This episode contains contradictions to the rest of the series and also within itself. Filbert claims the first time he met Heffer was when he was working as a sample distributor but then also met him for the first time in high school. Rocko is shown going to O-Town High, but it is known that Rocko finished school in Australia before he came to the U.S.
In the past, Ed Bighead has a nose; yet, he makes it obvious in Canned that toads don't have noses. Furthermore, why are we picking apart the goofs of an abstract, satiric cartoon?
In this episode Mr. Bighead says he had a human face, but in an earlier episode with a Mr. Bighead flashback he still has the face of a frog.
In Put to Pasture when the teacher looks at the light bulb projects, he stops at Rocko's group, and Heffer's shirt is off. However, he still has the H on his chest, suggesting that the shirt was mis-colored to match his skin tone. It is later corrected when the view changes.
Heffer: (About the light he's generating) Rocko! It's BEAUTIFUL!
(after Heffer eats all of Filburt's potato chips)
Filburt: You full yet? You've eaten almost everything in the room! Oh wait a second, here's the potato chip bag! (stuffs the bag into Heffer's mouth) There might be a crumb in there! Yeah, you like that, huh, you like eatin' that?! Wait, wait. You didn't eat this yet! You wanna eat this, too?! (stuffs a motor into Heffer's mouth) How's that taste? C'mon, what else can we stuff in your fat mouth? Oh, here ya go. Since you ate the potato, you can eat the light bulb! (throws the light bulb into Heffer's mouth)
Filburt: (mumbles his plans about how to make use of his potato chips) I can put this one here, so I can forget this. And I'll have this one tomorrow for cartoons. And this one fo-- (notices that Heffer wants his potato chips) Oh no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no! I'm not giving him nothin'! I got plans for these chips! You ate yours, fat boy! These babies are mine!
(a badly disguised Heffer starts eating Filburt's free samples)
Filburt: How does it taste, friend? (Heffer continues to eat) I say, how does it taste, friend? (Heffer still eats) Okay pal, how 'bout saving some, huh? (Heffer walks away) The nerve of that guy! (a newly disguised Heffer shows up and starts eating again) Hello, ma'am. What do you think of our stuff? (Filburt takes off Heffer's disguise) You! I know your face, pal!
Old Lady: Excuse me?
Filburt: Oh no, ya don't! You're not gonna fool me, again!
Old Lady: Huh?
Manager: Filburt, what the heck are--
Filburt: Oh no, ya don't!
Manager: Are you crazy?!
Filburt: Just back off!
(Heffer then shows up unmasked and starts eating the rest of the samples. Filburt screams)
Customer: I'd like a free sample.
Filburt: Hmm... I don't think so.
Customer: But I don't under--
Filburt: Just walk away!
Filburt: I said get outta here!
Manager: Giving out free samples isn't all fun and frolic, y'know. It's got a dark side!
Filburt: Like what?
Manager: Like this! (takes out a drawing of Heffer)
Filburt: Who's that?
Manager: This is a parasite. He feeds off of free sample givers like yourself. He's a master of disguise.
Filburt: Don't worry, boss. I've got an eye for creeps...
(Norburt and Gilburt look at an old picture of Rocko and the gang)
Gilburt: (points at the picture of Heffer) Who's the big fat guy?
Norburt: That's Uncle Heffer; the one you take after.
Filburt: Wait, how do I make everything all wiggly?
Missy: The green one, daddy.
Filburt: (presses button) When you were just babies... (everything becomes wiggly)
(the room begins shaking)
Filburt's Daughter: What's happening?
Filburt's Sons: Dad's reminiscing! (set up lawn chairs)
Shellburt: I have a question oh father.
Filburt: Yes, Shellburt?
Shellburt: Father, Why would anyone put a banana in the refriger-izer?
Filburt: A banana! I haven't seen this in seventeen years. Oh Rocko and . . . that fat guy.
Shellburt, Gilburt, Norburt: Uncle Heffer.
Filburt: Right, Uncle Heffer.
Filburt: What did I tell you two about coming here?
Gilburt & Norburt: That we should stop by as often as possible.
Filburt: Oh, yeah.
Norbert: Why do we wear these things on our shoulders?
Filburt: Because it's the future!
Filburt: Free stuff! Stuff for free! Sample stuff for nothin'!
Heffer: (with a drop of liquid in his hand) I love the future. (drops another liquid and it becomes a hamburger) I love the future.
(after a rocket goes through Rocko's house and they go speeding up)
Rocko: So, Filburt, what have you been doing these days?
Filburt: Are you kidding?
Heffer: (singing) Nine hundred bazillion bottles of root beer on the wall/Nine hundred bazillion bottles of root beer . . .
Dr. Hutchinson was not shown in this episode. She was not even mentioned in "Future Schlock," in the future or the flashback.
The bumper stickers on the rocket read, among others, "Mars," "Venus," and "Canada."
