These charming characters were created for Check Into Cash's internal fraud-fighting efforts. I took influence from reruns of early 80's/90's cartoons like Secret Squirrel, Bonkers, and Ren & Stimpy. The dog Spot is the quintessential 'good dog' who has a lot of wacky rubber-hose like gestures and animations. Whereas the Villain - Scam acts more like Secret Squirrel or Boris from Rocky and Bullwinkle - always watching, waiting, and lurking. In tandem, these two create a very interesting dynamic between fraud fighter and fraudster.
