He’s half-man, half-horse, and his butt is more man than horse (none of the animals on the show have tails, mostly a stylistic choice).
Also the man-half of BoJack is able to barf cotton candy, whereas the horse-half can’t vomit and gets gnarly colic. Watch the PBS documentary “The Science of Humanimals” for more fun facts!
I’m totally delighted that furries are into BoJack/my art in general. I’ve always drawn this way. When I was six, I drew myself as a cat who dressed and behaved like Weird Al Yankovic (that was the coolest thing I could imagine being).
I read the Furry Fandom wikipedia page to brush up on my knowledge and this description definitely fits : "…interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics," but I’m not a lifestyler & don’t find it erotic (no judgment if you do! just not my thing).
Winning a prestigious award for a piece of revenge writing is the dream of all smart women!
The character actions are totally dictated by Raphael and our brain trust of incredible writers, thank goodness, that’s the hardest thing. But background jokes and visual gags are a team effort - writers, storyboard artists, designers and directors, oh my!
For a lot of the puns, me and supervising director/funny friend Mike Hollingsworth come up with a list of options and pick the one that makes us laugh. My favorite task is designing artwork you see hanging on walls and writing little mugs/t-shirt gags.
Storyboard artist Aaron Long is responsible for “Bradley Hitler-Smith,” which…none of us can shut up about how funny that is.
Thank you for watching!!!
YES BOJACK IS GETTING A SECOND SEASON!!!! NETFLIX CALLS DIBS!!
Just for fun, here’s a sketch from when I first started designing the show (with watercolors!) back in 2012:
