Trivia

The Slurm Queen's plan of marketing Leela's Slurm as New Slurm, and when everyone hates it, bring back Slurm Classic and make billions is a reference to what Coca-Cola did with New Coke. See more »

Goofs

Slurms McKenzie didn't really need to stay and "party" to trap the worm queen in the corridor, since his radio did most (if not all) of the work. But he made it clear that he wanted to stay. Apparently, after realizing that he couldn't escape the parties even on Earth, he didn't want to live anymore. Besides, the entire cave-in scene is humorously ridiculous on purpose (much like most of the series). See more »

Quotes

Bender: What should we point it at first?
Fry: I dunno. Try it on me!
[Zap]
Fry: Ow! My sperm!
Bender: Wow! Neat! Mind if I try that again?
[Zap]
Fry: Huh, didn't hurt that time.

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!
