If you ever wondered where the term "Wildfires" originated from, look no further.

First, I'd like to congratulate Zoootpia on their win for Best Animated Feature in the Golden Globes last month. This is a sorta gift for them, with that said...

Two weeks later and I finally get this done, I didn't expect to take this long. This will be quick he said, a couple of days he said.
But I digress, here's a little love for the young Nicholas Wilde in his days as a Junior Ranger Scout member. Showing initiative, determination and utter lack of public, environmental & self safety precautions. Showing off his impeccable practical skills.  
I wanted to give the little guy some scouts experience, before he evidently leaves the group as pertained in the film.

So if you recall, Nick mentioned in his story about his mother buying him a new uniform... Now you know why. 
Can't blame him though. Can't keep a clever fox down. Just look at George Clooney 
(And before you say "The Fantastic Mr Fox". I was referring to "Oceans 13", cause you know when Reuben Tishkoff is conned and nearly dies, Clooney goes and cons the conner...Never mind.)

Haha, now we know why he wasn't part of the Ranger scouts and why they wouldn't trust a fox!

The tiny text under drawing is nice add-on. TF2 reference, woo-hoo!

Does he have 2 hats on top of his head? More TF2 references?

Nick? wh- CRAP!!! *dashes into nick before the gasoline ignites, saving him but igniting my tail in the process then dashes to the lake nearby to put my tail out then teaches Nick all about everything in the Zootopia Junior Rangers*

I like the "what if Nick was accepted to the scouts" coming true through this drawing.

I didn't even spot that until I saw your comment. I was only checking back on a comment chain I'd joined a couple months ago.
