Well that site is wrong.  Not about Yancy's age, but it lists both Enos and Mildred with the surname of Fry when we know they were never married.

really good point. Also, that proves that the site is wrong by saying Enos is Fry's grandfather.  no no

-Enos Fry, grandfather (though, he died in a nuclear test, and Philip fathered his own father).

I know, but by giving that, the site just proves itself wrong. It basically says Enos is Fry's grandfather, and then says hes not.

No, it's perfectly fine. It's only because of the PE crew going back to 1947 that caused Fry to become his own Grandfather.

Not if it's one of those closed loops (and I think it is) where he was his own grandfather all along, even if he didn't know that until he went and made it happen...But please, let's not get into a time travel argument...

Fry was always his own grandfather.  That's why he was immune to the Brainspawn in "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid."

That's beside the point though, because either way Enos and Mildred weren't married.  Whatever surname Enos might have had, it almost certainly wasn't Fry.

But what if Nibbler hadn't pushed him into the Cryotube, he would have never had gone to the future, then the past, then become his own Grandfather and gotten the Delta Brainwave, hence Nibbler wouldn't have been there in the first place. tongue

You are incorrect and you should feel incorrect.

The point of the article saying so, is that Yancy grew up to believe Enos was his grandfather. To Yancy, Enos really is his grandfather.

Sure, but that doesn't make his name Enos Fry.

Quote from: The Infosphere
It is believed that Mildred pretended her child was Enos' son and named it after Enos' father due to the difficulties she would otherwise have had in the 1940s as the mother of an illegitimate child.

Don't think so.  If he was a Fry, his name would have been Yancy, "...just like my grandfather, and his father, and his father's father, all the way back to minuteman Yancy Fry, who blasted commies in the American Revolution."

Just to point out quickly, he might not have been named after Enos' father, but Mildred certainly pretended he was Enos' son... otherwise Fry wouldn't've thought that Enos-whatever-his-surname-was was his grandfather.

Furthermore, she was definitely known as the mother of an illegitimate child, as Enos and Mildred were never married... they were merely engaged (and Enos was only dating girls because he was "supposed to"). It's possible that Enos and Mildred never even had intercourse. Yet, she'll have been known as a bit of a bike, for letting "Enos" knock her up without being married to him.

Hm. Just noticed something else. The Infosphere contains multiple errors with regard to Enos. For example,

Quote
Private Enos Fry was a United States Army private in 1947, and was Philip J. Fry's grandfather until certain mishaps changed the course of time (3ACV19).

Fry always was his own grandfather. The entry should read more like this:  "Private Enos Fry was a United States Army private in 1947, and was thought to be Philip J. Fry's grandfather until a mishap sent Philip back in time (3ACV19) where it was revealed that Fry was his own grandfather, having done the nasty in the pasty with his grandmother following Enos' death in an atomic test accident."

My point exactly.  Yancy Sr.'s grandfather didn't name his son Yancy, because he didn't have a son.  He had a daughter, Mildred.

Enos was never a Fry.  The reason that Fry thought that Enos was his grandfather is because when Mildred was asked who the father of her child was, it sounded better to claim that it was her fiancé who had been killed in an atomic blast, than to admit that she had gotten knocked up having a one-night-stand with a stranger who she never saw again.

Enos is a Fry, see http://theinfosphere.org/Talk:Fry_Family_Tree or more specifically:


Besides this there is no indication of which of the couple is named Fry. However a 1940's single mother hoping to keep their child would claim it is that of their deceased fiance and give it a family name to help encorage his family to support the child.

Ah, the DVD extras to the rescue once again. So, I wonder what Mildred's surname was.

Hopefully not Fry, Gliesner or Farnsworth. That family tree is complicated enough.

Multiple such errors unfortunately crop up, it would be impossible to hinder them and still have such an open wiki. But every time I come across one I try to correct it. Thanks for the remark.

No problem. I don't make much use of the Infosphere, but I have a fondness for it. It's the best of the Futurama wikis out there, and I like to see it displaying correct information, since it's one of the main resources new PEELers have for learning more about the show.

Plus, y'know, time travel errors and misunderstandings are a personal bugbear of mine.
