"WHAT we have here is - 'failure to communicate'..."

FAQ is short for "Frequently Asked Questions", and it appears the first question is
likely to be "What is a FAQ?". Okay. The FAQ will contain answers to questions
about the SwatKats that every fan is likely to ask, and I plan on using references in this

1) Information obtained through the episodes themselves - always available.
2) Information obtained through Hanna-Barbera via official channels where available.
3) Information obtained through Kats crew members, current or ex-, where available.
4) Gossip and rumour with the appropriate "dunno if this is reality, but it's the best we
     could do" disclaimer. All too frequently available.
5) Consensus among current members of this list in the total absence of any of the above.

So, in other words, Hanna-Barbera's in-house "Style Guide" writes "Calico" as exactly that -
one little-old lonely "l" - not a happily married couple. The FAQ will reflect that, being that
the information comes from "2" (see, above "5"...lower number wins!). Of course, you can
do whatever you please in fanfic, postings, grafitti, cattle mutilations...whatever, but fans
in the wider viewership with access to the FAQ are going to want as many *facts* as we
can provide.

Remember the Bible? (Big book...lots of death...the Butler did it) Well, the H-B "Style Guide"
that I've got is exactly that...the Alpha and the Omega. There is no arguing with it. Lightning
bolts rain down from Mount Olympus for less...C-A-L-I-C-O cat!

(Take notes, there'll be a test...)

"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
 antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters,
 through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in
 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
