Did You Know?
The heads of Jon Stewart
(of The Daily Show
(1996)), Apu (from The Simpsons
(1989)) and Eric Cartman (from South Park
(1997)) can be seen among the many unidentified heads in the head museum. Stewart and Cartman's heads serve as an homage to how this film was produced with the intention of it later being split up into four episode-segments and aired on Comedy Central instead of Fox, the former home of Futurama in its TV series form.

In "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings," after Bender made a deal with the Robot Devil and deafened Leela, Leela made a deal with the devil to restore her hearing, which he did with Calculon's ears. In Bender's Big Score, however, she has recovered her hearing and has no robotic ears. However, it has been at least two years from "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings," making it entirely probable that she could have received enough treatment to no longer need the robotic ears.

You haven't seen the last of Barbados Slim! Now goodbye forever!
This direct-to-DVD movie was the 1st of 4 to be released after the tv series was cancelled at the end of season 5. When the series was to be revived on a different network, this movie was split into 4 parts, each part equal to the usual length of a tv episode, and shown first as season 6 episodes 1 through 4.
The other 3 movies were also similarly split and formed the remainder of season 6, 16 episodes in all. Finally, the new episodes made specifically for tv followed as season 7.
This practice was identically used for later tv syndication and streaming services such as Hulu. See more
