Isn't that a good thing? A lot of Futurama fans (including myself) rank that episode very highly because it's so emotionally affecting. It's hard enough for a live-action show to make you care about its characters (who are on-screen portrayed by real people), but for a cartoon to do it is an absolute achievement. Let's not forget that we never even heard of Seymour before the episode (Fry's brother Yancy was also introduced in the similarly good "The Luck of the Fryrish"), so we were sad at the death of a character we only knew even existed 22 minutes earlier. The episode is a testament to how good Futurama could be and why it has such a devoted fanbase (one so devoted they brought it back from the dead, twice).

Man, screw that! That movie nearly ruined the greatness of two of the series's best episodes. It only doesn't ruin them because, like Dr. Boogie, I don't plan on ever rewatching it, so I choose to take the original events over those of BBS.

I'm a pretty big fan of the show, and if there is one thing that fans do, it's take what they are fans for "too seriously". I don't see a difference between me and the Star Wars fan who denies the existence of the prequels (which is actually also me).

It's okay. Not everyone is going to be affected the same way.

I can't say any specific reason why people became attached to Seymour (since I assume you mean the created character over an actual dog). It might be because they owned a dog in real life. It might be because they were empathic towards the Seymoar's feelings (the episode made it clear that he missed Fry very much). It might be because they felt sorry for Fry (since it's clear that he missed Seymour very much). I don't know. You ask any different person who saw that episode and was affected by it, and they all might have different reasons.

Maybe it's a little hard for you to understand how someone could care for a cartoon dog. I'd say that's one of the great things of humanity. Humans have the ability to imagine. So for the 22 minutes they saw the episode, the people who were affected by it felt sad for Fry and his dog, since for the duration of the episode, they saw them as real individuals with real feelings, rather than as the product of 9 months of writing, voice-acting, animation, ect.. That's about all I could say to answer you inquiry.

You have to remember Vare lives in Mexico. Dogs are little more than rats there.

Really? I guess that's understandable. I'd probably have a hard time feeling bad for a chicken.

Edit: Damn! You guys post quick. I was responding to Dimnos's "Dogs are rats in Mexico" thing.

As for darkvare, so you owned 6 dogs? Did you ever see them as anything other than an animal? I mean, did you ever care that it was cold as hell outside and let the dog in?

Alright. I'm just going to try to write down why people care about dogs.

Dogs have throughout history and many cultures have served as protectors and friends to people. From early on, people trained dogs to be alarm systems, fellow hunters, and even let the kids play with them. Few other animal (types) have served as useful and diverse a purpose to humans than dogs (except livestock, but it's hard to prescribe a unique importance to something we know we're going to eat (thus my earlier comment about not caring about chickens)). Of course, in the modern world, dogs have lost their importance. We no longer need them to serve as an alarm or to join in the daily hunt, thus their only left over purpose is as friends (usually to kids, though there are certainly plenty of adults with pet dogs). In some areas this has left dogs to be seen as rats (is Dimnos right about the "dogs are rats in Mexico" thing? (also, certain East Asian countries (I won't name names) famously eat them))), simply because they don't hold the same purpose they used to. Still, the amount of care they still receive in many countries (in America, it's a sort-of cliche to mention that you would garner more sympathy from a movie audience if you showed a dog limping across a battlefield over a human doing so) certainly speaks to how ingrained their prior importance still is.

What does this have to do with Fry's dog? To imply that one of the reasons people care so much about that episode (or at least find it sad) is because (in America at least) how much dogs still matter (again, try to remember that Futurama is an American show, and thus primarily made for an American audience). People cared about that little dog because people (Americans anyway (and generally)) care about dogs (also all the other reasons I outlined in my third post).

I don't really have much more to add than that.

Just for the record. I said they were "little more than rats". Read: have more meat & produce more milk than rats. Just to clear that up.
