A Shagg E. answer: Comics character answers Crestview boy's question (VIDEO)

Michael never doubted that Shagg E. Dawg creator Peter Guren would use his question, which was, "Is it true that a raccoon cannot jump?" It was just a matter of time.

"I believed that he would answer it," Michael said. "It's finally in there!"

Guren, who said he receives questions from readers all over the country, said Michael's query caught his eye.

"Basically, I (didn't) know if raccoons can jump," he said. "It was a question I wanted an answer to, too. That's usually how it happens."

Michael, who received a stuffed Shagg E. Dawg for having his question published, added the plush pooch to his collection of 44 stuffed critters.

Homeschooled brothers Michael and Jimmy, 14, now have 61 stuffed animals, collectively.

When Michael's not studying or playing with the toys, he builds things with Lego blocks and plays with Transformers.
