New this month Trivia: At the Academy Awards, Pauly Shore is in the audience. He's sitting next to Michelle, Fry's ex-girlfriend from 2000. At the end of s03e03, "The Cryonic Woman", Michelle leaves Fry for Pauly Shore. They are sitting behind Edith Head's head and Jar-Jar's head.
New this month Trivia: When Hermes, a Rastafarian, is trying to straighten out his straight edge, he says "Haile H. Selassie" (an exclamation he says in other episodes too). Haile Selassie is the central figure in the Rastafari culture. For many Rastafarians, Selassie is a biblical messiah and the second coming of Christ. Thus, the added "H" could be akin to someone saying "Jesus H. Christ."
Trivia: This is a very good example of the amount of detailed thought in these episodes. In S01E01 we saw Fry fall into the cryogenic tube and get frozen. In Season 5 Episode 8 (The why of Fry) we see this same freezing scene again but in this episode Fry and Nibbler are under the desk arguing since it appears Nibbler was the one to push Fry into the cryogenic tube. In Season 5 Episode 2 (Jurassic Bark) we see the freezing scene again but if you watch the scene where Fry is about to fall into the tube you can see the shadow of Fry and Nibbler on the floor since we learn that they are under the desk from S5E08.
Trivia: When the series first started, the animators placed five Alienese letters in the background. IN one poster, it said "drink slurm" and in another, drink was replaced by the five Alienese letters. Going on that, fans of the show were able to decipher the whole language in a couple of hours to decode what was written in graffiti on the wall behind the grate Bender and fry used to escape into the sewers. It said "Venutians (People from Venus) go home".
Trivia: David X. Cohen's name is actually David S. Cohen. He was asked why he changed the middle initial to an X and there are two explanations that he has given. Since there was another David S. Cohen who was member of the WGAE, it was necessary to alter the name, so he decided on the initial X change. One explanation for the letter X is because many aliens have an X in their name, and the other explanation is he thought it sounded cool.
