Any overly large or academic wording used is purley the fault of the author

Stop me if this has been discussed already. HA! You can't! HA!
When I see 2 eyed leela, I think bimbo. 2 makes her look stupid. 1 makes her look more of a leader.
Explanations: Our favoritism of more even or symetrical faces? That the one large eye is just just a more perfect face instinctivly?
  up yours
OR
  up yours
Comparitivly, Leela's face was designed for one eye, both by our experiences watching her shaping our expectations and the creators design intentions. That our natural tendacy to see a certein face as holding a simple mind (ie, her face looks thinner with 2) is expanded. Meaning simply I'm making this whole thing up from nothing.

I've lost the concept  up yours  of what I was meaning to say, so I'll stop. Jump in anyone

I've always favored one-eyed Leela to two-eyed Leela. Looks more natural, and a hell of a lot cuter.

I don't think 2 eyes makes her look like a bimbo, but odes make her lose her uniqueness.

What's up with the fascination with the finger-smilie? It's a great way to make people not respond to your topic.

Definately one-eyed, because she was designed that way. A two-eyed Leela isn't... well... Leela.

i agree the two eyed leela looks a hell of alot like that news bimbo Linda, just look at them, the liknesses are uncanny.

besides, with two eyes, she look like a bimbo anyway, it is just instictive with that kind of "look" no real explination from me, just how i see it.

Except for the lack of a ponytail, Linda's different hairdo, her smaller nose, the lightbulb shaped head and the smaller lips I guess you could agree with you.

I wish I knew how to post framegrabs so I could compare shots from 3ACV09, "The Cyber House Rules". I just think biocular Leela looks downright freaky. But that's probably due to the fact that I'm used to her having one eye because it's how I've always seen her. I mean, I also think the Simpsons would look freaky with tan-colored skin.

I like her better one eyed--of course--but for some reason I can't fathom what a real person would look like with one giant eye. In my imagination--not good

well, when i first saw her with two eyes i thought it looked terrible! but after a while i thought she looked really preety as a two-eyed person. but then, when she became one-eyed again at the end of the ep, i thought that looked terrible but at the same time i thought yah she is back to normal!

i guess at first, i hate the change but then it dosent take long for me to get use to it.

though when i saw her for the first time i didnt really notice that she only had one eye....on the other hand my friends were like "omg does she only have one eye!?!?" right away

<--That is sooo cool teral!

I dunno, I thought she looked really wierd with two eyes, and not as pretty.  I was glad when she went back to normal.

I agree, two eyes looked weird and unusual, while one eye is unique and cute. To quote David X Cohen (who quoted someone elese): "'there is no greater beauty than a face of imperfection'"

I agree with Teamo - at first I was like "Yikes!" then by the end of the episode I felt comfortable with it.

Or so I thought, until she was one eyed again.  Then I felt like "all is right with the world" again.

Which in turn made me think, MAN they did that well.  Just when they had duped me into thinking 2 was ok they slammed my in the face with my own hypocrisy! 

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but it was a good ep for that reason alone in my book.

We'd probably have to ask the guys at Hip Joint.de for permission first.

Anyway, I watched "The cyber House Rules" today (vacation, woohooo!),a nd I noticed something about the way Leela's two eyes are positioned. The down-pointing V-shape make her look annoyed.

No matter how the mouth turned, the eyes always have this frown-quality about them. So as a result she always looked annoyed or miffed about something.

Maybe why one-eyed Leela look so much cuter.

For some reason, two eyes just doesn't work with Leela. One eye just makes her so good looking.

I also agree with Teamo.  Two eyes wasn't horrible after you get used to it (cos I saw the ep again the other day) but one eye looks better and gives her face more emotion.  In real life, I think I'd rather have her with two eyes, though.

That  Leela smiley is now my new favorite smiley.  Really cute, Teral!

Scooty-puff Jr:  I sent you a lengthy email instead.

I think the animators gave Leela "asian" type eyes, that didn't work as well with her nose as would round more Fry-like eyes.  Of course they may have been emulating the ovular shape of her original eye.  I think she looked too much like Amy, and Leela's having two eyes brought out the biggness of her nose.

Annoyed is her normal state.  Leela can be a tender soul at times, but she is perpeptually pissed-off about something.

She can still frown with one eye - the way she rolls it when annoyed (quite often) says more than any words can.

Ever think that Adilia(?) was/is Linda's cosmetic surgeon? Maybe that's why there was a likeness.

I have this to say (Get something to eat. It may take awhile)...

If Leela was introduced into the series as a non-cycloptic being people would've gotten used to her like people got used to her have one eye. Now then imagine that she had a surguery to get one eye (For some reason or another) then everyone would think she looks weird and freaky and bimbo-y.

So My point is that everyone is accustomed to the one eyed Leela. Although the producer or Charater designers could of made have two eyes to begin with.

But I think if Leela had gotten a better cosmetic surgeon who knew what they were doing she would've turned out a lot nicer than she did.

Leela looked OK with 2 eyes - it was just not the Leela that we have come to know and love.  Leela was happy with looking 'normal' until she realized that even with 2 eyes, she was the same person.  She was not going to give up the self-respect that she had worked/fought hard for her entire life to be 'normal'.  Seeing little 3 eared and 1 tail Sally bought back all the memories of being different - and having her boyfriend look at her as being 'abnormal' made Leela realize how narrow minded and bigoted Adlai was.

I'm glad it was a one time thing - I kinda like the cyclops Leela.
