Cartoon character mashups are both horrifying and hilarious

There's nothing we love more than a good old mashup, and one illustrator's new project takes the concept to new heights (as well as abominable lows). Dino Tomic's brilliant crossover cartoon characters project takes several beloved animated icons and blends them into something both alien and familiar at the same time.

The results are either horrifying or hilarious (or in some cases, both), seamlessly blending recognisable character design aspects from each subject to create something entirely new.
