Coco Development by CMcC Coco Development by CMcC
Coco is a bit complicated to explain but I'll try. As you might know from "Good Wilt Hunting" Coco was found on a deserted island. Well I based her look on the images her creator was exposed to on the island. Her head is the palm trees that dominated the landscape. Her body is the crashed wreckage of the plane which brought her creator to the island. Her beak is a deflated rubber life raft. And her orange feet represent the sunburned feet that her creator stared at all day. Her name Coco comes from the Coconuts that her creator ate everyday. Her odd personality derives from the fact that her creator wasn't mentally all quite there from being on the island for so long. Phew!!

That explains her origins very well. That's more than that what the show says (NOT) pretty interesting designs though

I never thought Coco was conceived to be a slug so early in the show's development.

Her all makes so much sense now. 
Well. Now I'm thoroughly depressed. 
StrawberryR Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
If she can lay eggs with anything, maybe the creator had her lay an egg with a raft so they could escape, and that left Coco all alone? o.o

That Coco body on the bottom right handed corner is going to give me nightmares...
Whetsit-Tuya Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Student Filmographer
It's her running at first I thought it was a monkey mixed with a tree
YotsubaandDrawing Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013   Digital Artist
I think the one on the TOP right corner will....
raggyrabbit94 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
wow, interesting back story, i always wondered why coco's body looked plane like...
speaking of 'wonder', when is 'wander over yonder' gonna come out?
YotsubaandDrawing Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013   Digital Artist
Late this fall.
ChulaEntertainment Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Also I don't think her creator died. Remember the Christmas Special when Coco was working as Santa to buy plane tickets to see her "family"?
ChulaEntertainment Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
So? What about the eggs? Was the creator thinking about Easter when creating coco? Or were they stuck on an island on Easter day?OR??!!!! Was the creator actually the Easter bunny??!?!?!?!?! O.O
InsaneAsylum123 Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013
I think with the eggs, the creator was imagining all the things he wanted in life and to get off the island.

I never knew she had such an elaborate background! Very interesting indeed. :nod:

That's...that's actually a really sad backstory...

I love you, Coco!!!
jasmineneal Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
so her creator was rescued?
IllegalSympathy Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If she did she left Coco to rot
midone Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
CoCo's Creator MAY Have Been (Sorry to say this) Frankie. Frankie May have forgotten about the island as she had this memory erased. Although, it could be that her creator swam back. or they were rescued. i think the rescued one is the most understandable
pokemonchix Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
What. No. Dint you watch "Good wilt hunting"?
jasmineneal Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
so did her creator die?
mixy-shiru Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012
did her creator die? : (
Ashiko-the-muse Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012
That's actually...quite sad. No, it's very sad, tragic even. If you think about it, Coco was probably there to see her creator pretty much die...Perhaps the creator knew there was no hope for rescue and made Coco for at least some company before her final days, someone to talk to and try not to drive herself insane with loneliness. So I have to wonder, since it was said they found no one on the island, did Coco have to bury her own creator? That, along with the creator's own mental instability, it's no wonder Coco is so cuckoo. As a kid (or at least a younger kid, I think I was in middle school when I first watched Fosters) I always sort of liked her in the way you're supposed to like comic reliefs. They're funny, they deliver the punchline, and in her case, she was an eccentric nutcase which made her likable. Now as I get older and re-watch the shows I grew up with, and even shows I watch today directed at my age group, you tend to notice that the "comic reliefs" have the sad back stories and tragic histories and at first you get bummed because they always seemed happy but then you realize it kind of makes sense. They're funny to escape their own pain. I always tend to love the comic relief the most in most shows I watch or books I read and now I can understand why. They're relatable in the way the others aren't. They're usually the more complex character and the more underestimated character because of they're "quirkiness" or "class clown" ways, which are either ignored or found annoyed by the the main character/cast members. Because they usually want it to be that way. They want to be known as funny or happy so that no one can see the pain they're going through or went through in the past. Coco is like that to the extreme. Pretty much everything about her, physically, from the head that looks like the palm trees, to her feet that are supposed to resemble the feet of the girl who created her, to her own name, the only food her creator could find on that forsaken island, is heartbreaking and sad. But she's able to work that to her advantage and still make us laugh. And to me, that's what makes her the best character on the show.

How Old is Coacoa Suppose to be? i always imagined her as a 19 year old Girl. how old is she?
NathanStanfield Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
they say she was discovered in the jungle several years ago, so we don't actually know how old they are. however imaginary friends don't grow up like we do, they are imagined full form exactly the way they are for the rest of there life. (I mean they look and act the same there whole life)
