Inspired by the debate over "South Park" in the off topic forum I thought this would be an interesting concept for discussion about Futurama.

I want to compile a list of injuries that would be considered fatal by today's standards, or at the very least highly cartoonish in nature that we have seen on the show.  You can use any character you want.  I'm going to start with Fry, because he has gotten more than his fair share of these through the course of the series.  Here's some that I can think of off the top of my head:

Had his head lopped off and grafted to Amy's body.

Had his arm cut off by Zoidberg.
When Zoidberg tried to reattach his arm the right way he lopped it back off again, and then when he messed up a second time he lopped off something else, something I think that most men would not want lopped off.

He had a steam pipe blasted through his chest cavity, exposing all his organs and tearing some of them apart.

His original hands were bitten off by a dinosaur.

He just recently put a nail through his hand while trying to adjust the sign on Osiris 4.


Now you guys try and join in the fun!  big grin

Cubert

His head got hit very hard into the closing door when he was the hump on Frys back

He was stabbed by Leela when Leela was impulsive

Fry also was electrocuted by the power line and hit by lightning in "Luck of the Fryrish," all within 20 seconds, then he fell down 50 feet to land head first in a trash can.

Totalnerduk, as far as I knew "AOI 1" is part of the show. No one said that the AOI episodes don't count, the fact that it didn't happen makes it even more cartoonish.

That's not fatal. The toy lodged through the Neptunian's brain, THAT was fatal.

Yeah, it's not fatal, but I also want the kind of injuries that are really painful, and usually something that wouldn't happen normally in real life.

Ok, thanx Zed 85 smile

He cut off his antenna

In "Fry & the Slurm Factory" he gets a hole puched through his body

In "Raging Bender" he gets punched, flattened, hit from side to side and many other things

In "War is the H-Word" a bomb explodes inside him

I know there are many more but I can't think of them right now...

I wouldn't really call it "cartooney", just "scifiey". Just look at Star Wars. Getting limbs severed is an everyday occurance in the future.

But since we're on the subject of pain:

Hermes was attacked by a pigeon
Fry and Zapp had their pelvises broken by the amazonians
billions of alien children were eaten

Well, I guess so. But I held my breath the entire time Fry wasn't breathing and I had to stop right when he choked out the candy heart. And I'm younger than Fry.

In the insane asylum, Fry went to a gamma ray check, considered a fatal dose of radiation.

Bender gets messed up badly with the giant electrical can opener.

What's up with that? He goes in lying down and the machine is punching vertically but it punches horizontally through him and it avoided his legs (Ok, that bit isn't such a mistery).

Well if it's radiation poisoning you want, see the first act of "Fry and the Slurm Factory."

Every geek worth the socks they stand in knows that a light-sabre would cauterise the wound and pervent death by bleeding. Shock is a different matter, thats why the alien in the canteena on Tatooine died (having an arm removed is far more traumatic).

Fry constantly depressurizing (is that a word?)  his helmet in "Time Keeps On Slipping"

Getting slammed into the ground by a tree in "Xmas Story"

Bender going for a fly in "Roswell That Ends Well"

Zoidberg getting an alien autopsy in the same episode.

I just thought of Fry sticking his head in the exhaust of the Planet Express ship in "I, Roomate".

As Nixorbo said before, he had his sperm radiated with the F-Ray.

These are all good.  I just thought it was really funny how some of the characters have all these things happen to them and live.  This is why I love cartoons.  big grin

Speaking of transport tube accidents, Fry got beaned in the back of the head with his large heavy suitcase in "A Flight to Remember." That would probably kill a normal person.

Also in "Ahead in the Polls" Fry gets smacked up really badly by the Magic Tentacles. In some shots it looked like his neck or back could have been broken. But in true cartoon fashion, he was fine and got smacked up again before leaving.    laff

Fry seems to survive the chlorine gas in "Lesser Of Two Evils" a hell of a lot better than the soldiers in First World War.

"Put Your Head On My Shoulder:" Fry, Amy, and Zoiby should've all died on Europa after Zoiby crashed the car, what with the temperature and atmosphere and all. Maybe the car's AC was incredible (keeping Fry alive with the top down on freakin' Mercury), but I don't think it was functioning after that wreck...PLUS, did Fry ever thank Amy properly for going through what she did? Unless Zoidberg takes painkillers with him everywhere he goes, Amy went through more than most people could handle, as he cut her open and attached all her major bodily systems to Fry's head...

...I suddenly don't want to discuss this one anymore. Or eat dinner.

...Oh, I suppose (a) Zoiby DID have his little doctor's bag ("Mmmm, delicious naugahyde!&quot wink with both painkillers and "Farnsworth's Temporary Atmospheric Displacement Suppressors." Or (b) the lack of oxygen made Fry hallucinate that he was still on Europa, and Zoiby just kept his head in the ice chest in the trunk until the rescue unit/tow truck arrived, then stitched everyone up in the PE building. No, that won't fly, 'coz then they could've just put his head in a jar...ngh...I think I'm getting a fever...

oh god oh god my heads on fire ow ow ow eeeeeeeeeeee (transmission abruptly ends in static)

Well, Zoidberg was carrying the St. Johns Morphine for Children with him when he cut off Fry's arm in the duel, so I imagine he may have had some this time too. But yeah, they could have died many times in that ep.   smile

I always thought the planets and moons of the Solar system had been terraformed to some extent by the year 3000. At least Mars have, and so far we've seen them alive and well on Europa, Pluto, Neptune and Mercury too. Then again the Moon isn't made habitable, what's with that?

And of course Fry survived baing instantly frozen in "Space Pilot 3000", even though all cells in his body should be damaged beyond repair.

"Futurama"s horrifying finale:

Just as he's about to finally win Leela's heart in the most irrevocable manner, Fry awakens in a hospital bed the morning after the cabinet closed. He's in bad shape, but the people in the cyrogenics lab found him and rescued him before it was too late. Fry screams, gouges out his eyes and leaps out of the fifth-story window. The end.

Write THAT fanfic. I dare you.

Atmosphere's not the problem.  Temperature is.  Mercury's so close to the Sun that no living thing could survive, even if they were in a car, and after Mars, all the planets are so far away from the Sun that it would be way to cold forpeople to survive, ESPECIALLY on Pluto.
