character-wise.

Hey leave 'em alone, Gork. They were just starting out. Just like they just move the mouths and not have the character move. It's awful I tell you, awful! [mouth continues to move when finished]

In a Leela of her own, after Leela walks away when she's been proclaimed worst player ever, the black line on her nose disappears for one shot, then returns in the next.

There's a nasty colouring mistake in Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles. When the Professor is climbing into the Fountain of Aging with the babies, Amy and Fry's skin tones are reversed, for at least that shot, although I remember there being another. Take a look.

Another scene with choppy sequence animation is in "Time keeps on Slipping", when Bubble-gum brings up weapons of mass destruction, and Prof. Farnsworth activates the underground weapon containment elevator garage thing. It raises from complete out-of-sight view level to ground level in about 6 frames! And if that wasn't bad enough for that one scene, the characters are pixelated in flash frames, almost as if that entire sequence was rushed in OVER some older animation or to replace something that was already there. You never know, what with all of the temporary taking-the-crashing-PE-Ship-out-of-the-intro to redubbing the "JFK Jr. Museum" (acc?) dialogue, if could've been a quick cover up for some "politically incorrect" reference to Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Or maybe it's just coincedental and I'm looking into things with too much detail as I usually do at late hours.

I need to go and take a look, but I think that the doomsday devices rising through the floor are 3D, are they not? In which case, you're cutting together traditional hand-drawn stuff with entirely computer generated material, which is bound to have an effect.

Although I do agree that it looks odd.

In any case, how much more offensive could the original material have been that it needed to be re-shot? If they were concerned about being PC, then that whole sequence would have been altered.

Speaking of these no nose scenes, I just noticed another. When Zoidberg says "You're right, my stink gland is weak!" in Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love, notice as he's pulling Leela in(SMELL!)...she has no nose. You really have to freeze it to see it though. She looks like a fish, it's pretty funny.
