The “Furry” Problem

Fair warning: there is some slight language in this post.

My name is Jonathan Ponikvar. I’m the creator of Peter & Company and an avid cartoon fan; I have been trying (successfully or not) to draw them since I first discovered the magic of crayons and markers. Like most kids in the 80’s I grew up watching a crazy amount of cartoons. My favorites were the cartoons and films of Warner Brothers, Disney, and Don Bluth, so my earliest and crappiest of doodles always revolved around those characters in some way.

As I grew older and began seriously getting into cartooning, I noticed something odd going on around me: the cartoon animal was quickly becoming an endangered species. The animal designs of the 80’s and 90’s TV cartoons were being seen less and less in modern times within the industries that they helped create.

How could this happen? Are people just no longer interested in funny talking animals?

A new fossil suggests 'all dinosaurs' may have had feathers

Funny that this would break embargo mere minutes after my response to a question about dinofuzz. Definitely strengthens the idea that dinosaurs (and maybe the common ancestor of pterosaurs and dinosaurs) were primitively fuzzy.

eeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Guys, ornithischians are cool again!

On a more serious note, the wide scales on top of the tail remind me a bit of Scleromochlus—does anyone better informed than I know if Scleromochlus is still thought to have transversely wide scutes on its lower back?

Wow, six types of integumentary structure in one animal. Imagine what more we still have to learn about dinosaur integument—heck, Kulindadromeus* is practically an “anything goes” signal for reconstructions of anything except for well-bracketed stuff like hadrosaurids and pennaraptors.  Now we just need a couple more basal taxa like coelophysids and silesaurids to be found with feathers and we can be certain.

*finally, I’m sure I’m getting the vowels right

Wow, more compelling evidence for integumentary structures in dinosaurs! We could see a variety of such fuzzes in various ornithschians and maybe also trace it back to dinosauriformes!

I believe that fuzziness is inherent in all of Archosauria. All these dinosaurs with feathers, pterosaur pycnofibers, and crocodilians apparently have the feather gene. As well, there is some evidence for the archosaurian ancestor being warm-blooded, and crocodilians simply re-evolved cold-bloodedness.

That is the best theory I’ve ever heard and it’s very plausible! Thank you

, I will now draw all virtually every archosaur with some kind of fuzz.
