Classic Video Game Protagonists As Wacky Cartoon Characters

What would those classic characters -- such as Jazz Jackrabbit, or Cool Spot above -- have looked if they were on TV, starring in Saturday morning shows? German comic artist Dirk Erik Schulz gives us the answer by reimagining 24 of them in that exact style.

Some of them don't ring a bell? Let me help, starting with the top left corner:

Jazz Jackrabbit, Willy from Rockin' Kats, Asha from Monster World, Jade and Pey'j from Beyond Good and Evil, Ristar, Kid Dracula, Zool, James Pond, ToeJam and Earl, Marina Liteyears from Mischef Makers, Bubsy, Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel, Tempo, Cool Spot, Aero the Acrobat, Bonk, Rocky Rodent, Boogerman, Plok, Manny Calavera from Grim Fandango, Sparkster from Rocket Knight Adventures, Klayman from Neverhood and Time Gal.

Someone played a lot of platformers around the SNES era!

    Man,I'd forgotten all about Zool.

    that boogerman is awesome :) also love the Starfy and cool spot.

    Some of the characters are already kind cartoony in style. But any day that references "Mischief Makers" is a good day in my books :D
