I went to see "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" today. Back in the late 1980s, there was a Television production combining two of the "Narnia" books by CS Lewis: "Prince Caspian And The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader".

In the world of Narnia, centaurs exist but supposedly not in the "real world". That may be so in the universe of literature and in the movie universe, but not so in Toobworld.

There were centaurs throughout the run of 'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys'; I think perhaps in 'Xena: Warrior Princess' as well. But those shows, for the most part, took place back in the shadowy Time of Legend, and one might think that in the modern age, centaurs would surely be extinct.

However, as we now see in an Old Spice bllipvert, centaurs not only still exist, but they live openly in modern society. And apparently they're breeding with humans!

I wonder if this centaur's wife/girlfriend happens to be named Catherine....?

At least this particular centaur is also a serlinguist, speaking directly to the inhabitants of the real world......
