Why don't your characters have noses? It's creepy.

Why don’t Kagan characters have noses?

For the same reason Patrick, the South Park crew, the Powerpuff Girls, and the Cookie Monster don’t...

For the same reason Homer, Mickey, and Bugs Bunny only have four fingers...

For the same reason Hello Kitty and Dilbert have no mouths...

...they are cartoon characters!

yeah, but the ones you mentioned aren't creepy. like yours are.
well, cartman is creepy, but in a different way.
yours are just plain weird. they scare me off. i want my cartoon characters either anatomically correct or clearly cartoony. Not a vague middle ground that scares my kids!

Thank you for your feedback. That's unfortunate you see them that way.

We've had countless wonderful comments about how upbeat, friendly, and well illustrated the Kagan characters are. Art, of course, is subjective so we can't please everyone.

Engagement, however, is universal so we hope you can look past the characters and to the more important methods of creating full student engagement.

Small noses are seen as attractive, thus for the most part, they're barely included with drawing and animation.
