LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 9.16 11 Illustration by Kendall Regan Meeko, the raccoon from Pocahontas, is a real winner in my book, mainly because of the way he eats biscuits. You really can't resist that little crumby face. Kelsi Garson Advertising account executive Archimedes, the owl from the animated Sword in the Stone. Growing up watching that movie is probably where my fascination with owls started. I have two owl tattoos and almost got one of Archimedes. Maybe one day. Lindsay Flint Advertising production coordinator Dumbo. He can fly using his ears. Doesn't get any better than that. Dan Crutcher Publisher This will really date me, but I have to say Toonces the Driving Cat from Saturday Night Live. He was a CAT who could drive a CAR. If I recall, all of his driving excursions ended in a crash. Stacey Hallahan Advertising director Beasley, the Dogue de Bordeaux who played Hooch alongside Tom Hanks in Turner and Hooch, had the emotional range of Meryl Streep. All that barking and whimpering, that irresistible droopy face. He showed such loyalty. And he could drool on cue. Mary Chellis Austin Deputy editor I think Snoopy is my spirit animal. So many naps! And he is creative and uses his imagination (pilots his dog house) and doesn't need to speak to be understood. Aaron Kingsbury Photographer Nessie. Adam Mescan Photographer I love a lot of cartoon animals spanning the anthropomorphic spectrum, from drives-a-car- and-owns-an-iPhone to communicates-entirely- in-grunts. I'm poly for animated animals. But if I have to pick one, I suppose it has to be Jake the Dog, from the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time. He's a middle-aged dog capable of changing the shape of his body in creative ways: He can grow, shrink, stretch, morph into a house, a hang-glider, anything else. Sometimes he drives himself like a car, complete with furry orange seatbelts. Dylon Jones Senior editor familyallergy.com
