I always wonder why the creaters of Futurama made up Randy. He really has no reason at all.

Well in "I, Roomate", he was just an anonymous face in a mob.  My guess is that the producers just liked John DiMaggio's voice for him so much that he had to keep coming back again and again.

He's a funny stereotypically flamboyant man with a funny voice.  If you don't find that funny, then I just don't know what's with you...

yeah, his purpose is just a joke, just like Scruffy, Hattie, and Sal to name a few. The show could go on without them, but their characters are just funny.

Man, you know who was the most unforgettable joke character? Even more unforgettable than Randy? That guy who said "Bender, hey Bender, over here!" which prompts Bender to say "Aw geez, I went to high school with that guy". That robot should have his own sitcom where he keeps running into other robots he went to high school with.

EDIT: If you want to know why Randy likes pink...

IT'S BECAUSE HE'S GAY GAY GAY

I know he is gay but still that pink hurts my eyes. And if men even wear pink it is more samony than hot pink.

He's a flamer spacemonkey...it's supposed to be funny.

@TLI: Good idea ,says FOX, but didn't that guy get run over by Fry's lunar rover?

Why, yes... but that's the genius of Lampy's idea... the entire series is told in flaskback, as we see the guy thinking about all the times he did what he loved while he lays there dying! It'd be perfect!

The only thing that confuses me is in one ep. Randy has brown hair! I know he can die it ,but still. If my sister did not tell me it was Randy with brown hair I would now know it was him!

Animators screw up, and TV shows need characters. That's about all there is to it.

Breeanne, All I can remember is that Randy says to Farnsworth '' Move your rinckley old kester!''  :( I can not remember the name though!

He says that in "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles," but he has blond hair in that one.  But there are some others, including "Crimes of the Hot," in which he has dark hair (or it's another guy who just sounds like him).

yeah, that's questionable if that's randy or not randy, I think we've debated it before, but he doesn't look a Randy panda to me...  :rolleyes:

Maybe Randy has a twin brother who dyes his hair brown.  Or maybe brown is their natural color and Randy dyes his blond?

   :rolleyes:
On a side note, I think he looks better blond! LOL

....or maybe that's just a gay guy. The Randy we know has blonde hair; not every gay guy has to be Randy. There's more than 1 in the world.

I don't think that the animators intended the guy on the ark to be Randy.  I think it's just a case of John Di Maggio using the same voice for two different background characters.

Thank you, Jicannon. That's what I been sayin' whenever the 'brown haired Randy' issue comes up.. It's so true.
....Why am I here again...
Oh yeah.

What about the pool scene in Why Must I be a Crustation in Love? Is he the same guy who has the ark? Is he actually Randy with brown hair? Or is he another fellow with the same voice?

If you look closely, you'll notice that he's wearing the same swimsuit (sans neckerchief and hat).  It's just been colored differently.

Again, it's probably just another gay guy. Although David A does present a good point...they have the same swimsuit and curly chest hairs.

In the DVD commentary for that episode, I believe they say it is Randy.

Randy is in the show because...he's great. He's my favorite out of those minor characters like Sal and Scruffy (both of whom I dislike, and they're basically both lazy people with annoying voices). Randy always gets a laugh out of me.

John DiMaggio may say he is fabulas becuse he is the voice of him. I do not think he is fabulas! Funny but not fabulas.

Randy's there because they need a gay guy on the show, and besides, he's funny as hell.  "Hey grandpa, move your wrinkly old kiester!"
