The Brown Hornet is the titular character of a show about an African-American superhero (a parody of the Green Hornet), whose cartoons were watched regularly by the gang. The Brown Hornet Show is about a superhero who travels in a spaceship, fighting evil whenever they threaten the universe. He is accompanied by his sidekick Stinger, and Tweeter Beele, a robot assistant.
During initial screenings The Brown Hornet was deemed too sexualized for a general audience, and thus given a t-shirt and pants. His iconic gloves remained though.
