What month and year did the Flying Toasters from Berkeley System's After Dark first make their appearance?

In searching, I discovered that After Dark first showed up in the last few months of 1989.
I've discovered that they may have been the accidental invention of a pre-spaceflight Grace Slick
I've learned that the New York Times thinks it might have been 1990
based on some legal coverage of a Computerized Cartoon Penguin with a Shotgun.
But I'm still left wondering... Were the flying toasters in After Dark 1.0? If so: When did After Dark 1.0 come out? If they weren't... when?!
