You know the Star Wars universe. You know the DC Extended Universe. You know the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
How about the Talking Animal Cinematic Universe?
Movies and television presents allow us to peer inside other worlds, worlds where almost anything is possible. Sometimes these lives are real. Sometimes they’re fiction. Sometimes they are shared world-wides designated across numerou peculiarities or series.
What if — and stay with us for a minute now — the live action movies and Tv pictures starring talking swine shall form part of a shared macrocosm?
How? We have three conflicting thoughts, each of them altogether probable and foolproof. One of them is a biological miracle. One of them is sickening for the swine. And the last one is terrifying for humans.
In 1961, a pony who retained the capability of speaking and understanding the English language impelled his offering known to humanity. His name was Mister Ed. Mister Ed was a mare( of course) who chose to speak through epigrams and puns than contemplate the troubling and recurring question of his only existence in a nature “thats really not” built for him yet.
In the very first episode of his series, his delightfully goofy human comrade Wilbur Post utters, “This whole thing is fantastic! I merely don’t understand it.”
Mr. Ed, responds with the crudely comedic, “Don’t try to. It’s bigger than both of us.”
What is poised as a comedic turn of phrase from a palomino( who wholly doesn’t have peanut butter in his cheek to form him look like he is talking) is actually a rather distinct evidence. What is higher than perhaps the first sentient and linguistically competent talking horse? A nuclear bomb?
In the early 1960 s, the United Mood government performed several nuclear bomb exams at the Los Alamos facility in Sante Fe, New Mexico( as has been described by actual writer Mark Kaufman ). Los Alamos became the testing facility for the Manhattan Project and the place for more than 50 evaluations between 1960 and 1961. Los Alamos was arguably so under wraps in its heyday that it’s uncertain what other kinds of testing were at play there.
The talking swine are victims of tragedy.
We’re not trying to make light of the immense misfortunes of nuclear warfare. We’re just trying to say that all talking animals are definitely a result of reckless nuclear testing that affected animals in such areas.
A single colt clearly wasn’t the only animal was influenced by this. Post Mister Ed , we witness more instances of movies in which animals talk amongst each other, but rarely to humen.
Truthfully, the talking animals are grievous fleshes — swine isolated from their own species and forced into the tyrannical arrangement of baby possession.
But by the ‘9 0s, with movies like Air Bud ( he couldn’t talk but had abnormal athletics prowess ), Paulie , and of course Babe , there was a small hope in the endowed animals that there might have been some community assembled with the humans. Not exclusively is everything more categories of talking animals, there were various generations of them( e.g. the Air Buddies story ).
As talking animal media progressed in the 2000 s, animals were fully integrated and learnt into human society. The iconic tv series Dog With a Blog commemorated the current zenith of talking animal cleverness, in which they are able to coexist alongside and even masquerade as humen on the internet.
Such is one idealistic alternative for these talking creatures. While these swine are not widely known by humans, there seems at least to be the potential for a most peaceful future.
But perhaps there’s a different reason that all these animals gained the ability to speak.
In Detective Pikachu , we experience an interesting power of Mewtwo’s. As one of the most powerful Pokemon in the Pokemon universe, Mewtwo has the ability to combine Pokemon and humans into a single being, with the human’s mind taking over the Pokemon’s body while the human body disappears.
It’s a disturbing phenomenon in the movie, but it could help explain how animals have ended up talking in movies and TV presents like Stuart Little , Feline and Dogs , and Mister Ed .
You see, there are these circumstances called Ultra Wormholes that were introduced to the Pokemon universe in 2016 ’s Pokemon Sun and Moon plays. These mysterious Ultra Wormholes, assembled by specific Legendary Pokemon and perhaps sometimes opened through other means, can be used to travel to Ultra Space, a kind of interdimensional room with roads to other universes.
One of these universes could be an alternate version of our own nature, and it’s possible that Mewtwo may have traveled to the talking animal macrocosm through an Ultra Wormhole.
Upon seeing this world where there are no Pokemon, perhaps Mewtwo searched ways to improve the intelligence of the animals and procreate them more Pokemon-like. Perhaps he melded a human being into the body of service animals. Maybe that’s how we got Milo and Otis, the stars of Milo and Otis .
Mewtwo works in mysterious ways.
The animals don’t know that they are being occupied by humans because, as Detective Pikachu establishes, the animals would experience amnesia and not remember their past lives as humans.
It’s absolutely logical to look at movies like Homeward Bound , Stuart Little , and Beverly Hills Chihuahua and sentiment them as a single universe. We are peering into an alternate dimension wherein Mewtwo is moving around like a idol, compounding human beings and swine seemingly at random.
Except we never participate Mewtwo do this. He’s a marionette original with invisible fibres, introducing the guinea pig of G-Force with human ability, holding Babe the pig complex thought and speech. It’s a terrifying prospect knowing that these people are captured inside the bodies of animals.
At the surface, Babe seems like an adorable, smart scarcely pig who’s just happy to be living. Underneath that, though, is a trapped spirit, joyous in its foolishnes of its own Cronenbergian flesh prison. A human life is essentially lost in Mewtwo’s pursuit of animal-human hybridization.
To what discontinue? We don’t know. Mewtwo works in inscrutable natures.
Finally, we cannot ignore the possibility that this alternate Earth — the one all these talking swine live in — has been invaded , not by a Mewtwo with unimaginable strengths, but by immigrants masquerading as animals.
In Men in Black , there’s a pug specified Frank who wears a little suit and can speak in clear English. It’s later revealed that Frank isn’t a puppy at all, but an alien who has shape-shifted into the form of an animal.
Could it be possible that all of these swine in the Talking Animal Cinematic Universe, from Mister Ed to the blogging pup Stan, are actually aliens that have altered themselves into familiar animals to gain humanity’s trust, originate closer to people, and learn from them?
There are at least three aliens categories that can disguise themselves at Earth mammals, according to Men in Black .
There are the Remoolians, which is what Frank is. Remoolians are thought to be small immigrants that can only shape shift into big mammals. As far as we are all aware of, Frank is the only Remoolian that traveled to Earth, but it’s quite possible that others arrived at various terms in history and disguised themselves as other dogs and small-time mammals.
Then there’s the Cephalapoids, a hasten of foreigners that can convincingly disguise themselves as humans. They’re seen use alongside Edgar the Bug who is of an third, insect-like genus that can also disguise itself by wearing the bark of the human rights. There’s no saying that these creatures can’t disguise themselves as something other than humans.
Edgar the Bug and his agents are intergalactic gunmen in search of powerful weapons and information. Why not disguise themselves as numerous animal assistants to gain the trust of humans in this alternate talking animal macrocosm? It’s much easier to trust an animal than a human, after all.
While some animal/ Remoolian composites are just enjoying their lives on Earth, these others are timidly scheming their extinction of humanity. Mister Ed is not as innocent as he seems, if this thing is true.
Good thing this isn’t happening in < em> our universe.
