Notes and Comments

From: Gary Rush <>
  A pun on cyborg, half man half machine of science fiction. From whence the borg of star trek the new generation.
From: <Charles Ulrich>
  Cyborg is short for "cybernetic organism". It refers to someone who is half-man, half-robot, like the Six Million Dollar Man on TV (see Fembot in a Wet T-Shirt).
From: John Henley <>
  Cyborg - roughly the same thing as an android or robot. I think it was coined by a science fiction writer but I wouldn't know who.
From: (Bill Lantz)
  I think this was to give the little roto-plooker a sense of characterization by giving him a nice name and spoofing his robot anatomy while he was at it.
From: (Cliff Heller)
  Cyborg is a word for a man/machine.
  Sy is a common Jewish American given name. Perhaps short for Simon. Remember that in Act 1 it's Mrs. Borg (who keeps her son, Sy, locked in the closet with the vacuum cleaner) who calls the police.
  This can't be the same Sy Borg. My guess is that things got shifted a little in the months that passed between Act I's release and the release of Acts II and III.

plooking too hard . . .


And cleaner than Lucille . . .
  i think "plooking too hard, plooking too hard on meeeeeeee" may be a quote of an obscure single "pushing too hard" by the seeds.
From: Charles Ulrich (
  Correct. "Pushin' Too Hard" by the Seeds, featuring Sky Saxon.
