"All the Presidents' Heads" could have made a pretty good two-parter, actually. It's a "big enough" story in scope to justify it, and they clearly had a bit too much material to cram into one 22-minute running time.

I agree. My biggest problem with the episode was the way they ended it; more time would've made it so much better.

Yeah, it would've been a lot better if they had enough time to properly work out the time travel mechanics of that one - there were a lot of cheats in the writing that they had to implement in order to execute it all within 22 minutes.

I think 'Meanwhile' could've also worked very well as a two-parter. The story definitely was vast enough to fill up the extended runtime, and it would've given us more time for the setup to the frozen universe - more time with Bender and the rest of the Planet Express crew. The entire first part could've been setup for the Frozen Universe, further explaining and displaying the Time Button's abilities, and could've ended with Fry freezing everything. Then, the second segment could've been exclusively about their lives in the frozen universe, showing more interesting and touching scenes, and giving more time to let Fry and Leela decide if they want to 'Go back around again' with the Professor. Which ones do you guys think would've worked well, if not better, as two-parters?

I'd want a 2-parter to reveal more secrets about the universe. Something epic like Fry and Leela's future children were meant to save the world. Also, Leela still doesn't know she's "The Other" so I'd like them to point it out too.
