Zooming in the Cart

You'll remember that we have continually had tipping problems with Popeye's cart since day 1, something that been driving me crazy. Quite unexpectedly though, the cart now seems a lot more stable since Popeye had his legs amputated. I guess the weight of his hind legs hanging forward on either side of the cart was causing most of the problems.

Previously, I would not even allow Popeye to walk too fast in his cart because the wheels would hop up and increase the risk of the cart falling over to its side (which it did several times). Running was out of the question because the cart was guaranteed to tip over, even if he was just running in a straight line. And while the cart still isn't perfect, moderate zooming is now allowed.

"Race you!"

"Hey, where'd you go slowpokes?"

"There you are!"
