Try everything by kawacy

“I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
Till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again
No I won’t leave
I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail.”

“Try Everything” — Gazelle (Shakira)

That song was Zootopia’s one and only musical number. That puts it ahead of Big Hero 6 but way behind Frozen and Moana. Even so, there has been a veritable cornucopia of Zootopia musical artwork posted to the net since the movie’s release. Here, for your consideration are a few choice selections.

Get your art after the break..and be sure to check out the original sources

Now, let’s move on to a few performances by Nick and Judy.
“And it’s all over now, Baby Blue…”
 Nick on solo acoustic

But he’s always better with Judy on backup.
“Down by the water,
Down by the old, main drag.”

And now, a couple of crossover pics.


Nick as Miguel from Coco
Que nuestra canción no deje de latir 
Solo con tu amor yo puedo existir (recuérdame)

Okay, Carrots, let’s rock this joint!

Nick and Judy electric jam.  Notice the headstock on each of their guitars.  The song is The Connemara Fox

Nick does the duckwalk  (and he can play his guitar just like a ringing a bell.)

Hey everybody, let’s start a rock band!

Nick and Judy aren’t only ones rocking around here.  Let’s give a big Tundratown welcome to Fru-Fru and the Spirits in the Night

Of course, if we’re going to do musical moments, there have to be some musical crossovers.


Singin’ in the Rain.
(I don’t know about you, but somehow I just can’t wrap my brain around the idea of Finnick performing Make ‘Em Laugh.).

As with most things, however, reality does not quite live up to the expectation.  This is probably the closest Nick will ever get to actually rocking out on stage.

If you want to know how much they get for not playing, you couldn’t afford it
