Emily is a girly dog that is excitable and buoyant. She holds onto her ponytails. She is friendly, fun and childlike in both her dress-sense and character.
Barry, Andy, Emily and Susan make up stereotypical personality types often found in cartoons. Their physical shapes are a balance of thin spindly limbs with bulbous round forms with over-sized feet placed sturdily on a bronze base-plate. The subtle differences in their postures however suggest very different personalities. The characters are reminiscent of the advent of animation the days of black and white Disney film shorts.
