* AssPull: The reveal that [[spoiler: Igner is Professor Farnsworth's son]]. First, the episode ''Mother's Day'' revealed that Farnsworth's affair with Mom took place long before he could have been born. Second, unless Mom managed to cover it up, [[spoiler: Igner]] didn't show up as one of Fry's living relatives in the pilot. It doesn't help that after the reveal, it pretty much never came up up again in the series.

** Bender telling the Scammers, he can figure out how to stealthy steal the doomsday device handcuffed to the Professor's hand, himself, only cut to him holding ''a bloody saw with the device still cuffed to his severed hand''. Somehow topped afterwards, when a flashback reveals the saw was ''dull and it took several minutes to work'' and the Professor was '''still asleep the whole time.'''

** In "Lesser of Two Evils" in the Old New York theme park there's a marquee that says ''Star Wars 9: Yoda's Bar Mitzvah''. Not only did Disney purchase ''Franchise/StarWars'' with plans to make a sequel trilogy (episodes VII, VIII, and IX) but it was announced in February 2013 that there would be a SpinOff movie based on Yoda.

* To some, Nibbler, as they didn't really do anything with him once the crew found out he could talk. In fact, he only appeared in about 4-5 episodes of the Comedy Central run, in which he spoke in only about 3 episodes.
