This Hilarious Tumblr Interprets Downton Abbey Characters as Simpsons

A creative tumblr blog 'Simpsonized' Downton Abbey characters by portraying the cast as if they were illustrated on the long running cartoon show. The blog also depicts a variety of other pop culture casts, including everyone from Suits.

This series interprets Downton Abbey characters Bates and Anna, Mrs. Patmore and all the Crawleys. The Simpsonized cartoons are spot on, using the characteristic yellow skin tone. The mashup combines two unlikely television programs. The critically acclaimed British period drama stands in sharp contrast to the American satirical animated comedy. Seeing a Simpsonized version of the beloved Maggie Smith is slightly startling, as is seeing all the other upstanding theatre-trained British actors. Draw the Simpsons is certainly worth perusing.
