  • Did you notice Nibbler the first time you watched the episode? I sure didn't.
  • How much have the voices have changed?
  • Now we know that those aren't aliens attacking Old New York, it's Swedish attacking Bender.
  • I remember being so excited about this series. I watched The Simpsons avidly and thought, "another Matt Groening cartoon? And it's in space? Count me in!".
  • My oldest son was 3 days old when this episode aired, so I was a little busy at the time.
