Yeah. She's cool. I was watching some season one episodes "Flight to Remember" was one of them, whick LeBarbra was in! She is so much taller than Hermes. Strange Couple.

They did do an episode about Hermes, LaBarbra and his son Dwight, but LaBarbra wasn't around much.

LaBarbara? She's great  smile
I think she could be once the third female main character beside of Leela and Amy.
If she would be in more episodes.
If FOX would save Futurama.  no no
If ...
You know it.

I totally don't get it.  This character has not been developed yet.  There is not much to feel strongly about one way or the other.  She has received approximately the same amount of airtime as Scruffy, yet Scruffy commands a lot of attention because he's so colorful!  So far the writers have not done much with LaBarbara.  She may one day end up being my favorite on the show but right now I just can't see how anyone has the opportunity to develop a liking for her at this point.  On the other hand, Amy is onscreen constantly, and I suspect I would have to stifle a yawn if she weren't so darn cute!  The only time I took real interest was when it was alluded in TMLH that her father was verbally abusive to her while she grew up, presumably resulting in her narcissism and hedonism.  Finally, a little complexity in that quarter.  When and if they devote an ep to exploring LBC further, I will be able to say something substantial about her. 

Ow.  Now I cut my foot!  See what you made me do?  Stupid sharpened steel... Where's my oregano farm!?

I like LaBarbara.  Cool accent, snazzy dresser, takes no guff from Hermes.  Too few appearences to call her a regular.

That's cool  cool ... I'm just Swabian (South German) ... wait, did I just said "just"?  big grin Hehe, the Swabian accent is also nice and it would be a good accent for LaBarbara and Hermes in the German translated version of Futurama. But, sadly the people from Pro7 translated the nice Jamaican accent into normal accent-less German  no no

Pity about Phil Hartman.  It's said he spoke a fluent German and was even considered to have a sense of humor in that language.  He could have provided Zap's voice in both verions.

Yes, Phil Hartman died. He was shot by his mentally disturbed wife, before she shot herself.

She's also in "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back", "Route of All Evil", and "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles", and has nonspeaking cameos in "An X-Mas Story", "A Tale of Two Santas", and "A Leela of Her Own".

Ever since I heard there was going to be be a Barbados Slim musical, Hermes' family got more interesting to me since I never really bothered paying attention to how he's the only cast member to have a normal-ish family.

Also, LaBarbra always struck me as an interesting character even though all she got to do was insult her tiny pudgy husband since she rarely appears on screen, but there's all this random stuff when she appears like she introduces that she's had a kid, or the fact she was married once previously...

It seems like she could introduce more sides to her husband since there's got to be something other than ex-limboer turned accountant/part time assassin.

I have only seen one episode of her, so it's hard to say.
