Episode

The City Zoo is a zoo on the planet of the primates. In 3013, Guenter took Bender, Zoidberg, and Amy there, where they discovered that Fry and Leela, who thought that they were on a romantic holiday, were secretly caged up in a human habitat. The four then went to talk to the zoo director — Dr Banjo. A week later, Fry and Leela were taken home on their automated shuttle.

Casa Isolada Eco Resort[edit]

Casa Isolada Eco Resort is the front for the zoo's human habitat. It has a pool and a bar. It uses pairs of robot hands as employees.

Humans have been vacationing in the habitat for years. Leela was previously there with her old boyfriend Sean.

When Sean returned to the resort, with his wife — Darlene —, the zoo quickly invited Leela back, as a behavioural experiment, keeping Sean and Darlene there under the pretext of shuttle repairs. The human exhibit had never been so popular, and the zoo even went as far as selling Fry wigs.
