In our original, 1993, no-budget, kid actors, Tajaran Attack movie (you can find it at the end of the Archives (I called it the "Unaired Pilot"), the Wogglenathers were played by my dog, Dingo (Vice President Sniffer), and my friends' Alek (Jeffrey Bannister) and
Natasha's (Natashia Staratt) dog, Morgy (President Barkface). Morgy gave a
rather sterling performance, with amazing comedic timing. She even closed her mouth when her lines were finished. Dingo, on the other hand, kept looking away from the camera and trying to take off his "alien visor." Ah well... he was a great dog, even if he wasn't a great actor.
Also, I can't remember if this was on purpose, but Morgy (a girl dog) was voiced by my Dad (Kenyon), whereas Dingo (a boy) was voiced by my Mom (Therese). Except for one shot that I just now noticed, where Vice President Sniffer suddenly has Barkface's voice. Oops. Well, we DID say they were telepaths, so we wouldn't have to explain why their
mouths didn't match the dialog.
Anyway, when we elected to rewrite our old scripts into a (mostly) more serious comic series, we had to decide what the Wogglenathers would look like. It didn't take long to decide that they had to still be dogs. I mean really... is it any sillier than all the near humans Star Trek crews are always running into? I don't think so. If anything, it changes things up!

: @Oldarmourer I reckon the Wogglenathers are going to make fishcakes out of those Tajarans! :D

: Well the Wogglenathers are in for a huge shock! Very little of the comms message got through! Once they inform them of what is about to happen, it's all going to the dogs! :D

: Well, I wasn't aware how many different LEGO dogs exist!
