Behind the Scenes:
It's always a challenge to come up with a plot and theme for a new Cork and Fuzz story. The two characters need to experience things that kids can relate to, as well as the emotions a kid might go through when doing something fun or something not so fun. At the same time, Cork and Fuzz, being animals, have to stay true to their natures and environment. It might be fun to have Fuzz learn to ride a bike, but riding a bike isn't a natural thing for a possum to do. The same with other things young readers have suggested, i.e. CORK AND FUZZ MEET A DINOSAUR! CORK AND FUZZ GET KIDNAPPED BY ALIENS! or CORK AND FUZZ TAME A LION! Sorry, guys, those things just aren't possible in Cork and Fuzz's world. But we will keep trying to come up with some fun and interesting plots, so keep reading!
