Magic Sweater Brings Out the Good and Bad in Childhood Favorites

Ausralian illustrator Magic Sweater adds to his mischievous portfolio with a number of works that depict both the good and bad in some favorite childhood cartoons. Using subjects such as Tin Tin and the Babysitter's Club as a base, Magic Sweater reveals the side they didn't show you on TV.

By working in a childlike style, Magic Sweater masks the evil and subversive parts of his work. For example, one piece shows a mermaid and kids eating ice cream on a beach. It is only upon closer inspection that one sees that a giant robot worm creature has eaten the ice cream truck driver, and that is why the kids are getting free ice cream.

It turns out that even the nicest-looking cartoons have a dark side.
