( Don't worry it's just a one page deal what you see here. )

This for period set has some explanation. I do realize the main good guys are all having their childhood stories put within a certain age range (7-8), I guess that's just because I want to show an innocent impressionable age for them but not have them too little. Penny & Brain don't fall into the same decade as the rest because she was born at the tail end of the 90's. John and Alan are separated by only a few years. But why I bring this up now on ages is due to plans being changed over year of presentation. Now Alan was meant to have his story at this time, not Jake who is older than any of them. He was born in 1972. Originally I wanted to write his origin story taking place in '90 but scrapped that thought when to my own notes I got my memory refreshed in realizing he'd be 18 by then and I still wanted him not at considered adult age. That's why the date rolled back to being '89. JOY was folding under as the Cold War was coming to an end. 1991 is when it ceased to be, so when I made reference to the Berlin Wall falling, that's part of how I tried to define when the story was taking place. Now I did consider because of the year change with Jake, changing this for Alan. I just decided 'what the hell' and kept Alan's story unchanged. Also for other notes to this universe, this is roughly the same time Doctor Claw enters employment with Scolex Enterprises, before he later takes it over and renames it to MAD.

A further note here, Katy Correct was meant at first to be the sole represent of Agent Heather. Adding in a represent of the original Corporal Capeman also felt fitting to the idea of showing the not present sidekick character. For bad humor sake, the idea struck me this presentation of showing these odd counterparts would be choice to put in this section. A sidekick watching a cartoon featuring altered takes on a missing one & who he's more like in canon. Agent Heather I decided to formally add in when it dawned on me it would not feel right to write Gadget Boy minus Heather.

The reason the year note is not on this page is this is meant to be an old TV program in rerun. ... I actually thought it out so far as a history to the made up show. This fiction within fiction is supposed to be an educational cartoon series that ran from '71-'82. Picture if Wilkins Wontkins Commercials had plots longer then a few seconds a piece and imparted knowledge, that's how I view this invented cartoon.

Reminds me of my first time at a ranch, and first time that I rode a horse! =D

Nah, I had help from ranch's owner. I was a bit scared at first, just had to be brave for once in my life. ;)
