How can you not love this show? The episode I watched today, “Gavin’s Pipe Dream,” includes an appearance near the end by Robby the Robot (an absolutely spot-on perfect recreation of the robot from Forbidden Planet).

It also has a funny bit in which Christopher Lloyd’s ex-NASA-scientist, who never throws out anything that’s still good (he has a garage full of Tang), pulls out his cell phone, and it’s one of the original, gigantic 1973-vintage Motorola cell phones.

(For another cool Robby the Robot appearance, see this AT&T commercial on YouTube.)
