Annoyed Zool ad/ Zool PSP Survey

'ello, I'm looking for a ad when Gremlin got annoyed when people kept thinking Zool was supposed to be an ant and I've heard they they releases a cartoon image of Zool holding a cartoon 6 legged ant in his hand in an old Amiga magazine,

Can somebody please show me this image ?
I'm a huge zool fan and I can't find it any ware !

Oh and let the guys making the Zool PSP game know
which level you most closely associate with the original Zool game
and what you like to see in the new game by taking this short survey !


EDIT: For those that are wondering, Zool is NOT an ant, believe it or not, he is a GREMLIN (my original 1992 Amiga early box art & CD32 manual says so, )

You can see it by his green arms, hands , legs and ears
But I have no idea if this is a running joke that was originaly planned with the series as it is qouted in Cool Zool (the book)

That sounds more like Colin the dog in Pushover with the Quavers add at the start of the game, but I expect someone will know the one you mention

He's some sort of super-fast and agile alien life form.

Ants don't have wings.

Actually, some ants do have wings. But yeah, IIRC he was described as some kind of "alien ant" in most of the reviews.

I always thought he was a liquorice candy who had come to life.
