Cartoon skeletons

This is cool yet random and kind of freaky at the same time: Skeletal Systems of Cartoon Characters.

Animation was the format of choice for children's television in the 1960s, a decade in which children's programming became almost entirely animated. Growing up in that period, I tended to take for granted the distortions and strange bodies of these entities.

I decided to take a select few of these popular characters and render their skeletal systems as I imagine they might resemble if one truly had eye sockets half the size of its head, or fingerless-hands, or feet comprising 60% of its body mass.

I like Charlie Brown's skeleton a lot, but nothing there is quite as alien and disturbing as Buttercup's (the Powerpuff Girl) skeleton. And this is cool: "Twenty-two of these are currently on show at Stumptown Coffee/Belmont in Portland, Oregon the month of December 2004." I wish I had time to see them since we're in Portland right now, but oh well.
