Animation Land is a world where we suspend disbelief and enjoy the antics of talking, singing, dancing, often daredevil-stunt performing creatures. But have you ever stopped to wonder, why do so many of ’em NEVER wear pants..?!

Of course, there’s no reason why an animated creature shouldn’t wear whatever they like – but take a look at some of the random items they DO appear in and you have to wonder why there seems to be such a distinct lack of lower garments. Apart from our yellow underwater hero Bob. All together now…

Oh! Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
SpongeBob SquarePants!
Absorbant and yellow and porous is he!

    Not to nitpick, but I thought I ought to point out that #12 is not the
    Pink Panther, who is totally naked. That’s the Hanna-Barbera character,
    Snagglepuss!
