Vootie #0

Vootie, "the fanzine of the Funny Animal Liberation Front" was a cartooning APA with a funny animal theme. It was founded in April 1976 by Minneapolis residents Reed Waller and Ken Fletcher. They edited 37 issues before the publication's dissolution in February 1983.

Taral Wayne claims responsibility for writing a letter to the editor Waller asking "why isn't there more sex in funny animals?." Waller responded by publishing the first episode of Omaha The Cat Dancer in Vootie #8.

Vootie's cessation led directly to the founding of the Rowrbrazzle furry APA one year later. The transition between Vootie and Rowrbrazzle is traditionally considered to be when funny animal fandom became furry fandom.
