More Christmas merriment to further tweak your need for alternative carols.

It’s by The Vestibules’ Christmas on Acid with visuals from most of your favorite holiday cartoons. Ahhh, nostalgia.

Untooning Update

I recently featured the photoshop work of pixeloo here at the Squirrel Queen’s palace. His reworking of Homer Simpson from yellow fellow to human flesh tones was amazing. He’s also reworked Sonic the Hedgehog and Jessica Rabbit with incredible skill.

Since then, Worth 1000 had a photoshop contest in which cartoon characters were revised into human form. The work is sharp and creative.

My favorites were Moe and half of the Beavis and Butthead tandem.

Human Homer Simpson

I love the yellow denizens of Springfield, that city that’s hard to pinpoint exactly on a map of the United States.

The Simpsons are the ultimate “nuclear” family and have been a source of inspiration and entertainment for many.

Digital artist Pixeloo has spent some time replacing Homer’s jaundiced complexion and making him a bit more human. It’s actually kind of creepy to see.

Bart’s dad isn’t the only one to get the Pixeloo treatment. He calls it “untooning” and he’s done Mario from the video game and he’s taken Jessica Rabbit from the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” to a full-flesh forum. Vavavoom.

At his site, you can see a video of how he transformed Jessica. It’s pretty fascinating stuff.

For something even a bit weirder, a fan of Pixeloo has animated the human Homer.

Will Ferrell aka Hair Bear

Has anyone else spotted the resemblance yet?

Will Ferrell is sporting one giant strawberry blonde afro as his latest comedic character Jackie Moon in the movie Semi-Pro.

He’s also promoting Old Spice antiperspirant as that same character in some funny commercials airing on ESPN this week.

This morning while I was laughing at him shilling the under arm aroma killer I was suddenly struck by a flashback to my kiddie cartoon past.

Ferrell’s Moon character is a dead ringer for the leader of the Hair Bear Bunch.

Twins, I tell you. Identical twins.
