I learned about this interesting little tidbit on the Futurama Wikipedia. Fry's name was originally going to be "Curtis". Then obviously, it was changed to 'Phillip' in honor of Phil Hartman. 

Also, Michelle's name was going to be "Janet".   Would anyone have liked it if Fry's name was Curtis J. Fry?

Since watching Futurama, I've decided that Phillip was a really nice name. I don't want to think Curtis is a nice name.

Curtis is... Well, I don't want to offend anyone who may be called Curtis, so I'll just say that it doesn't fit the character, but you all know what I really mean. XD

IAWTC.

I prefer Phillip J. Fry over Curtis J. Fry.

"That's her name, Phillip."
"Phillip?!?!:)

For people as nerdy as me, it makes me think of the guy character you had to play for one of the Lara Croft games. God he sucked ass. In fact, that whole game sucked ass.

Curtis sounds odd but it wouldn't have mattered too much since he would really br called Fry. also heres would be odd being called dexter like her was supposed to

I like Philp because it's in honor for Phil Hartman... Janet's is my grandmother's name so that's a bit creepy.

No.... Just.. n-no. I don't think I'd like Fry if that was his name...or I'd just find a way to not find out about it.

Hey, don't be baggin' on my name there.  My middle initial is not "j", though.  But that is my real name, just FWIW.  Guess that's one reason I liked the show so much.

I don't think I would have liked it any more or less. I mean, we still would have called him "Fry" regardless. Curtis J Fry doesn't sound too odd to me either.

Now see, this has bothered me. His father says that he's named after those screwdrivers. That would make him Phillip. But, everywhere else, he's 'Philip'...

Hmm...

Time warp?

Of course not!

It's the Second Noel!
