[DXC]Ah, but you never saw what Bender looked like inside/i] the machine![/DXC]

From the electro-fried brains of tortured seals, I guess... maybe the 'baby' ones were prototypes...

That seems likely, seeing as how eventually he became a disc of bending robot blueprints.

it cant be. for fry and leela turn into babies.
if bender turns into a prototype, he doesnt get younger, but becomes another robot.
fry and had to turn into a sort of ape.
also what sense makes a tiny, cute looking bending unit. what sort of items is he bending then?

Nixorbo, that entry consistently amuses me.
Can't you just be satisfied with the fact that a little Bender is frigging adorable?

Hey man, maybe the baby's life is in peril. He got expelled from preskool, got dumped by his girlfriend, is addicted to Heroin, and doesnt have a job. In that case, maybe suicide for a baby is acceptable...

......or not.

I think that this could be used as an explanation for every single thread in this section. Good on it.

I don't think it would work all that well as a translation for the alien languages.  Or actual animation errors.

How about if the RNA malfunctioned and morphed bender into a new, child-like bender? Anybody think of that?

I always thought it as a joke since they've said for the longest time that Bender's looked the same since birth.

They also joked about it when he gives his bronze booties to Kif and Amy.

Because big things aren't cute. Remember, that's why the "Colossal Tammy Tinkle Doll" was such a failure.

You have seen him with children, and how he neglected them, now you can see him as a child, and it wouldn't be too cool if you had a big robot that acts like a ten year old, it would just be too odd.

Works for me. The way I see it, RNA determines the hardware, and can be corrupted by either chronotons or ancient curses. This explains both the were-car transformation and Bender's de-aging. If you altered Tinny Tim's RNA, you could make him grow up in the same way that you could make Bender grow younger.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

This episode made me wonder.

I thought Bender always looked the way he looked.

Dont forget we dont see Bender until he is full grown.. yeah but we dont see him until he comes out of the machine! Its what he looks like inside the machine where you will find your answer!
They said it on the dvd audio commentry   big grin

The fact that the Macaulay Culkin robot (I forget his name) had puberty installed seems to fit with this idea.

This has nothing to do with your question German Fry but isn't there another German Fry that works for TLZ.

   hmpf Bender's youth was a main part of the plot of "Teenage Mutant Leela Hurdles" and never used again, it can't really be explained.

The only explanation I can agree with is, that all of these young appearances happended before his "birth" on the assembley line. From his appearance with the braces down to the CD-ROM.

Are you talking about me?    confused

The German Fry (above) joined 2 weeks before I (germanfryfan "gff" )did. I've never seen him posting again.
Also I don't work for TLZ, you may have mixed Teral (he's a Dane and works at FM:TLZ) and me    wink.

I'm only webmaster of my own picture-webspace and a developer at the new Futurama game fan-project FryScape: Episode I.

But how can they have happened before the assembly line? We see Bender being built from parts already assembled...

Good point!
But we only see him being put together, that doesn't mean that these parts didn't have a "life" before they got connected as Bender.
We know that parts of him can survive and even be moved without being connected to him since SP3000.
Also it is possible that his "history" is implanted in his brain-chip.
