    Monday Morning Quarterbacking, I think they wanted to give her a smooth transition into the show. And a smaller 3 episodes out of 26 seemed like a way for the character to not come on too strong and be imposed. Of course, the next year, she was in virtually every episode, be it songs, skits, or the closing sponsers. It didn't really seem that strong, and that imposed... but the way the marketting and publicity departments are handelling the character speaks different.

    I mean, l like Abby as a character, but this much merchandising this soon is a bit OTT for me. The other female characters have endured because they are not stereotypes.From a marketing perspective, Abby is a good idea, but i would give it a few years first. Not that i advocate a character as a revenue raiser, but she is a very good way to get income for the workshop, seeing as they are a non profit organisination.
