7. And the Gross sisters. They aren't actually that weird (your average high school bullies) but why were they blue??

One prevailing internet theory suggests they were blue because they were extremely ashy. WHUT?? IDK.

10. Shia LaBeouf made a guest appearance as Penny's classmate.

From the Wikipedia description: " A classmate in Penny's algebra class; an obnoxious paraplegic who has a crush on Penny"

...tbh, I don't remember that...


18. ...including the best dance battle in animation history. WERK.

22. It also featured the struggles of minor characters like Michael.

Michael's father, the coach of the football team, was embarrassed to have a son that wasn't as "tough" as the other boys and he insisted he call him "coach" instead of "dad" in public.

23. And had some pretty zany plots too. Like that time Penny gets sucked into EZ Zapster (AKA Napster). / Via

"Penny is used as a tool to infect the whole world with a website marketing illegal free music downloads using the philosophy that "free music is our birthright." This episode is based on The Matrix."

Guest starring: Ray J as Mega (AKA Morpheus)
