So today i was thinking about how easy it was to talk to animals, I'm scary good with animals, and i realized something amazing, we can actually talk to animals. People always say they wish they could talk to animals but they are thinking of the magical communications that involves no effort on their part, just talk human and the animal automatically understands. This is something brought on by things like the newer Doctor Doolittle movies and The Wild Thornberries and we forget that animals can be easily talked to.
The original Doctor Doolittle portrayed a more accurate and quite realistic theory of "talking to animals", this lead me to realize that the psychology of the movies changed in a fascinating way. The original DD required the human to learn the animals language, for him to make the effort, and for him to stoop to the animals "lowly" level. The fact that humans are superior to other animals, and the doctor accommodating the animals, psychologically differed from the future movies where the humans were born or magically gifted with the ability and not only did gaining the ability require no effort but neither did using the ability. Anyways, it's really cool to realize that people can actually easily communicate with animals if they are patient enough to observe and learn the animals behavior.
