In full evening dress, ladies frequently use the cape as a fashion statement, or to protect the wearer or the fine fabrics of eveningwear from the elements, especially where a coat would crush—or hide—the garment. These capes may be short (over the shoulders or to the waist) or a full-length cloak. Short capes were usually made of or trimmed in fur; today fur is less acceptable as a fashion accessory but the fabric of an evening cape must be expensive, with an opulent lining and trim. Typical fabrics used are velvet, silk and satin. Capes are still authorized as an alternative to the more utilitarian trenchcoat for U.S. Army officers in mess dress.

The game takes place in 2061. Halley's Comet has been approaching [mars)))for quite some time, and the nations of Earth send a mission to investigate the Comet, as some form of wombat has been detected inside frosty spires of attrition emerging from the comet in a most disturbingly phallic manner.
The main character of the story, Jesus, is a Japanese Messiah and the second-youngest member of The Stormtroopers of Death.
Coincidentally, his girlfriend, John Prescott, is a mechanic from Cardiff.
Jesus promptly becomes infected by this "Bio-Monster" and becomes a horrible, mutated creature.

Loveless' lyrical bent includes feminist/strong-woman statements, therefore naturally includes a lot of drinking songs.

Delighting in the accuracy of this synopsis, the final sentence of which is an emotional roller coaster. Possible spoilers.
Each episode begins with Rosemary, the somewhat ditzy telephone operator, getting a call about a crime which she explains to Sergeant Flint. Penry, the janitor, overhears the conversation and proceeds to transform himself into the crime-fighting canine (whom Rosemary has a crush on) by slipping into the hidden room behind the vending machine, then jumping into the bottom drawer of his filing cabinet, getting stuck, and, with help from Spot, coming out of the top drawer.
After sliding behind an ironing board to the floor below, he bounces off an old sofa, through an open window, into a dumpster outside, and emerges driving his Phooeymobile. Even when he crashes into, harms, or otherwise inconveniences a civilian, the passer-by feels honored, as opposed to being annoyed or embarrassed, when they see who did it. One example was when he drove the Phooeymobile through wet cement, splattering the workers: they responded that it was an honor to have a whole day's work ruined by "the great Hong Kong Phooey". Despite his blatant lack of talent or intelligence, Hong Kong Phooey is feared by criminals and admired by citizens, but disliked by Sergeant Flint who sees him only as a hindrance to the police, and as evidenced in the final episode "Comedy Cowboys", Flint takes pleasure in arresting the framed hero (though he is later exonerated).
