During the trial of Brannigan the Hyper-Chicken's beak is clearly an orange-like color and different from the rest of his body which is a turquoise color. However, this changes in the next couple of hearings where the beak has the same color as the body and looks much less like a beak. See more »

Brannigan, Begin Again
10 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In a display of incompetence which was spectacular even for Zapp Brannigan he manages to destroy the new DOOP headquarters during its opening ceremony. This leads to him and Kif being dismissed from the service. After walking the streets for a while they turn up at Planet Express looking for employment. It isn't long before he starts a mutiny on the ship and throws Leela in the brig (the laundry room). Fry and Bender are pleased until Zapp decides to launch a suicide attack against his deadly enemy: The Neutrals.

This episode is a classic that is still funny after several viewings; Zapp Brannigan is as fun as ever and his enemy, the Neutrals are so bland they are hilarious... one says 'If I don't make it tell my wife hello' Kif also provides so good laughs as he can't think of anything to say that doesn't in some way involve Zapp Brannigan... at the end I was almost disappointed when Zapp and Kif returned to their old jobs but I'm sure that is where they are funniest in the long run!
