A classic!
except for Bender-sleeping-with-the-penuins (small joke stretched too wide), it was hilarious.

Great episode. Wiggles was great and the end when the penguins all get eaten ruled. Also, Zoidberg had some class lines.

While this might not be the best episode 'technically' or otherwise, it made me laugh more than any other.

The timing of nearly every joke was perfect. The look on Zoidbergs face as he watches a plate of food hit the wall, the the brief moment before hitting the floor to eat it. Benders reboot sequence, and following love scene with the penguins.
This is futurama at its funniest.

Not the best but i've seen a lot worse. Of course this could be because 'That's Lobstertainment' was broadcast just before.

Excellent use of characters, showing their flaws with reckless abandon.

Good points:
Bender's penguin act.
Bender's R2D2 impersonation.
The 'toboggan'.

Bad points:
Storyline became a little sketchy in parts (for continuity freaks only).

Best Lines:

(Bender crashes, zaps with electrical discharge while emmiting painful whistles a la R2D2, then restarts.)
Bender's CPU:'Scanning Local Life. Restart Mode: Penguin. Loading Penguin Language.'
Penguin:(To Bender, Subtitles)'Full of fish?'
Bender:(Subtitles)'Not entirely.'
Penguin:(Subtitles)'Then let's fish!'

(Tanker spills dark matter, tidal wave approaches Leela)
Leela:*Exasperated sigh*
(Leela, pulls her hood tight around her head)

(PE ship lands on iceberg)

(Fry snaches bender from the killer whale's mouth)
Bender:'Permission to come aboard Wiggles?'
Fry:'Permission granted, i couldn't leave my captain could i?'
Leela:(gripping onto ice)*Clears throat*
Bender:'Oh yeah, you better bring in my toboggan.'

And to top it off, how could the episode possibly end any better than that?

This was definitely one of the best futurama episodes. I have only one thing to say:

"If your hands get cold, put them between your buttocks. That's nature's pocket".

This is possibly the best line in television history.

The change of scenary in this episode keeps it fresh in my mind and contributes to the epic feel of the show.
