Some of the most beloved cartoon characters of all time are from Disney, Nickelodeon, and Looney Tunes. While characters from these brands are drawn in different styles, majority of them share a lot of similarities. For one, most of them look cute and adorable, and are portrayed as fun-loving and kindhearted individuals. Though they can be silly and naughty at times, they all learn their lessons at the end of the day, making fans fall in love with them time and again. But what if they suddenly became the complete opposite of what they are?
Brave enough to ruin their own childhood, a number of talented artists have reimagined these characters as faces of terror that inflict fear and evoke disgust. If you don’t mind seeing the wicked and nasty side of these characters, then feel free to click through the slideshow below. However, consider yourself warned, as most of the artworks you’ll see are not for the faint-hearted.
#1 Skull Scrooge McDuck
Part of the Cartoon Fossils art series of Prague-based illustrator Filip Hodas, this 3D rendering of Scrooge McDuck’s fossilized skull is presented as though it is in a museum. Decorated with the character’s iconic pince-nez spectacles and black top hat, Scrooge’s fossilized skull sits atop a pedestal labeled with its supposed scientific name, Anas Scroogius. The piles of coins included the artwork are a nod to Scrooge’s title as the richest duck in the world, and serves as a reminder that being wealthy doesn’t exempt one from death.
