Show generally

Corrected entry: In some episodes, the cop robot's mouth flashes red when he speaks. In other episodes, the lines on his mouthpiece just shake, like Bender's.

Correction: It has been shown that robots can change the way their mouthpieces work. Bender can do vampire teeth, jagged teeth like a lion, gap toothed to accommodate a flamethrower, a sine wave, musical patterns and so on. The cops have multiple settings, too. Not a mistake.

Episode Two: The Series Has Landed - S1-E2

Corrected entry: As shown in other episodes, there are quite a few people who were cryogenically frozen for hundreds of years. If this is so, Then how is it possible they don't know what really happened in the lunar landing? Many more people besides Fry must have noticed something was amiss about the "fungineers" take on the moon landing.

Correction: And those people were probably ignored like Fry because they were from the "stupid ages".

I, Roommate - S1-E3

Corrected entry: How can the "closets" of the rooms in the Robot Arms Apartment be so large if all the rooms are so close together?

Correction: It may be that only certain apartments (say, every second or third one) have closets that big, while all the other apartments have small closets in between, or none at all.


Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: The Professor tells Fry that in the future they've done away with concepts of modesty and proceeds to walk around naked most of the show but when he sleeps with Mom they both pull the sheet up when the gang burst in and the Professor walks around with a sheet wrapped around him, as does Mom.

Correction: Professor Farnsworth is also the ONLY one to claim that modesty has been done away with and to walk around naked. This is most likely something that only goes on in the Professor's brilliant but slightly foggy mind.


A Fishful of Dollars - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When Mom's three sons (Walt, Larry, and Ignar) try to fool Fry into saying his PIN number (1077, the price of a cheese pizza and a large soda), they get Pamela Anderson's head to request a cheese pizza and large soda. However, whenever Larry (the blonde one) was telling Pamela what to say, he only told her to order a cheese pizza. So how did Pamela know she was supposed to also order a large soda (even though she forgot it was a soda, but she still knew she needed to order something else).

Correction: However poorly they planned the whole thing, they did have a script and obviously rehearsed the whole scene prior to picking up Fry. Larry and Pamela Anderson both flub their lines, but that doesn't mean she couldn't remember back to the original script when she needed to.

My Problem With Popplers (a.k.a. The Problem With Popplers) - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When Luur announces that they will eat 'the first earthling' who ate one of their young, he announces that it was Leela. Leela isn't an earthling.

Correction: Yes she is. It is revealed in season 4 that she is in fact a mutant and therefore technically an earthling. She didn't know it at the time, but it had been hinted at in previous episodes.


A Big Piece of Garbage - S1-E8

Corrected entry: The only way they could make a garbage ball the exact mass and density of the first garbage ball, wouldn't they need to have the exact same amount of every item in the first garbage ball?

Correction: No.

Where the Buggalo Roam - S4-E6

Corrected entry: When everyone goes to Mars to visit Amy's parents (and celebrate Mars Day) it is shown that Mars is, like today, a red, desolate wasteland of dirt. However, in the episode "Mars University", Mars is shown to be filled with jungles and plant life. Maybe that is the hemisphere that the Wong family doesn't own, but if that were true, then why would Inez (Amy's mom) say they had the best hemisphere when the other one is, theoretically, filled with grasslands and jungles et cetera?

Correction: They own that hemisphere, therefore, they're obviously going to think it's the best.


30% Iron Chef - S4-E11

Corrected entry: In this episode, robot homosexuals are referred to as "romos". However, in the first episode, it's referred to as "robosexuals", so that would logically mean that it could be cut down to "robos", so why does a robo suddenly mean a robot hobo?

Correction: "Robosexual" refers to people who have sex with robots (like in the Lucy Liu episode), whereas "romos" are homosexual robots.


Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch - S5-E5

Corrected entry: When Kiff tells Zap and the Planet Express Crew how he became pregnant, he says that he absorbed DNA through his skin and Fry comments that anyone of them could be the man-mom but Kiff only actually touches Leela skin to skin apart from Amy - He grabbed Leela's arm, Fry's pants, Bender's leg (he doesn't count because he has RNA, not DNA) and Zapp's uniform.

Correction: Gross as it sounds, your clothing is absolutely crawling with epitheleals - detached skin cells. You shed your entire skin every twenty days. Each cell has your full DNA complement, and Kif could easily absorb it from that.

Brannigan Begin Again - S2-E6

Corrected entry: How could Zapp and Kif get fired from their jobs if they theoretically, along with everyone else, have a PERMANENT career chip planted in them?

Correction: They are chips that assign you to your permanent career, not permanent chips that assign you to a career. Leela demonstrates that the chips can be removed when required - such as when someone is dismissed from their jobs.

Godfellas - S4-E8

Corrected entry: When the small civilization that thinks Bender is the "Metal Lord" annihilates each other with atomic bombs, mushroom clouds are formed. This is impossible, as mushroom clouds would only form in a space with a multi-layered atmosphere, something Bender is definitely lacking.

Correction: What nuclear bombs? They are far too small to be nuclear bombs - you need a minimum reaction mass, and they don't have it. This is a civilization that lives in a virtually gravity-free vacuum on a metal robot. Who knows what weapons they have and how they behave when they detonate?

Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles - S5-E7

Corrected entry: It is established in the episode "A Clone of My Own" that French is an unknown, dead language. If this is true, then why does Dr. Farnsworth's gargoyle, Pazuzu, tell us good night at the end of the episode in French (bonne nuit)?

Correction: Latin is a 'dead language' nowadays but we use hundreds of Latin expressions (et cetera, post mortem, ante natal and so on ad nauseam) because they have been adopted into modern languages. There is no reason that this principle cannot hold true for 31st century French.

Mars University - S2-E2

Corrected entry: When everyone is floating towards the waterfall, the rock that saves them appears out of nowhere.


Correction: You can see it in the other shots, especially when Bender and the rest of ERR go over the edge. Its just a little below the water-line so you can't see it from water level.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Bender is 30% Iron, 40% Zinc, 40% Titanium and 40% Dolomite. Thats 150%.

Dan Moat

Correction: Not true. He sells his 40% titanium parts in one episode and sells some more parts and even explodes in later episodes.


Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch - S5-E5

Corrected entry: In the series 3 episode "Amazon women in the mood", the Amazons use all males for "snoo-snoo" until they die. In that episode they take Kif into their dressing-room-like booths and seemingly snoo-snoo him. However, in this episode we learn that Kif's people don't have genitalia. They reproduce by directly absorbing DNA through their skins. What exactly are the Amazons DOING to Kif, given the lack of sex organs?

Carl Fink

Correction: Just because they reproduce asexually doesn't mean they don't have any genitalia. Also, if I remember that episode, she couldn't catch Kif, so she never got the chance to "do" anything.


Show generally

Corrected entry: If you add up Bender's "metallic constituents" throughout the entire show, it comes to something like 200%, which of course is impossible. He claims at various points that he is 40% titanium, 40% zinc, 40% "dolomite", 30% iron, and there are several others. Naturally, if you add these together it comes to more than 100% which cannot be the case.

David Mercier

Correction: True, he says at various points he is made of several metallic constituents. However, in at least one episode (Episode 203, A Head in the Polls), he sells his body because of the price of titanium. Other episodes he was shot, exploded (Ep. 207), etc. Therefore it is possible that he DID consist of these metallic percentages, but at varying times. On top of this, Bender is a compulsive liar. He may just be saying he is 40% of whatever fits the situation.


A Fishful of Dollars - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When the three brothers steal the money from Fry's account they take $4.3 billion, how is this possible if Fry has already spent it all?

Correction: Fry was either writing checks or using credit. The money was removed from the account by the brothers before the spending had cleared. That's why all of Fry's property is seized.

The Cyber House Rules - S3-E11

Corrected entry: They say the blind guy is now deaf, but if he was blind and deaf, how did he just walk up and know it was Leela? (00:04:20)

Sol Parker

Correction: Sense of smell perhaps? It's often said that when people lose a sense, they learn to use the others better.

David Mercier

A Taste of Freedom - S5-E4

Corrected entry: Zoidberg said here that he has three hearts, but in the Roswell episode he said he had four.


Correction: Zoidberg tells the US soldiers that they can "keep it (the heart they pull out during the autopsy), I've got three more", so he did have four, but lost one for good.
