Happy February 13th Zooficianados. Today we present Part 1 of our fabulous Valentine’s Day fanart collection, (with Part 2 to follow on the big day itself.)

For this first collection we’re focusing on some of Zootopia’s ‘other’ couples, both real and imagined.  Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.


We open with a collection of fanart images dedicated to the ‘real’ ships of Zootopia

First up we have Judy’s Mom and Dad.

Yep, Judy’s neighbors, Bucky and Pronk are a couple.  In fact, according to Zootopia co-director Byron Howard, they’re a married couple.

It’s pretty obvious to everyone by now that Benjamin Clawhauser has a huge crush on Gazelle

We never saw the face of Nick’s mother in the movie…and we never saw his father at all.   Even so, who can doubt that these two foxes were very much in love with each other?

Now, we move on to some of the ‘imaginary’ ships.

We begin with Jack Savage and Skye.  Even though today it’s pretty much conventional wisdom that they’re a couple, Disney never actually defined their relationship, (or even said if they had one.)

Don’t ask me why, but one of the most popular imaginary ships in the Zootopia Fanart community is Finnick and Gazelle

And finally…in case you’re wondering exactly how some of these weird ships could have happened, blame it on THIS guy.

Until tomorrow…


  1. To say nothing of fans with original characters paired with Zootopia characters. My own Dr. David Brushtail and Bellwether, the former being her prison reform therapist. 🙂
