Contributors to this page: Nick Williams (provided the original Abelard image, no longer on page);
Don C. has reminded me that " I remember he had a little robot sidekick, who he'd torment endlessly. He lost the robot some time around the point where he'd tried staging a big comeback for the ancient gods." Thanks Don. The robot in question was Edwin, who no matter what went wrong, would always think the best of Abelard.

Abelard Snazz should not be confused with:


Edwin was Abelard's servant robot, a fawning individual who constantly sang his master's praises.
