     The only video games to my knowledge are the Hudson Soft Super NES game
and a hand held game seen at Kay-Bee that I've only heard about here. I
don't think Hudson would mind since the game hasn't, sadly, set any records
in sales for the company. But, Turner probably would since he just wants to
get his hands around the Kats' and our throats and strangle the fans with
his silly actions!

     Well, not necessarily two characters at once, but how about an idea I
had while playing the SNES game. There, tou can choose to enter a stage as
T-Bone or Razor, but you must finish the stage or die to change Kats. I
think being able to switch between them in a stage to complete that stage's
particular traps would be nice. In the SNES game, there are parts that only
one of the particular Kats can reach ( Razor with a jet-pack and T-Bone with
a bazooka ). This I think would add a strategy element to the game.

     Well, you've probably written more than I have lurking about this
listserv. :> But then, I rarely speak unless spoken to anyway...
