* Several Walter Lantz characters, including Woody Woodpecker, and his regular opponent, Buzz Buzzard; and Andy Panda.

Neckerly for Nina (still works pretty well as she's a giraffe), Smiles for Patsy (a mongoose), Clogmeyer or Samson (a guinea pig), and Lumpus for....Scoutmaster Lumpus (a moose with his first name being Algonquin).
