Shane the Same: Shane Concept

The eponymous Shane, alias "Shane the Same," a gorilla so called due to his very ritualistic behavior, always liking things to be "the same." He only likes the color brown and will only eat the same thing at the same place every day.

Shane the Same Concept: Janie Doe and Barry

A doe and bear respectively, the hapless waitress and unimpressed cook, owners of Shane's favorite restaurant, "The Brown Bear Cafe." Doomed to a life of making toast and black coffee. Or are they?

Shane the Same Concept: Josephine the Parrot
       
     
Shane the Same Concept: Josephine the Parrot

A scarlet macaw, the boisterous and colorful (in every sense of the word) owner of the Coconut Cafe, Shane's diametric opposite.

"Try the mocha, it's delicious!"

Thus Shane discovers that chocolate makes everything better, even coffee.

Shane reluctantly discovers the joy of Caribbean dining (plantains, mocha, and tiny umbrellas in this case) via a pushy but well-intentioned waitress.

Or gorilla, as it were. Note the bow-tie and the smiling.

Shane the Same: Finale Picnic

Barry the bear is happy. Really.
