One of the best episodes of the 3rd Season! I was never a big Nibbler fan, but this episode really excited me. It has a solid plot, great laughs "Curse you Tom Sawyer!" and a whole lot of Futurama feel. Do yourself a favor and tape this one!

Loved the "Nibbler Council" of nine, the Star Trek brain creatures, and the hypno-toad. Now all we needed is a triluminary. Laughing at all the sci-fi in jokes

Not the best episode i have ever seen. It seemed to be lacking... charisma? Can episodes have charisma? If so this did not have a lot of it.

It did have a lot of one liners that were FANTASTIC.

(Morbo spins on his swivel chair, loses his balance and falls over.)
Newscaster:(pleasent laugh)...You fell!(turns to camera and waves) Hi! Lots of bad things happened today, one bad thing was a train crash in New Jersey. Wanna see?'

Bender:'Fry! My heart's stopped!'
Fry:'Your a robot you don't have a heart!'
Bender:'Oh yeah, yeah. (cries out) Fry! My skin's all dry and clanky!'
Fry:'Your a robot! you're made of metal!'
Bender:'Oh... Yeah...'
(Fry walks out, Bender continues examining his body. He puts his hand where his heart would be.)
Bender:(cries out)'Fry! Fry!'

On the downside, this ep went a bit over the top. And the voice artistry for Leela being stupid, was wanting to say the least.

The best episode. All hail the hypnotoad.

"Now I Am Leaving Earth For No apparent Raisin."

The Nibblonians, the traveling through different books.

Come on, the hypno-toad wasn't THAT funny.

Anyway, this episode was really strange because it introduced a completely different view of Nibbler and the whole brainspawn thing was weird. A lot of things had to be explained for the plot to work (Nibblonians, brainspawns, whatever those brain waves were called). Then the very end, where no one except Fry remembers the incident, was kind of cop-outish but I guess will be important for "The Why of Fry".

Despite the plot's weirdness, this was a very funny episode. The pet show was funny, especially when Bender kept whipping Zoidberg. The showdown at the library lasted a long time but it had some good spoofs of classic novels. I liked the twist at the end with Fry writing a book.

Very good, albeit wacky, episode. I'm sure it will be important later in the series.
