Django is a computer programming critter. He is loyal only to computer programmers and does all their work. He types with the ball on the end of his tail, at the speed of light. He beeps when his work is done and when you take him home, he flies around the house, doing all your chores. He's a helpful little fellow.
Thanks to the folks who replied to the original post to the Django mailing list.
Lucinda got a real kick out of your responses. She also appreciated the other folks that have added their artistry to the Django Critter, too:
Andrew McCloud created a version of the Django Critter that Lucinda thinks is "so awesome!"
mrts made a Django Critter called the Django Genie (with banners)
Scott Lyons made a couple of backgrounds based on the mrts svg drawings
is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
