Awright Zootopia fans…c’mere, we got things to discuss.
Now, what’s happening over here is a perfectly legitimate Art of the Day collection, posted in celebration of Maurice La Marche gettin’ the Annie Award for Best Voice Acting in an Animated Television/Broadcasting Production.
You ain’t gotta problem with that, right? Good, glad to hear it; gettin’ iced is VERY unpleasant.
Okay, now we got that squared away, you need to go check out the artwork downstairs. Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.
Otherwise…that’s a nice, little computer you got there; real shame if anything was to HAPPEN to it.
We open with some concept art of the Big Shrew.
Here’s earliest known concept pic of him. As you can see, Mr. Big was more Little Caesar than Godfather in his first incarnation

Here’s a more updated version; kind of a ‘County Club’ look, and I admit, it doesn’t quite work for me.
|My lil’ Frien’! by Cory Loftis
And the Big Shrew in his final form. Note the ladybug stickpin on his lapel. We’re not sure about that grub in his other paw. It’s either a pet or a snack; take your pick.

This one is actually a reproduction of a concept pic. Apparently Mr. Big was a lot nastier in his initial concept than in the final version

And now, lets move on to some fanart pics of the Godfather of Tundratown

This probably the most well known rendition of Mr. Big…taken, of course, from The Godfather movie poster,

The many moods of the Big Shrew.

Here’s a couple of 3D renderings of him.
Note the ruby ring on his toe; a nice touch.

Mr. Big — a shrew of respect.

That moment, right before he says the magic words…”Ice ’em!”

“Wai-i-i-t a minute…this is not wool; it’s the fur of a…a skunk’s butt. Why, that dirty, no-good, double-crossing, disrespectful…BRING ME THE HEAD OF NICHOLAS P. WILDE!”
|Mr. Big’s New Wool Rug by Devin Quigley
This one is notable for the image at bottom-right…taken from Marlon Brando’s final scene in The Godfather.

Now, let’s get into some pictures of Mr. Big as he appeared in the Zootopia+ episode, Godfather of the Bride.

|Mr. Big’s Childhood by @KG4503
Here he is after meeting Koslov for the first time.
|Young Mr. Big and Polar Bear Cub by erodrigu259
We’ve seen Mr. Big as both a kid and as an adult. Now here he is as a teenager, circa 1950–making his bones on the streets of Zootopia.
|Mr. Big as a Teenager by @boloidwastaken
Wherever Mr. Big goes, there goes his ever-faithful bodyguard/enforcer, Koslov.

This is one where we highly recommend that you click on the source-link. It’s part of a set of Zootopia-themed Tarot cards. Check ’em out, they’re wonderful.
|The Tower by @Masi_lululala
Here’s Mr. Big with Koslov and his driver, Mr. Manchas. In the Mafia hierarchy, being driver to a boss is actually a high-ranking position.

But no one is closer to Mr. Big than his daughter Fru-Fru…the apple of his eye.

“What do you mean ‘OUT?’ I aced that serve!”
“One more word out of you, and you’re going to ice it!”
|Zootopia Pole Vault and Tennis by FairytalesArtist
If anything untoward should ever happen to Mr. Big–God forbid–Fru would be the next in line to inherit his title.
And if you think HE’S ruthless…
|Miss. Big by Jusu-Tengu
Here he is in a little plot-twist comic
|BIG Plans by @ThankU89121860
Mr. Big never forgets a slight, but he also never forgets a favor. Case in point, when Judy saved his daughter’s life.
|Piano Concerto by @ThankU89121860
Here’s an interesting little role-reversal pic. This time Nick is the mob boss and Mr. Big is the supplicant, pleading for mercy.
|Situation Swap by Thorn
We wrap things up with the Big Shrew appearing in a series of crossover images.
The Godfather meets the Oyabun.

I dunno, Mr. Big. I wouldn’t trust that animal any further than I can throw the Climate Wall
|Meancin Miniscule Mob by Heyhopperart
Here’s two pics of Mr. Big as Jabba the Hutt

Oh, come now…we couldn’t leave out The Brain. He’s only the voice-over role for which Maurice La Marche is most well known–as well as the one for which he won his first Annie Award..
Are you pondering what I’m pondering?

And finally…it’s so HARD to get good help these days.

Until next time…
Never would have thought to see Derpy as Mr Big’s muscle.
