Trivia Edit

  • This episode is the first time that Zoidberg takes off his shell.
  • During Kif's flashback at the beginning of the episode, Bender is seen throwing out the fake bracelet he received in "A Flight to Remember".
  • The title of this episode comes from the 1987 comedy film Amazon Women on the Moon.
  • The Femputer is reminiscent of ENIAC, the first electronic computer. She is also similar in appearance to Landru from the Star Trek episode "Return of the Archons".
  • The Femputer being just a false front operated by an ostensibly omnipotent while hidden operator is a reference to the title character in the film The Wizard of Oz, down to the hand-operated controls and outdated microphone.
  • The Femputer also has a connection with a Twilight Zone episode, "The Old Man In The Cave".
  • Several of the electronics on Amazonia carry the brand name Sonya. As mentioned in the audio commentary for this episode, the name is a feminized version of electronics company Sony.
  • When searching the jungle, Fry and Bender find a large empty can of TaB cola. TaB is a soft drink originally marketed toward women, and was created in 1963 to compete with the (then) only sugarless soda on the market, Diet Rite cola.
  • Zapp Brannigan's spoken-word rendition of "Lola" by The Kinks is reminiscent of similar performances by William Shatner, whom Zapp is a parody of.
  • The plot of this episode bears several similarities to that of the 1970 film Carry On Up the Jungle.
  • The restaurant, Le Palm D'Orbit, is a reference to the Palme d'Or awarded at the Cannes Film Festival.
  • The spaceship-restaurant is reminiscent of the bistro-starship from Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
  • The impact tremors of the approaching Amazonian women causing ripples in a cup of water and a puddle is a reference to the film Jurassic Park, in which the approaching Tyrannosaurus causes the same phenomenon.
  • The punishment of "death by snu-snu" is similar to the well-known joke involving two male explorers who find a jungle tribe, and are subsequently condemned, being given a choice of death or "oonga-boonga". One chooses Oonga-boonga and is raped and sodomized by all of the male tribe members. The second declares that to spare his dignity, he would rather choose death; the tribe then declares "Death... by Oonga-boonga!"
  • The comments made about the basketball on Amazonia are a reference to the critiques of the WNBA, and women's basketball in general.
  • The company named J. Crab that manufactures shells for Decapodians is a parody of J. Crew.
  • Leela flips through a real estate circular called "Westside Cave Rentals", a play on the popular California real estate website Westside Rentals.
