We don’t know how we ended up at this gem online with these unlikely mashups of Japanese and US pop culture. We don’t know what kind of demented mind thinks of something as random as Kawaii Batman, Doreamon Alien or, yes, even a Pika Fuhrer — but we dig it.
John Atkinson is a cartoonist from Ottawa, Canada, who draws smart, humorous cartoons for his website, Wrong Hands. He started it up in 2011 and has been sharing puns in drawing form ever since. The story behind the title is funny too; he uses his right hand to control the mouse to create his drawings [...]
As it turns out, the future of these cartoon characters is pretty bleak. These images of a cartoon alternate universe might be a bit shocking and disturbing for those of us that grew up with these characters. Imagine a world where Spongebob Squarepants is a stoner, and Helga Pataki from Hey Arnold finally went off the deep-end with her crazed obsession with Arnold. You’ll never look at 90′s cartoons the same way again.
In northern Arizona, classic cartoon fans can visit a real-life Bedrock city, as seen in the Flintstones television show. Although it’s not an actual city, visitors can tour the large, colorful concrete buildings complete with decorated interiors. This is a great tourist spot especially for those who grew up watching this classic show.
I’ve been drawing ever since I can remember. It brings me more happiness than almost anything else. Most of it is colorful and cartoony. I hope you look at them and smile.
A couple of years ago, I started carrying around a notebook to try and remember the things my wife says that make me burst out laughing and turn them into cartoons. She was funny before this point, but all those pearls of hilarious wisdom from years gone by have been lost forever. But no more, damn it! Introducing a funny, romantic, and addictive webcomic. Even if I do say so myself.
Ever want to know what your favorite superhero is really like? Ever wondered what was going on in the head of one of your childhood cartoons? The truth is that they think of random stupidity, just like everyone else. The Munchausen Affect has given you a passage to those intimate, personal, and downright silly thoughts.
The iconic Simpsons intro has been reworked in so many creative ways over the years, from a real life version to a clever advertisement for Estonian TV (for real!). But this version, made from Lego pieces, takes the cake. What’s even more impressive is that the video was created by a thirteen year old.
What’s not to love about the idea of taking classic 1980s album covers (The Breakfast Club soundtrack, for instance) and reinterpreting them using characters from famous comic book series’. Illustrator Cliff Chiang has done just that. And he’s done it very well, with his takes on Jennifer Beals from Flashdancing as Electra and Duran Duran as Vampirella, among others.
This vitriolic rant by author and screenwriter Harlan Ellison (from the upcoming documentary about him called Dreams With Sharp Teeth) really hit a nerve with me. As someone who works in creative fields, I’ve encountered countless people/employers who think because I enjoy art and writing, I will be happy to do it for free.
First there was the real rife spoof of the classic Simpsons intro, now comes a real life version of the iconic Simpsons homestead. Situated in Henderson, Nevada, the house is a shrine to everything off-beat, off-colour, off-the-planet cartoon-y.
Yup, some people just have way too much time on their hands. But thank god they do. This real life version of the always captivating Simpsons intro is about as clever — and accurate — as it gets.
