Which do you think is better?
I like how she looks with both to tell the truth. She is unique with her one eye but she is more human with two. Check on the pics and see which you prefer:

She looks better with one eye, because the eye she's got is so oversized. If she had one normal-sized eye in the middle of her face, it would look weird. Also, in a majority of cases, she is seen from a side 3/4 angle with her hair falling over one side of her face, giving the impression of 'normality' at a glance. I had a friend who had only ever watched a few scenes of the show and who didn't realise Leela only had one eye until about the 4th time she'd seen it.

She's looking cute wether she has one eye or two... *smilesgently* not that I care about what she looks like. She's always my favourite character... even if she had five eyes I wouldn't care!   love

In Space Pilot 3000 I think there is a straight on shot of her eye with the hair drawn straight down the middle of the eye. It looks rather odd and unflattering. I think the animators realised this and so decided to always do shots from a diagonal-on angle.

I think the animators deliberately tried to make Leela look fake-beautiful in that episode, maybe making a reference to implants and so on. People should be happy with the way they are rather than trying to make themselves look more "beautiful".

Here's my favourite pic of Leela:

In the DVD commentaries to "Space Pilot 3000" David asked Greg Vanzo (co-supervising animator/director) and Rich Moore (co-supervising director and co-director of SP3K) if they encountered any problems when they had to draw a one-eyed character. At first it was difficult, but they used cheats like the angle-thingy and the hair. In fact they hoped Leela would never get a new hairstyle. Later it's become a great deal easier.

But I digress. Although it was nice to see Leela truely and utterly happy, the two-eyes thing was the main problem I had with Cyberhouse, it just didn't look good. I love the cycloptic look. That's the real Leela.  love

Lrrr: "Attention Turanga Leela. Your two-eye thoughts scares us. You stole our hearts as a cycloptic alien babe, and so shall your remain!! Or else..."

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

We're more used to her with just the one eye.
She should keep it though!

Having one eye makes her unique and special in a way. Having 2 eyes just makes her stand in with the crowd. Being slightly different is good!

Well, I personally like her with two eyes better. She just seems cuter, as well as the fact she seemed really happy from what Ive seen of that episode. Its like shes a baby, eager to learn about the world. Sort of.

she only looked freaky with two eyes if she was expressionless. If she showed any kind of emotion at all she actaully looked pretty good. But i don't really have a prefference either way

Leela's one eye is her trademark. It's like she's close to being perfect, but her cycloptic eye is her only flaw. I like her with one eye better. The only time I liked her with two is when she had to play the Single Female Lawyer with a googly plastic second eye. I thought that was funny because the fake eye was not even proportionate to her real eye.

Yes, one eye is the better of the two, although I agree that her hair and its largeness are reasons for this

Technically Cyber House was one of the first Futurama episodes I saw, and I taped it and watched it lots of times, so I kinda liked the idea of her having two eyes originally, but now I think the opposite.  love

Her purple hair and the pony tail is more of her trademark, I think. Also she the only one whose lips are always coloured. Besides her mother of course.

Let's once more go back to the audio commentaries on the DVD (I love that thing  big grin):

Matt at one time said, that he felt any good cartoon character is one that's easy recognizable in silhuet. That's why Bender has "Little Bender", Fry his "hair-forks" and Leela the ponytail. In that sense the ponytail is Leela's trademark, since the eye wont be visible in silhuet.

But otherwise her cycloptic nature is one of the first things people associate with her. That, the ponytail and her willingness to use brute force. I know I do.

You need to get a picture for your "PEEL personnel publication"  smile

If coloured hair works for Leela no reason is shouldn't work for real people, so long as it is done well.

I have a question.  When Futurama started, how many people thought "Leela has purple hair because she's a alien"?  I thought it was just Matt Greoning having fun with colours, like Marge's blue hair.

i never reflected on that, but the first thing that captivated me about Leela was indeed her purple hair in the lovely ponytail.  love

oh, and the eye thing.. definitely one. She looks really weird with two, and not just because im used to seeing her with one eye, she really DOES look weird with two... maybe its their angle or the fact that her nose is so small...

Leela: "Nobody makes fun of my nose!!"

Actually the animators wanted to make her nose even smaller, more like Amy's, who by the way, doesn't look weird with 2 eyes. I think it's just because we're accostumed to her cycloptic nature, and really that's the only true Leela.

I always thought of the purple hair as part of her alien-ness.

[starts to rant] I always like that purple ponytail. I noticed, watching the DVD's, that in the early episodes the hair flowed a lot. When Leela turned her head, it fluttered and moved much like a real ponytail. In the newer ones, it's much more rigid and motionless, as if she used waay to much hair spray. I much prefered the earlier, fluttering hair. Probably a pain in the  **** to animate, but damn did it look cute.    love [suddenly looks up, realizes everybody is staring at him, stops weaving]
