Eugh, now I'm imagining a hot steamy Morbo/Colleen makeout session. Ew.

Hey, even horrid large-brained monsters need affection, too!  When they're not busy destroying Earth, that is.

And she's an awful cook.

HE WILL DESTROY HER.

Hell, whose to say that the Fawn we see was the same Fawn mentioned during Good Morning Earth and so on?  Maybe Morbo goes through spouses like a fat child goes through twinkies.

I really don't like Mom. But that's too far to call her as the worst character ever.

Nixon, on the other hand, irritates just like the original one. So he got my vote!

no no Mom is a great character! Her child abuse is hilarious, and so is her shifty bi-polar acting on and off the stage! Mom is the most hilarious billionaire...ever.

I think Mom is great... except when they have her being rude on camera. That is just plain out of character. Her whole schtick is that she is sweet in public but crude behind closed doors.

Not necessarily on camera, but in public. She is supposed to be sweet and in her fat suit every time she is in public. Remember at the end of ITWGY when Fry is reading everybody's minds right before they are supposed to blow up the star? Mom is not in her fat suit. That is only one example. I'm sure there's another but I'm at work right now and am terrible at coming up with examples off the top of my mind.

That example doesn't really count. roll eyes Considering how nobody but Fry could read her mind, it wasn't in any way or form addressed to the public...

Sometimes I wonder how Mom controls her temper in front of the public, confused.

What he means is that she wasn't using her disguise that she usually uses while in public. I don't know if it's simply an oversight, but interesting to note nonetheless.

She's not particularly family-friendly during the attempted takeover of Planet Express in "Future Stock." I suppose you could argue that everyone present knows she's evil, so why should she bother pretending, but still.

I love both Mom and "Future Stock," mind you. I'm just sayin' is all.

Thank you for clarifying, UnrealLegend. I swear I've noticed another example of this in the new seasons (either the movies or Season 6), but I can't remember exactly where.

She probably just holds it in until she can take it out on her sons. Hehehehe....

Possibly Overclockwise. She wasn't particularly cheerful in that court room.

Re-watching. I've seen every episode (YLL, and Holiday Craptular are exceptions) at least 10 times. AT LEAST. These lines and scenes start to stick after a while. We're true fans! big grin

I've seen every episode from from Seasons 1-4 probably at least 30 times. I haven't seen 5-6 as much - some of them only as much as 4 or 5 times. That is probably the difference..

I don't think Mom is necessarily lying to the world about who she is - she just has a carefully manufactured image for mass-media appearances.

It's similar to how Walt Disney behaved as he wished but would generally only appear on camera in scripted or carefully planned scenarios designed to perpetuate an image.

If a handful of people see Mom being all bitchy in real life, it's not going to particularly undo the mass-opinion of her created by advertising. You'll get people saying that it's all a lie, but they'll be dismissed much in the same manor that people who tell me not to drink Coca Cola because they're a huge corporation and are therefore "the man" are dismissed.

Some of these characters (Mom, Zapp, Farnsworth, Amy, Zoidberg) don't deserve the disgrace of being on this poll. Anyway, I voted Other, for Lars.

Hm, maybe I should've said that those five mentioned characters don't deserve to be disgraced by being added to this poll (I think they're all great characters and that Leela should be on here if they are).

Lars...well, I love the story of that movie but the Lars-and-Leela scenes got annoying. Too many corny lines from Lars, most of 'em delivered with that doofus grin. (Plus I gotta have Fry's back, even against himself).

I'm not saying the characters are bad by putting them on the poll, I just expect that since they're more significant than others, they're more likely to be mentioned as bad characters.

To be fair, I think the cornier lines are meant to hint at Lars's true identity (what always gets me is how he says "Up and away!" when he puts Hermes head in a jar in that first scene he's in; it's kind of charming and boyish. Also, "Is the screaming upsetting you?"--which seems like such a clueless, Fry-like thing to say). I agree that Lars isn't much fun to watch in the present-day scenes, particularly because his interactions with Leela tend to be either too bland or too cutesy--but you've got to love those flashbacks where you watch Fry really become Lars. Even if they're heavy-handed, I love the parallels between the Leelu and Leela situations.

You've read my mind, those are the parts that make BBS my favorite Futurama movie. I don't know why the corny parts annoy me when I'm usually all about the corn, but they do. Also, to me it seemed like Lars was waaay smarter (and smoother) than Fry. I suppose his sea voyage and losing Leela and then Leelu could've matured him, but it's Fry so not likely.

May I remind you, Lars had 12 more years of experience than Fry did. And you'd think that he would see life a lot different from all the exploring and searching throughout those years...

SGB: Yeah I touched on that, I just don't see it being likely in the world of Futurama. We've already witnessed 12 years of Fry's life (3000-3012) with no growth to speak of despite many trials, tribulations, heartbreaks, etc. I guess if I keep arguing it's gonna seem like I reeeally hate Lars, but I don't. I just found him annoying.
