Skeletal Systems

A character study of 22 present and past cartoon characters

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


These Icons are usually grotesquely distorted from the human form from which they derive. Being that they are so commonplace and accepted as existing I thought I would dissect them like science does to all living objects - trying to come to an understanding as to their origins and true physiological make up. Possibly to better understand them and see them in a new light for what they are in the most basic of terms.

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.

The Hello Kitty examples at the beginning of the set give an idea of what each of the pieces look like. The rest of the examples are approximations using photoshop of the rest in the series. The pieces were two-part with a hinged, translucent overlay which, when lifted, revealed a line drawing of the skeleton underneath.

Okay is it wierd that the bio major among us thinks that'* really kinda cool. Although I don't get why Shmoo has collar bones, that bugs me. He has no arms, you think those would have evolved out since they are kinda useless.

:

I think we should really have a discussion as to the evolutionary tree of Shmoo, particularly pertaining to whether or not his collar bones should be vestigual or non-existent. :P
