Best pop culture animals of 2014

As we remember the year 2014, let us recall the animals.

There were those that strengthened their brands (hello Grumpy Cat, Hello Kitty), ones Hollywood revived from history (Mr. Peabody, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and the relative few who managed to break through the online chatter and furiously find frequency in the ether (loving you, Tiny Hamster and “Eaten Alive” anaconda).

Here are the most notable animals of the year.
