And so we ask ourselves, what would Zootopia have looked like had it been done in a different animation style? To try and answer that question, we present a collection of Zootopia fanart showing the characters as reimagined by various other animation studios.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to shoe the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Get your art after the break!

Nick and Judy 1920’s animation style.  I dunno; this look as little more like the Fleischer Studios that Disney to me.

Nick and Judy as rendered by Tex Avery.  She looks more like Jessica Rabbit than Red-Hot Riding Hood, but the way he’s drawn is priceless!

Until next time…


  1. Loved this selection of Zootopia art! These characters really transcend their origins. I really liked the Sonic, Pokemon, and particularly the Studio Ghibli styles!

  2. HOLY SMOKES–my two most favorite things together! a-ha was my first fandom…waaaaay back in 2000, when the internet was so much younger and much more innocent! Been across the big pond 8 times to see them–thanks for the memories 🙂
