A Freaky Gallery of Cartoon Characters Untooned


There’s something unnerving about seeing cartoon characters brought to life.  Seeing exaggerated and disproportionate features on the face of a cartoon is common, but when those same features are stuck on the face of a realistic depiction of that character, it’s nothing short of jarring.

We’ve featured some of these cartoon characters “untooned” on this site before, but never have they all been conveniently placed in one gallery.  You can check out your favorite cartoon characters as they’d look in real life below, but as Mac California told Tom Welles in 8mm, there are some things you can’t un-see.  Grab your torches and pitchforks and prepared to be freaked out.

Buzz Lightyear:


Homer Simpson and Montgomery Burns:


Beavis and Butthead:


Jessica Rabbit:


Peter Griffin:


Charlie Brown:


Stewie Griffin:


Bart Simpson:




Hans Moleman:


Patrick Star:


Dungeon Master:

  • IcemanD

    Those were awesome. Bart Simpson looks like a lesbian or more specifically a bull dyke (if you don’t get offended easily).

  • moe

    The Bart one is easily the most terrifying.

    Jessica Rabbit = Va Va VOOM

  • Big Eaters Club

    Wow, Patrick Star looks eerily like how I’ve always pictured Judge Holden.

  • These are some of the coolest cartoons I’ve ever seen.

  • nio

  • Laura

    Thank you for the future nightmares this evening. Charlie Brown looks like Karl Pilkington from Ricky Gervais’s podcasts. Round spherical head. Crazy.

    Popeye is literally going to haunt me forever.

  • Madison

    No problem. If it makes you feel any better, I can’t get Patrick out of my head.

  • Laura

    Hahaha I somehow managed to skip over that one, so I’m just gonna go head to the kitchen to get an icepick and gouge my eyes out.

  • Jerica Grisham

    I’ve always loved Jessica Rabbit, and it does her justice. She’s one hot mama.

    Buzz Lightyear and Jessica Rabbit are like the only two that look best in real life ๐Ÿ˜€ lol the rest is just a complete nightmare =____=…

  • Kline

    Wouldn’t Buzz Lightyear have bigger chin? Like some sort of Jay Leno caricature, or obscure actor Robert Z’dar. Also, why is Popeye so wrinkly?

    • Nathan Forester

      Buzz should look like Patrick Warburton, who voiced him in the Buzz Lightyear cartoon series.

  • alx

    only buzz lightyear, jessica rabbit, and vegeta look good as humans

  • Sam

    Peter Griffin looks a bit like Micheal Moore.

  • Benny

    One of my friends told me that her computer got a virus when she clicked to this link. Please check that out.

    Er… why keep the cartoon proprtions? They don’t look like “Real Life” at all. Lightyear was the most “Real” looking

  • Hi I would like to change into a Cartoon Character Can you please give me some advise on how I can do it.

  • MzDavis

    WHERE did she get her license?! Out of a Cracker Jack box?!

  • Johan

    God damn! Those are great! =)

  • Patrick looks like something out of a kiddie version of Lovecraft’s “The Shadow Over Innsmouth.”

  • T.R.

    Bart will haunt my dreams.

  • violetxrain

    Patrick’s my favorite because he looks like a phallic abomination.

  • Boj Mullenders

    I F***Ing love it! Kudos to the artist. Hopefully theres is more in the making of these fine pieces of art. yes i said it art, bc thats what it is. at home (netherlands) my parents have an art gallery, that only shows modern art. i can tell you this belongs there. if you put these on the wall in huge formats…f***ing brilljant!

    greets from a dutch fan

    Patrick Star’s head looks like a fucking dildo. No offence

  • foxxi

    man these chracters are pretty ugly and intresting too look at, i winder if these wud do a tv series on adlut swimmm i wud watch it…

  • Cubiclepaint

    That was disturbing, but Buzz looks badass lol

  • Benny

    The Buzzlightyear one is the only one that looks legitimately more realistic, the others mostly just look like a cartoon with a more realistic skin making them look creepy. Jessica Rabbit looks the same to me and Peter Griffin looks like Drew Carey but he kind of always did.

  • TheAwesome1

    patrick umm err yah im gunna have some weird nightmares tonight.. *shudders…i think that everone else isnt that scary except for patrick

  • mexican giant

    Agree with benny above me about Jessica Rabbit.

  • vegeta was interesting to say the least

  • dragontech64

    Jessica Rabbit still looks like a Toon, the rest, they just re-textured the Toons rather than try to make them look like they’d look as real people. The only ones that are convincingly unTooned are Popeye and Buzz Lightyear.

  • Nathan Forester

    I was kind of expecting Buzz to look like a mix of Bruce Campbell, Jay Leno, and Brendan Fraser because well…they all have a chin like Buzz’s. But I suppose you could use a photo of Bruce to do a live action/UnTooned Gaston. Also I figured that Peter would look more like John Candy.
