    I'm curious if anyone thought that Myra was too perky and annoying.

    Her perkiness was acknowledged as an aspect of her character and thus never really annoyed me.

    What did annoy me was how the writers rarely rewarded her virtue (she was the only character who liked Steve for who he really was) yet went overboard in slamming her over her paranoia of Laura, who at times really was trying to steal her man.

    Yes, it is very sad that she died of such an awful illness--especially SO young.

    Dude, we're discussing the perkiness of her personality. Not the perkiness of her...

    She's one of my favorite characters. So what if she's a little irrealistically perky at times? She genuinely cared for Steve for who he was.

    I liked Myra alot, though it is sad that she died at such a younger age. I never found anything annoying about Myra, and yes she was pretty hot.

    What? Most guys like girls with perky lips. Right?

    She was extremely perky and obnoxious and funny. A good match for Urkle

    But typical of the Urkle luck, he still wanted Laura.

    Myra was a great character. She was one of my top 5 characters. Although people didn't like her much, she was pretty great. Hot and funny. But maybe a little bit overrated. She didn't seem to grow much (as a person) during the show.
