I always had an affection towards Cute characters and have understood the method to make something look cute: giving it the proportions and the facial features of a baby. In other words, a cute character should have a big sized head, small body, huge eyes and small mouth. This character was based on a bug. For some people insects are regarded revaulting and creepy, but by adding the 'cute' features it automatically becomes familiar to the viewer. So once again it is proven that when adding familiar features to characters we become attracted to them.
