Meanwhile, over at the Cute Lab

It's funny that we've only had ONE entry in the 'Cartoons' section of this site — UNTIL TODAY! Super fine illustrator Dan Sipple sent in this delightful Cuteologist cartoon; the Cuteologist is rating the 'Pawsitude of a potential subject" in the Cute Lab.


Of course he chose a Marmelade kitteh. The green skin is sweet, too.
XOXOXO, Dan! [Yes, he's the same guy as the ad on the right!]

Even the cuteologist has a small ear-to-head ratio. This guy thinks of everything.

I like how the kitteh and the girl have coordinating hair.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 06:46 AM

Ooooohh that little kitteh so wants to win. Love that her hair matches marmalade's.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 06:47 AM

how [bleeping] adorable. reminds me (slightly) of the PowerPuff Girls.

way to go, Dan!

Personally, I think the green skin counts against her. It looks either unhealthy or ogre-ish.

Loves it. Green skin and all.

Maybe she's a Martian Cuteologist.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 07:04 AM

If she an alien cuteologist, she's certainly found the dominant life form.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 07:14 AM

 |  May 16, 2006 at 07:14 AM

Olive? Or pistachio? :)

 |  May 16, 2006 at 07:19 AM

Love the glasses, I knew girls with glasses were cute, especially if she just has them on to look smart! Beauty and brains!

Mariser -- you're right, there *is* something Blossom about that lab tech.

Wups. No idea how I'd know that.

Somma us got a badunkadunk, whatever that is.

See the reason she has green skin is: (shimmer fade into scene from the past) As Meg was beginning her Cuteologist career, many other scientists were jealous of her repetitive exposure to marmalade kittens, bunnies, hammies, puppies and all other sorts of adorable cuteness. One day Dr. Taco, her arch nemesis decided that if he couldn't have some of the cute action then no one would, so he plotted to build a ray gun that would make sweet cuteologist Meg, as green on the outside as he felt on the inside in hopes that the animals and her colleagues would all run away in horror allowing him to take over the project... and the ray gun worked. Unfortunately what Dr. Taco didn't account for was the unconditional love of the cute little animals and the acceptance of Meg's fellow cuteoligists about the condition. Instead of making her the outcast he merely allowed her to stand out in a crowd, a lovely shade of green that set off her hair and pretty pink bow. In the end Dr. Taco went back to his boring work never understanding the power of the cute and Meg continued her work by spreading her findings to the rest of the world via an online site called Cute Overload.com. And the world was a better place for it.... the end.

I love the cutologist's inquisitive eyebrows. I can almost *hear* the "Hmmmm.... FAScinating!"

hehe great story, M! Totally love the cartoon - I'd buy a t-shirt of that! Look at that marmelade kitty - totally trying to earn more points with paws-up.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 08:45 AM

Folks? Sorry, my inner proofreader is going itchy. Altho I risk (probably justifiable) criticism for being pedantic, may I point out that it is spelt "marmAlade", not "marmElade".


/That's all. Back to the cute!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:34 AM
