Re: *fires back!*

Oh YIKES. I'd seen some of the earlier Disney costumes but not those early fabric ones. My word.

That... tongue...

Hypnotizingly disturbing?

What/why is that?

Can it be that you have not heard of Le Cochon Danseur before? Let me enlighten you!

Oh yeah? I'll see you your odd dancing pig video and raise you one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFjVTLGIqwo ;)

Seriously, had not heard of Le Cochon Danseur! Glad you shared that (though I maintain the tongue is still disturbing) since it's rare to find these snippets of fursuits in history. A technically advanced costume for the time. :)

I think we've both won... or lost, depending on your opinion of burlesque pigs. :)

Between the eyes and the cheekbones...yeeeesh. Very human in all the wrong ways.

I'm reminded immediately of this fine example of taxidermy; there, at least, the excuse is perhaps that the individual had never actually seen a lion.

Ah, yes, I've seen that one and it is an interesting historical curiosity.... The eyes, though. Wow.

No wonder my generation of TV watchers is so warped, right? To say nothing of fashion sense . . .
