Where would we be without the cartoon characters from our childhood? Most of us grew up with them, we laughed and suffered along with Homer, Mickey Mouse, and later Sponge Bob and Co. too. And we think they’re great as small, animated, nicely-drawn figures – but have you ever imagined what it would be like if these cartoon characters were suddenly real?
A number of artists felt inspired by the cartoon characters and decided to depict them in 3D. And the result is incredible! Let’s put it like this: They definitely look better as cartoon characters – but see for yourself!
#1 SpongeBob and Patrick
So who’s afraid of the popular sea dwellers?
Maybe spinach is not healthy enough after all?
#3 Luigi from Super Mario
Mario’s buddy would look pretty normal in real life it seems …
#4 Taddeus from SpongeBob
Hmm… very attractive. Not.
#5 Homer from The Simpsons
That’s how we always imagined Homer, right?
#6 Brain from Pinky and the Brain
Still kind of cute, right?
#7 Stitch from Lilo & Stitch
Fancy having a new pet?
#8 Fry from Futurama
A little too realistic, don’t you think?
#9 Stewie from Family Guy
You can really see how sneaky Stewie is here…
#10 Charlie Brown from Peanuts
He doesn’t look like he’s in a very good mood, does he?
#11 Mario from Super Mario
Would you allow this friendly plumber into your bathroom?
#12 Pikachu from Pokémon
The little one looks quite nasty…
#13 Professor Hubert J Farnsworth from Futurama
You wouldn’t want to bump into the Professor in a dark alley at night…
#14 Barney Rubble from The Flintstones
Fred Flintstone’s best friend looks like a nice guy.
#15 Beavis and Butthead
They wouldn’t look that different in 3D, right?
#16 The Southpark boys and their parents
Suddenly they look so well-behaved – which is not how we know them.
#17 Bart from The Simpsons
He was cuter when he was yellow and two-dimensional…
#18 Ned Flanders from The Simpsons
Prissy Ned would look just as (if not more) iffy in 3D, right?
Wolverine would look more evil than heroic…
#20 Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story
He’s definitely better-looking as a cartoon character – he looks more scary to us here!
