All the characters in Slick and Pals were pretty well defined. Slick was cool and confident. Trembley was nervous. Jake was always annoyed at his pets. However, I never did much with Eek the Mouse. At one point in the comic strip, I decided to make him chew things alot (kinda how real mice chew things) and I renamed him Chopper.
I did this strip in 1986. In 1992, the Saturday morning cartoon, Eek the Cat, debuted. I remember getting mad because I felt ripped off, but that feeling wore off because Eek the Cat was an awesome show and I watched it all the time.
