(To answer a question I found posted here earlier: The song "Baby Love Child" from the Japanese group, Pizzicato 5, is the backing track in the montage sequence at the end of this episode, "Leela's Homeworld".)

I never followed Futurama while it was being aired on Fox - except for the occasional show here and there. While I actually did like the show, at the time I was raising 10 children and simply too tired to stay up late enough to watch it. :-) I now have all of the episodes ever aired - and my now nearly grown kids and I watch them frequently. I loved this episode - Leela's childhood had already been a backdrop to many previous episodes, so it was neat for 'her' to have some closure and of course, it then opened the door to more visits to the Mutant world under New New York City. The counter argument, from one of my kids, that it would have been cooler if her parents were aliens so we could have episodes exploring that aspect (alien worlds, etc.) doesn't work because there are so many aliens already in the show and many episodes are of the crew out in space where they come in contact with aliens quite frequently. Mutants - while alien in their own way - are earth-bound and right under the character's very feet. I think that makes it more interesting in general. I gave this episode a 5 - mostly for filling in the blanks, using "Baby Love Child" as the ending song (something they never really do - using other people's music) and the jokes were right on line with any of the other episodes that are 'backgrounders' as opposed to 'continuing adventures of' stories. ;-)

This progamme seems to have a lot of impact for a cartoon.I love Leela's Homeworld and there's another where Fry has parisites in him and Leela loves him.I love at the end when he starts to learn how to play that freaky instrument

Without any doubts this was one of the best episodes of Futurama. Emotional, rich story, superb acting as well as character development and the solution of the long awaited mystrey.

Nominated for the Best Episode of the Futurama Series.

True this episode isn't exceptionally funny, and the storyboard could have been revised better so that it wasn't so bleedin' obvious what was gonna happen. But Leela is one of my favorite characters, and I enjoyed learning more about her. I voted this a 5 because the short sequence at the end in particular is very enjoyable and it made me happy...
And is it just me or is 'Teenage Leela' (with the party hat) not the cutest thing you've ever seen?

Along with The Sting and The Why of the Fry, this episode is considered the best in Futurama. Emotional and Meaningful, while being funny at the same time. I wish we had more of this type more often.

This is one of the best FUTURAMA episode of all time. AMAZING. NOT only it is extremely funny, it is subtle and emotional. This episode is smart, and enjoyable.
