Well, they do in my world! I just got done creating a postcard with my latest work illustrating a nursery rhyme "The Flying Pig".
The fully illustrated rhyme is below.
I started to enjoy these characters a lot, wondering about their next stunt. The pig is so oblivious to his surroundings that his poor sidekick, The Magnificant Mondo, finds danger and chaos at every turn. Moving on with the show, the lion (who is tamer than tame and loves flowers) also has a dry sense of humor. "Why don't I surprise Magnificant Mondo with my next roar?"
And he does.
