A fan of That Guy? Who the hell would pick That Guy as an avatar? You'd have to be some sort of moron to do that....

That Guy was a really cool character, it's a shame he was too busy being an 80s guy to get cured. He was good while he lasted though :)

Ehh, That Guy was average good, some funny lines and some that fell flat. Solid, but nothin outstanding, like iHawk.

And That Guy as an avatar? What do I look like? A guy who's not a Leela-holic?

Honestly? I think it's because all of a sudden the 80's are now "cool" and therefore everything dealing with the 80's is cool by default. (Alf, Mr. T, Michael Jackson...) That's why we all love That Guy, because he's so 80s. Totally.

I think you have all fallen for his swinging baloney. :lol
Seriously though I liked That Guy. Probably has something to do with growing up in that era. The writers really tapped into alot with just that single character as well as the look of the show. The blinds on the Planet Express ship were so 80's.  :) It would be interesting to see what the demographics are of the people who enjoyed this episode versus those who did not.

Ooh! Let me be the first!  :)
That Guy is from the season 4 episode called Futurestock. That Guy, was from the 1980's (you remember the 80's don't you?) who froze himself because he had terminal boneitis. Fry met up with him in a support group for defrosties and tried to get him a job at Planet Express. He not only got him a job there but he also got him voted in as CEO of Planet Express. He quickly tried to turn the company around using plenty of 80's Reganauts policies such as flash over substance and 'growing the brand.'
If you want to see what he looks like I think Evan as well as a couple of others are using his image as avatars.

His funny disease was called "Bone-itis", which causes the bones to twist and distort themselves--leading to death. He was too busy being an 80s guy to find the cure, and the one company that came close, he bought them and shut down production for more money.

Waht they said, and let me clarify a bit: I mean that iHawk is an outstanding character, while That Guy was merely adequate.

All this That Guy talk made me go and rewatch "FutureStock" last night...and it was all worth it. I can't believe so many of you don't like That Guy...after all, he has a suit, and he knows about business and stuff and he has a tie...

Lousy hippies...always keeping the 80s businessmen down...

I remember when I first watched 'Futrestocks' I didn't like it all that much, I was pretty disappointed. But now that I've seen it a few more times I really like it. It's still got some flow problems, but overall it's a really good episode,and That Guy is great  :)

The character was alright but I would of helped if that episode did not suck so much. I'm sorry but there are just certain parts of that decade which are best left alone.
