Friday Fun today. Over the years there have been many cartoon characters modeled after animals. Their anthropomorphic qualities have introduced wildlife to children, adults, and everyone in between.
With stories and voices, the animals come to life–thanks to the animators and voice actors. Of course a real roadrunner doesn’t say “beep-beep” and a real rabbit is not nearly as cheeky as Bugs Bunny.
But sometimes fiction is just what we need.
Here are a few of the favorites in both versions: the animated and the real life. The characters for Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, and Porky Pig were less specific in species, so I took liberties.
