From Depressed Bears to Tattooed Thugs

Take a trip down memory lane with these Winnie the Pooh creations. While these works may include the lovable Pooh Bear, they don't necessarily embrace the same values that were held in the original series.

In one artist's creation, the adorable animal gang looks like they all got beat up at a rave. Nevertheless, they still continue to party hard with their tattooed-covered bodies (even Piglet is pounding back a bottle of vodka). In another depiction, Pooh Bear has become Winnie the Hulk who has ripped out of his shirt while he chases down Piglet who is running away with his honey.

While many of these Winnie the Pooh creations are rather dark and twisted, it seems to be a common theme when it comes to parodying childhood cartoons.
