Oh yes of course :-)
And I think that they were pathatic and lame in LTH, much worse than their daughter.

Yes, they were comletely pathetic in LTH, but not every character can be a comedian. They got better in TMLH, though.

Yes I said that, I just comennted  K.Gore simply introduced them, Weiner screw them and only Westbrook gave them good lines - still, those three apperences are not good to their devolepment.

Eh...fine, you win. Although "Less than Hero" is quite amusing. Did you know Leela's hair goes from black outline to self-ink when she "goes" Clobberella? Hee.
Morris and Munda remind me of every middle age NY couple....y'know, except the mutant thing.

i still believe that they were written slightly out of character for LTH in order to service the plot. Cause they were great in LH and TMLH.

And that's why I don't like "Star Trek: Voyager" and "The Hillarious Adventures of Captain Wacky and Friends". Usually when an episode sacrifice characters for plot reasons, the result is less than desirable.

But I do agree they were great in TMLH, LH was so-so.

Ive wondered if this was planned from the start or it was invented in 4ACV.

Didn't Amy make an allusion to "Turanga" being Leela's real first name in an earlier episode? Then again, what does Amy know about Leela? :shrug:

Yep. In 'The Problem with Popplers,' the announcer introduces her as Turanga Leela before her interview.
Fry: Turanga?!
Amy: That's her name, Philip.
Bender: Philip?!

She knows her full name as well as Fry's evidentally.  :D

I wish the commentary had said something on the whole first/last name thing...

You gotta remember Amy said that long before Leela ever found out she was a mutant. Leela herself probably thought Turanga was her first name until she met her parents and found out about her culture.

Yeah, but Leela could have assumed it...or looked up her names somewhere. If you spent your life with a name like...oh....Smith Jon, wouldn't you know it was surname first?

Wait, how did the orphanarium know Leela's name was Turanga Leela anyway?  I thought the note left by Munda and Morris only said "Your parents love you very much"

She also had a little nametag saying "Hello, my name is Turanga Leela".

For a name as plain and common as that yeah you could assume it, but neither of Leela's names are very common. So i really doubt she had any idea. I always figured she went by her last name cause she either liked it better (it sounds more feminine) or that's what the workers at the orphanarium called her.

As for her former "oficial status" I think we are supposed to belive BBA, where she is continually adressed as "captain Leela."

I'm almost certain that was "A Leela of Her Own". But I could be mistaken, I haven't seen "The Problem with Popplers" in a while.

The line in ALOHO is:

Announcer: "Your attention please. Now pitching for Mets: Turanga Leela." (People continued to leave the stadium) "A one eyed woman." (People turns around in curiosity.)

Morris and Munda are great parents in my opinion. Except for the Techquella(sp?) thing.

I have a question about her parents: Aren't their names and Munda Leela and Morris Leela? Because isn't Leela's last name LEELA? Not Turunga. Isn't Turunga her first name meaning that her parents names are what is metioned eairlier?

No, mutants have their surname first:

Turanga Morris

It's "Tequila."
I'd sooner drink kerosene, and if you've ever tasted straight Tequila you know why.  ;)

<SC Drags own post back on-topic>
Still, Morris was treating Leela as the responsible adult he knew her as, not the gangly adolescent the chronotons had turned her body into.  :hmpf:
In that situation, how're you supposed to treat your daughter?
I'll shut up now.
