[Updated 8/25/15:] Cute Overload likes to feature Cute in all shapes, sizes (Look! A kitten!) and types. But as you know, we have our favorites. When you see ’em….ya Squee ’em. Without further delay, we present The C.O. Hall Of Fame. They’re not in any special order- they’re listed as we think of ’em.
We missing any? Let us know!
Patrick The Wombat
Patrick just celebrated his 30th birthday and is showing no signs of slowing down! Welcome to the C.O. Hall of Fame, Patrick!
I don’t think we need to go into too much detail as to why Norbert is our newest member of the C.O. Hall of Fame. Gadzooks–look at these videos/photos. This is more than the mind can comprehend. You know, like “How big is the galaxy.” Like that.
Fufu bringin’ the Maximum Redonk in photos by The Furrtographer!
The Scootin’ Bebeh Trunkster
This is the video that gave him his name. The term “classic” is perhaps overused- but it’s perfect in this case. Go, Trunkster, go!!
The Entire Country of Japan
Yes, the entire country is in. Every. Single. Person. As of last check (2013,) that’s 127.34 million people. Japan occupies a unique spot within the C.O. Culture, since they consistently
kick our ass top everyone else when it comes to unconventional Cute. Look no further than this tag: The Big J. Examples? Many, we have.
• Puri-Ketsu. You’ll just have to click the link.
• Mutant Parrot Bananas. We could not even begin to make this up.
• Welcome to Disapproval Island, Mr. Bond.
• Hello Kitty Halloween donuts. Awesome.
• Disney character USB Butts.. Really.
• Pokemon Cars.
• Train Stations with Kitteh Station Masters. (RIP Tama, shown above.) 😦
• Ninja Hamster Houses. Say that one out loud- sounds redonk.
Magilla Glub Glub, Lady Bubbles, & Mickey
Kigali Boston Kitteh AKA Magilla Glub Glub came blasting into the C.O. Collective Consciousness in the fall of 2012. Glubs was soon joined by Lady Bubbles, and they now have a new pal, Mickey. [*Note: Glubs and new pal Mickey are now in Boston..Bubbles soon to join them. -Ed.]
Without question the most popular Internet Cat on the…um, Internet. And we can bet Tardar Sauce (real name) doesn’t care one bit. (In truth, she is one of these teeniest, cuddliest, and softest cats you will ever meet. Just don’t let her know that. Got to meet and pet her at a private media thing at Macy’s S.F. last November- truly a rock star moment. Not kidding. Photos by The Furrtographer, who was there with me. -B.)
Lil’ Bub has overcome some physical challenges to become a truly beloved member of the Net Catosphere. (Is that a word?) GOOD JOB, BUB!
Maru: The Circle. His Royal Girthness. Mugumogu’s Meal Ticket. He’s The Man, and he knows it. This article says Maru’s videos have been viewed over 200 million times. A lot of clicks, friends. He’s been saddled with a new sidekick, Hana. Maru, we all have our crosses to bear. His whole round video history is right here.
Teddy will gladly obliterate anything you put in front of him, and isn’t shy about sharing his opinion, either. He likes to hang out at Zooniversity, a wildlife education company and exotic animal rescue in Dallas. All Tedster videos live here.
The Bean gets into the Hall for the sheer WOW Factor of this first photo alone. But then this Fall 2013 photo sesh with Chris P. Bacon sends ’em BOTH into the stratosphere. That’s GOLD, Jerry. GOLD! Known associate of Chris P. Bacon. (Above.)
Maymo & Penny
The virtual definition of the word “Goofball.” Maymo and new pal Penny haven’t met a living room they wouldn’t like to trash. Gleefully. Check out a video or two at Maymo’s YouTube library.
Frostie The Snow Goat
The Lil’ Goat from Down Under touched many lives in his short stay on Earth.
Kodie packs a mighty wallop of Awesome QTE in his little body. I mean, LOOK AT THE TOP KNOT WILLYA.
These photos + video speak for themselves.
This tuff little guy made his C.O. debut back in 2006 and was battling health issues from 2011-on. He sadly passed away in July of 2014, but we’ll always remember him.
Do whatever you feel.
They get in for the name alone. The big ol’ schnozzles are just a bonus. Plus they’re Australian. Yes, Patrick is in here, but as a solo artist. Sorta like the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame- the Beach Boys are in as a group, but Brian Wilson is also in as a solo artist. Like that.
Martin “Marty” Mouse
Maybe the Cutest Dumbo ever. Sadly, Marty left us in November of 2014. Marty’s FB is here.
