Kimchee took this photo at the Atlanta Zoo.  The C.O.X.C.U. warpage is my fault. 😉

(EDIT — corrected the photo credit.  Wups!  Sorry, Kimchee… am an eediot today…)


Natalie Dee has it right

They’re FDA-approved and a little squirmy, but that’s OK.

Good work KHyde and Natalie Dee!

An oldie, but goodie

The best part is the lion sliding down the giraffe leg. Delicious!


Thanks to Sparky, Theo and Nate M.

This is nice.

The “Cute” Character

You think WE have rules of cuteness? Let’s take a look at the original purveyors of cute with this drawing from Warner Bros. How many rules did we get right? Certainly not all of them.

To sum it up: "Cuteness is based on the basic proportions of a baby PLUS expressions of shyness or coyness." Well put!


Paging Zoe, your drawing is fabulous!

8-year old Zoe just captured the essence of C.O. in her simple gorgeous drawing, titled: "Cutie McCutestein". Zoe, WAY TO GO, girl! We can’t bear it either!!!


Thanks for sending in, Mom Rachel and Pop Kenny.

It’s Bananular!

This is the dumbest thing. But the song is so great! So, watch it 15 times before you go to bed tonight. Night night!

Thank you, Cathy!

Meanwhile, over at the Cute Lab

It’s funny that we’ve only had ONE entry in the ‘Cartoons’ section of this site — UNTIL TODAY! Super fine illustrator Dan Sipple sent in this delightful Cuteologist cartoon; the Cuteologist is rating the ‘Pawsitude of a potential subject" in the Cute Lab.


Of course he chose a Marmelade kitteh. The green skin is sweet, too.
XOXOXO, Dan! [Yes, he’s the same guy as the ad on the right!]

There’s a “Space Glenda” too…

CoverThis just in! Renée French has been confirmed as the creator of the “Glenda,” the cartoon logo for the Plan 9 Research system from Bell Labs. (Also used On this sweet book cover.)

Renée also goes by the pen name “Rainy Dohaney” when illustrating fabulously cute children’s books like “Tinka” on the right. Merci, Renée. Spaceglenda37Hineysm_1
