The fourth episode was the first originally produced for College Sports Television (CSTV). They wanted a cartoon that focused on college students playing sports. It seemed a little generic to do a basketball or football story, so instead we picked an even more generic sport and went with bowling. Actually, we spent a great deal of time in college bowling, so it seemed like a natural fit.
The eventual version that CSTV aired was radically different. It cut significant parts of the episode, including any scenes with Mr. Mittens. The resulting piece was kind of a mess. This full version includes Mr. Mittens and one incredibly dated reference to the Chicago Cubs’ postseason failures.
- This episode was produced exclusively for College Sports Television (CSTV).
- Mr. Rat is quite the entrepreneur; he owns the liquor store in town and the bowling alley.
- The Chicago baseball fan is, of course, a reference to the 2003 post-season of the Chicago Cubs and Steve Bartman.
