Wow... it must be a conservative Republican thing to rip off anime. It's funny that the FCC is supposed to make the airwaves "better", yet they can't even be original. (I've never really liked the FCC anyway...)

On another note, I can't see anybody that watches anime going to the FCC website. Weird....

But I don't think its supposed to be Doreamon, this cat has ears, Doreamon doesn't

No, it's just a blatant rip off. Make him pukey-tan colored and add pointy ears! No one will ever know we have no creativity or souls!

They added cat ears to make him "original". Now everyone will think that the FCC came up with this seemingly familiar character. Mad

Realistically, everybody probably won't care.

Also, the use of Comic Sans on that page is horrific.

It looks similar, but I can see it easily being within the range of possibility that it is just a coincidence, it being a fairly simple drawing of an anthropomorphized cat.

Still, I'd imagine they'll make some cosmetic changes once someone points this out to them.

It could be a coincidence. The cats appearance is not too hard to cook up.

Unlike the Wolfwood "interpritation," this is a non-event.

Though the edited Wolfwood was a one shot thing. The wannabe Doraemon is all over the FCC kids section. =P

As a conservative Republican, I respectfully enquire as to what exactly I have to do with "ripping off" anime.

That Ban Comic Sans site rules, by the way.

I agree. It's obviously a rip-off. FCC sucks!

The head of the FCC is Micheal Powell, whom I seriously doubt watches anime, and thus, wouldn't notice.
