Did You Know?


Leo and Inez Wong don't like Kif, and say so to his face upon meeting him. However, they already met him once before in the episode "A Flight to Remember." In that episode, they actually introduced Kif to Amy as a potential boyfriend, and are therefore responsible for the relationship in the first place. See more »


Kif is nervous about meeting Amy Wong's parents. It was them who introduced her to Kif in Futurama: A Flight to Remember, but he wasn't her boyfriend at the time. See more »


Turanga Leela: Okay, my turn to tell a ghost story. Once, there was this woman driving...
Fry: Hook on the hand!
Lt. Kif Kroker: Okay, I've got one. This family...
Fry: Man in the attic!
Turanga Leela: Fine, Mister Know-It-All-About-Something-Finally. You tell a story.
Fry: With pleasure. Once, not far from here, four people set out on a cattle drive...

A fun Kif led episode
23 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To celebrate Mars Day Amy and the Planet Express crew go to the Wong Ranch to enjoy one of their famous barbecues; here they are joined by Amy's boyfriend Lt. Kif Kroker. Things don't go too well; Amy's parents don't think Kif is good enough for her daughter and he is mocked by a local man who the Wongs think would be better for Amy. Things soon get even worse when, during a dust storm, the Wongs' entire herd of buggalo are stolen. Keen to impress Kif leads the group to find them. It turns out they have been taken by the native Martians who are upset that their ancestors were ripped off when they sold the planet for a bead! They manage to find the buggalo but then the Martians turn up and when they realise Amy is the Wongs' daughter they kidnap her and hold her for ransom. With their daughter held hostage the Wongs call in a real man to get her back... Zapp Brannigan.

This might not be a classic episode but it is still one of my favourites as it gives Kif a chance to take centre stage for a change and his character managed to carry the episode and provide some good laughs; it also shows that he and Amy really do belong together. Other good laughs are provided by Dr, Zoidberg who makes himself a little too at home at the Wongs house. The Martians, clearly based on the depiction of the Indians in early westerns where entertaining characters and it was nice to see them come out on top in the end... even if it was only because they hadn't realised the value of something they had already.
