The fuck? Seriously? This is an article? I don't want to live on this planet anymore. Totalnerduk (talk) 17:26, 11 July 2012 (CEST)

I was surprised as well. I do not find its content to be strikingly informant about the clothes that I did not already know. If the intend is to list what sort of outfits Farnsworth have worn over different episodes, one might consider to do that instead. --Sviptalk 17:28, 11 July 2012 (CEST)

Well, I'm not nearly non-lazy enough to both start that article AND redirect this one to it whilst messaging the staff for the deletion of this page AND populating the new one with relevant content. He wears his lab clothes, his pyjamas, his slippers, nothing, a couple of really inappropriate outfits, and various ensembles that are situation-dependent/setting-appropriate (like the scrubs) at different points throughout the show. I'm not watching the entire run of Futurama plus the movies just to determine what he's wearing and when. Aside from the time it would take, I can't find my Season 3 DVDs at the moment.

Can we please have a discussion

First of all, they are called scrubs, as totalnerduk correctly inserted. You may remove his smug remarks, but at the very least keep the accurate information. Furthermore; do we need an article for each set of clothing the Professor has worn, then why not a wardrobe article instead? --Sviptalk 22:46, 26 July 2012 (CEST)

I am a bit sick of people saying this article I wrote shouldn't exist, so forgive me if this sounds hostile. But I think it should exist. The wardrobe idea is a good one, but when we have lists, there are still articles that come from them that exist. Take Catchphrase for example; it's a list of catchphrases the characters use, but there are also articles for individual catchphrases (Bite my Shiny Metal Ass, Good News, Everyone]). My point is, if you want to make the wardrobe article, or even make it a sub-section on Farnsworth's page, go ahead, but that doesn't mean you need to delete this article.

The individual catchphrases have obtained their own articles, because there is a significant portion to be discussed besides just listing them. I am not sure that an article about Farnsworth's scrubs discusses anything more than when he wore them. Something a list article could certainly do as well. If you find a more interesting angle, then sure. But so far, I am not seeing it. --Sviptalk 10:13, 27 July 2012 (CEST)
Well, the article for all the catchphrases doesn't list their individual appearances. This article, like articles on individual catchphrases, could serve that purpose. I know it's not much, but once you've created an article, there's no good reason to delete it. It provides SOME information, if not much. For example, there's an article on He's dead, even though the article basically just lists the appearances of the catchphrase. Kif (talk) 15:51, 27 July 2012 (CEST)
