I could maybe see getting rid of magpie. Other than Heckle and Jeckle, one doesn’t encounter too many magpies, and as far as I know, Heck and his homie are not in heavy Saturday morning rotation. But otter? Not that I see them in the wild but otters are at the zoo. They’re on Bob the Builder all the time. Plus they’re cute.
It’s the same problem as before. The publishers took out the nature words in favor of “modern” terms like mp3 player. My feeling on this hasn’t changed
