Fun fact: when Nebraska Governor Ben Nelson appeared on Candid Camera, he told unsuspecting Lincolnites that he planned to change Nebraska’s name to either Zenmar or Quentron, and asked them to pick one during the sketch.

Toad is actually a character my younger brother created a while ago. He’s sort of a mad scientist who tries to take over the world with giant robots and bad TV shows. I created Captain Grox back around 1990 as a generic bad robot from space. Zenmar is based on Xaxxa, a character I played on a long-defunct MUSH whose name I’ve forgotten, and Quentron is based on an alien creature I created in fifth grade.
