Finally, an answer. Although Mike Swanigan in the "Toon" article spells it "Callico", he
also spells Turbokat as "Tubrokat". Mike's eaten all his proofreaders. Lance Falk says
that it is indeed "Calico" with a single "l", just like the kitty namesake - piebald or otherwise.

(Maybe in fifty-plus years Callie *will* look "piebald"...or just plain-bald...")
