Biker Makeover





Here are some more humble beginnings for characters who later became staples of the series. The space bikers (or "Orion's Angels" as the series pitch bible refers to them) Letta, Lenny, Olga, Sludge and Tammy, found their personalities very fast, but their designs were a little clunky in "Return of the Raggedy Android".In "Victim of Fashion" we finally had the chance to give them the tune-up they deserved. The trick was not just streamlining them, but choosing one aspect of each to emphasize (Olga for instance didn't look right with a big head and a big belly, so she just became a giant head). This is of course with one exception. Tammy, we've always loved you just the way you are!

Fascinating!

Now they look more bad, except for Lenny (poor little guy)...
Good going for Tammy. She's very good-looking (sexy girl) ;)

Awesome! I really like the Orion's Angels. And how they've become "more important" than some of the other villains Jenny's been having to deal with in the course of the series.

Which raises a question:
Will they also return in some of the third season's episodes? I certainly hope so.

As a fan answer to 'Ace,' I certainly hope and think so! There was a bg posted a week or so ago that was titled 'Biker Planet.'
I love Orion's Angels, and find it funny that you ALSO have a character named Orion!

Yes, the space bikers will return! Though there is a bit of time before it will happen. Be patient, in the last couple episodes of the series they have two very important appearances.

I truly enjoyed seing how the "Biker gang" was developed and glad to see that it was an equal opportunity outfit. Letta sounded like a natural leader from the Bronx and Olga was a "Fish out of water". Sludge was just ---- Sludge.

Tammy was so cute, I can see why Janice wanted to do her voice.

I see that the third season IS on the schedule, at least for sometime this year.

YEAH, verily, Yeah!
