Needs a better name. We have Impossible Shadow Puppets for, well, impossible shadow puppets. But we're missing the original trope, the cliched shadow puppets. The shapes that you can create with two hands. The three basic shadow puppets are:

  • A bunny (two fingers up for ears, curl the rest around to the thumb to make a face with an eyehole in the middle)
  • A dog (thumb as lower jaw, fingers as the head, pointer finger curved to make an eye)
  • A bird (join both hands at the thumbs and wave the fingers for wings)

I saw these being used in the first episode of Totally Spies! and was shocked that we didn't have the trope yet. Up for Grabs.
