Here’s what your favourite cartoon characters USED to look like

Back in the 80’s when The Simpsons first aired on TV, Homer, Marge and the kids looked a whole lot different than they do today. Marge’s blue hair was nowhere near as tall as it is today, and Bart’s expression was a lot less cheeky and a lot more aggressive.

The Shrek character also changed dramatically over the years, from a typical picture book drawing to a more animated and friendly character.

Take a look at these iconic cartoon characters and see the dramatic changes they’ve taken to get them to where they are today.
