These pop star cartoons form College Humor are humorous parodies featuring today's chart topping singers as cartoon characters from the 80s and 90s. Macklemore, a champion of human rights, has been reinvented as Captain Planet, the title character of a popular environmentalist cartoon from the early 90s. Justin Bieber has been rendered in the style of Babar, the famous cartoon elephant, while Kanye and the Yezzycats is a parody of Josie and the Pussycats and Katy Perry is a Jem and the Holograms-esque cartoon.
These pop star cartoons are clever, well-suited to their subjects and very topical in the realm of current pop culture. The cartoons referenced in these pop culture illustrations are fondly nostalgic, from droopy dog to Gem and the Holograms and Tiny Toons.
