I asked about this earlier after someone else mentioned that they were at some other con,
and was told that *fans* actually were responsible for the fur-suits, not Hanna-Barbera.
Someone I've talked to in the past year actually *has* a pic of these two guys, but it'll
be some brain-wracking before I can recall who. I think the Kats were utterly absent from
the SanDiego Comicon *this* year, though evidently Turner reps were fielding questions
all day long about them (that is, when they weren't laughing at the comics company who
approached them to ask about doing a Kat comic).

Yes, well, at the time everybody was telling the Tremblays "Go with Ted! He's got the resources,
he wants to *make* something out of Hanna-Barbera...(yadda, yadda, yackety-shmackety)"
Still, for all Tedco's faults, at least the series got made in the first place - too bad lobotomies
came back in fashion when the cancel order came down.

I'll try remember who has the pics.
