        The thing is, the times have changed and the feminism of cartoons
have generally caused the introduction of politically correct clothes on
cartoon characters. Nobody thought it would be offensive to draw a nude
Sally which wears just boots in the original esposides in the first season
run. I suppose someone whined and the people immediately revamped Sally's
image. Who knows, I could ask the people who work behind the scenes at
DIC, as I have access to the Sonic Art Team myself.

        In a issue of Sonic the Hedgehog comic book, the editor replied to
a similar question asked by Jeff and the others -- the answer from the
editor was that Sally is a fox, if I remember correctly. But I can
backtrack and check on that fact.

        According to the editor of Sonic The Hedgehog comic books, Tails
got his second tail from Antione which explains why Antione has no tail.
And Tails family was captured by Robotnik during an raid. Sally was hence
assigned to care for Tails and become Tails' aunt. This is an theory...
anybody come up with a better theory for Tails' existance with Sally.

40 megs of Artwork from the cartoon and more will be soon made available
on the ftp site as soon as I have access to Macs again.
I am currently in the process of adding more artwork to the archives, to
bring my archives up to date. Any pictures of the sort would be
appreciated, as I am collecting pictures for the ftp site as well as for
archiving purposes.
