Close Up Animals With a Wide Angle Lens Wearing Hats

I was watching South Park reruns the other day and came across the ol' gem The Quest for Ratings.  The South Park crew kept getting beat in the ratings by Craig's television show "Close Up Animals With a Wide Angle Lens Wearing Hats."  Whereas Eric Cartman et al. was extremely dismayed at losing out to cute pets, (to quote another famous cartoon comedy) I for one would welcome our adorable overlords.  Here is some of the best of what I found while perusing Reddit's r/aww.

This brings me to a snap poll.  What baby animal is cuter?  Platypusses or Sloths.

Platypuses!

As you should remember from the South Park episode, Craig's original show that was taking television by storm was "Animals Close-Up With a Wide Angled Lens." Only after Cartman's news show beat "Animals Close-Up..." did Craig throw hats into the mix. I tried to select pictures in this tradition, with the final photo being devoted to a close up animal wearing headgear. I don't think that "Catman's" headgear could be described as a cowl, as a cowl involves more than just a hood and a cape. Sleeves, a necessary component of a cowl, are conspicuously absent. I appreciate the vigilance, however, and would tend to agree with you on the sloths v. platypuses debate.

Firstly, this is an extremely misleading title, as only one of those three pictures features an animal wearing a hat, and even that one could be more accurately characterized as a "cowl". Secondly, sloths.
