Chinese cartoonists are increasingly finding fame online, where a menagerie of animated animals are proving a hot with netizens. Deng Zhangyu reports.

In 2006, when blogs were still new in China, a group of cartoonists who had gathered at Beijing nicknamed their group "Capital Zoo", for the cartoon images they had created — a fox, a rabbit and a cat.

Now the most famous rabbit in China, Tuzki, is a popular emoticon, while the rest of the zoo is also well-known, thanks to the Internet.

Many cartoonists born after the 1980s found fame in a similar way: They created a cartoon image with stories, opened an online shop and various social network accounts such as weibo (the Chinese version of Twitter) and WeChat (a popular mobile phone messaging app).
