No votes yet

Quentin 'Cubist' Long would like to take this opportunity to let furdom-at-large know that Anthro needs art!

Check out the still-under-construction Anthro prototype site for further details, including some rough-draft-type ideas for what sort of art Anthro is looking for.

Furryville collectibles

Your rating: None

If you haven't nosed around the toy section at your local Target, you may want to! Mattel has put out a line of rather detailed, roughtly 3-inch-high poseable plush figures entitled (I kid you not) "Furryville." While not yet up on the Target website, they were apparently featured in this year's Toyfair.

This in and of itself is no big deal, as there have been anthropomorphic figures aimed at children for a long time (Calico Critters & the Sylvanian series); but this series in particular has a broad range of species...

Renart the Fox

Your rating: None

From Toonzone.Net: The opening film at SICAF this year was a CGI effort based on the seminal French folk tale that, I am told, inspired the story of Robin Hood. It's called "Renart the Fox," directed by Luxembourger (yes, that is a word) Thierry Schiel. Renart spends him time engaging in mischief on those who deserve it: an adulterous deer, thieving porcupines, greedy pigs, but most of all against Ysengrin the wolf, the power-hungry captain of the guard in the animal kingdom, and his master, the Royal Councillor, a donkey with his eyes on the throne. Both the Councillor and Ysingrin are constantly frustrated by the somewhat ineffectual King Noble and the rational Queen lions, who insist that Renart be given a chance to defend himself for his crimes.

When the Councillor sends Ysengrin on a quest to retrieve a Sacred Scroll with the recipe for immortality on it from the Cave of Maledictions (curses), it's only natural that in the regular course of freezing Ysingrin's tail in a lake, the scroll accidentally falls into Renart's hands, and he just as accidentally hears there's treasure at the end (though he doesn't know what). Thus begins our dashing thief's quest.

Tiger on the rampage in NYC.. well.. not quite.

Your rating: None

An untamed jungle cat - albeit a soft and cuddly one - scared the stuffing out of some suburban commuters passing through the Bronx yesterday, prompting cops and city officials to try and catch the tiger by the tail.

It wasn't too hard.

"The police wanted to know where the tiger was," said German Ortiz, 34, the super of 1194 Brook Ave. "I told them, 'It's mine, but don't worry, it's not real.'"
