When we first saw Leela on the show, she was the only creature of the planet with one eye.  Then we learned she grew up in an orphanage.  But we didn't find out until season 4 (was it?) that Leela was a sewer mutant.  What did everyone think when they first learned Leela was a sewer mutant?  Also,  when I first saw it, assumed that when Leela was growing up, she was shuffled from foster home to foster home.

I liked it, because if she had been from another planet, it would've been too cliche.
Anyone else want to put their 2 cents in?

I hated the fact that she is a mutant. Plus I hate her parents. Being a mutant sort of... destroyed her in my opinion.

I can't predict the outcome of any TV show so it came as quite a shock to me.
I'm not sure if I liked her being a mutant because the sewers are gross and some other reason that I can't quite find in my head

Leela's parents themselves don't bother me. It's the fact that her spunky character dissolves like powder when she's with her parents. And that attitude also kinda dissolved at the end of the 4ACV season. But that's not the thread point, really.

To be honest the fact that Leela was a mutant didn't have a huge impact on me, although I couldn't see it coming, I was not really shocked by it.  I think this was just a one episode thing that  didn't really have much of an impact on the series as a whole.

I like the idea of Leela being a mutant- she just doesn't seem like an "alien" to me. Although that might be because I actually picked up on the show in the middle of McSeason 5.

her being a mutant didn't faze me in the least. Besides, i actually like her parents, and i like to see her interact with them. I hope they show up in the comics.

Well, you didn't do a very good edit of it - it still says "teh" instead of "the".

Anyway, Leela's parents can be quite pathetic and lame, although her father was pretty funny in TMLH. I don't really have any strong feelings either way over Leela being a mutant - although I would've prefered it if she was an alien instead.
