Remember getting in to all those cartoon shows when you were a kid? You tend to not think about this now, but one thing you may not know is that they have all changed an awful lot since their debut. Since it was so long ago you tend not to see those changes, but thanks to the evolution of animation techniques, editing and technology as a whole, a lot of cartoon characters you know and love have actually gone through several substantial (in a good way) changes since their debut. Here’s a look at the most noticeable ones!
No matter what he looks like, he will always be one of our favorites!
2. Patrick’s complexion and shorts changed
3. Arthur certainly looks much better
4. Lisa Simpson’s hair seems a lot calmer now
We think it looks better.
5. Bart Simpson’s nightmarish appearance is long lost
6. Homer Simpson looks a lot better nowadays
He was actually giving me some pretty freaky vibes with his old appearance.
7. Marge looks a lot better too
Her hair will always stay iconic.
8. “The ghost of my past”
This is something of a literal phrase in the case of Cartman’s previous appearance.
9. Stan still has a ton of sadness in his eyes
10. Dora got better hair but less exciting pets
11. The Ninja Turtles have gone all CG and new age!
Their cel-shaded equivalents will always be more fondly remembered though.
12. Moonlight looks a lot better!
Scary to see how much the characters from My Little Pony have changed.
13. Twilight, meanwhile, appears to have found a new lease of life
14. Applejack has revitalized his hair
15. Charlie Brown has gone full CG!
16. And same with Snoopy
Doesn’t really feel the same as before, though.
