can someone help me figuring out this: How does Gyro and Helper  

In stories where Helper has something to say to Gyro (or others), what  
does he do? Does he write, mime ... does he just think of what is correct,  
use a little body language and Gyro amazingly as if using telepathy  
understands him ("Bzzt! Bzzt!" "Oh, I didn't think of that. Yes, you're  
right, I should replace those screws with bigger ones")? Or is the normal  
situation that Gyro doesn't understand what Helper's trying to say at all?

I guess he was made in a time era when story writers "around the world",  
uhm, I mean in USA, didn't really care about what the Italians did. But  
that doesn't explain why Italian publishers didn't make more  
Gatto-stories, so ... perhaps we should still look forward to new stories?
