So I’m done with the countdown of consumer products that have blown up in the past two decades. What can I replace my SYW intro space with now? How about a little tribute to my shelf critters you all know and (hack, cough) love! I could certainly keep that series going for a long time. I may as well start with the face of the franchise… and what a face it is.
Fuzzywig the raccoon has been the star of Shelf Critter Theatre since it began five years ago. His laid back, stoner personality quickly took shape because…. well, just look at him!
He was named after the first role he played on The Nest as Fezziwig from my (pre-SCT) pony themed send-up of A Christmas Carol. Fuzzy came to the Shelf via an impulse purchase I made at The Bass pro Shop outside of Kansas City in 2014. In every fictional world I’ve ever created, one of the characters gets imbued with my heavily sarcastic and cynical view of the world, and Fuzzy certainly picked up those traits.
A Share Your World question themed around Fuzzywig (Melanie may feel free to steal these from me!):
When you just need to forget the world for a few hours, what helps you get away from it all?
Well, we certainly know what Fuzzy would pick. Of course, you probably have your own “Good Stuff.” And speaking of good stuff, let’s get on with those real SYW questions from this week, brought to us as always by Melanie…
What would be much better if you could just change the color of it?
Blood! As much as it may shock those who see all of the gratuitous cartoon violence I come up with on this blog, I am one of those very squeamish people around blood, or realistic Hollywood blood. When they lanced my infection in the hospital and rivers of bloody pus oozed out everywhere, I had my head firmly covered by a pillowcase.
And maybe it’s the red color of blood that’s off-putting? Perhaps if we bled blue or purple or pink or something like that, it wouldn’t bother me so much.
Do You Think Cats Have Any Regrets?
I should probably ask a cat this question….
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
No, and my ADHD mind would quickly wander on to something else if I tried.
Is there a supreme power?
Yes, but you’ll have to pay more for the extra toppings…
Please feel free to share some gratitude with everyone!
Is this where I always post an old ESN comic?
So I randomly came upon my 200th comic… and it even has the Supreme theme of the last question!
