In their origin story, it was explained that fragments from a strange meteor (which had been shattered by Franchise/{{Superman}} before it could hit Earth) were somehow transported to the AlternateUniverse called Earth-C, which was inhabited by HumanoidAnimals instead of humans (specifically, it's the setting of all the FunnyAnimal comics DC published back in the GoldenAge).

''Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew!'' is a team of [[AnimalSuperheroes Superhero Funny Animal]] characters owned by Creator/DCComics. They were first published in their own comic book series in the early 1980s, though it didn't last very long. Created by writer Creator/RoyThomas and artist Creator/ScottShaw, this was the first team of FunnyAnimal characters to be specifically recognized as being part of the Franchise/DCUniverse.

* BrickJoke: The end of ''Final Ark'', which deliberately tossed the brick for Creator/GrantMorrison to drop in ''FinalCrisis''.

* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Them]]: The Zoo Crew's fate at the end of ''The Final Ark'' seemed needlessly cruel and left a bad taste in a lot of long-time fans' mouths. Thankfully, this may have been a BrickJoke, resolved in ''FinalCrisis''; fan speculation has it that Creator/GrantMorrison used ''FinalCrisis'' to undo what he saw as obnoxious ExecutiveMeddling. Morrison later used Captain Carrot as a character in ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity'', where he knocked out a CaptainErsatz of ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk--[[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments with one punch]].
