    One of the things that stands out with some of the better television cartoon shows of the 1990's was a willingness to tackle important social issues, such as racism and bigotry. In the original story, the group was the Ku Klux Klan and while the episode had to sanitize the issue, the basic message about the evils of hatred, intolerance and fanaticism are here in this episode. The underground, anti-technology organization hates technology -- especially robots like Watson -- on the grounds that they are "inferior" to humans and are also "unnatural". Language that is all too familiar to anyone who has even been the target of intolerant fanaticism, unfair discrimination or harassment.moreless
