I remembers wround when I was in middle school there was this cartoon for young children about robot animals solving dilemmas, and ever since seeing it I always thought their choices of “species” for the characters was weird.
There was a Komodo dragon, an interesting choice for a toddler targeted cartoon but it is a critter alive on this planet, compared to the T. rex which is off just for being extinct and you don’t usually see dinosaurs mixed into animal teams, but whatever no problem. The next two teammates were a unicorn and a Sasquatch, and not to be a Bigfoot atheist here but so far on this team of animals only one of them was an animal currently inhabiting the planet and the others are either dead or never existed.
The last one was a mouse, which might bother me most in just how shitty it must feel to be on a team of robot dinosaurs and giant lizards and mythical beasts and you were just a goddamn mouse.
Anyways this has been on my mind for almost a decade
