Nah, not gonna happen. It's not complete, plus they'd have to get over the rights issues with Steve Purcell.

I'm well aware of all of those. None of those animals are playing out exclusively human roles. I've already mentioned the roaches and the rats as sort of an anamoly for the most part as well. Besides when they are on the moon though, roaches and rats don't play out gargantuan human roles as a yellow police cat would.

Most you listed exist for pure absurdity. Stuffed heads on the wall are hallucinogenic for the most part, and it's not like they are fulfilling human roles either way. Molemen aren't traditional talking animals, they are sapien-like oddities, just as the bigfoot, which you did not count. Also the cat with the eye patch did not talk, so he wasn't really playing out any kind of role other than a stray cat... with an eye patch. It's not like animals don't talk in Sam and Max, it just seems to depend on when it is funny, as even the squids in the On the Road comic that save the manatees from their pirate lovers give out a few one-liners. The Squids are not playing politicians, road workers, or teachers though, they are just squids... from the sea. Mack Salmon is a fish with a man's body, but he is more like a Dick Tracy bad guy. It's not as if his thugs are big walking talking fish, they are just mean looking jerk guys.

There is nothing as strong as a casual police cat in any incarnation of Sam and Max so far, and there probably won't be ever again (I'm hoping). It's not really a point you can just "differ" on, because Sam and Max does follow a set of rules, although sometimes they bend and get hazy, there are lines drawn. Sam and Max is not Rocko's Modern Life, there is a major difference.

Believe me, I'm already well informed. To me it maybe sounds like you have never read the comic which does very well on illustrating the premise?

I've never read the agreement, but I would bet LucasArts is allowed to rerelease Hit the Road whenever they want, whether Steve Purcell (or Telltale) says it's okay or not. I would guess, although I'm not positive, that they would need to have the license to make any new Sam and Max games, but that Hit the Road is exclusively their property as a finished game with or without the license.
