Actually, I think poor Tygra was the most dismissed TC, not only by writers, but also by the evil characters. Besides SJ's lines, there was also: Monkian in "Fireballs from Plun-Darr" by stating "They sent that Tygra to spy on us and he failed misreably" (or something like that). Mogor who said "If this is the best a TC can do, then he's no rival for Mongor" (or something like that) when he defeated Tygra. One could argue those lines would have been said that about whatever TC the baddies trapped, but it happened to be Tygra... This brought back to my mind the whole "designated victim" thing about Tygra. It really seemed TCs would have saved themselves a lot of trouble (and Tygra a lot of embarassment) if they just, every morning after breakfast, tied Tygra to his Council Room chair and leave him there for the day. You know, they could tell him something like "Don't get mad at us, Tygra, it's nothing personal. We're doing this for you. You know you'd end like this anytime soon if you get outside anyway, only this way you'll be safe and we get some rest instead of going out to rescue you. We'll come for you for lunch!" LOL.
