Okay, Your Honor….look, we know politicians like to kiss babies, but wouldn’t you prefer to keep your face intact?

Hello again everyone and welcome to this week’s Art of the Day collection–this time dedicated to Finnick, doing his baby-elephant act.

This was actually one of the few ideas from the ‘shock-collar’ version of Zootopia that made it into the final cut, albeit with some serious changes; (Finnick originally wore a diaper rather than ‘elephant sleepers’.)

And now, take it away, Little Toot-Toot, (and please don’t bite our faces off.)  Everybody else, enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Mr. Mancini?  Some appropriate music, if you please.


We begin with some solo images of Finnick in Little Toot-Toot mode.

Well-l-l-l, they say those cancer-sticks are the grown-up version of a pacifier.

Word to the wise; if you decide to go for one of those hugs, check your watch and wallet before you walk away.

Here’s some pics of Finnick with a Jumbo-Pop.  (How the heck does he manage to keep from falling over?)

And with that, we segue into a gallery of images, featuring ‘Baby’ Finnick together with his sometime partner in hustles, Nick Wilde.

Finnick is looking like, “I’ll GET him for this!”

Not an elephant costume, we know, but this was too good not to include.

No collection of Finnick fanart would be complete without a few pieces by Mortic Ox.

Celebrating a successful score, (but watch out for the bunny-cop behind you.)

And that calls for adding Judy to the mix.

“‘Woo-hoo,’ I thought. ‘Nick joined the ZPD’ I thought.  ‘Now I’ll NEVER have to put on that stupid baby-elephant costume again,’ I thought!”

Now, let’s move one to some random pics of Little Toot-Toot.

“Nick?  Nick!  I don’t need no stinkin’ Nick.”

Playing a baby elephant definitely has its drawbacks.

…but it also has its advantages.

Not many people know this, but before Nick and Finnick finally settled on that baby-elephant get up, they tried, and rejected, several other costume ideas.
(Okay, not really.)

And finally, have you ever wondered who Nick would have taken on as his partner, if Finnick had up and quit on him?

Neither have we.
