Once again I'm opening the floodgates of your brain bones to wax wise about things we've seen on screens. But the topic is both titles, I just had to lead with "Cartoon Animals" because it sounds cool.
We here at Octocorp are accepting live-action animals, puppets animals, people-in-costume animals, whatever. (Just as long as they come from something made up, because real life puppets freak me out.)
And don't forget books! Our animal friends have been on our minds since we could bust out cave paintings. Heck, go all the way back to the Trojan Horse if you like, although I'll remind you that horse wasn't real, as it was made of wood and guys.
Of course it took the twentieth century's advent of cutting edge technology to really expose the deep, primal connections between the human psyche and our fuzzy, feathery, scaley or exoskeleton-y friends. You can see why I lead from there.
If it moves and it ain't wearing orange, shoot it. With poetry bullets.
Gimme some 'kus, foos!
