GRUNTY'S NEW ASSISTANT?

Alright. So Grunty is in Showdown Town. You can see her as the functions of jiggies are being explained in the developer commentary video for the showdown town walkthrough. Shes at the bottom right of the screen writing something down.

K so now check out this pic.

http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/0...34/imgs_1.html

Go to the first image, http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/objects/1...033212906.html

and you will see that Grunty wasnt writing, but doodling a pretty funny drawing of banjo losing his head haha. Also to her right you will see this small companion of hers. A purple squirrel character. New assistant?
Maybe?

Give me your thoughts.

Ah you beat me to it I was about to post the same threat here too, but I also think that purple squirrel is Grunty's new sidekick

Seeing the doodle made me laugh.

I think I saw the squirrel hopping up and down in the video. In any case, it's awfully drawn to Grunty.

What I'm more concerned about is the bear-and-bird dummy we see hitching a ride with Banjo in this picture, as well as the video. What's its function? Just a debug tool, or a significant element of the game?

For the record, according to Mandy, George said before that Piddles is a cat. Going along with this, I am assuming that Piddles is the cat hanging around Grunty. Therefore, Piddles is Gruntilda's new assistant.

...of course, this only works if George really did tell Mandy that Piddles is a cat.

Salty Joe is a cop! wow! i gotta check that out! maybe theyre gonna use all the useless characters from previous games and mkae em into cops? that depends if theres a wide variety of cops... apparently you can bribe them with notes too. apparently theres bronze, silver and gold notes too this game adds quite the few new elements

Hmm... cat huh? Maybe.. Although i havnt seen it toally up close, id imagine it would look like the skanky squirrel girls from conkers bad fur day But if Piddles is the name of the cat, whats the name of the pig cop thing? wasnt that Piddles? or maybe im remmebering wrong because of similar names perhaps...?

But yea i really think they should of came up with something like Klungos brother or something's because they need something monsterish? this seems like the cat the witch at the end of the emperor's new groove turns into. haha.

I have a gooooooooood memory.

The pig cop is Pikelet. So yes, you're remembering wrong because of similar names.

Looks like a ferret to me (or you know that pokemon)

Also if it is Grunty's new assistant, I wonder how can a hopping cat/ferret build a robot body for her.

I still wish her new assistant should be a Mini-Me.

I guess that's the idea: Klungo, the big, strong, scary ogre who used to be her assistant went off to make ssstupid videogamesss, so now all grunty has left is a cute little purple cat.
