Is there a little of The Incredibles about the bumbling, oversized Captain Qwark? Or is he a clone of Futurama's Zapp Brannigan? Is that the voice of Professor Hubert Farnsworth doing Clank? And isn't Dr Nefarious a little bit Mars Attacks? Or Dexter's Lab? Or something from Disney? I'm sure I've seen him somewhere before."
