Sam Milham is an Australian illustrator whose cartoon renditions of some of the most well-known characters on television have garnered him more attention. The artist was previously known for his Super Mario cartoon renditions that transformed the video game characters to hipsters.

Some of his latest interpretations include figures like SpongeBob SquarePants, Fred Flintstone, Tweety Bird, Arnold of 'hey Arnold!', the Teletubbies, Jake from 'Adventure Time' and Pikachu. As most of these characters are known for their over-the-top and high-energy attitudes, Sam Milham's cartoon renditions view them in an entirely different light by imagining them before they've had their morning coffee.

This means that the usually tireless SpongeBob is shown as completely exhausted, with his eyes too sore to even open. Fred Flintstone is in especially bad shape, with Sam Milham illustrating him as having hit "Bedrock Bottom" after a life of drug addiction.
