** They know planes are better, but the existence of cold fusion in their universe gives them a cheap source of slightly radioactive helium.
** Even though airplanes are more efficient, people in this world view traveling by zeppelin as [[RuleOfCool stylish and adventurous]], and thus airships are seen as something like airborne cruise ships.

Added DiffLines:

** The hero looks up at the sky and sees a Zeppelin (or just a big balloon shaped like one) and spends the rest of the episode thinking he's in another world despite all the evidence to the contrary. At the end of the episode, he looks up again and sees an airplane.

** The entire world is a gigantic zeppelin cruising through space, with people living inside it. Inhabitants traverse the interior (and exterior) using a wide array of smaller zeppelins - ranging from tiny one-man balloons for personal transit and repairs to full-sized liners for long distance travel.
