I think Smitty and URL should have gotten some more time. Also I think they should have had at least one more episode with the Robot Santa in it.

Hrmmm...

-Amy-Kif: not so good on their own, but together it was like magic!

-Santa: the whole reverse-Christmas thing is great, but only with the villian.

-Hermes: our favorite beaurocrat. Makes inefficiency fun!

Probably Amy. And Hermes since they're supposed to be major characters. In the 1st season all the characters had pretty much equal onscreen time but by the 4th it had become pretty much  Fry/Leela centric.

Ignar, Morbo, Santa and the Brain Spawn shoulda gotten more screentime.
Also Mom and nobody mentioned HGBlob. He's the best but has very little screentime. He's only really in one ep (I know hes in more but he doesn't do much).

Leelaīs parents- definitely more screentime
Kif/Amy- that would depend on how it would be handled (just hope be it better than now)
Conradīs family - I am not sure, I would like to see more about Dwight but kinda less of Hermes

HERMES, PROF. FARNSWORTH, AMY, AND ZOIDBERG SHOULD GET MORE SCREENTIME.

FRY, LILA, AND BENDER SHOULD HAVE LESS TIME. THEY HAVE TOO MUCH TIME.

Calculon and Lrr. My two fav characters besides Bender and Fry. they shouldve gotten Amy's airtime IMO. Amy shouldve just been around.

Hermes, Amy, and Zoidberg got enough screen time, in my opinion. I mean, part of their charm (albeit, annoying charm, but charm, nonetheless) was that they were always funny when they were used. But, a lot of the episodes that focused on these three (i.e., "How Hermes Requesitioned His Groove Back, "Where the Buggalo Roam (more a Kif-centric episode, but also Amy), and "That's Lobstertainment!" ), weren't as funny as the episodes where you focused on the 3 primary characters, but threw the others in for flavor (I just got really hungry all of a sudden).

Anyway, characters that should have got more screen time...

-Mom: There should have been more of a backstory with her and Farnsworth. And the three stooges...er...sons, of course.

-Zapp and Kif: They were funny apart, but hilarious together. As the series progressed, the writers started using less and less of these two, but nothing can beat the season 1 and 2 episodes that focused on the duo. (And also, you know, "Amazon Women in the Mood" and...stuff.)

Also, Hedonism (or Hedonist?) Bot really pissed me off, for some reason. He should have gotten less screen time, especially in TDHAIP. I mean, he was okay in small doses, but he was overused in the finale. They might as well have called it "The Devil's Hands Are...Oh, Look, Hedonism Bot!" (or, you know, something slightly more clever). I just didn't find him funny is all.

I think Scruffy should get a bit more screentime. He is one of the funniest characters! But come to think of it, his random poping up here and there is what makes him funny.....

If the show had been able to continue, I would have loved to see more of Lord Nibbler. I found both episodes that contained the talking Nibblonians hilarious and always found myself wanting more. Maybe in the DVD movies?

 (i.e., "How Hermes Requesitioned His Groove Back, and "That's Lobstertainment!" ), weren't as funny...

These were two excellent episodes, however, i do agree that these characters might not have been so good with more airtime than their classic pieces here and there.

But then again, meeting god could do the trick.

i also believe bender should get a bit less time on air. i luvvvs me some zoidberg but i like the amount of airtime he gets as is. But i do wish Leela and Fry as a couple should get more airtime of them being a couple. I also just want to say: WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP!!!!

Zapp got a lot of screen time. Can't say I want less of him though. Bender got enough screen time, though I don't think he needed anymore.

I Think That Zoidberg And Morbo Should have Gotten More Screen Time, If They Make Some More Episodes Maybe They Could Do A Spin Off Where Zoidberg And Morbo Are A Buddy Cop Team !!

If you did that, then Hermes would definitly need more episodes devoted to him.  After all, she is his wife

I think more episodes with Zapp could have been very funny. But maybe they ran out of ideas for his character. And maybe Amy because to me it's like she is almost non existant after mid-season two or so.

I would've liked to see more of the funy minor characters, like Sal and Scruffy.  Also, the recurring characters Zapp, Hermes, and Zoidberg could use a little extra screen time

Hedonism Bot should never had made it. Definitely the most left-field and freaky of characters (minor or major) on TV.

I would've liked to see more of Flexo though

It would have been nice for Amy to have a little more airtime.  I know that she is suppose to be a one-dimensional airhead tramp, and she also acted as a natural foil for Leela (I still smile each time I watch TFP when Leela lies her way out of a date with Fry by saying she has 'sweaty boot rash' and Amy (knowing Leela's lying) responds 'No spluh!  Why do you think that I'm sitting over here in the no-stink zone?'  The look of surprise on Leela's face was precious!)

No, for Amy to be able to keep the PE ship flying after the abuse that Leela, Fry and Bender put it through means that she has a lot of ability and talent in those clumsy fingers.  Maybe if the series got another couple of years they could have developed Amy a little more (but keep her as a thorn in Leela's side, for spluh's sake!)

I agree with Ralph Snart.

Also more ZOIDBERG ZOIDBERG ZOIDBERG.
Anyway, I reckon there should be more Zoidberg (as previously mentioned DUH), also more Enos and more Hank Aaron and those people who open the pizza franchise. And I just thought of an episode name that the writers could've used:
Fry, Robot

Amy always annoyed me. Leo and Inez weren't bad but the whole Kif and Amy thing was uninteresting. Especially the buggalo episode.
