Why Do The Tough Customers Look Like Teenagers?

Post by Buster & Molly Lover on Wed Feb 28, 2018 12:58 pm

Okay, Molly Binky Rattles Slink Are suppose to be 9 or 10 year olds. But they all look like there 15 or 16. I think It's because when your like 7, 8, or 9. A 11 or 12 year old kid looks more like a real big teenager. When I was in 4th Grade. All of the older kids were way bigger than I was. And when you finally grow up like 30 years old. All of the kids look more small than your average adult Size! lol!

Hey, that's a really neat rationalization! Smile

We can't all become like me, a stunning model with great sense of fashion (I've TRIED to teach). Instead they can't help it but they become bigger and ugly so they take it out on the rest by being bullies.

Isn't Rattles in the fifth grade (technically qualifying him as either 10 or 11)?

It's challenging to rationalize exactly why the Tough Customers appear as if they are teenagers. Yes, one could pose the argument that they only appear as such because of how Arthur and co. perceive them, but this is further rendered invalid whenever we see the Customers interacting with adults (in which they look identical to their typical appearances, suggesting that their unusually...mature attire isn't a product of perception). I guess there is no true answer. Unless some of them were simply held back from middle school, which seems to be the only likely explanation available (but then again, what is a Jekyllian potion addict doing discussing likelihood?).

I'm pretty sure it's all a case of taking creative license to visually emphasize that the Tough Customers are older characters - or, older than Arthur and his friends. By making them taller, and act older, it helps distinguish them from the other kids, because otherwise, if they looked and acted more like the age they're supposed to be, I don't think that little kids watching would be able to discern that the characters are supposed to be older than Arthur and his friends.

Conversely, look at the episode where Vecita gets her big girl bed, and D.W. tells her about the time she got her own big girl bed . . . a whole year earlier. Despite the flashbacks taking place only a year earlier, D.W. and the Tibbles look drastically different than their present-day designs to emphasize they were younger: their ears are much smaller, D.W.'s hair is much shorter, the Tibbles' neckerchiefs look huge on them . . . but again, it was just the year before.

Yeah, A lot of other cartoon shows are like that. Rolling Eyes
