and Jerry


They are classic cartoon characters as you have never seen them before。

1。 Bugs Bunny



One artist has re-created the childhood favorites to show how they might
look if they were elderly movie stars。

“What‘s up, doc?” Bugs Bunny is, perhaps, the most recognizable and
famous cartoon character。 Looney Tuneswere first created as lead-ins to
feature films。 Bugs first appeared as a rabbit with no name in 1938 in
“Porky’s Hare Hunt。” Tex Avery later named him Bugs Bunny after the
infamous West Coast mobster。 Decades later, Looney Tunes cartoons
became a Saturday morning staple。 Bugs Bunny is still tops。



Los Angeles-based animator and illustrator Andrew Tarusov has come up
with the series of drawings depicting the likes of Bugs and Lola Bunny
at 77 and Tom and Jerry at 66.

2。 Homer Simpson

and Minnie Mouse

Homer Simpson is known throughout the world。 Having been on TV for over
20 seasons, this patriarch is not the father who knows best, but he
certainly tries。 Homer Simpson is based on creator Matt Groening‘s
father, who is also named Homer。 And if you look at Homer’s profile,
a bit of his hair and his ear form the initials “M G。”

Tycoon: Mickey and Minnie Mouse don’t look poor in old age with each
wearing plenty of jewels。



3。 Mickey Mouse

black and white in 1928‘s Steamboat Willie, the first synchronized
sound cartoon。 Mickey Mouse was first voiced by Walt Disney, himself,
then later byJim MacDonaldand Wayne Allwine。 Mickey Mouse isn’t just a
cartoon character; he‘s an icon。

Taking it easy: The years have been kind to Bugs and Lola Bunny who are
aged 77 in this drawing of them。



The second favorite character from The Simpsonsis Bart。 His
catchphrases are “Ay caramba!” and “Eat my shorts!” He opens every
episode at the chalkboard,writing out a punishmentthat might say, “I
will finish what I sta。。。” He is a prankster, but a loyal friend and
brother。 We all knew a kid like Bart, and sometimes wished we were
like him。

after failing to have insurance。

staple became a holiday tradition。 The kid who never kicks the
football, whose dog is more popular than he is and who has a crush on
the red-headed girl steals our hearts every year with a variety of
cartoon specials。

Sylvester, now 73, looks a little worse for wear as he clutches a bottle
of something in a brown paper bag while tweety stands on his arm。

but none as easily and successfully as The Grinch。 How the Grinch Stole
Christmasanimates Dr。 Seuss‘ book about the grouchy green cave-dweller
who attempts to ruin Christmas for the Whos down in Whoville。 The
holiday special, starring Boris Karloff, first aired in 1966。 His
turn from selfish to selfless promotes the true meaning of Christmas。
