This is really a classic episode. The hypnotoad, the news, Leela and the Nibblonians, the plot holes and spelling errors, etc etc etc... wow. Nicely done indeed. Ah memories.

Now this was a really loaded episode. I mešn the pet competition scene was an instant need to mention the PERFECT hypno-toad...i mean, exspecially this was one of the greates jokes ive ever known...the rest was like the makers were stoned all the an awesome theory of the beginning of the universe !

I thought this one was great!

In case you guys haven't realized it yet, this episode is a piss-take of the classic:
The Day the Earth Stood Still

But I guess the folks writing these scripts are a bit older...!

It was about time someone did something about Nibbler. I was getting tired of the same "incredible-edible-machine" joke.

Then, of course, there was the popular interplay between Leela and Fry.

And Fry gets to save the world again using his powers of stupidity.

The characterizations of the brains is hilarious.

One choke up, though. If the brains made people stupid by interfering with their brain waves, why do robots get affected? Unless, of course, they use a technology similar to human brains.

The beginning was hilarious, you have to admit. And the hypno-toad was great.

Not the greatest episode of the lot, but, all in all, I feel this the standard Futurama should continue to have if it wants to be as popular as Simpsons. Unfortunately, you still get the occasional episode, which loses the plot completely ("Leela's Homeworld?" and the Slurm one?). This is one of the better ones.

Damn you all ;)
I just thought I could write a review on this episode by just saying: "All glory to the hypno-toad"
And what must I read? 3 Guys already said that.

Shame on you!

A different but brilliant episode. Completely crazy, loads of jokes and stupidity and absolutely hilarious. The scenes where Fry and Leela were trapped in the stories seemed to drag on a bit but overall absolutely hilarious and an unexpected ending. Well done writers, but I'm glad not EVERY episode is as crazy as this.

The Hypno Toad was one of the funniest things I have ever seen in Futurama. "And the winner is... The Hypnotoad" Then you see him staring at the guy. That sound it makes is priceless.

But no one has commented on the ending (well, maybe but I only read a couple reviews)... Excellent. I never thought fry could do something so clever.

This episode warrants 5 points for the Hypno-toad alone... but when you throw in all stupidity and everything else.... there should be a higher score!!
