Trivia

When the news reporter is reporting on teen singer "Wendy" (and consequently skips through to her tragic death), the album cover displayed on screen is a parody of the Britney Spears album "...Hit Me Baby One More Time". See more »

Goofs

The professor says that when time jumps forward, people continue acting normally but simply have no memory of what happened in-between. If this is the case, why would the group be standing in the stadium at the end of the baseball game, then jump forward in time but still be standing there the next night when the circus has set up? This isn't what they would normally have done if time had passed at regular speed. See more »

Quotes

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: I knew I should have checked that showboating Globetrotter algebra.
Ethan 'Bubblegum' Tate: I thought you knew that algebra was all razzamatazz. A Globetrotter always saves the good algebra for the final minutes.
