Toy Story 3's Mr. Pricklepants and Achewood's Philippe: Separated at Birth?
Posted 09.15.09 by reelz
Yesterday we got a closer look at Toy Story 3's new character, Mr. Pricklepants, a "lederhosen-wearing hedgehog" voiced by Timothy Dalton. We couldn't help but notice the strong resemblance he has with another character — specifically, the comic Achewood's young otter Philippe.
It's not just us, is it? Aside from Mr. Pricklepants' spiked back side, don't the two look remarkably alike? Heck, they both even wear a jaunty hat.
We're curious if any other of Philippe's traits will carry over to his doppelgänger, such as undyingly optimism and naïveté. That being said, it's hard to imagine too much childlike innocence from a character voiced by Dalton.
