Like a lot of other people here, I found this site in a google search performed within hours of first seeing the episode and tearing up. It's the saddest thing I've ever seen on television.

The episode may have been inspired by two real-life stories about faithful dogs who waited for their dead owners to return. Goggle two dogs named Hachiko and Greyfriars Bobby.

Even if they had cloned Seymour at the end, it wouldn't have made the ending any less sad. That's because the clone wouldn't have been Seymour. Yes, the clone would have had Seymour's memories, but Seymour wouldn't have had the clone's memories. So the original Seymour would still have died lonely and sad. Making a clone wouldn't have changed that; making a clone wouldn't have retroactively caused the original Seymour to NOT die lonely and sad. Seymour was another living thing, separate and apart from a clone one thousand years later. That's why Fry's last words, "I'll always remember him, but he forgot me a long time ago" were so true and so sad. In the end cloning Seymour would have ended Fry's pain but never Seymour's.

It's a very good episode, it marks the turn that a few episodes tried to take the series in a different direction, such as the end montage of Leela's parents' secret presence throughout her life.

This is probably the most sad episode in the series. At first I hated it, them I loeved it and now I am in between. This is one of those episodes that have both positives and negatives. On the one hand it goes away from the usually humorous atmosphere that Futurama has to a more serious, sad facts of life. On the other hand these kinds of episodes are the type of episodes that really give respect to the cartoon medium. Many people sees cartoon as something to laugh at and not to be taken seriously, but when you see cartoon episodes that make you cry and bring all of this emotions it really gives more respect to cartoons as a visually work of art that deserves respect like a fancy novel that own the pulitzer price. So this episode really has good a bad things depending on how you see them. In a way I love it and in another way I hate it. To this day I still avoid watching the ending of that episode. I just saw the beginning of it today at the adult swim in Cartoon Network (9/13/06).

Futurama is a fantastic show. Wit, Satire, Inside Jokes, and of course these tales with gripping endings.

This episode was really unexpected! Futurama always had a dramatic side, what with the Fry and Leela thing, but being a dog lover, this one had me within an inch of tears. During the final scene, I forced myself to pay attention to the side jokes just so I WOULDN'T cry. It's a damn good thing that theyre bringing this series back!
