Prunella: Poodle or Rat?

Post by Snowth Poogle on Mon Jan 19, 2015 1:13 pm

I know this discussion came up a looong time ago over at ECC, but I thought we might as well discuss it here too, because it's still a subject of debate.

So, what exactly is Prunie supposed to be? A poodle? A rat? It's confusing because of the difference in official sources - Marc Brown Studios says that she's a poodle, but PBS (and presumably WGBH) says she's a rat.

I think I mentioned this at ECC, but when I think of a poodle in this universe, I think of Fern: of the different dog designs we have, hers is a softer and feminine look that would suggest that she's a poodle. I'm inclined to believe Marc Brown Studios that Prunie's a poodle, because they ought to know, Marc created these characters... but design-why, her appearance resembles Ratburn, who, well, is a rat: the lanky/slender frames, the long pointed snouts... I guess we couldn't rule out the possibility that she's interspecies.

But, perhaps ours is not to question why, so, whatevs.

I'd always just assumed that she was either a poodle or some lanky breed of dog.  However, the more I think about it and consider some of the surprising information brought to light in this post, I'm less and less certain.  It goes back to the rather confusing and irresolute issue of exactly who to hold as more canon when there are two high-level sources like this that are clearly in conflict.  

In the instant case, since Prunella was created by Marc Brown prior to PBS/WGBH gaining any rights or creative control over Arthur, I'm also going to go with her being a poodle as the most official explanation.

Molly and Marina, on the other hand...

I would always guess her as a poodle because she and her family look more like dogs then rats. scratch

Her whole family has ears that look like dog ears. Mr. Ratburn has ears like the aardvarks.
Just look up a picture of a poodle, and it looks way more like Prunella than Fern, Binky, Mr. Morris or any other dog on the show.
Google images has picked a clear side.
