72 Re-Imagined Animated Characters

From Distorted 90s Cartoons to Dinosaur Disney Princesses

— August 19, 2015 — Pop Culture
As nostalgia and curiosity collide, the remixing of popular animated characters has begun to become more and more commonplace. These new interpretations span a variety of genres and feature beloved cartoon characters both old and new.

The re-interpretations of famous cartoons gives the viewer a whole new creative perspective of old childhood favourites to explore. Often bizzare, but always interesting, they're a creative blend of genre and theme that shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

An especially popular favorite is the re-imagining of numerous iconic Disney princesses into new, interesting and sometimes even controversial situations. Famous animated characters like Ariel, Belle, Snow White and Jasmine can all be seen re-imagined as dinosaurs, the elderly, without makeup and even as glamorous 50s style pin-up girls as well.
