  • The Globetrotters challenge Earth to a basketball game for prestige points, and Farnsworth takes up the gauge with his mutant-atomic superman. But they are just babies and the crew must collect particles called chromitones to help them grew. This distorts

    This is my favorite eipsode and probably the best of the series. Because of the time-skips the plot skips past the uneventful parts, such as when Bubblegum says "we'd need all the money on earth..." and time skips forward to President Nixon handing him and the Professor a check for "all of Earth's money." The two best lines of the episode are: 1. When one of the Globetrotters says they'd need some sort of doomsday device, Farnsworth perks up and says "Doomsday device you say? Now the balls in Farnsworth's court!" 2. When Bender is putting the doomsday device in place and Leela tells him to be carefuly he replies, "What does it matter...my life and by extension everyone else's is meaningless."
