i think this may have been asked but im not very good with using that damn search thing!


Where does frys outtie come from? (Im refering to issue #12) In the T.V show he has his shirt off lots, and he dosnt have an outtie. And on the cover of comic issue #10 he has his shirt off and no outtie?


can anyone explain this?     :confused:

Maybe in the future they have a way of reversing if you're an innie or an outie?

Maybe in the future they have long since evolved beyond the need for a constant outtie.

well no one mentioned it before that comic.
He didn't have it when he was on the probulater.
Why would the "not a constant outtie" thing just stop working?

Maybe he opened too many beers with it...

Maybe he just sucked it in to look more attractive to women.

A belly button that sticks outwards instead of caving inwards.

You're all freaks for even contemplating thinking about discussing this.

Hahah, it's just a gag thought up at the last minute, I doubt they'll show him with an outie again, too distracting and hideous.

Maybe the writer of the story didn't think of all the times he had an innie.

Simple solution: the comics aren't canon.

In this case canon is used to describe stuff/information the creators consider to be part of the official universe.

I can't talk for Groening and Gohen, but I've never considered the comics to be canon, too much conflicting information.

i agree with teral, the comics make mistakes all the time. Most of the time they aren't even written by official Futurama writers.

I got that issue from my local comic book store!  I have an account there that lets them order any back issue I want!  Way better than Ebay!  It's hilarious how Bender tries to be a 'non-human cannonball'.   I also have #11!  And have yet to get issue #17.

I think i can answer my own question, which is alot less depressing then the comics not being 'canon'. its Simple and I'm suprised that I, or anybody else, didnt think of it sooner. The Comics and the T.V Series are not in Chronological order.

I checked out Space Pilot 3000 and Episoed Two: The Series Has Landed, in SP3K when Fry gets on the Probulater tere are only two shots of his Belly Buton and it is not clear if its an inne or an outie in either shot. There are no shots of Frys Belly Butonin E2:TSHL

Issue #12 could have happend just after E2:TSHL, also issue #12 could have happened before Issue #10, i.e. fry would no have had his outtie operated on.

So, I think I've solved it!
Any Questions?

In issue #12 Harold Zoid show up, fully aware of Zoidberg's job as company physician, and willing to fill in. In "That's Lobstertainment" he didn't even know Zoidberg was on Earth until he (Zoidberg) wrote and told him. Clearly issua #12 takes place after TL.

Theory destroyed. :p

And why is it depressing if the comics aren't canon? It just means they don't fit into the official universe, but can be seen as free-standing edventures. None of the Star Trek novelles are canon, that doesn't mean a good deal of them are just as good, or sometimes better, than official episodes. Same thing with the Futurama comics.

*covers ears and screams: "im not listening"*  :p Just Kidding

The following is how I see things in my mind, it may not be how other people see it, I don't like the idea that the comics arn't canon, because to me that means they arn't real, which means futurama is dead.  so it is depresing to think that Futurama is dead. If i could change the way i think to make me accept the comics not being canon i would, untill them i will just have to come up with more insane theorys (or become rich and fund the show)
