    It's definitely a ripoff.

    I disagree. It's similar, but it's not *that* similar.

    Put me down under "ripoff." What are the differences? The FCC character adds ears, a shirt, and thumbs, none of which are consequential. Of course, I'd never heard of either of these characters before.

    On an unrelated note, Michael Powell is a $%@*! [​IMG]

    And why the hell does the FCC need a kids zone?

    because they're supposedly protecting the kids, I guess.

    After looking at the pictures (and thanks for the links to the Doraemon sites), I'm not sure. Sure, there are a few vague similarities, but not enough to suggest a copy - at least not to me.

    Apparently that's obscene.

    I dont know, looks like 2 slightly similar fat cats. Maybe the creator of Garfield could sue both of them.

    But neither of them look like Garfield. Also, according to this fan site, "Doraemon was created in 1969-70 by Fujimoto Hiroshi and Motoo Abiko." (Garfield was created in 1978.)
