r016088Ok.. first of All.. Decapodian is derived from greek meaning ten feet.. (Deca = 10, Podia = feet), and that's prolly why their vehicles have 10 feet (although strangely, the decapod 10 inhabitants do not.)

Now, there's another nibbler appearanace in the cryogenics room in Jurassic Bark. However he is in the dust bin and his eye points gluttoniously towards the pizza (an indication that nibbler is always in for a good feast). Being in the dust bin though, is an inconsistency, as we can clearly see in The Why of Fry that Nibbler is waiting for Fry under the desk all the time.

Finally, I'm not sure if someone else has discovered this but in AOI2, when the space invaders land and the aliens come out of the ship, the little green one (Pogo if I recall correctly) says something incomprehensive. I sampled that and reversed it in an audio software and it says:

Where could a guy get some _____ around here?

I can't really make out the ____ word.. it sounds something like pants, peanuts, plants with "planets" being the closest one..

EDIT: also in the pilot the french are actually talking in french in the countdown.. they say "neuf" not "nine".. (hope I spelled that correctly as my french have been gathering dust for 15 years now)..

I don't have Sp3k handy at the moment, but I think all the various cultures do the countdown in their native language, except the French of the Future, ofcourse.

It's "pants", David X Cohen mention it in the audio commentaries.

He's called Q*Bert, and he's orange.  (Pogo is an opossum.)  In the old video game, Q*Bert would say something similar if he got killed (it's supposed to be swearing).

If you watch A Clone of My Own in french (I just had to see what this would be like), the machine that translates into an incomprehensible dead language (french), instead of saying bonjour it says guten tag....

Apparently French being a dead language wasn't just an isolated gag in "A Clone of My Own."  That still leaves open the question (probably asked many times before) as to why France and (New) New York would be ringing in the new year at the same time.

Artistic license.  They weren't really ringing in the new year at the same time, it was just shown that way for dramatic effect.

Wasn't there an error in X-mas Story where a sign said 'Joyeux Noex' in alien alphabet? That's as French as the 'cerrado para xavidad' sign above it...maybe French is only dead in Roman alphabet?

Clover With Most Leaves
A 14-leafed red clover (Trifolium pratense) was reported by Paul Haizlip, and located in Bellevue, Washington, USA, on June 22, 1987. A fourteen-leafed white clover (Trifolium repens) was also found by Randy Farland near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA on 16 Jun 1975. The flowering tops of red clover were used in traditional Chinese and Western folk medicine to treat chronic skin conditions. It is still used today in herbal medicine remedies to help relieve colds, poor digestion, and muscle cramping.

Back on topic, in "Put Your Head On My Shoulder", the professor says " I still don't understand why you wouldn't let me graft a laser cannon onto your chest." Later, in "Time Keeps On Slippin", one of the mutant atomic supermen has a cannon in his chest. Coincidence? I think not.

Okay, in I Second that Emotion, when Bender's spinning his head like a basketball, he whistles the Harlem Globetrotters theme. In Time Keeps on Skipping, he desperatly wants to join the Globetrottors. And for some other obvious ones, Bender's cooking and folk music obsesions developed into fully-fledged episodes.

We use lots of Latin phrases today, but I don't think many people can speak it fluently; maybe the odd phrase survived the passage of time. Why it should be specifically for an Xmas card, that I don't know. The gag also shows that Christmas is now Xmas everywhere on the planet, by using "Noex" instead of "Noel". I don't know whether "Christmas" in any other languages can be changed to an equivalent "Xmas".

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

That reminds me of what The Simpsons is known to do. For example, in "Homer's Oddyesey", the third aired episode, Blinky the three-eyed fish was shown for a brief moment. Then in season 2, the episode "Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish" focused on Blinky and how he costs Mr. Burns his bid for governor of whatever state Springfield's in. Also, in "Simpson and Delilah" in season 2, Homer offered to by Lisa a pony. She later got one in season 3's "Lisa's Pony", as Bart got one in season 11's "Saddlesore Galactia".
I think that doing that is a great idea. In my opinion, "Bendin' in the Wind", "Time Keeps on Slippin'" and "The 30% Iron Chef" (episodes that were fleshed out from side jokes in earlier episodes) were great.

1ACV04: The female Leela's problem is purely medical. Soon her eggs will drop and all will be well.

2ACV05: As you can see, the ocean's a giant egg sea after the fuckfest.
