Excellent ideas, explorer and topics I often wondered about myself. I mean, Mechanikat obviously wasn't always evil (as he actually seemed pretty sweet when he was turned into a kitten [albeit a half-robotic one] at the end of "Puppy Problems"; I LOVED Snooky's crack about "This didn't turn out so badly after all."), what could have happened to him to turn him bad?
The trouble is, I can't think of anything to add to that. I DO, however, very much like how this forum is still keeping busy with so many thinking up episode ideas.
