I know the Alien movies have their fans. (I will get around to watching them as Mystery Science Theater 3,000 alumni Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and kevin Murphy (as rifftrax.com) create riff tracks to play along with the movies. As scary as my life has been, I've never sought more scares from movies.) I don't want to spoil your fun, just because it's not my thing. Often I seek therapy from my cartooning, and the heads of the Geiger aliens always looked like hammer heads, to me.
As I want my cartoons to be fun for all ages, I decided that as viscious as Hammerhead was when he stepped through the space station airlock, a purring cat would mind control him and tame him in a heartbeat. Don't feel sorry for Hammerhead; he still gets to kill things visciously. Video games are light and compact, and some of them are very violent and bloody, enough to make Hammerhead's day.
