Actually, now that I've watched season 1 again, Kahboom's face IS white on his right & red on the left, as it is in season 2. However, the opening credits for S1 and the PM figures (including my life-size) are the opposite.

Interesting! And the logo on his chest has not changed, so its not just a horizontal flip of the images.
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

I think it's very likely somewhere in the process the face texture got flipped by mistake. happens often in 3D facial rig systems that are by default symmetric. It will only show in exceptions like this facial texture, and it usually only becomes obvious too late in the process to go back and fix it quite a few steps back in the animation pipeline :-)

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:
