Yivo was actually created and is being controlled by the evil flying brains.

The brains were sent to another universe in The Why Of Fry when Fry set off a time-bomb thing in the infosphere, right? Well, what if the heaven universe that everybody went to through the space-time rip in the sky is where the brains were banished to? Then, when the gateway between universes opened at the end of Benders Big Score, they created a giant alien (Yivo) that they had control of through their brain powers, and planned to use it to trick/distract everybody with the ultimate goal of returning to the original universe and finishing their task of collecting every piece of information and destroying everything?

Leela would have discovered this after she became suspicious in the heaven universe when everybody went there with Yivo, and she would have eventually discovered the truth. However, since everyone would have been brainwashed, nobody would believe her except for Fry (who, as we know, is immune to the brains - he was only going along with loving Yivo because he's stupid). Fry and Leela would then have to come up with a plan to stop the brains and save the universe, probably with the help of Bender and the other robots, who were still in the original universe.

Thoughts?

I fancy that the brains will appear in ITWGY so I'm sure your brain lust will be satisfied.

Also it's worth pointing out that technically Leela helped Fry defeat the brains in 'The Day the Earth Stood Stupid'.

Good idea about Beast with a Billion Backs.  It would've been cool to see the brain spawn again.   I liked it just the way it was.

For shame!
And I liked it. True, it took a while to actually get to the point, but it was all in good humor. I just think they should've given Yivo speeches a little earlier because I liked David Cross as Yivo.

I'm utterly lost there...

but I like the BWABB remake. I like how Bender is actually doing something good by making the army of robots in urs. I didn't like how Bender was made out to be an ass for taking everyone away form Yivo in the real movie.

Yeah, I mean what's up with that?

Of course no one in the universe should be allowed to live in peace and harmony and be happy and content for the rest of their lives.

And what would robots want with a universe where all the beings who (presumably) made them and control most aspects of their "lives" have now departed leaving the robots in charge (by default) and in complete control of their own destiny?

Some people just don't get it.  :rolleyes:

On a fairly unlelated note: Did all the Nibblonians leave the universe when Nibbler did (in BBS) or (in tBwaBB) did they join with Yivo too?

I reckon that the Nibblonians are in the same universe as the brains and they will come back in Movie 4.

I think the Space pope should have been tied in there somewhere, wanting to create one true religion, and using Yivo as his right hand.

In light of Bender's Game it seems that putting them in a cage is enough to prevent Nibblonians from being able to leave the universe. (Either that or they're choosing to not do so, in spite of their complaints.)

Perhaps there are consequences to ‘leaving the universe’ that preclude the Nibblonians from doing so.
Perhaps only some Nibblonians have that ability.
Perhaps there's another reason, not addressed "in canon?"
Although 'plot device' springs to mind.

Stop analyzing everything with your relentless logic, SpaceCase!

No, actually I'll take 'plot device' for 100, please.

Mom's actions wouldn't have been anywhere near despicable (huh, I could have sworn I heard Sylvester* as I was typing that) enough to justify the professor's sudden and unilateral crippling of all space-faring capability in the galaxy if she had merely been processing more recent (but still abandoned) 'leavings' of free-range Nibblonians. So, in the cages they go!

No syllogism is involved. I merely indicate other possibilities.

I'm sorry: Your response was not in the form of a question. :p

It was Daffy. Sylvester's  tag-line was "Sufferin' succotash" "Thufferin' thuccotash."
Now y'know where I spent my childhood.
I'm just a different kind of daffy...

Oh yes, Wile E. spoke on a few occasions.  Once to explain why he was so obsessively trying to catch the Road Runner.  Another, when Bugs substituted for the Road Runner (who was training to be in a marathon).

And you must be forgetting his other starring role, that of "Ralph Wolf", the hapless wolf who's only obstacle to decimating the sheep herd was the Shaggy sheepdog.

If Leela was in the heaven universe with the brains wouldn't she be made stupid and rendered unable to figure all of this out? The robots would also be made stupid by the brains because in "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid" Bender was no better off than any of the meatbags.

I think the point is that the Brains sent Yivo to seduce the universe into their universe.

If Yivo is just a creation of the Brainspawn, then perhaps they couldn't give shklim powers of stupefaction but (with their immense knowledge of the universe) they could teach shklim how to seduce them all.

Perhaps robots are less easily seduced.

"Stupified" or not, robots can't cross the tear in space-time into Yivo's universe - although, there's nothing yet stated to prevent the BrainSpawn from crossing into ours. :hmpf:
Also, Yivo's powers of, ah... persuasion still wouldn't work on robots.
