Art of the Day #471: Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

One thing you have to give Nick Wilde, folks; whenever Judy gets the blues, he always knows just what to do to cheer her up.

And hello again, one and all.  If you recall, last time out we presented an Art of the Day Collection dedicated to the sadder side of Zootopia.  And for the next few galleries, taking as our cue the Pixar film Inside Out, we’re going to be expanding on that theme.  Each week we’ll be presenting a collection of Zootopia fanart dedicated to one of the other four emotions depicted in that film, Anger, Fear, Disgust, and for this week’s theme, Joy.

And now, with that out of the way, let’s get to the artwork. Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.


Usually, we lead off these collections with a series of Judy pics.  Today, however, we’re letting Nick go first.

Not all of his childhood memories are sad ones.

And all grown-up.

Last week we had Judy performing some karaoke, so it’s only right that Nick should get the microphone this week.
Only…what’s up with that song?   Hey, DUMB fox, this is supposed to be an upbeat fanart collection; get with the program, willya?

Nick’s never in a better mood than when he’s just chillin’.

Another thing that’s guaranteed to put our favorite fox in a happy place is just letting him hang with some of the Hopps kids.

Okay, now let’s see a few pics of Judy in a good mood.

That’s our Jude-the-Dude; forever the optimist, even when she’s on SWAT detail.

And now it’s time for Nick and Judy to share some good vibrations.

And no one’s ever been better at taking them there than Zootopia Co-Director Byron Howard.

I believe it was a wise, old sage named Jimmy Bunnett who said it best.

Every once in a while their happiness gets a little one-sided.

Sometimes, even the smallest gesture is all you need to make someone happy.

We couldn’t decide at first whether to put this in the ‘Joy’ or ‘Fear’ collection.  Finally, we took a head-count; three happy souls to one terrified fennec.

Happiness wins.

And that leads us into our finale, a series of pics showing some of the other Zootopia cast members feelin’ all right.

Wow, Benjamin really looks happy in this one; I wonder what’s going on.

And Finally…

Ah, yes…of course.  Now Nick knows how YOU feel when he cracks those ‘Little Toot-Toot’ jokes.

Until next time…we leave you with this musical thought.

    Judy is highly miffed that her SWAT designation is Small Weaponized And Thicc.
