I like Leela's parents, especially in TMLH, but it kind of bugs me that they look so similar. I mean, we see lots of mutants, and none of them look as much like each other as the Turangas do. Is this an incestuous relationship, an incredible coincidence, or what? I think it might have made more sense if only one of them had one eye, or if we saw some other one-eyed mutants to make it clear that this is a common mutation.
It's probably just a coincidence that two people with such similar mutations live in the same city. But it's not unlikely that once they know eachother they would feel more attracted to eachother than to other mutants. They probably started out as friends, what with their similar looks and all, and then it evolved from there. Did anyone understand any of that, because I'm not sure I do myself.
Unless those sneaky Nibblonians have something to do with it.
As for Leela's parents, I'm reiterating myself, but: I like some of their scenes, particular from TMLH and her father in the fishing scene in LTH, but I dislike, with a passion, the pathetic, whining versions we saw in most of LTH, and saw some hints of in "Leela's Homeworld."
"I know we only came through the door 3 seconds ago, and have only seen 1.5% of the museum, but Leela isn't here, she must hate us and wish we where dead. Come let's go." Eeeugh
But, "Can't I just beat up the kid?" and "Not before you finish your tequla!", now that's funny.
