BBS Commentary trivia point

I'm deeply disturbed that this could be taken as a serious fact, and furthermore have it posted as one. I think we should just start taking all comments spoken during the 76 commentaries literally. -Mini-Me 22:46, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Care to explain? --SvipTalk 23:11, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
It was a joke made by Ken Keeler, someone who uses sarcasm and other jokes similar to this one in almost all of the commentaries he's participated in. There's nothing remotely close to Bender melting away in this movie and there never was in the first place. It was a joke, followed by laughter. If this is accepted as trivia then why not include that Ken Keeler may be suffering from amnesia or using recreational drugs that alter his memory? There are enough "points" in the commentary to signify that. -Mini-Me 21:33, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't see an issue with including it as speculation before the film is released. We even had the speculation that Bender's Game's DVD would include an episode of All My Circuits. Before we know the facts, we are to present what we know. If you are deeply disturbed by this, I cannot imagine how you would react to seeing ... I dunno, blood? Also, it is interesting that you come out and quip about it now, when we all know it to be not true. Why did you not speak up back then when we were all suspecting it? Yeah, you're as bad as the rest of us. --SvipTalk 21:58, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
In this particular case, it fooled a lot of people and led to its anticipation about its inclusion. There wasn't any real impact of Ken Keeler talking about having amnesia or a drug problem.Anarchy Balsac 21:49, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I wasn't aware of this being considered until now. I just don't understand how some of these things can be taken seriously with the comments preceding and laughter/sarcasm succeeding them. David replied, "Yah, get started on that," to Maurice's request for a full episode of All My Circuits. But whatever, I just want this place to give great, organized information and I feel that fact is somewhat misleading and useless in this article. I realize I'm alone on that front now. I didn't mean to cause any grievances, apologies if I did. -Mini-Me 22:41, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Actually, the All My Circuits episode was quickly disregarded as hope rather than actually coming. The melting story was much more subtle and their quip about "that's the plot of the fourth movie, isn't it?" is an obvious remark to spark speculation. But whenever it appeared, it was remarked with if and may. We didn't know, you didn't know. --SvipTalk 22:53, 25 February 2009 (UTC)


I love this page I guess. Should we set up a continuity sub-heading for the call backs in this movie? There are a few listed already and a few more that can be inserted, but I just wanted to get this out of the way before placing them in. -Mini-Me 07:31, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I wanted to do it myself, but the continuity sections on the others seem to have different purposes so I avoided it. In BWABB it seems to be contradictions, in BBS it's the opposite.Anarchy Balsac 07:48, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Technically, we see to use them as both. The one in BBS does mention some contradictions. But usually contradictions should go in the Goof section. --SvipTalk 11:22, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

where is disco stu

i see in the list of characters that are in the audience scene it says "disco stu" however i cant seem to find him in the picture. Is this true? or has he been cut out or something on the edge of the picture? -- the preceding unsigned comment was written by Rachel101.

We have been questioning the actuality of that. I cannot find him either. Hopefully, whoever added it, will shed some light on this, if not, I am removing it. --SvipTalk 10:34, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I think I see him above Crack addict. --User:Unit 3.0 16:20, 15 September, 2010 (UTC)
I slightly remember seeing Disco Stu in there before, but now I can't even find the Crack Addict. Where the hell is he? Fan Futurama 22:39, 15 September 2010 (CEST)
This is like how the Simpsons page has all those "[character X] vaguely resembles [character Y]. That can't be just coincidental" things. In this case it refers to the guy people hosed two above Fry, two left of Fnog, top row directly above Calculon, about half way between Ndnd and the right edge of the image and above that in line with the Pay and Chew bot. Crack Addict is in no less than five locations, four of which are two up or down from "Stu"s, but unlike "Stu" there's a deliberate one between the Slurm Queen and Destructor. - Quolnok 23:44, 15 September 2010 (CEST)
So they didn't mean to show Disco Stu, right? I mean... computers are robots, and robots are not flawless, unline certain humans. I'M ESSENTIALLY IN THE CLEAR! Well, now what? Should we remove it? Fan Futurama 00:21, 16 September 2010 (CEST)
Yes. Aki 12:48, 16 September 2010 (CEST)

Non-Essential Material

Amazing article, but I've ran into several pieces that seem to be either inaccurate or extremely unlikely guesses at trivia, and then instead of revising, the next contributor offers what they think is right, almost in a bickering sort of way. Also some pieces simply point out the obvious, or explain a joke that needn't be explained. Just watch the movie, then read this article and you'll see what I mean. So should this page undergo a bit of revision, or am I being too picky?
