Poor Max! But if it makes him feel any better, he's not the only one who never wears pants.
There's also a grey thief raccoon who wears a blue sweater and boots but no pants. And then you have a speedy blue hedgehog who wears nothing but red sneakers.
P. S. We both know a certain bobcat who refuses to wear any trousers.
I don't blame Max for being upset. I prefer his original G-rated naked look ala Bugs Bunny. Perhaps Max can ditch the pants like Bonkers Bobcat.
On a related note: I have the Sam and Max Complete series on DVD. The Geek is my favorite. She's a cute tomboy with a genius level IQ.
