I forgot to mention how I know this. If you check the credits, you'll see Davis' name there
as nominal producer of the thing, but a completely unfamiliar "writer". Secondly, there's
a picture file on the site called "Dockat.gif" which is a Hanna-Barbera model sheet from
"Mutation City" starring a kat-caricature of our list's real-life model for the character - "Dr. Samuel
Conway". On this sheet, you'll notice that the production number is actually "94-02" or some
such, which denotes the fact that the sheet is part of the second episode pack, despite
"Mutation"'s airing in the first second season slot. One of the production people (who shall
remain unnamed to protect the innocent) told me that it was shelved and almost run as
an afterthought on TBS late in the run.
