  • Episode Description
  • As Earth is unable to counter its rising temperature through the usual method (the dropping of a giant ice cube into the ocean), Gore leads an emergency conference in Kyoto, Japan, where Professor Farnsworth claims responsibility for the crisis. It seems love detoured him from observing proper emission standards on his prototype robot, and that could necessitate the destruction of all its "descendants." That includes Bender, who resigns himself to having a farewell blowout before being blown up.moreless

    Notes (6)

    • Fry is wearing warm clothing, but it's never explained why. Scenes were deleted to show he stuck ALL his clothes in the freezer. They can be found on the Season 4 DVD.

    • Alien Code: The picture of the termometer has F 7 3 written on the right side.

    • When the crew goes to Japan, they pass by a sign that looks a lot like the Hello Kitty signs. It also has a phrase written in Japanese. When translated it says "I Love You More Than Your Mother Does!"

    • Alien code: When the professor shows the movie on Global Warming, Alien Code #1 is seen in another countdown. When translated in order it reads: "6, 5, CC4FF, 3, 2."

    • All the episodes from this Season are actually for the 4th Season based on production order.

    Trivia (22)

    • Flexo, the Robot Elders, and Robot Santa don't appear amongst all the robots at Galapagos Island. Response: the Robot Elders and Robot Santa are not residents of Earth (the Robot Elders live on the robot planet and Santa lives on Neptune), so they don't add to the air pollution and their destruction is not necessary. Of course, this doesn't explain the absence of Flexo, and the fact that Crushinator is among the other robots on the island, though she lives on the Moon.

    • Mr. Sunbeam from None like it Hot strongly resembles the Human Torch from the Marvel comics' Fantastic Four.
