Takuginai (children’s series) makes a point of not depicting certain animals with human friendly qualities. We don’t want to portray animals as cute and cuddly because Inuit are dependent on seals for food and polar bears pose a real danger. The producers chose animal puppet characters whose purpose are fairly neutral in Inuit tradition such as Tulu the Raven and Johnny the Lemming.
