Watch this animator turn adult cartoons into your favorite kids classics


Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

If it was Butch Hartman’s way, it would be SpongeBob Belcher serving up a platter of burgers with Linda Star.

In a new video, the animator behind the Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom imagines what adult cartoons would look like if they took on the lives of our favorite kids cartoon characters.

In under six minutes, Hartman takes us through South Park, Futurama, BoJack Horseman, and more, transforming these biting adult comedies into the childish ‘toons of yesteryear.

Maybe in the future we can get a glimpse of the Power Puff Girls as Daria characters, or Rugrats as American Dad! Oh, the possibilities.
