I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.
The horse is not a dog
BUT THE BEARS AREN’T BEARS. BEARS CAN’T EVEN MOVE LIKE THAT, GODDAMNIT.THE FUCKING POINT IS THAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BEARS
NOT PEOPLE IN BEAR SUITS
AND BUY PEOPLE I MEAN OPPOSABLE THUMBS (AS THEY GRAB THINGS) AND WALKING UPRIGHT WITH EASE (WHICH BEARS CAN ONLY SORT OF DO)
THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE GODDAMN <i>BEARS</i>
AND ELINOR ONLY DID PHYSICAL BEARY THINGS LIKE 10 % OF THE TIME
YOU CAN MAKE THEM ACT LIKE HUMANS TURNED INTO BEARS
WITHOUT MAKING THEM GODDAMN PEOPLE
I actually had a huge problem with this, since Mark Andrews bragged about making the horse a real horse, not a caricature as in Tangled, and then I saw the movie and the horse was real…but the FUCKING BEARS—THE MAJOR GODDAMN PLOT POINT—WEREN’T.

I can’t tell if this is a joke or not because uh…. being “humans in bear suits” was… pretty much the whole point. Especially considering what a cornerstone the transformation between “cute anthropomorphic cartoon bear” and “feral realistic bear” was to the whole curse.
There’s a certain degree of lenience you kind of have to give cartoons. Complaining about the anthropomorphic bears in Brave is like saying Ratatoulli was about people in rat suits or that Oliver and Company was about people in dog suits or Lion King was about people in lion suits. It’s par for the course when you make an anthropomorphic animated animal expected to act like a person.
