Bender and Fry got a lot of money on the poppler business and Bender stole all of Alcazars gold,jewels,things like that,a lot of gold from Amazonia,I bet he stole a lot of Fry's money in A Fishful of Dollars,a lot of wallets and purses...Also he's suposed to still have the money he got from selling his body and if he didn't sell the medals he had in War is the H-Word and something from Trisol then I'm human(which I not)!And Fry didn't play the holophoner for free.
So why the hell are they still not rich?

Because I stole everything while they weren't looking.

Or they spent it all.

Or, if you've learnt anything about TV, you'd know that at the end of each episode, everything is back to normal.

Bender stole all the money and lost it at the track. Or Zoidberg traded it all for magic beans. Or something. Use your imagination people!

I imagine the Poppler money would have been frozen when it was discovered that the Popplers are Omicronian young. The government probably appropriated it to use in reparation efforts to prevent the slimy bastards blowing up the planet.

    • Bender gambles (which ainít cheap).
    • Bender has gambling debts (which ainít cheap).
    • Bender likes hookerbots (which ainít cheap).
    • Bender likes floozybots (which, also, ainít cheap).
    As for Fry,
    • Bender steals from Fry.
    In other words, God only knows where all the loot went!  :)

    My guess is Bender is the one doing all the stealing, gambling, and pawning.  Or maybe Zoidberg spent it on some get-rich-quick scheme.  Possiblities galore!

    What coldangel and SpaceCase said. 

    Also, re: Fry's holophoner money, there's a cut line from the episode which may shade some light: Leela enthuses that she's going to be famous among opera fans all over the world.  "Dozens of people!"

    As for his CD sales...well, how many on PEEL own a CD from "Zamfir, Master of the Pan Flute?"


    I thought so.  ;)

    Maybe The Crew Gave the money they earnt from the sales of popplers to the omicronians when they found it was their young and nobody brought any CD's from frys holophoner thingy.

    Shiny, Zamfir and the Pan Flute is probably an enigma to 90% of PEELers.  I mean, his crappy commercials ran back in the 80's.

    And my mother actually bought one of those godawful albums way back in 1986.

    Who's to say that Bender isn't rich? You don't think he'd share it with the crew, do you? He's got some of those stacks of bullion just sitting in the apartment in some episodes; he tosses a giant diamond in the trash in 300 big boys. He may not live the whole rich lifestyle, but he's usually got plenty of cash. Sure, he lives in a dump of an apartment but he's not interested in all the things we'd like, only a cross section of the "finer things", like floozybots, high stakes gambling and smoking fat cigars. He's ghetto rich.

    Bender likes gambling, stealing, drinking, and robot whores, whatever money he makes or takes is simply there for the moment

    It is easy come, easy go for Bender and although he loves money he doesn't dwell on it.  He takes life as it comes and that's one of the things that makes him an enjoyable character.

    Now the professor and Hermes should have all the money. If there were not so many crashes, that intergalactic courier service should be raking in the money. It seems that most of the other traffic in space is a lot slower and they keep a high profile, doing jobs for the earth government and all. If they could just get a competent crew... Ah, the heck with that; it's much more fun with Fry, Leela and Bender!

    Why doesn't Fry have money? He's an idiot.

    Tubeway fares, theft tax (city, county, federal, global, solar system, parsec, galagtic, etc.), take-out food, kick-backs to Hermes, & bank fees.
