One of the greatest episodes ever.
I love any episodes with Lerr and the rest of the Omicrons in.
This was also great because Zapp and Kif were in it.
I loved the "Wingus and Dingus" bit.

"Dude, my hands are huge! And they can touch anything but themselves...Oh, wait..."

This is probably the weakest of all the Season 2 episodes. It stopped being funny after the first five minutes, and a lot of the characters seemed oddly out of character here. Leela, for a start, was incredibly spiteful to the animal rights protestors, and rather stupid in the way she responded to Zapp's plan to give up an ape instead of her. And, at some points, Zapp even seemed reasonable!

Really a masterpiece. Balanced story, great cameo by Zap B.
Nearly profound jokes ;-)
An all-time classics as i'm sure time will tell

Throughly excellent, this is probably the most consistent, well-devised and, yet, so cunning and devious episode on Futurama's second season.
All the things to love about Futurama are here (interactions between characters, Bender's lines, cheap future depiction, comic aliens, etc. etc.), and the ep even takes one step beyond, by making a point about the "protection" of intelligent animals from Mankind.
And, of course, the traditional mark of Futurama's intelligent humour brands the whole episode through...

- "Unless this is a nude lovin', get the hell off my property!"
- "Pfff, you can't OWN property, man."
- "Yes, I can, and that's because I'm not a penniless hippie."

...and other snippets, like Leela crashing into the billboard exactly like on the credits presentation, Taranga Leela and Phillip Fry, the Popplers songs, and the hilarious Omnicronians... my God, this episode is so dense in good stuff, that it is absolutely inexcusable if anybody misses it out. Definitely one of the best Futurama episodes ever. Grade A++.
