When I first say an episode with Hackle, it happened to be one with
no Razor/Hackle
or Jake/Hackle dialogue, so I assumed they were actually father/son.
It wasn't
until I say "The Metallikats's" ending scene in the salvage yard when
I realized that
was indeed not the case. Still, I like the idea anyway.

Picture Jake with a gray beard. I really works. I drew him that way
and it was
quite an image.

That' OK. It had an OK plot with some great character developments. I
care for the animation (and neither did Davis Doi). Everyone's
entitled to their
own opinion.

Yup. That's exactly how I saw it.
