(Note to self: Maybe I shouldn’t have posted this so soon after Shanoah’s LSD post…)

So I’m looking for a song for today’s post and I happen across something called “Untooning Jessica Rabbit”. Now, I must admit that I have a thing for Jessica Rabbit, so I clicked on it.

This is why “Untooning Jessica Rabbit” is your neat thing today. This is the first hour of the process, sped up by six to fit into 10 minutes. (By the way, the guy/girl/entity/multipersonality hivemind behind this, pixeloo, put this up on April 21, less than two weeks ago… and it’s already gotten over 300,000 views)

For those of you with no patience…

Jessica Rabbit Untooned

Now if they’d only untoon La Blue Girl, huh?

By the way, this isn’t the first toon that Pixeloo has untooned. Accoring to his/her/its/their blog, he/she/it/they have also done Homer Simpson and Mario from Mario Brothers. It’s an interesting exercise, and shows just how deformed cartoon characters really are (especially Homer… yeesh). Michael Paulus did something similar when he tried to reproduce the skeletal systems of famous cartoon characters. The results are… interesting.

Interestingly, out of all the characters untooned by Paulus and Pixeloo, Jessica Rabbit comes out looking the least deformed (at least from the neck up. From the neck down, well…). The eyes are a little big, the lips a little pouty and the eyes a little elfin, but I wouldn’t kick her out of bed. I guess we guys like it strange, but not too strange… which is probably why Pixeloo stopped just above Jessica’s bust.

On that note, Pixeloo is apparently going to untoon Stewie Griffin from Family Guy next. That’s right, Stewie the original hydrocephalitic baby. To mangle Stephen Lynch: “Damn, that’ll be an ugly baby!
