Cats and dogs are fantastic pets, but nowadays it's all about one-upping your neighbor with a more unusual critter. There are designer dogs, micro pigs, lemurs, exotic birds; the choices are practically endless. A tank full of piranhas is a cool thing to show off to your friends, but the fun really stops there. What we need are some cute and loving creatures with a little more going on upstairs. And the ability to talk couldn't hurt either.

Let's face it: a nice majority of moviegoers wish, even if it's just the slightest bit, that their toys would come to life à la Toy Story. Or what about having a trusty magic carpet like in Aladdin? You could also go for Cinderella's pals Gus and Jaq, the talented mice who help make her dress for the ball. Like the growing amount of atypical pets out there, the possibilities are endless, but should Pixar, DreamWorks or any other animated filmmakers out there take 3D a step further and turn their creations into a reality, I've got a few suggestions for animated characters I wouldn't mind owning.

1. WALL-E's M-O
M-O may not give WALL-E the warmest welcome when our favorite waste allocation load lifter arrives aboard the Axiom, but that's only because he's just doing his job. M-O hangs around the ship hunting down foreign contaminants and poor WALL-E is covered in them. Who wouldn't want a little robot zooming around the house keeping the place clean? Of course M-O can get a little testy when on the job, but he comes through in the end and proves that he can overlook those foreign contaminants when a friend's in need.
