  • Reminds me of my question about curious George. Was he really a monkey? If so, where's his tail?

  • Maybe they are not udders. Maybe they are a lot of Little Odie Odies! Woo Hoo!

  • Yeah, I have wondered that myself. All the male cows have udders on there....

  • i think they did it to confuse moms and have us wondering WTH was going on...or maybe they are just idiots and didn't realize that boy cows don't have those...

  • Because a bull would be scary to young children (they're mean and have horns) and the black and white milk cow is familiar. Kids don't know that boy cows don't have udders and give milk.....

  • I was wondering the same thing!

  • I think its because in the game you milk yourself to make butter and cheese and need the udders.Maybe they don't know boys dont have udders.They do have nipples,but they're not engorged!

  • Maybe so the kids aren't confused about what kind of animal it is? To make the parents wonder why the male cow has udders? The writers/illustrators just wanted to see all the parents sit and wonder and let it bother us?
