Why does nobody like Harold Zoid? The Harold Zoid? Does he smell bad or what? Well, he does, but that shouldn't be a reason.

^ Ew, old lobster stink.

And how can anyone hate Amy? She's so cuuuuute! Even when she's blithely insulting people, she *almost* always realises and apologises. Too late, admittedly - but hey, I'd let her off, because she's so damn cuuuuuuuuute!  big grin

Don't want to hurt anybodies'feelings, but I think JDHannan and evan are right, I also choose Leela "Block-head" Turonga. Really I can't understand why so many fans love her so much. Please don't kill me, it's just a point of view.

MU monkey and (sometimes) Nibbler are next on my list

Some weird Klingon phrase.

Welcome to PEEL, beck and reverend.

Don't worry, noone will kill you for your point of view. We might fire you, out of a cannon, into the sun, but not kill.

Please explain the 'block-head' though, Leela is definetely one of the sharpest knifes in the Futurama drawer. I think only Farnsworth (and maybe[/u] Amy) can compete with her.

Thanx for warm greetings, Teral,
As for "block-head" piece - English is not my native language, and (correct me if I'm wrong) I understand it's meaning as smth. like "dumb" or "stupid". And I think, she's such, as everybody who wants to, can easily cheat her, even Fry can. Even Sean!  smile

She's the smartest character on the show, considering Farnsworth has gone senile. She's the one who flies the ship, gets everyone else to do their work properly. We saw what happened when Bender and then Fry took over captaining in BirdBot of IceCatraz.

The reason everyone can cheat on her is because she fails to get into relationships due to her eye and fear of lizard tongues   tongue That's not stupidity, just poor Leela.   love

I'd date her anyday.

As for Nibbler. Well he's Leela's little pet buddy. Not really important for anything except in a couple of episodes, I loved the Flying Brains episode, but so schwweet.
<-- How can you not love that?

Annoying characters:
Gunthur - Up there with the most annoying. Obnoxious, irritating, a headache inducing voice...
Michelle - Well I can kind of get this one. I mean Fry's no superstud, so he's more likely to put up with an irritating bint like this. Still doesn't stop me from hating her.
Cubert - WHY? Well I guess he was supposed to be annoying, which is why he only comes in at #3 on the list.
Harold Zoid - Again, why? At least he was only in one episode, but again, kept on whining and wasn't funny.

Hmm, I see a pattern emerging here.

Don't know and don't care if I said this elsewhere, but I've split the category of most annoying character into two.

Worst and most annoying female character:
-> Michelle
Worst and most annoying male character:
-> Chaz

Thank you for your attention.

Fry can get quite annoying SOMETIMES, but I'm going with Nibbler, Cubert, Zapp, Preacherbot and Linda (that TV gal, she's not as funny as Morbo)

Archie2K, I don't really want to start a quarrel, BUT your reasons just don't seem to be very convincing.
1) Being able to fly the ship proves nothing - robot-pilot (when not in love) can do and does that easily, much better than Leela. Amy did that easily after several hours' training (in The series has landed), as for Bender (in The birdbot...), - yes, he wrecked that tank, but he did never trained to pilot and was robo-drunk. Besides, being skilled in something & being smart is not exactly the same, don't you agree?

2)Leela gets everybody do their work PROPERLY? You mean - Fry & Bender, who actually are under her command? HA-HA! She may be trying to get 'em do that, but how often does she succeed?

Any other ideas about how smart Leela is?  smile

In "Amazon Women In The Mood" neither Bender nor Fry were intoxicated. And despite the fact they were two guys, to do the work of one woman, they failed miserably. Leela went straight into the ship in SP3K and mastered the damn thing in 10 seconds flat.

Beating the Robot Devil in a fiddle contest, even though she can't play the fiddle.

Saving Fry's life in "My Three Suns", saving them all in "Branningan, Begin Again", getting them into Central Bureaucracy and finding Central Filing.

Killing Bender in AOI, pretty clever IMO.

Compare that to Fry, who can't eat a pineapple correctly, Zoidberg who don't know what's up and down on an organic chart, Hermes and Farnworth who're one-upped by their own sons, etc.

I second that. Unlike Morbo, she's just a one joke character. And that "joke" isn't even funny anymore. How many diasters can one person chuckle at?

Morbo on the other hand is funny because he is a mystery. Is he a spy on Earth for his species? So, humans have easily weakened knees? My race will find this very interesting...very interesting indeed.

A very funny line followed by a very irritating chuckle.

Why do you all hate Cuebert so much? Yes, he is an annoying little smart-ass brat, but that's why he's so adorable! I find it hillarious how he gets away with insulting the other characters, and seeing all the characters hate him is always fun too. Besides, he does tend to speak the truth.
"Nothing is impossible if you can dream it! That's what being a scientist is all about!"
"No, that's what being a magical elf is all about."

Just because all the characters hate him doesn't mean WE should hate him. That's be like hating Zapp Brannigan for being an idiotic, arrogant, pompous jackass. All those reasons is why I love him! He makes the show more fun to watch!

That said, I don't find any of the characters "annoying", unless of course they're SUPPOSED TO BE annoying. Well, maybe Amy. Maybe.

If you don't mind, a bit different opinion -
"Amazon Women" - Bender  saved all the crew and even picked up some gold, while Leela's date attempt (from the beginning a very stupid thing to do) almost killed them all.
SP3K - Leela said she did piloting before she met Fry & Prof. As I said before, in Futurama's world it does not seem to be too sophisticated, but OK -Leela can drive.
Beating the Robot Devil - exactly beating,  not outsmarting. Yes Leela can beat somebody pretty good, but not the smartest boys in school usually act like that. AND again it was Bender, who saved Fry and Leela then,  wasn't he?    
My 3 Suns - what did she do? Amy advised to make Fry cry and Bender found the gentle way to do that, which would've worked if Leela didn't show up. One-eyed just splashed some liquid creatures (beating again),  and  then gave her idea of 'helping' Fry - AND GUESS WHAT WAS IT?! - more beating.
Oh, sorry, may be you referred to the beginning of this ep, when Leela saved Fry from organ dealersWell, I admit - she did. And you know - she did beat the bastards.
Brannigan Begin Again - no beating this time. Nothing smart either. We know she can drive, right? She needed to speed up to avoid the obstacle. Solution is obvious - order to accelerate. And all the dirty work was done by Bender & Fry, who actually saved the ship.
Killing Bender in AOI1 - well, if we agree to take AOI as smth. real, we will only see 'more impulsive' beating there, but not smart at all (smart killer wouldn't leave so many evidences of his/her activities).
Mind, that I used only the examples, you've provided. Teral , what would you call a tough truck driver, who will beat black and blue everybody, he does not like? Albert Einstein?
I know Fry's not too bright, and Zoidberg's definetly not the best human therapist in the Universe, but Bender used to be God, famous rock-star, Santa, etc...

1: Date attempt nothing. It was Amy's idea to go on a half-date. Leela refused even considering the idea, until Amy pleaded for her chance to get a date with Kif.

2:  It was Zapp who nearly killed them all. Even though both Amy, Leela and Kif sugested calling for a cab he insisted on flying the restaurant himself. On Amazonia, neither Amy, Leela or Bender ever were in danger of getting killed.

3: Yes, Bender saved them in the end, after being told to go to the Femputer by Leela. But that's really beside the point.

Err, when did Leela say she had flown a spaceship before? All she said was she knew how to "drive stick", meaning she knew how to handle a vehicle with a manuel gearshift. That could just as well be from driving her hovercar. There's quite a jump from hovercars to intergalactic spaceship. Granted some of it might just be intuition, but a good part of it have to be logical reasoning.

I didn't see Bender or Fry come up with a viable plan. They were in a thight situation, something had to be done, and that was the best plan they had. Yes, she beat him (bloody funny too with the girlish screams  big grin), but sometimes that's the best option, they can't all be McGyver. As for not outsmarting, I don't think Beelzebot saw the "drum solo" coming. The ensuing confusion allowed Bender to grab a couple of wings, and save the other two. And points to Bender for actually saving Fry and Leela, rather than abandoning them. Then again if he hadn't started to abuse electricity, they wouldn't have been in this mess.  tongue

So basically all you have against Leela is her tendency to use physical force when the situation call for it? I'm not saying it isn't a viable reason, just not the blanket statement you make it out to be.

1: The organ guys. They were about to kill Fry, infact they almost had the knife in him. Leela could legally use force to save Fry, and after the organ dealers took off, did she give chase? No, because that wouldn't be legal. Even when the knife were thrown at her, she remained by Fry (who didn't thank her).

2: The gentle way? By making him believe the love of his life were dead? Got ya. And later "gentle Bender" did join in on the "hurt Fry to make him cry"-thing.

3: Who alerted Fry to the danger of assasination, and got nothing but insults and arrogance in return?

No, she didn't need speed to steer clear, she had plenty of speed. She needed a way of navigating, and burning all the dark matter in one reactor gave her that. Acceleration without direction would just have resulted in a bigger hole in Neutropolis. Bender and Fry made the heavy work, no arguing here, but they didn't want to do it in the first place. "Awww, that stuff is heavy." Yeah, they were really jumping to action. After Zapp prepared to abandon ship, who panicked and ran to the laundry-brig?

The AOI stories aren't fantasy, merely extrapolation of the characters. How do you kill a robot with kitchen appliances?

Didn't he kill all his subjects? A pretty crummy God if you ask me. Yes, he meant well, and "Godfellas" is one of my favorite episodes, but in the end the Shrimpkins would probably have been better off, ahd they not encountered Bender.

Santa? Yes, and he quit after 5 visits. Quitter!

Well, what can I say - you know what you are talking about and it have certainly been some fun - something I always wanted to discuss.

Generally, we are reasonably satisfied with the  arguments we have read.  Overall, I would rate it a C+. As a result we will not destroy your planet but neither will we change our mind about Leela.   smile

AND, we were only talking about the eps, you chose to show how smart Leela is. There are more examples, showing quite the contrary...

I still have to check some of the points you've made (can't do it right now, as i've got i-net in the office and most of futurama stuff at home).

So far, wouldn't you agree that Bender (if nothing else) is LEAST annoying character?

He doesn't know me either. He just failed to prove his point once and, I suspect, has a grudge against me ever since.

As for all that "biased" and "bigoted" accusations well how comes that if somebody loves Leela, not paying attention to her drawbacks then he/she is honorable fan; and if somebody has a different point of view (like, - Bender seems to be smarter than Leela), and tries to prove it - then he/she is a bigoted bastard ? 

HDC, if you wish everybody to think the same, go talk to Hypno Toad - may be it can give you an advice on how to achieve that  smile

I wish your dreams come true - to have a look at you (I guess, you are a human being, aren't you?) trying to do that with 40% titanium creature  smile And remember things, HE can bend?

I only watched "Pharaoh" once (don't have it in my posession), but as I remember, he was pretty good there (as he usually is). What did annoy you so much?

AND, back to the point, I carefully studied your ideas on Leela's smartness. So far nothing changed much - you proved again piloting and beating abilities of Leela are good, though it seems that it is the consequence of inferiority complex, which she's got in childhood and which is still with her - to prove she is better than others, she learned how to pilot (which, I admit, seems to be much more difficult when you've got only 1 eye); to punish those, who were not quite convinced with that, she took som fighting lessons from old Fnog.
But that inferiority complex is still there, though well-hidden.  And it has nothing to do with smartness.
