Air Angels

In Bernie and the Putty, the lookies had a harrowing encounter with two air angels.

The concept for air angels comes from two fish I used to have when I kept fresh water aquariums as a kid.

The first was an angel fish.  They were remarkably thin, having evolved in waters full of reed-like blades of weeds.  Their thin shape was perfect for maneuvering between the weeds.  Their graceful nature, seeming to float in the water, was translated into the idea that a really light creature could do the same thing in air.
