In "Love & Rocket" and "Leela's Homeworld" (IE: The 4ACV episodes) didn't Hermes' voice sound deeper? What's the deal with that?

"Rosebud... Yes, Rosebud frozen peas. Full of country goodness and green pea-ness. ...wait, that's terrible. I quit! ...just a handful for the road. ...oh, what luck. There's a french fry stuck in my beard."
 - Orson Welles, "The Critic"

It definitely sounded different when he tasted the toxic waste in "Leela's Homeworld", much deeper, but he still sounded cool. Benders voice has changed Marginally too, but not as much as Hermes has.

T'ings change, mon. Just look at the characters way back in Space Pilot 3000--Leela's eye was so big it actually appears to curl around her head, and Fry looks a tad rattier. (Or at least, more Simpsonish.) Hermes' voice is VERY different in Season Two than it was in The Series Has Landed. Makes you wonder, doesn't it--what kind of changes would leap out at you if you could directly compare yourselves then and now? Would it make you happy, or sad? Or set you off on a killing spree?

I was looking at some pictures of myself at university (over 10 years ago now). I used to be much skinnier. And I had considerably more and thicker hair. On the plus side, I now have far more money, a cool job, a cool car, my own flat, can take my alcohol far more successfully and don't act like *quite* so much of a geek. So it balances out. Although I'm still kinda gutted about the hair thing. Where's my gun?

The animation on the whole does look better now, on the DVD commentaries they pointed out parts where the characters weren't quite drawn properly. One example is in "My Three Suns" after Bender cooks his first meal and everyone almost dies from salt poisoning, Dr Zoideberg was drawn too wide. The character animation has been the biggest improvement in animation on the show, followed by the extensive use of blending CGI into the habd drawn animation. Although it still looked brilliant to begin with! smile

Still, there are ocasionally glitches. Hermes looked really weird in the toxic waste scene of "Leela's Homeworld", particularly when he taste the toxic.

And then there's that scene from A Head in the Polls - where Fry and Bender's arms go THROUGH Leela.
