Fun 'Animal House' spoof
20 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When the Professor hires his own delivery company to transport his latest experiment to Mars University Fry learns that due to advances over the centuries his status as a college drop out from the 20th Century is the equivalent of a high school drop out in the 30th Century. To remedy this he signs up for the Professor's class. He is somewhat surprised to discover that his room mate is in fact the Professor's experiment; a monkey that has been rendered intelligent by means of a special hat. Meanwhile Bender pays a visit to the local chapter of his old fraternity 'Robot House' and is shocked to discover they are the biggest bunch of squares on campus... he soon sets about remedying that!

This episode is best appreciated if you have seen the film 'Animal House' as much of Bender's antics with 'Robot House' are based on it; even if you haven't seen it I'd think you'd be amused at most of the jokes. Guenther the monkey isn't the greatest character but he has his moments; largely when he makes Fry look even more stupid than normal.
