Cartoon Characters All Grown Up

Ever wondered what your favorite cartoon character would look like if they grew up? How a famous comic book hero would be drawn if they grew old? Here are a few artists’ designs showing grown up cartoon and comic characters.


Adult Calvin and Hobbes

Bill Watterson’s lovable comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes, is based on the imaginative adventures of a young American boy, Calvin, and his stuffed tiger toy, Hobbes. The comic has inspired a wealth of fan art, from manga drawings and digital paintings to stuffed toys and Calvin and Hobbes tattoos. The images below show the original comic strip characters as youngsters, and an artist’s rendition of the two friends as adults; a man and his imaginary tiger.

Lilo and Stitch; Woman and Beast

Walt Disney’s feature film Lilo and Stitch focused on the friendship that forms between a Hawaiian girl, Lilo, and the nearly indestructible space monster, Stitch. In the kids’ movie, Stitch is portrayed as being creepy but cute. In the the second picture below, he is shown as an adult monster, not as cute as the original character design. Lilo is shown as a beautiful, exotic young woman.
