Ho-Ho-Ho, Merrrrrry Christmas, all ye good fans of Zootopia!

It’s time, once again, for our annual Christmas fanart collection. Welcome, welcome one and all; come in and know us better Mammals!  We moved this week’s Art of the Day to Saturday, the better to allow for the latest Zootopia Xmas pics to be added.

We’ve got some great ones lined up for you this year.  And so, without further ado, let’s scroll down and see what Santa Fox brought.  Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.

Mr Ives?  A little appropriate music if you please…


The popular Christmas Fanart this year feature the ladies of the Hopps family, modeling their Xmas dresses. 

We begin with a series by our perennial favorite, the one and only Qalcove.

As the Hopps family Matriarch, it’s only right that we give Bonnie the first slot.

Ehhh, who else?  As you can see, Nick’s Christmas ensemble is a mite more casual than Judy’s.

We’ve all had this kind of experience, at one time or another.
Tch, someone should have told Nick and Judy that the DMV isn’t the only outfit in Zootopia staffed by sloths.

Note how Nick’s ugly sweater has the ornaments, while Judy’s has the lights; a very clever touch.

Well, of course we have a WildeHopps mistletoe pic; this collection wouldn’t be complete without one.
