Did You Notice...
  • The Bigfoot educational was copyrighted in 2962 and only most of the rights were reserved? {MW}
  • The Ranger got the same kind of snap-shot camera as Bender (in previous episodes)? {MW}
  • For some reason, everyone is wearing head gear on the trip and in the ranger station? {MW}
  • Aliens hunting without a license look like backwardish rednecks? They even got trucks with old-school tire wheels. {MW}

  • Pez (candy)
    • Bender got a Pez dispenser featuring Calculons head. This candy was invented in Austria back in 1927 and became popular as PezPals in the 60s. Still seem to be popular in the 3000s. {MW}
  • Sega Genesis
    • The professor uses this in an exclamation to express his disbelieve ("What in Sega Genesis happened to you?"). It's a 16 bit gaming console by Sega (called "Megadrive" in some regions) which lost ground against the Super Nintendo. {MW}
  • Spanish Fly (aphrodisiac)
    • The episode title. The Spanish fly is a beetle that was crushed and dried to create a powder said to arouse women. In fact, it creates an itching urinary irritation. {MW}

Animation, continuity, and other goofs...
  • In 4ACV15 "The Farnsworth Parabox", there is a paper laying around called Nosy Enquirer. Its headline is "Bigfoot turns 80". Wonder how he became a myth after only 2 episodes. Then again, the magazine could have been a satire paper. {MW}
  • The professor's hat disappears when he jumps up to question the ranger. That or he is really polite and took it of before speaking up. {MW}
