The Outsiders Animal Project
Transcript of The Outsiders Animal Project
In my opinion I think a Rough Collie represents Ponyboy's character traits. They are both very friendly, intelligent and very good at interacting with other animals, children and people. Rough Collie's have a history of being incredibly loyal and protective of their owners and families just like Pony is very protective and will do anything to help his friends and family out. This is a quote from Ponyboy, "You take up for your buddies, no matter what they do. When you're a gang, you stick up for the members. If you don't stick up for them, stick together, make like brothers, it isn't a gang any more. It's a pack.A snarling, distrustful, bickering pack," He doesn't betray his friends, just like a Rough Collie wouldn't betray his owner or friends. Rough Collie's are also independent dogs, like Ponyboy. Here is a quote, "I had a long walk home and no company, but I usually lone it anyway, for no reason except that I like to watch movies undisturbed so I can get into them and live with the actors". I think that Ponyboy is very much like a Rough Collie.
I think that Johnny's personality and character traits are very similar to a Chinese Zodiac Rabbit. The Chinese Zodiac Rabbits are observers and like to stick to the sidelines, sort of like Johnny does. Since they like to stick to the sidelines people typically mistake them for being unsociable and stiff. They treat others with a lot of respect and courtesy, but when others do not return the favor they will not put up with that. Johnny respects others tremendously but he can't stand it when others treat one another bad or rudely. Just like when Johnny killed Bob, the Soc., for hurting Ponyboy. The Chinese Zodiac Rabbits are sensitive and shy. I would think of Johnny as sensitive and shy as well. They are also empathetic, just like Johnny. This is the quote from right after Johnny killed Bob, "Then I saw Johnny, he was sitting right next to me, one elbow on his knee and starring right ahead. He was a strange greenish-white and his eyes were huger than I'd ever seen them." Chinese Zodiac Rabbits are also very caring. like Johnny. Here is a quote from when Johnny put a jacket on Ponyboy because he looked cold during the night and went out early to get the groceries for him. This is a quote that Ponyboy says "I pushed off Johnny's jean jacket, which had somehow gotten thrown across me, and blinked, scratching my head". This is when Johnny laid his jacket on Ponyboy because he was cold. Johnny really is caring, just like the Chinese Zodiac Rabbit.
I think Soda would be most like a chimpanzee for many reasons. One, because chimpanzee's are very caring and understanding and also because chimpanzee's are a lot like humans. Soda is a very understanding person. Chimpanzee's are always very happy cheerful animals, a lot like Soda is very happy and cheerful. This is a quote Ponyboy says describing Soda, "Soda tries to understand, Soda is different from anybody; he understands everything almost". Chimpanzee's are happy and they smile a lot too. Just like Soda. Here is a quote from the book where Ponyboy is describing Soda again, "He's always happy go lucky and grinning". I think this tells you a lot about Soda's cheery personality which is much like a chimpanzee's. I think they are very much alike.
I think Dally well represents a vulture because vultures have a very intimidating appearance due to their very large wing span and their frightening appearance. Just like Dally has an intimidating appearance, "He has an elfish face, with high cheek bones and a pointed chin, small sharp animal teeth, and ears like a lynx, his eyes were blue, blazing ice cold with a hatred of the whole world". Just like a vulture Dally's attitude and appearance is very intimidating yet unique. Vultures are also very bold and daring and they do everything with no regrets. Just like Dally. They are both very tough and hard core. Here is a quote, "I've heard about Dallas Winston, and he looked as hard as nails and twice as tough,"
Keith (Two-bit Mathews)
I think Two-bit is very much like a wolf. Wolves are highly social animals. I think Two-bit is a very social character. Here is a quote Ponyboy says to describe Two-bit, "Everything he said was so irresistibly funny that he just had to let the police in on it to brighten up their dull lives". I like this quote because it reveals a lot about his personality. Wolves are much like this, they are social just like Two-bit. For example with the police. He likes to make people laugh. Wolves like to live in packs, just like Two-bit is in a pack with the Greasers. They are a pack and a family. Here is another quote that Ponyboy says to describe Two-bit's highly social personality, "I liked him real well because he kept us laughing at ourselves as well as at other things." This quote really tells us that he is very social and funny, like a wolf.
