1. I like the EEKADO mention. I'm guessing
1 1/2. Though I think it either means A. He's part of the computer now or B. The reboot wasn't fully effective, so the Energy Enhancer thing destroyed all the characters we aren't going to use for it, including EEKADO.
2. Apparently, Beta was suddenly painted. Then again, that's probably why Dr. Tone was telling the story: To make it to where the painting of Beta wasn't boring for the now-not-grey robot.
3. I wasn't going to have a third thing here, but I just realized. THIS version of Beta was JUST created not too long ago. How does he already know who Cut Man is?
