    Not even the 1986-87 Lorimar-Telepictures prints of that iconic artwork included Kit.

    I've always wondered why. It is rather curious why Kit is absent. I don't think that her character had not been conceived when that poster was commissioned. It's very likely that Kit and Kat were conceived together, so why only one of the twins was featured? :confused

    I know that Kit was not one of the originally conceived characters. Kat was the only child character originally and I believe it was Jules who prompted that here was a need for another female character. It was at that point Kit came along and they decided to make the Wily's twins. I believe this all happened very early in the process but I guess it was possible that this classic image was already in the works.

    The link didn't work for me, but that is interesting. Perhaps since it isn't until 87 she was added in a 2.0 version?

    Oh I didn't know that. I always thought that the two twins were conceived together. Thanks for that interesting bit of info, adssse! It certainly explains Kit's absence from the Classic poster.

    Ya, I will have to try and remember where I read it but I found it very interesting myself.

    It's evident in the original show pitch, when all the character names are different (Jagu-R, Lion-L, Panth-R, Cheet-A, Tige-R, and Wiley-Kt) and the Eye of Thundera is called the Eye of Xanth!

    I thought I heard Aburn call 2011 Lion-O "Lion-L" in an episode of the reboot show.

    Yes, you are right. They threw many nice nods to the classic series in the new cartoon!
