You may be not famous but when your cartoon counterpart is getting attention from the world, that’s just everything. It’s like sharing the spotlight with a non-fictional character.
It may be hard to believe but there are lots of cartoon characters that were either inspired from the attributes of real people or may have been accidentally designed by animators, only to find that there’s someone out there who actually look like those characters!
Here are some of the most on point human counterparts of cartoon characters.
Carl Fredricksen from Up
This old man bears an uncanny resemblance to Carl Fredricksen, a lonely widower who wanted to fulfill his promise to his dead wife, from the movie “Up.” It is obvious in the shape of this actual man’s face, the nose and those glasses that he is the real-life embodiment of the said cartoon character. Perhaps the only difference is their hair color and hair style.
Cartman from “Southpark”
He may be facing sideways but the similarities are clear enough to recognize. His stature, color of his sweater and the choice of cap makes this man looks like Cartman from Southpark.
Ned Flanders from “The Simpsons”
Their hair, mustache, eyeglasses, and sweaters are so similar, you would think this man crawled out of the TV from an episode of “The Simpsons”.
Rusell from “Up”
This young kid looks just like Russell from “Up”, a wilderness explorer boy scout who wanted to help Mr. Fredricksen in his quest to reach “Paradise Falls” in South America. With this kid’s bag, cap and shirt, it’s easy to see he’s got the tools (and the guts) to hunt some snipe in your backyard.
Who would have thought that a real-life Shrek really exists? Just don’t mind the ears, it could be very unusual for a human being to have ears like Shrek’s.
Alfredo Linguini from “Ratatouille”
He’s just so happy posing with his cartoon version. He could be another chef to watch out for in the neighborhood.
Meg Griffin from “Family Guy”
In person, she’s a little friendlier than her cartoon counterpart.
Peter Griffin from “Family Guy”
If cartoon characters could suddenly pop up into reality, this is probably how Peter Griffin would look like IRL.
Dora in “Dora the Explorer”
It appears that Dora’s human version isn’t so pleased with her cartoon counterpart. Better call Diego and Boots and get this adventure started to perk her up.
Boo from “Monsters Inc.”
No one can reject this idea because this little girl looks just like the ever adorable Boo from “Monsters Inc.” The significance is uncanny!
