For the start of this chapter, I am going a bit for a Troy McClure-vibe. (Though Leonard Nimoy introducing a Simpsons episode was cool too.)

Bettina "Tiny" Timmy from Timmy's ToyCo first appeared here.
Plus, there are the (rather crossover-ly) pieces of the puzzle regarding those recent scandals (mainly concerning product safety and thinly veiled threats against members of the press) and the assassination of Tiny's brother and preceding CEO.
For now, it's just important to know that the company under Tiny seeks to repair their tattered public image.

Last but not least, the image of Dr. Ytterbium chosen for that one video's thumbnail was created by Chippewa Ghost, the author of the comic in which Timmy III got assassinated. See it here in its full glory!

One of these days I owe you a couple pages showing Timmy III's final missteps.

The cross links and guest art shoutout much appreciated!

You're welcome. :-)

And Timmy III's final missteps would indeed be neat to see someday. (Whenever you find some spare time for that of course, no need to force it.)

So, Timmy III knows knew Elliot Maerc? Why am I not surprised? ;-D

Thank you for this marvelous piece!

(And stay tuned for this chapter's epilogue, it will get a bit flashback-y and crossover-ly too...)

'Man vs. horse - Epic fail!' I'll bet that one got a million hits in the first hour....

When it comes to web videos, animals and painful looking humiliating injuries always draw in the audience!

I'm getting a very shady vibe from her.

That's a quite accurate assessment.
And even though she is in fact innocent regarding the dead of her brother, I imagine that the police's homicide division had a close look on her while investigating the case, just because she seems guilty of something... :-D

Yep, keep smiling while you talk about the assassination of your brother. That's not creepy or corporate at all...

Evil toy companies are the worst kind of toy companies.

Bettina's behavior probably made her the prime suspect during a long stretch of the police investigation! (Imagine a Columbo-like investigator annoying her for months - because of something for which non other than Tona Zehm was actually responsible!)

And we will soon see a lot of rather creepy stuff concerning this toy company...

So, bad times for toy companies, even if they didn't get entangled in a dangerous game of murder threads and assassinations...

Furthermore, the maybe upcoming "trade war"! Wether it's raised tariffs on major resources like steel, or on oddly specific things, who knows how that will in one way or other eventually affect the toy industry...

The Man vs. Horse video is interesting too, though... ;-)
