Why was this rejected? I don't think I've ever seen a cat design rejected in the derby.

Mogwai is not a generic term. Specific fictional names are pretty much always rejected.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Actually Mogwai is a generic term. That's how this one fit the "Myth" section.

Yes, I know. But Mogwai is also the specific name of the fictional character in the movie Gremlins. Which means...Well. Big red letters.

Hmm I'm not sure if I understand? The name of the character in Gremlins is "Gizmo" and he is a fictional animal known as "Mogwai". As that word can't be protected under copyright I'm guessing there is some other reason this can't be printed. I specifically used the term Mogwai instead of Gizmo for this reason.

you don't think the image itself could be considered a little too close to the (copyrighted) character design from the movie?
