Where did the Wombies come from?
Long, long ago (almost four people-years), in a far-off land (Australia), the first generation of Wombies were unleashed upon the earth by the demented Dr. Franco.
Dr. Franco: "Actually, I'm just misunderstood."
Winky Question 6
Why did Dr. Franco create the Wombies?
Following a nasty childhood encounter with a cantankerous Chihuahua, Dr. Franco (thereafter called Stumpy), dedicated his life to creating the world's most sophisticated and even-tempered house pet.
After sixty years of failure (and the scars to prove it), Dr. Franco at last achieved his lifelong goal: he produced the very first genetically-engineered wombat. Officially known as Wombie #WX-267, he later came to be known as Binky, the smartest Wombie of all.
Winky Question 7
Just how smart is Binky?
Extensively tested and monitored as he matured, Binky was found to be far more gifted than Dr. Franco had dreamed possible. It was clearly evident that Binky could no longer be classified as a mere pet. Binky was, in fact, Dr. Franco's intellectual superior. And, at six months of age, Binky hadn't yet achieved even half his potential.
