To sum it up, while I would be really offended by Tygra's attitude if it was real life, this is still just a cartoon show, and I understand that this is meant to be one element of his character that will likely change in the future. Racism is not a good thing, but it works for the story here and is a genuinely believable flaw for Tygra to have. If Tygra was actively beating up other races for no good reason, then
he'd be crossing the Moral Event Horizon
In other news, here are the episode synopses for next month:

, and Snarf track down a thief in Dog City.

So, I guess we'll be seeing Tookit again. Whoopdy doo
. But it looks like we do have a connection between the mountain and the sword. Recipe for Disaster sounds like it's going to be filler to me, but I guess we'll see.
