  • Episode Description
  • Kif goes to Amy's home on Mars to meet her parents. They immediately dislike him saying he's too much of a wimp. Native Martians rustle away the family buggalo because they feel they got cheated when they traded away their land in exchange for a bead. Trying to prove himself, Kif volunteers to get them back. He does, but loses Amy in the process.

    • The sleeves of Inez's shirt keeps changing from yellow to white throughout the entire episode.

    • Look closely:
      While Kif and Amy are kissing on the ground next to the crater, Amy's watch goes from her right arm to her left arm. It stays there for 4 seconds and vanishes.

    • Look really hard:
      In the scene where everyone was caught up in the sandstorm and spinning around fast, you can actually see that Leela has wrist devices on both arms at the same time!

    • Opening theme promotion: KRAFTED WITH LUV - by monsters.

    • Great Stone Face of Mars
      Probable reference to a famous photograph, which, due to a shadow cast by a hill, looked eerily like a face on Mars.

    • Zapp dubs himself the "Man with No Name". In the western context, he is referring to Clint Eastwood's seminal character from the movies A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly who was left un-named.

    • Fry: Hey, it's that 'the barbecue's over' sound again. The call with which the native Martians summon the sandstorm resembles the sound of the didgeridoo, a musical instrument of the Australian Aborigine people.

    • Where the Buggalo Roam The title of this episode is a play on a line in the folk song "Home on the Range." The line in the song is "Where the Buffalo Roam."

    • Public Service Announcement: Crying Native American
      A native martian cries after Zapp Brannigan throws an empty Slurm can on the ground. This is a reference to the 1970's public service announcement.
