Though I love and respect his character, Kowalski is not hard for me to figure out. I know what he'll do when given the scenario at hand in the episode and how he'll react. Though he does deliever the occasional surprise, he isn't complexed in the sense of being complicated. His scientific mind is definately unfathomable, when it comes to thinking about how rational he is and yet how silly he acts sometimes. It's a good combination and carries Kowalski's personality. I would like a few more twist though. It would pack more of a punch with Kowalski and give more FanFiction material for him.
As far as technology has gotten Kowalski, he hinges on it and is going to crash and burn that way, which we've seen by some of his reactions in episodes such as; "Jiggles". But there is a part of Kowalski that wants to break away from math and science and live a Rico style life of freedom, as we see in the beginning of; "The Falcon and the Snow Job". This makes for a great addition to the intelects like us that watch the show, and also gives the kids something to laugh at. Though they say; "Don't think it to death." "Penguins of Madagascar" gives us something to laugh at and something to comphrend, such as Kowalski's imagination.
Though it is shown only on rare occassions, it does make a good entrance and exit when it does. It also gives a lot to write and think about when it comes to intellects, while keeping a perfect balance of humor that most children and adults can enjoy. As always, "Dreamworks" throws in a little sexual humor every now and then and Kowalski was a prime for it when it came to the "Blowhole's Revenge" episode. Yes I do know what the expression means but the way it is put, it can have a double meaning: "Fish can't sleep... and you'd think a dolphin would know that unless he means... Ugh!" Dreamworks has shown us in the past that they aren't afraid to give such a double meaning, so they keep a balance for the more mature audiences. It worked espically well with Kowalski saying it as well.
Kowalski's love of his job does not bury his free spirit but it takes control most of the time. To take in what Kowalski knows, and still keep a sense of humor, is definately hard work. The material may thin in the future and cause the show to lose luster with Kowalski, hopefully not soon.
