I really like it. Yeah, you could have Hackle be a parallel of any of the V2
scientists, er...'imported', to the 'States after the War, and he could be just
as integral to MASA as Von Braun and cronies were to NASA. Good idea.
You wouldn't need to do anything with the accent either. 'Course, we'd
have to come up with a suitable kat-synonym for "Peenumunde".

I don't get TCN, but from friends who do, I get the impression that there
aren't really too many programs that could be dubbed "stars" in their lineup.
There's a couple of things in development for TCN at the moment (in
addition to "Dexter's Lab" and "The New Adventures of Jonny Quest"),
but does anyone else find it strange that TCN has no problem identifying
a winner where certain other arms of Tedco wouldn't be able to if it
bit them on the ass? Eh, go fig (or look forward to another rehash of
'The Jetsons' - whichever comes first).

I think I already mentioned this, but a casual acquaintance on rec.arts.animation
(nobody associated with the show, though), tells me that "one of my friends
is now answering fan mail at TCN, and he tells me that they get a *ton* of
kats-related e-mail there. He also tells me that all outgoing mail is read first."

"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"
