The Proffesor has got angrier and even more insane. Zoidberg obviously became poorer and Bender became kinda cooler and more street wise.

Amy got less clumsy and more committing in relationships I think... (could be wrong, I haven't seen that much of season 1) Scruffy appeared more later on didn't he?

Fry got more mature, Leela got more emotional, Bender got a  tad bit more sympathetic, the professor got angrier, and Zoidy got poorer. Hermes and Amy didn't really change.  But besides all that, the characters are still basically the same.

Leela isn't that uptight anymore.  She is way more easy-going now.

In the first episode with Zapp and Kif, Kif obviously hates Zapp.  He's more annoyed than depressed.  It isn't until later that he becomes the low self-esteem doormat.

And then escapes from under Zapp's shadow entirely in season four with episodes like "Kif Gets Knocked up a Notch" and "300 Big Boys". I thought there were some great character moments in both of these, but most people would rather him be a doormat for Zapp.

My favorite, and probably the most inspired Kif moment in the series was how he treats Fry in "War is the H-word."

The problem with "300 Big Boys" (which I liked, btw) was that it made Kif into Amy's doormat, or lapdog might be a more fitting description. In "Love's Labours Lost In Space" he was priceless, bitter, pissed off, and very very annoyed. As they say in the audio commentaries, he's how Spock should've been around Kirk. Genius. In "Amazon Women In The Mood" he was just shy and uncertain about how to express his love for Amy. Probably one of Kif's best moments. "Where the Buggalo Roam" did a good job of advancing both of these aspects. "300 Big Boys" made him too pathetic.

I agree, she's definetely loosened up. Drinking beer for breakfast and getting anoyed with Hermes and Zoidberg in "Spanish Fry" was another good moment.

Fry became more committed. In PYHOMS he wasn't a "one woman man" but by the fourth season he couldn't have committed himself to Leela more.

Umm... this is a squirrel. It's all smashed cuz the crazy neighbor man ran it over. He said it was an accident, but he's still pretty crazy. I think he moved away, but he keeps leaving weird drawings and stuff like this in my room. My dad thinks I'm doing it, and starts yelling at me to get a job.

I don't think she changed that much.  She became nicer to Fry, but that was part of the ongoing plot.

They didn't really say anything about her being an animal lover until the second season.  If she'd been like that since the beginning, maybe they would have made her a vegetarian.  That would have been nice.  But then there would have been even more inexplicable comparisons between her and Lisa Simpson, which I've never understood.

Zoidberg became lonely, smelly, poor, homeless, alot better than just "a bad doctor".

<zoidberg> *cries* </zoidberg>

Hermes changed. He got his hair cut once in "X-Mas Story". And then in "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back", he got reduced pay, and... yeah.
