WHO YOU CALLING DWARF PLANET?
Pluto shares her views on her 2006 status change from Planet to Dwarf Planet

I guess nobody likes a rebel.

They liked me back when they discovered me back in 1930. Even back then, despite the fact that Iím over 4.2 billion (you heard me, BILLION!!!) km from the Earth, they could tell how cool I was (-375 degrees) and could so totally dig my hard rock (Iím made of ice and rock, baby!) that they dubbed me Planet X! But when 11-year-old Venetia Burney suggested they call me Pluto, after the mythological Roman God of the Underworld, no one could deny it was perfect. And thus I was dubbed the 9th planet of the Solar System.

But in 2006 a group of so-called "experts" from the International Astronomical Union stripped me of my full-fledged planet status and decided that I, Pluto, the Planetary Punker, the Queen of Cold, the galaxy gal who put the ďRockĒ in Rockstar --- should be deemed a dwarf planet.

And why? They donít like my estimated size (less than a fifth that of Earth) or where I come from (the Kuiper Belt), or my irregular, oval-shaped orbit. They couldnít handle that Iím different, that I refuse to conform to their rules about what makes a planet, that Iím a rebel.

But guess what? This is who I am. I know it. I embrace it. And I ainít changing for nobody. No matter what a group of ďinternational scientistĒ say, I ROCKóperiod!

So label me what you will. Planet or dwarf planet, I donít care. Iíll just keep rockiní to the beat of my own electric guitar, and be cool with just exactly who I am..

Rockiní Out!

Pluto

Hey, have you heard the news?  You and the other so-called dwarf planets maybe reclassified into being planets.  Now the Solar System will be having close to 100, more or less.  And the school kids won't have to memorize them all!

Especially when a probe flew by and its pictures show interesting features.  So, rock on, Pluto, I'll stand by you.

I still think Pluto is a planet. Just because it is 'small', it doesn't mean it can't be a planet. That's like saying that small people are not people for being small.

Composition and trajectory. (Movement) it didn't match the formal description of a planet... its more like a moon. Buut yeah it's still a planet to me. I'm ruled by both Pluto and Mars. Respectively.

Oh yeah! Thank you now I remember. Plus it must be its own planet unless proven otherwise, if it were a moon it'd have to orbit around another planet right :3

This is so perfect!

Pluto happens to be my favorite planet, always has been and always will be, and I was really upset when Pluto was demoted. I don't care what they say, Pluto will always be a planet in my eyes and I'm going to continue to call it just that :)

I love grunge look on this! And I agree, why didn't they leave Pluto as a planet? It's so weird that kids in elementary school learn that there are 8 planets instead of 9.

Is this character from a show? Kinda reminds me of PPG.

This is Lauren Faust's (this artist's) dream-child (or something like that) since around 2008. She's hoping the 'Galaxy Girls' title becomes a cartoon. And by the look of her resume from leading and assisting past animations, it'll likely happen in the future (which is hopefully soon!).

I have to agree, this is definitely one of the better arguments I've seen against the downgrade. Pluto's hardcore. Well, if it helps at all, there's a song about it!
