      Maybe you've been wondering, "huh, how can Mel and Foster wander the streets of Vancouver and not get seen as a moose and a beaver? Disguises, people!
A great disguise can conceal the most obvious of identities. Sherlock Holmes often disguised himself as somebody else to avoid being recognized; like say, a wallaby or a lamp post. Sometimes the best disguises are the unexpected ones.

In a more abstract sense, 'disguise' may refer to the act of disguising the nature of a particular proposal in order to hide an unpopular motivation or effect associated with that proposal (thanks wikipedia). Am I saying that Mel and Foster's intent is wrong? Is it wrong for a person to want more in life? To want a better habitat for their children (don't spin this, we're not transitioning into a BL comic or anything - beaver love, smirk).

Anyways, as I was saying. Mel is disguised because people see him as a human because he disguises himself as one. So it's really a double disguise. Remove the top disguise and you see Mel the office worker. Remove the second and you see a naked moose. Let's not go there.
