Hello everyone!
First off, I'm new here (please don't hurt me!)

Anyway, I noticed something wierd about what Zoidberg looked like when he was young. In 'Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles', when everyone becomes young, Zoidberg goes through numerous amounts of larval stages.

However, in 'That's Lobstertainment!', when Zoidberg is remembering his young life when he's having dinner with his Uncle, Harold Zoid, he looks normal, just smaller. Discuss.

In "That's Lobstertainment" we do see a young Zoidberg? I can't remember that.
Then again we do see a young Zoidberg in "A Taste of Freedom" who looks far different to the larval stages in the other episode.

Same with Bender: In two episodes ("Mother's Day" and "Bendless Love" (?)) we see a young Bender who does look very grown up already, compared with the Bender "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles".

Maybe it was a wizard ...  wink

The young Zoidberg we see in ATOF had probably already been through all of his larval stages.

My opinion on Bender is that he was made to look the same as he does in the "present" (i.e., the future), but that the youth mud just has odd effects on robots.  I could be wrong, though.

There's something else I don't get about that episode: When Zoidberg reverted to the stage when his siblings budded from him, why were his siblings there? Did they get younger as well?

EDIT: Welcome to PEEL, timbit!  smile

If the aging proccess was going backwards, his siblings, instead of budding off Zoidberg, should have joined back on...

Welcome to PEEL Timbit. Read the FAQ. Have fun here  smile

That's what I thought, but when everyone becomes younger for the first time, Zoidberg is already in one of his larval stages (it looks like some kind of fish thing) and he says something like:

"Hurray! I'm a teenage hearthrob again!"

In Zoidberg's flashback in TL!, he looks about 10-13, and looks like a smaller Zoidberg.

Oh, and thanks for the warm welcome guys!

Even if Zoidberg does look like he's 10-13 years old, then it dosen't mean that he is at that age. His species is oh-so-diffirent from the human race. Maybe his growth from a young looking crustacean to a full-grown is pretty fast, and he simply passed that part of his lifetime when he got in contact with that tar substance.

And here's a thought, he does say "I'm a teenage hearthrob again!", there's no arguing about that, but is he referring to human years or crustacean years (I hope I got that right)? Or maybe he understands the term "teenager" as the time of these big changes that most of us humans know from our teenage experience, and compares it to his own big changes in life, which would be his larval stages. (Did that last part make any sense?)

Oh and welcome to PEEL, I hope you'll enjoy it here.

I read that reply and I think, "Seriously, do you watch this show at all?"

I'm going to say that the reversing aging process has a different effect on non-humans.  With Bender and Zoidberg it appears to be more of a reverse evolutionary process.

Your wittiness is a bit witless. 

Zoidberg does need to change shells sometimes, perhaps he is still growing.

Re: wittness

Are you familiar with the term "You've come to a battle of wits unarmed"?  Because in this case, not only are you unarmed, but you're also stark naked and completely bald.

No offence Nix, but was the directed at me? I'm a little confused that's all   confused

Perhaps he is changing shells, or just evolves differently. It just seemed weird at the time.

If I don't use a quote, you can assume I'm talking to the person directly above me.  like now.

But Zoidberg specifically refers to these forms as his larval stages (After the Professor's plan makes them grow even younger - "You mean I'm going to revert through all my larval stages?" ). As VoVat said, the mini-Zoidberg stage probably comes after the various larval stages.
