Goofs

When Fry, Leela and Bender are being tortured by the Slurm Queen, Bender is put through a machine that will turn him into cans of Slurm. The machine punches one hole through him before he is saved by his friends. This hole is quite large and can be clearly seen on his side. When they are running from the Queen the hole disappears completely. However, later on after they escape the actual planet and they are partying on their ship, the hole reappears. It can be seen when Bender drinks some Slurm and it falls out of the hole and into Fry's mouth. See more »

One of the best episodes! Willy Wonka would be so proud :D
1 February 2020 | by charahvanSee all my reviews

If you love willy wonka, you must watch this episode. There is a beautiful , hilarious and incredibly cute rendition of the oompa loompas.

Family guy did a homage, but it wasn't as good.

This is a really funny episode , you will enjoy it from beginning to end.

I know I did!
