25 Iconic Cartoon Characters Reimagined As Humans

Cartoons have been around ever since the early 1900s. They have evolved over the years but first started out in 1908 when Émile Cohl created what historians credit the first ever cartoon. The animation was just over a minute and completely hand drawn.

Animation and cartoons have developed quite a bit since then and the medium is still going strong to this day. Kids who grew up anywhere from the 1960s through the 1990s probably have a fond memory of waking up early to watch Saturday morning cartoons.

Even if you are not a kid, there are several animated TV shows such as Family Guy, South Park, and Bob’s Burgers, which are geared more towards adults.

Disney and Pixar have been the dominating forces in Hollywood and Pixar even made the first computer-animated feature film-- Toy Story. Many of the best cartoons contain non-human characters.

Even when cartoons do portray humans, they are usually skewed in some way to make them seem more whimsical or cartoonish.

There are many talented artists out there who turn popular non-human cartoon characters into humans and the results are phenomenal.

Here are 25 Iconic Cartoon Characters Reimagined As Human.

25 The Penguins of Madagascar

Disney and Pixar often dominate the box office with their family-friendly features. One company who has proven they can stand up to the House of Mouse is Dreamworks. They have given fans some great series like Shrek, How To Train Your Dragon, and Kung Fu Panda.

Another one of their franchises came in 2005 and was called Madagascar. The movie was directed by Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath and starred comedy all-stars Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

While the movie only got mixed reviews with fans and critics, it made enough money to get two sequels called Madagascar: Escape 2  Africa and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.

Some of the funniest characters in the movies were the little penguins named Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private.

They were fan favorites which combined with the opportunity to make more money, caused Dreamworks to give them a spin-off movie called The Penguins of Madagascar. This reimagining was created by the artist Hallpen and shows all four penguins in human form.

The artist brought the penguins physical characteristics into the rendering as well as their personalities which is not always the easiest thing to do in art.

24 Nick and Judy

Walt Disney Studios usually has multiple movies coming out in a single year, and 2016 was no exception. The first Star Wars story film titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story came out that year as well as several animated Disney movies. Three of the most popular animated movies of the year were Moana, Finding Dory, and Zootopia. 

Zootopia was very well received and even won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film in 2017 beating out Moana, My Life as a Courgette, Kubo and the Two Strings, and the Studio Ghibli movie The Red Turtle. The movie had some tough competition for the award but ended up winning in the end. 

The movie focuses on a bunny cop and a con artist fox teaming up after discovering that something is terribly wrong in their city. The two main characters Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde are voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman respectively. 

This artwork by sakimichan does an excellent job of creating a human version of the bunny and fox duo. Their wardrobe matches their clothes from the movie and Nick’s hair is red, making him look more like a fox. 

Judy, on the other hand, has gray hair like a bunny with pink highlights making it look like the inside of a bunny’s floppy ears. Nick putting bunny ears up with his fingers is also a funny touch to the piece. 

23 Dory

Disney had kind of a slow year in 2003 for animated features. There were certainly a lot of movies that were pumped out that year but movies like Brother Bear, The Jungle Book 2, and Stitch! The Movie were not exactly Disney’s best works. 

One animated movie from Disney Pixar that did do incredibly well with fans and critics, however, was Finding Nemo. The movie had a heartfelt story about a Clownfish named Marlin trying to find his lost son named Nemo. Along the way, Marlin runs into a Blue Tang named Dory. 

Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, was a fan favorite character in the film partly because she suffers from short-term memory loss. If Disney Pixar was ever going to turn Dory into a human, they need to hire AtomiccircuS on as an artist because his artwork looks just like something Disney Pixar would make. 

The artwork appears to have been made with colored pencil and markers.

The artist even created a story for the character which reads, “The story would be that Marlin ( their father was kidnapped/ taken to an aquarium ) and 3 clown fish would go on a search for him. Their names would be Nemo, Jelly and Sea Sea. On their journey, they meet an underwater diver named Dory who seems to understand them and wishes to help them. From there, the adventure starts.”

22 Freddy Fazbear

In the horror world, the name Freddy is often a very frightening person. We, of course, have the famous Freddy Krueger and then we also have Freddy Fazbear. Freddy Fazbear is one of the main characters and often the face of the Five Nights at Freddy’s video games. 

The games usually center around a security guard who works for Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza and discovers that the animatronic characters come to life and are horrifying monsters after hours. It is a survival type game and you mainly depend on security cameras to survive. 

The video game, created by Scott Cawthon, has gotten numerous sequels, book adaptations, and there is even a movie in the works which will be directed by Chris Columbus. 

With as popular as the series has become since its introduction in 2014, there has been an abundance of fanart coming out for the video game characters. This specific piece by kawacy imagines the demonic bear named Freddy Fazbear as a human. 

This look is spot on, incorporating the characters black top hat and bowtie as well as giving the human a brown suit and hair to match the look of the bear.

The human version of Freddy is not nearly as scary as an animatronic bear running around, but if you ever wanted to picture Fazbear as a human, you can not get much better than this. 

21 Cosmo And Wanda

The Fairly OddParents was an immensely popular show for Nickelodeon back in the early 2000s, but the show started to plummet in quality for the later seasons. Despite this, the show has gone on for ten seasons and Nickelodeon has not announced whether their will be an eleventh season or not. 

The show has been canceled and then renewed five different times but given the recent quality of the show, it may be time to say goodbye. 

Wanda and Cosmo, Timmy Turner’s fairies, are two of the main characters of the show and have been married for 10,000 years. Despite Cosmo and Wanda having many human-like attributes, they are actually fairies.

However, that has not stopped fans from creating the human versions of Cosmo and Wanda. 

This illustration by sakimichan depicts a fully grown Cosmo and Wanda. The artist matched their clothes, hairstyles, and wands and even made the background look like a heart.

The human version of Cosmo and Wanda can be seen in the train-wreck of a movie called A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! starring Drake Bell as Timmy. 

Even though the world has already seen a human form of Cosmo and Wanda in an official movie, most people would agree that this artwork is much better than what fans got. 

20 Perry The Platypus

Phineas and Ferb was a popular Disney Channel show that ran from 2007-2015. Everybody knows that “There’s 104 days of summer vacation and school comes along just to end it. So the annual problem for our generation is finding a good way to spend it.”

The catchy theme song by rock band Bowling for Soup quickly sums up what the show is about, but Phineas and Ferb have an equally interesting pet named Perry. 

Perry is a normal Platypus when his owners are around, but he is also a secret agent for O.W.C.A which stands for The Organization Without a Cool Acronym. Going by the codename Agent P., Perry often battles his arch nemesis, Dr. Doofenshmirtz. 

Perry would not be nearly as interesting if he was a human, especially since Phineas and Ferb would not have an awesome pet. That being said, Fuwa2-Kyara nails the human form of Perry the Platypus in his artwork. 

This version of Perry has his signature brown fedora as well as a greenish teal suit to match the platypus’ true color. It would not make sense to have a human with a tail, but instead, the artist included an orange tie that resembles Perry’s big tail. 

19 Donald And Daisy

There are many famous fictional couples that people always root for. You have Jim and Pam from The Office, Jack and Rose from Titanic, and of course the iconic Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Almost equally iconic as Mickey and Minnie are Donald and Daisy Duck. 

Both Donald and Daisy are famous Disney characters. Donald made his first appearance in the cartoon The Wise Little Hen back in June 1934. Daisy was first introduced in the short Mr. Duck Steps Out in June 1940. 

Donald usually wears a blue sailor shirt and cap with a red bow tie. Daisy, on the other hand, wears a purple shirt with a big pink bow on her head. She also wears a bracelet and heals while her feathers make the appearance of a dress. 

The two are always shown to be madly in love with each other even though Donald can get on Daisy’s nerves. Their human form by chacckco taps into their love while putting a spin on their usual costumes. 

Their yellow beaks are portrayed through their yellow hair and their headgear is much more elaborate in their human forms.

Their upper lips also appear to be slightly bigger than the bottom making them look slightly like their duck forms. 

18 Lola Bunny

Warner Bros. may be giving fans huge summer blockbusters nowadays, but from 1930 to 1969, they were partly known for Looney Tunes. These cartoons, of course, introduced the famous characters Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tasmanian Devil, and so many more. 

Space Jam was a fun movie that not only included animated characters but live-action ones as well. The film grabbed the attention of sports fans and cartoon fans alike and featured famous basketball players such as Michael Jordan, Charley Barkley, Larry Bird, and many others. 

The movie hit well with kids but many adults were not amused by the cartoon. No matter what you think of the film, it did mark the debut of a fan favorite Looney Tunes character. Lola Bunny first appeared in the movie Space Jam in 1996 and has been very popular ever since. 

Despite her popularity, Warner Bros. felt the need to make her an over-objectified character in the movie, which was odd since even humans seemed to be attracted to the cartoon bunny in the movie. 

Thankfully, artists like sakimichan have made it less awkward by transforming Lola Bunny into a human like the artwork featured above. This version of Lola has her look down to a T, including her Tunes Squad jersey, white gloves, and basketballs. 

17 Sonic the Hedgehog

Even people who are not big on video games have at least heard of Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic was first introduced in 1991 when Sega released Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis console. 

The game was met with raving reviews and the game made enough money to get multiple sequels spanning many different consoles. While many elements of the games have changed throughout the years, Sonic has remained the most iconic character of the franchise.

Sonic even got his own TV show in the '90s but it only ran for two seasons from 1993-1994. Sonic the Hedgehog is also getting his own movie in 2019 from Paramount.

The movie currently has a November 2019 release date and new time director Jeff Fowler calling the shots for Sonic’s new film. James Marsden has also been cast in the movie as Sonic’s human companion who is thought to be a police officer. 

The movie would probably receive a lot of backlash if it decided to make Sonic a human, but there are plenty of fan artwork out there which could be translated to film.

This example by mazjojo shows a caucasian Sonic wearing his iconic white gloves as well as spinning a gold ring around his finger. The artist also incorporated Sonic’s blue fur by giving the human counterpart spikey blue hair as well as a blue hoodie. 

16 Lightning McQueen, Mater, And Guido

Disney had many sequels in 2006. Pirates of the Caribbean, Bambi, and Brother Bear all got a second movie and the Santa Clause films even got a third movie. The year 2006 also marked the beginning of the High School Musical frenzy as well as the introduction of the Cars series. 

Cars was about a hotshot racer named Lightning McQueen who discovers that there is more to life than just winning races. The concept for Cars was odd since it was not about race car drivers, but actually about the cars themselves. 

The cars had eyes and mouths and acted like humans even though they were literally cars. The concept sounds odd, but if anybody could pull it off, it was Disney-- and they did just that in 2006. 

The movie was well received and was even nominated for two Oscars including Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song and Best Animated Feature Film of the Year.

While the movie's characters certainly looked unique, one can’t help but wonder what the characters would look like as humans.

Thanks to artist JayofArtistika, fans no longer have to wonder for the characters Lightning McQueen, Mater, and Guido. 

Each of the characters sports clothing that matches the colors of their cars and their personalities are even represented by their facial expressions. 

15 Po

Jack Black has starred in many big projects since he started his acting career. He has starred in Peter Jackson’s King Kong, played R.L. Stine in Goosebumps, and even acted alongside Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Jack Black has been in many projects but he also was the voice behind one of Dreamworks biggest characters. Po is a male giant panda in the Kung Fu Panda trilogy. 

Po was adopted by Mr. Ping, a goose who owns a popular noodle shop. Po loved his noodles, and many other foods as you can tell by his big belly, but ultimately was drawn to Kung Fu. Throughout the films, it is explained that Po is a Dragon Warrior and is told to one day teach everyone the Panda Style of kung fu fighting. 

While Po is a giant panda in the movie, some people have imagined Po as a human since Jack Black’s voice was perfect for the role of Po. This artist, who is known simply as Lance, has drawn Po as a human but not included Jack Black in his design. 

Instead, the artist has tapped into Po’s fashion sense and based the character solely around the panda version of Jack Black.

14 WALL·E And EVE

The year 2008 brought the world a lovable little droid named WALL·E. WALL·E is set in the distant future where Earth’s civilization has had to flee to space after destroying their planet. The movie was adored by many fans and even won the Oscar in 2009 for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year. 

WALL·E was just as much a warning to keep the Earth clean as it was a love story between the two main characters WALL·E and Eve. Throughout the beginning of the fmovieilm, WALL·E is seen living his normal life doing what he was programmed to do: cleaning up garbage.

He is the last of his kind, and after 700 years, is the only WALL·E unit still functioning. 

One day, WALL·E comes across EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator) who is scanning for signs of vegetation. The two fall madly in love after traveling the galaxy with each other and together end up saving mankind. 

The movie itself was excellent, but these humanized versions of WALL·E and Eve are just as excellent. WALL·E looks like someone who has been picking trash all day and his posture eerily match that of a robot. 

Eve, on the other hand, looks graceful, hovering above WALL·E in awe of the kind gift that he is presenting her.

13 Frylock, Master Shake, And Meatwad

Many cartoon characters on this list are meant to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, but these three are a little different. Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad were part of a TV show called Aqua Teen Hunger Force. 

This show was a part of Cartoon Network’s nighttime broadcast on Adult Swim and was intended for mature audiences. While cartoons can usually be for both kids and adults, Aqua Teen Hunger Force was something that should be left for the grown-ups. 

Aqua Teen Hunger Force was on and off the air for fifteen years starting in 2000 and ran for eleven seasons. The show followed a milkshake, a meatball, and an order of fries as they went on adventures and hung out with their neighbor Carl Brutananadilewski.

This artist's rendering of the human versions of Frylock, Master Shake, and Meatwad could be an easy and awesome cosplay costume.

Artist HiddenMutation gave Frylock a red shirt and long curly hair to symbolize a box of fries. He also gave Master Shake a white hat, which is supposed to be a lid as well as a pair of yellow gloves.

Meatwad, on the other hand, has a red top and red hair which almost looks like the texture of Meatwad. 

12 Pikachu

In 1995, Satoshi Tajiri created Pokémon. The idea of little pocket monsters was very appealing to children in the '90s and turned Pokémon into a pop culture sensation. 

Pokémon started off as video games but eventually, it got its own trading card game and anime series to go with the incredibly popular games.

In the late '90s and early 2000s, Pokémon seemed to be everywhere. While there were always people looking forward to more Pokémon products, the Pokémon fad faded out until 2016, when Pokémon Go was released for IOS and Android. 

This unique mobile game got people off of the couch and out into the real world to find little pocket monsters. It helped people become more active while also improving people’s social skills since people would go out together to look for Pokémon. 

Today, there are over 800 known Pokémon but in the original series, there was only 151. One of those 151 was a cute little yellow fella named Pikachu. 

Pikachu is known for being Ash’s companion yet there is no cut and clear answer to the Pokémon’s gender. The artist emmitz not only reimagined Pikachu as a human, but also a girl. 

The artist implemented Pikachu’s yellow fur into this young girl's shirt and hair. Emmitz even drew the girls hair in pigtails so it would resemble Pikachu’s two ears. Her red cheeks and lightning bolt necklace are also both nice touches. 

11 Ariel

The Little Mermaid is not only a classic example of a Walt Disney movie but it also gave fans the first Disney princess who was Scandinavian and also the first princess who was a redhead. 

In the movie, Ariel rescues Prince Eric after his shipwreck is caused by a storm. Ariel quickly falls madly in love with Prince Eric.

Her father King Triton is less than pleased with her newfound love for the human world which causes Ariel to visit Ursula. Ursula tells Ariel that she can turn her into a human in exchange for her voice but if Prince Eric does not kiss her in three days, Ariel becomes Ursula’s prisoner. 

It was a trap from the beginning, but Ursula ends up losing in the end and King Triton lets Ariel become a human so that she can marry Prince Eric. 

Technically, Ariel does not belong on this list since she eventually becomes a human, but this artwork by fdasuarez was too good to pass up. This version of Ariel seems to be a bit older than the 16-year-old version we see in The Little Mermaid and even has a tattoo of a crab on her arm. 

This version of Ariel also has her usual purple clamshell top and her green fin is replaced by a green skirt. 

10 Spongebob Squarepants

SpongeBob SquarePants is one of Nickelodeon’s longest running and most successful shows. SpongeBob began his underwater adventures in 1999 and is still going strong to this day making him have several generations of fans. 

Some people find the little yellow sponge annoying, but its hard to not laugh at how relevant some of his jokes are to adulthood. There have been many fan artworks done of SpongeBob and other characters from the show over the last 19 years, but this is probably one of the best ones out there. 

This artist successfully made a human version of SpongeBob SquarePants that closely resembles the animation style of the TV show.

SpongeBob even has the gap in between his two front teeth and spots of freckles covering his cheeks, which are extremely similar to the original character. The only problem is that he would not really be able to be called SpongeBob since he is not a sponge anymore, but his hair is still yellow and makes his head look like a square sponge. 

There are many fan interpretations of the little yellow guy, but not many are able to match his personality and appearance like this one does. 

9 Simba And Nala

The Lion King took the world by storm in 1994. It tells the harrowing tale of a lion cub named Simba who runs into exile after his Uncle Scar makes him believe that his father’s passing was his fault.

Simba eventually realizes he has been tricked and returns to his hometown to reclaim the thrown.

The movie was beloved by fans and critics when it was released and it is still among one of Disney’s most cherished films. The movie won two Oscars in 1995. One for Best Music, Original Song”,which was awarded to Elton John and Tim Rice, and the other for Best Music, Original Score, which was awarded to Hans Zimmer.

The film was also nominated for the songs “Circle of Life” and “Hakuna Matata” making the Original Song category of the 1995 Oscars filled with three songs from The Lion King.

The final moment shared between Simba and Mufasa is one of the saddest moments in Disney history, but the romance between Simba and Nala is probably the most heartwarming.

While the voices behind the adult Simba and Nala were both Caucasian, the artist s0alaina reimagined the human version of Simba and Nala as black, and the results are incredible.

8 Stitch

Lilo & Stitch may not have been the most conventional Disney movie, but it was none the less a quality film. The movie storyline and characters appealed to both children and adults as it had two sisters of different age groups who were equally as memorable.

Lilo & Stitch was not about some woman in distress falling in love with a handsome prince. Instead, it swapped out the usual love story for a young girl who adopted an extra-terrestrial creature and despite his violent outbursts becomes part of her family.

The movie was nominated for the Oscar Best Animated Feature in 2003 but ultimately lost to Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece Spirited Away. While Lilo and Nani were memorable in their own way, Stitch stole the show. He was voiced by Chris Sanders, who also worked on the movie as a writer.

Throughout the movie, Lilo listens to a medley of rock music including many songs from Elvis Presley. In one scene, Stitch throws on a hula skirt and does a silly dance move, which is the pose this artist chose to use for his human interpretation of Stitch.

This artwork by roskolotu nails Stitch’s facial expression as well as incorporates his spacesuit in the form of a t-shirt. Bravo to this artist.

7 Mike and Sulley

The year 2001 was kind of a slow year for Disney’s animated movies. Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Recess: School’s Out were a hit or miss with audiences, but most people seemed to love Monsters, Inc.

Even though monsters indicate a scary movie, the film was nothing of the sort. Most of the animated monsters were like big colorful teddy bears especially Sulley.

James P. Sullivan was a giant blue monster with horns and spikes going down his back and tail. Sulley is mainly covered with blue fur with purple spots thrown in. Sulley was voiced by John Goodman and shared the screen with Billy Crystal.

Billy Crystal previously had roles in films like When Harry Met Sally… and Analyze This. In Monsters, Inc. Billy Crystal voiced Mike Wazowski who was a short, round, green monster with only one eye. The two monsters were best friends and are quite the dynamic duo.

The pair even got a prequel movie called Monsters University, which showed their beginnings in college and explained how they met. This artist has reimagined human versions of Mike and Sulley attending university.

For their human form, the artist got rid of Sulley’s blue and purple fur and instead formed it into a messy hair-do.

Mike’s hair, on the other hand, is bright green like his usual skin color. The artist also cleverly used Mike’s hair to cover up one of his eyes so that he looks more like his monster form.

6 Courage The Cowardly Dog

Courage might be a dog, but he is quite the scaredy-cat. Courage the Cowardly Dog was a TV show that aired for four seasons on Cartoon Network from 1999-2002.

The show followed a dog named Courage who constantly had to save his two elderly owners from supernatural danger. The show was suitable for children but some of the episodes and villains honestly were frightening.

Courage was a coward in all of the episodes, but who can blame him? Any dog in his position would be scared out of their mind but Courage usually managed to save the day. Courage was not only a fearful dog, but he also looked extremely funny.

The entire animation style for the series was unique but courage himself was a small pink dog with arms and legs the size of a toothpick.

The show was a fan-favorite on cartoon network and the pilot short called The Chicken from Outer Space was nominated for the Oscar of Best Short Film, Animated. The pilot ended up losing to Wallace and Gromit: A Close Shave but who can turn down Wallace and Gromit!

This rendering of a human version of Courage has uncanny similarities to his dog form. The human has a pink shirt and pink hair and most importantly, looks scared out of his mind.

5 Alvin And The Chipmunks

Alvin and the Chipmunks may be known for their silly movies by today’s generation, but Alvin and his friends have been around for quite some time. Alvin and the Chipmunks have been around since 1958 and started off as a singing music trio aimed for children entertainment.

The group was formed by Ross Bagdasarian Sr. and was originally called David Seville and the Chipmunks. 

The anthropomorphic chipmunk group consists of three members: Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.

Alvin was the mischevious one who tends to wear red colors. Simon was the smart one who always wore glasses and blue clothes, and Theodore was the sweetheart of the group. Theodore also favored the color green and was a bit on the chubbier side. 

Together the Chipmunks became a popular group, even though they were just a couple of auto-tuned human beings. Over the course of their long musical journey, their records have hit platinum three times and gold four times. 

Alvin, Simon, and Theodore have no doubt been popular during their lifetime which has spawned many fan artworks.

This specific piece by lazytime7 imagines what the chipmunks would look like if they were human. Alvin is, of course, wearing his iconic hoodie with the yellow "A" and Simon is wearing his glasses. The only thing missing is Theodore’s belly.

4 Red

Who knew apps would grow to become as popular as they are today? There seems to be an app for everything and companies have developed games specifically for your phone. One of the most popular game franchises that have come out for mobile devices is Angry Birds. 

Angry Birds was first released in 2009 and has since generated several sequels and spin-off games. The games are simple enough. You launch a bird from a slingshot and try to knock down a tower built by some green pigs. The concept sounds ridiculous but is none the less addicting. 

The franchise has gotten so much money that they have even been able to make a Star Wars themed Angry Birds as well as a Transformers version. The games have also expanded past the usual puzzle game into spin-off games that deal with tile-matching and racing as well. 

In 2016, Columbia Pictures and Rovio Animation released The Angry Birds Movie, which starred everyone’s favorite birds. The film was met with mixed reviews but the games keep on rolling out.

The most iconic bird of the flock is the one named Red. The artist Astkhik reimagined Red as a human and the result is pretty spot on to the original character.

Whether he is a bird or a boy, you would not want to mess with Red. 

3 Winnie The Pooh & Pals

Winnie-the-Pooh was created by author A. A. Milne in 1924. The character first appeared in the poetry book When We Were Very Young and was later named Winnie-the-Pooh in the book simply called Winnie-the-Pooh two years later in 1926.

Needless to say, this yellow little bear has been bringing smiles to children, and adults’, faces for years. 

Usually, whenever you see Winnie-the-Pooh, his human friend named Christopher Robin will be there with him. Christopher Robin was based on Milne’s son of the same name and the character first appeared in 1926. 

Besides Christopher Robin, Pooh has many other friends that live with him in the forest including Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, and Owl. Together they fill out Winnie-the-Pooh’s posse and are also good friends with Christopher Robin. 

Pooh and his friends have been in several movies and TV shows over the years and in 2018, fans will be getting a live-action Winnie-the-Pooh film titled Christopher Robin starring Ewan McGregor as an adult Christopher.

While it is fun to see human versions of Pooh and his friends like this one by MarcellSalek-26, it is a bit weirder to see Christopher Robin hanging around with a group of grown men.

Their personalities shine through in this drawing, but let’s keep them as animals next time around. 

2 CatDog

There are sometimes burning questions that people have after watching a kids cartoon. One of the weirdest shows that used to be on Nickelodeon was CatDog. 

CatDog presents us with a lot of questions. First of all, how does a CatDog even become a thing? How does it survive? How does it use the bathroom? There are so many questions, but fans tend to overlook how weird this show really was. 

The show was not the most popular with fans but it received three seasons, a total of 67 episodes, and a TV movie.

Tom Kenny, most known for being the voice of SpongeBob, voiced Dog and Jim Cummings voiced Cat. Cummings may not be as instantly recognized as Tom Kenny, but he has voiced roles for The Princess and the Frog, Winnie the Pooh, and Shrek.

This artwork by shadowpiratemoney7 shows what CatDog could possibly look like if they were humans. Instead of having them be some type of conjoined twins, the artist cleverly used a spotted scarf to join the two together. 

It almost looks like something an awkward mom would do for a Christmas picture but it works perfectly for CatDog.

Not only are they conjoined,but  their facial expressions show their personalities from the show and their hair symbolize the color of their noses. 

1 Marlin, Nemo, And Dory

While Dory has already had her time in the spotlight for this list, this artwork was too good to not include. This artwork by Darey-Dawn shows not just Dory, but also Marlin and Nemo as Humans. 

The artwork manages to look super realistic while still having a caricature feel to it. The artwork features Marlin in an orange sweater with a big white stripe along the center symbolizing a clownfish. Nemo is on his shoulders wearing an orange t-shirt and holding a crutch. 

Nemo in the movie has a “lucky fin,” which is smaller than his normal fin because it was damaged when he was a baby during the barracuda attack. Darey-Dawn incorporates this part of the movie in an interesting way but does not stop there. 

He also tackles illustrating their friend named Dory as well. Blue tang fish are usually yellow and blue and, of course, the human dory is wearing a blue dress with yellow boots. She is also wearing what appears to be a hair clip or a flower in her hair which resembles a set of yellow fins. 

There are some talented artists out there, and Darey-Dawn was able to accurately depict not one, not two, but three iconic cartoon characters.
