This is the original short that was placed with "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy", Max Atoms' much-more popular short.
Hector Con Carne was a millionaire terrorist with a mind for world domination... that is, before his body was destroyed in an attempt on his life. Now, all that has survived is his brain and stomach, but that hasn't slowed him down one bit.
Employing his scientist Dr. Ghastly, his two remaining organs are placed in
special containments and attached to a circus bear named Bosko (exactly why
Ghastly chose the bear is beyond me, and they have yet to really explain on the series).
During this pilot, Hector has threatened the UN with a doomsday device, but
when they seem a team of "crack commandoes" in return, Hector ends up with
his team beaten and a few new bruises on his brain surface (whatever it's
called). Fed up with being on Bosko, who just ate honey during the attack,
Hector fires him and has Ghastly make him a new robot body.
With his new robot body, the commandoes are no match for Hector, who beats
them single-handedly. Unfortunately, Hector goes to far and starts to fall off a cliff. With his body too heavy to pull up, it looks like it's the end of Hector Con Carne, but who's this coming out of the dust, riding on a unicycle to save
Hector? Why, it's... ehh, you get the idea.
Though the series is pretty good, Evil Con Carne is no match for Grim
Adventures, which is probably why it was dropped for full-time Grim episodes. Part of me wonders if Cartoon Network got uneasy about the whole "terrorist"
thing with 9/11 and US Security and all. Still, the pilot is pretty good. Enjoy.
