So naturally I was hoping that continuity with it would show up before the series ended.

I noticed a thing while watching Fry and the Slurm Factory. Specifically, in the scene where Leela and the Professor are playing 3D chess. First off, 3 dimensional chess is a classic of Star Trek, but I'm focusing on the letters and words on it. The Professor's letter tray has almost all the letters needed for FUTURAMA except for one a, and the top platform has ONE and EYE crossing each other. Lastly, the second platform to the top has MATT on it.

No, they do play 3D scrabble in Fry and the Slurm Factory and it's regular chess in Xmas Story.

I'm disappointed in all of you (except Quantum Neutrino Field). And you call yourselves nerds.

The holographic chess that Fry and Bender play in "Brannigan, Begin Again" is referencing Star Wars. Three-dimensional chess, on the other hand, is from Star Trek, and is referenced in "Fry and the Slurm Factory" in the scene where Leela and the Professor are seen playing 3-D Scrabble.

I just rewatched "Meanwhile" today, and I have to say, for a chick who clearly never wears a bra, Leela's breasts really aged well. Not much sagging. How unfair.

Not quite, young Padawan.
In the first Futurama comic, Bender wants to prove that the X-Ray googles he purchased are working, by telling Leela that she wears a bra. To which she replies that she alway does (indirectly hinting that those proof does not count, because she considers herself wearing a bra something obvious that anyone could guess).

Also, in 2-D Blacktop, Farnsworth said "...when you upgrade your bazooms". So, Leela got at least one boob job. (Regarding the possibilities of genetical engineering, it might possibly have been done without implants. I am pretty sure that someone offering cosmetic surgery - but leaving the women still the right to say "Yes, they are real"- would earn big time).

Ok, I do remember the comic now, but I have a point about your 2-D comment. AND, as the proud owner of breasts since the tenth grade I have a few more, Inquisitor. However it is work time for Luna now, and there are squirrels all over her classroom.

Since we know Amy has at least 1 bra that needs recharging it is possible that there are bras that are not visible or made of cloth and other materials. There may be products that are a combination of anti-gravity and force fields that perform the same task. It may have only taken a generous endowment from the Howard Hughes Head Foundation in 2865 to develop a working prototype.

Do not worry about the double post. I just found out I made the post list with 10 posts a week. This kinda implies: Right now, Peel needs every post it can get. Be it "legal" or double ones... ;)

Someone may have already posted this, but Nibbler's age in "I Second That Emotion" is incorrect. They say he is five, but we know he existed since 1999, when he pushed Fry into the cryogenic freezer--now he could have time traveled, but Nibbler also didn't remember events Fry mentioned when he went back to 1999, which means that 3000 Fry was part of 1999 Nibbler's future, AKA 3000 Nibbler's present.

TL;DR (it was a short post, shame on you):
Nibbler isn't actually five.

Edit: Also, Mom's thought mosquito thing makes a cameo in Brannigan, Begin Again:





Kind of, now that I see them side by side they're not too similar.

Oh, but there's a Neptunian there. That counts for something. Also someone from My Three Suns, if I remember what the water guys look like.
And a robot elder from the anti-human planet.

Edit: hey, another one.
Brannigan, Begin Again.

Well, they say he is five if he is anything like the common tree, as the vet who is still a little woozy from the morning's gazelle kick suggests. The characters simply assume that this is true, and a joke is made about Fry's apparent difficulty counting to five (with some ironic foreshadowing, perhaps, given the initial implication that there are innumerable age rings).

Withdrawn.







Noted.

Something else, not really an Easter egg, but something I found odd/lazy.



In "Bender Gets Made", there are frames throughout Elzar's restaurant, but they're always empty.

Bender frequents Elzar's. Makes sense the frames are empty, he's probably always stealing the artwork. :p

Also some state names from Bendin' in the Wind.






Ghost in the Machines, "It Sure Ain't Butter"



Also, in "The Tip of the Zoidberg" Zoidberg calls Mom "Carol". Is that her real name?

I like how it shows 254 years in Michelle's cryogenic tube, before Lars-Fry* goes in it changing it to 990 years, thus explaining how she "coincidentally" ended up to 3002.

Fry: Hey, what are these rings in Nibbler's fang?
Jeffery: Um, I'm still a little woozy from a gazelle kick this morning but if he's anything like the common tree, the rings might indicate his age.
Fry: Yeah, well, good luck. It'd take some kind of genius to count all those rings.
Jeffery: He's five.

Nibbler's DOB: 274 BC

Fry may not be a genius, but his special brain helps him to see things.

I like the callback to Tea with Titans in "The Thief of Baghead", the footage is dated 3008 too which is the same year we last saw the show within the Futurama universe (in which Morbo interviewed Mom about dark matter fuel prices).

A tad late, but so what:
Those frames probably function as ornaments, not picture holders.
At least in our time more common in high class restaurants than big pitures.

Season 02, Episode 03: A Head in the Polls
Original Air Date: December 12, 1999

Act II: My body loved me and I turned its back on it.

Bender: Eh, I've had it up to here with this place.





Bender's antenna rises as he says "up to here."

I always thought this joke was simply referring to his new stature, but it turns out they also added a visual aid to the joke.

Also, this episode aired almost 15 years ago and I'm still just now noticing stuff. Good show, Futurama. Good show.

I love how detailed the backgrounds are (particularly for the original series). Just look at the attention to detail that's been paid to everything from the base of the machinery in those pictures above to the leaking pipes in the background. There just isn't as much of that in the revived run.

Not that there aren't new-run episodes which are visual treats in themselves.

I always loved that scene from "A Head in the Polls" that Scrappy pictured. Seeing Bender zoom around in that sexy 3D render of the Planet Express interior looks pretty darn cool.

His name is just John Zoidberg.  You're probably new here at Peel, but we generally refrain from using curse words on this message board because some of our members are younger individuals.  Thanks for your response to the query though. :)

The characters simply assume that this is true, and a joke is made about Fry's apparent difficulty counting to five (with some ironic foreshadowing, perhaps, given the initial implication that there are innumerable age rings).

I agree with your last point.  I've often posited that Fry is actually not nearly as ignorant as people assume, and that in reality he's actually a genius who often subterfuges whatever problem the crew is having at the time with the simplest of actions.  Essentially, the characters around Fry are more concerned with their own specific individualities and attachments to the material world, where as Fry, understanding truth on a much higher level and scale than most people on the planet generally lives carefree from day to day.  There are moments where he seems specifically concerned with things, almost in a selfish manner, but I would contend that he does this in order to fit in with the people around him, and that although he cares about Leela, it's precisely because she has such a low estimation of herself that he loves her enough to dedicate himself to her in order to prove that she's wrong.  Again, he has a higher understanding of truth to reality and less attachment to things in the material than most.
