During the 'meets & greets' the human characters talk like Snow White, Ariel & Belle, but not the animal characters like Mickey, Donald or Goofy. During the shows the animal characters talk via recorded dialogue.
In a natural setting, no animal would live in a stable. And if an animal had a choice, they would choose to live in a shed or out in the open rather than a stable. But in a domestic farm setting, horses and dairy cows are the ones that live in a stable.
The characters that will be in Animal Crossing: City Folk are Sabel, Mabel, and Labelle (Sisters), Tom Nook, Lyle, Kapp'n, Dr. Shrunk, Saharah, Wendell, Pelly, Phyllis, Pete, and Tortimer, which are some of the main characters.
One setting is Manor Farm, another is Animal Farm. They are the same place, just with two different names. The only difference is that Manor Farm was controlled by humans. But after the animals rebelled against the humans, they renamed their farm, to animal farm. But the main setting is in Russia.
