I have to admit I have only a passing knowledge of Flaming Carrot, but I always got a kick out of his design, and what little I have read was genuinely funny. Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew was an interesting attempt by DC to tap into the cartoon animal market. They were smart to tie the characters to the main DCU through the concept of the multiverse, and it has been nice to see them return briefly here and there. The new DCU seems to have steered away from fun characters so who knows when they will pop up again. I think the Saturday morning animated DCU shorts that have been airing recently would be a cool place for them to appear.
