Maybe More Mutanimals?





Looking through some art the other day and I came upon a couple drawings. I think these were Mutanimal mutants that didn't make the cut.

Note says that this is Skate, Man Ray's cousin. Don't ask me how...

And the horseshoe crab mutant is named Limulus.

Don't know why there are so many undersea mutants. Must have been because of Disney's Little Mermaid.

Here is the back shell of Limulus.

Awsome! I have a horseshoe crab mutant also!
Would you care to see him?
See like I said you've inspired me so much hehe :)
There really needs to be a action figure line like the 80's tmnt figures I miss all those crazy mutants.

-->> .. some to think of it ..

if 'RAY' from the TMNT toon ..wasn't going to be 'MAN RAY' ..

what would have Fillet's origin on the Mutanimal's toon ??

Same as in the comics when the marine guy was mutated ??

Of course! Man Ray NEEDS a villinous relative (Im assuming he's a bad guy cuz he doesn't appear to have the Mutanimals arm band thingy) who's a Skate! *lmao* But he'd have to be a British relative since Skate's are mostly found around the UK. Unless he was working at the same aquarium....

I love that the name of the Horseshoe crab is the Genus name for the species. *lol*

Okay tokka...here goes...


1. if 'RAY' from the TMNT toon ..wasn't going to be 'MAN RAY' ..

Man Ray existed before the cartoon episode. The "Ray" in the episode was intended to be Man Ray until Murph and I wouldn't allow his use. So Fred changed the design.

2. what would have Fillet's origin on the Mutanimal's toon ?? Same as in the comics when the marine guy was mutated ??


Yep.

You are correct dierna. Skate is not a member of the mutanimals and works the outer fringes of justice. Man Ray does not like this...

Excellent observation regarding the name Limulus
