Additional information


  • The name "Bev", an abbreviation of the name "Beverly", is used here as an abbreviation of the word "beverage".
  • In a podcast, Matt Groening states that, in terms of character design, Bev differs from his other characters in that, unlike the others, she, "isn't recognizable in silhouette."
  • In a podcast, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen both state that while Bev was being designed, it was unsure whether she should be the type of vending machine that drops down a can, or the type that first drops a cup, and then pours the drink into it. They finally opted for the latter, as it would then be much easier for things to go wrong while operating it (Hence adding more humor to the show).
    • Yet, she places cups when the drink nozzle is still out.
