i thought this episode was fantastic. i especially liked when zoidberg was leeching onto Fanrsworth, then when he went "woobwoobwoobwoob" when he got knocked onto the floor. i love it when he makes that noise, it's so funny. i also liked disco and hippy farnsworth, and the teeth. i laughed alot more than when i watched Less Than Hero. really good comedy.

#51 Splee ---

I agree with those sentiments. The past two have been more of a an extend "what if..." episode.

However, I honestly feel that this is one of the funniest episodes of Futurama that I have seen in a while. Although several of the past episodes this season have been rather "emotional," I feel that many of them were not as funny as they ought to be.

Then, we get this episode, which is nowhere near as emotional as, say Jurrasic Bark or perhaps 'thought-proviking' as A Taste of Freedom. However, it delivers on where Futurama has been lacking recently --- good humor.

Honestly, I found myself laughing more at this episode than I have for any other episode this season.

Anyways, on the whole, the episode fared far better than what I had initially expected. A more of a light-hearted fun episode than what next week will be. Also, I enjoyed the fact that there was some sort of explanation of why they were getting younger, rather than just getting younger (see Less than Hero... never explained how the cream gives them super powers).

Anyways, overall, it is a great episode

Classic! Full of humor and pathos. Highlights for me:

*The Florida billboard.

*The nurse at the spa.

*Bender having a little too much fun with the pump.

*Amy coping--or not--with her chubby stage.

*Hermes looking like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air--and actually acting cool for a change!

*Leela deciding to make the best of things--with gusto! Actually a lot in character, since she was really lonely as an orphan teen.

*Any scene with 14-year-old Fry and Leela. The two make a really sweet couple.

*Leela has the coolest parents in the world. ("Bring some beer!" "Not until you finish your tequila!")

*Zoidy's BIZARRE larval stages.

*How kawaii Amy looked as a child.

*The whole Fountain of Aging concept.

*A chibi-fied child Bender.

*Farnsworth as a young hippie.

*Farnsworth as a little child.

*Being saved by a gargoyle, and narrated by a gargoyle ("and that's how I earned my freedom!")

Just three objections:

*Why couldn't Farnsworth have stayed young and not crotechy?

*Bender doesn't have any lines after becoming a child, and you'd think he'd have been like a robotic Bart Simpson as a kid.

*I'd have LOVED to have seen Leela's big beautiful breasts pop out back into her tank top while in the fountain of aging, but we see her at age 14 one minute and then age 25 the next.

Alas, you can't have everything. A solid 5 out of 5!

Very good episode. Little disappointed with younger-Bender's appearance considering he is only four years old and was always his size and even earlier a machine...oh well...glad to have some new episodes rolling anyway...

This episode was great, its story kept you watching and a good episode is one you acaully are waiting to see what happens.
It got me for a second seeing Zoidberg's bro die because Futurama has a history killing characters (Slurms McKenzie etc) but I know they cant kill major ones off. Minor they can because I dont care. :P

I saw this one as particularly weak and more jokes than usual were predictable down to the actual words (verbatum). Professor Farnsworth is my favorite character, usually I am laughing at everything he says. But for an episode surrounding him, it fell short.This episode was below average for Futurama. I am suprised no one else is honest about it (but this is a fan site).

He's gaining territory on Homer Simpson as my all-time favorite character.

The professor and his "thong" were side-splitting.

This Futurama was just pure hillarity.

You people giving this episode sub-par ratings and analyzing it down to the smallest plot twists need to get a grip and just laugh for once in your life
