futurama is one of those shows that lures you in by being funny and then rips your fucking heart out
If you didn’t know the hand was her father, the squid thing her mother, her parents left her at an orphanage when she was a baby but in reality were looking out for her all her life
what makes it even sadder is the reason they left her in an orphanage. they didn’t want her to know she was a mutant. they wanted her to live a normal human life so they gave her up while they live in the sewers as mutants.
All her life she believed her parents were aliens who left her on earth and are still somewhere out there in space. Really, her parents were mutants who didnt want their daughter to live the horrible life in the sewers. She was barely deformed, so she could pass off as an alien.
