The Omnibus Anthropomorphic


Continuing our multipart series, there are a few modes left.


Magic School Bus is a transformer, who can not only be a bus, but take on other sizes and shapes to ferry its children on fantastical, yet educational, scientific field trips.

Cat Bus in My Neighbor Totoro is perhaps not anthropomorphized but feline-o-morphized. I am not sure if this is a bus-like a cat or a cat-like bus. Anyway, watch My Neighbor Totoro.

Bertie and Bulgy are two bus characters from Sodor, but they are diminished in the television versions of this rail-supremacist tale. Bertie merely is inferior to Thomas, but Bulgy is the butt of much jokes, being turned into a chicken coop. The magazine writers seem to have redeemed him into a play bus.
