Tickle Me Elmo's fire
|Tickle Me Elmo's fire|
|First appearance||"Möbius Dick" (6ACV15)|
Tickle Me Elmo's fire is an electrical space phenomenon in which luminous plasma attaches to and covers objects passing through the Bermuda Tetrahedron. It forms the border of the Bermuda Tetrahedron, and is named after the fact that it has the effect of tickling robots. It is red-colored, just like its namesake. The Planet Express crew encounters it on its voyage through the Tetrahedron in "Möbius Dick".
- The phenomena's name is a parody of St. Elmo's fire, its terrestrial equivalent, and the Tickle Me Elmo doll, based on the Sesame Street character it depicts, named Elmo.
