If you grew up watching anime and cartoons you probably had a pretty great childhood. However, watching said TV shows while at the same time going through the changes of life can create some interesting results. Admit it, you have all had a cartoon or anime crush in your lifetime. Whether it be full blown head over heels infatuation, or just a small passing interest, we've all been there. So don't fret!
Some characters are drawn with a skimpy enough outfit or beautiful enough physiques to inspire embarrassing and downright morally wrong feelings of lust. On the other hand, some characters are created with enough charm to steal the hearts of millions. While some fans are content to simply watch and enjoy, others are obsessed enough to be compelled to draw those characters to life on their own. Sometimes they are drawn innocently, with no ulterior motives other than pure enjoyment. Other times, however, the more ambitious fans find themselves creating fan art of characters in more raunchy positions or clothing as well as oversized body parts. Needless to say, these are works not suitable for PG-13 audiences.
Whatever the case may be, some of this fan art is too much or too revealing to be seen by most. This list will cover 25 times fan art went too far for the mass public.
24 A Wongderful Kind Of Girl
Futurama is an incredibly successful and internationally well-received comedy, science-fiction adult cartoon created by Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons. While the series hosts a wacky, fun, and at times, naughty group of characters, there are also some characters with large amount of appeal. Amy Wong is no exception. The character is voiced by Lauren Tom who has an impressive CV that includes numerous classics such as Friends, Pinky and the Brain, Dexter’s Laboratory, Kim Possible, Teen Titans, and much, much more! In an interview, Lauren Tom comments enthusiastically and positively regarding her character’s appetite and numerous relationships in the show. While the series itself has many crazy plot lines, some fan art is a little too “exciting” for younger audiences. At least this one doesn't feature tentacles.
23 Gone Cheeky For Chi-Chi
One of the most beloved and longest-running anime series of all time, Dragon Ball Z was widely adored by fans for its action-packed storyline, unique and interesting cast of characters, and powerful female icons. One of those most important icons is none other than Chi-Chi, the wife of the main character, Goku. It seemed that no matter how many evil villains the hardworking hero could defeat, he was always putty under the hands of his wife and she could always put him in his place. While Chi-Chi was more of a minor character and was never portrayed so revealingly in the anime (especially in the North American release), some fan artists took liberties of their own to draw their fantasies to life.
22 No Man Would Need 5 Seconds To Get To This Mars
An all-time classic anime that will never be forgotten is Sailor Moon. An internationally successful series that featured female heroes, Sailor Moon was adapted from a shojo manga series written by Naoko Takeuchi. The anime was broadcast by Toei Animation in Japan in the 1990’s. One of the all-time fan-favorite characters from the series would have to be Sailor Mars, who is more often cosplayed than the main character, Sailor Moon, herself. Sailor Mars’ real name in the series is Hino Rei, and was renamed Raye/Rei Hino in some English dubs of the anime. Sailor Mars worked as a shrine maiden when she was discovered by Sailor Moon, and the two had a rocky relationship in the beginning of the series, often arguing about petty things. In time, Sailor Mars would grow more loyal to her leader and would eventually become a timeless anime icon.
21 Going A Lilo Too Far
Lilo and Stitch is an animated movie produced by Disney about an alien, Stitch, who crash-lands in Hawaii and meets Lilo. The two become the best of friends and have adventures and misadventures which add-up into a fun-loving tale about family and friendship. The movie garnered enough success to lead to two sequels: Stitch! The Movie, and Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch, as well as a television series on the Disney Channel and ABC Kids. Being a Disney film as well as a children’s animated program, there is nothing sensual about the characters, especially considering Lilo is a little girl in the film and series. But some fan artists chose to reimagine the child characters as fully-developed young adults, drawing the two characters dancing together, but too-close-for-comfort in many eyes.
20 Nuts for The Peanuts
There is arguably no Western cartoon more classic, more iconic, and timeless than Peanuts. Originating as a comic strip by Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts originally ran from the 1950s to the early 2000s, with reruns published afterward. Peanuts has had countless tv appearances, specials, and feature films dating from the late 1950s all the way to the present with the most recent film being The Peanuts Movie, which was released in 2015. The franchise has an unforgettable cast of characters that have become globally known, with merchandise sold in virtually every developed country in the world. Almost everyone knows Snoopy and Charlie Brown, but two less popular characters are Peppermint Patty and Marcie. Marcie has the quirk of always calling Peppermint Patty “Sir”, which inspired this grown-up version fan art of the two.
19 Candid Candace
Phineas and Ferb is about two young stepbrothers, Phineas & Ferb, and their summer vacation adventures. The two boys are often joined by Perry, their pet platypus, and the villain of the show, Dr. Doofenschmirtz. Furthermore, the brothers’ sister Candace and their neighbour Isabella also make frequent appearances. The show had great success leading to 222 episodes, airing from 2007 – 2015, as well as full-length film adaptations. Being on the Disney channel, the characters are nothing but cute, silly, and funny. Although it may be fun to reimagine these characters as adults, sometimes imagination goes too far. In this particular fan art, Candace shows off a bit more than we're used to!
18 I'd Hate To Be Her Son!
The Weekenders, created by Doug Langdale, is an animated series about a group of four middle schoolers and the adventures and shenanigans they get into during their weekend lives away from school. The four main characters, Tino, Lor, Carver, and Tish all had their own unique personalities and quirks providing for a well-rounded story and consistently fresh episodes. The main protagonist and most frequent narrator of the show, Tino Tonitini, lives with his mother who is always referred to as Ms. Tonitini and is never given a first name. She is portrayed as wise, yet young-spirited which inspired this particular fan artist to highlight her bodacious figure in a skimpy outfit. Although many men would love to spend a weekend with her, one thing’s for sure: I’d hate to be her son!
17 A JOYful Hospital Visit
Pokémon is one of the most beloved anime series in history. Its success has spawned numerous seasons, sagas, and specials with 992 episodes and counting! There have been 21 movies to date and over 100 video games released from console games to mobile games (Pokémon GO), and even card games. A curious and comical choice on the writers part was to have every Pokemon Center (hospital) run by Nurse Joys. Yes, that’s JoyS, plural. In Pokémon these nurses are all part of the same family whose family name is Joy. Why they are all exactly the same age and look exactly the same is never really explained other than them being from the same family. They all have the same hair and cute facial features that make Nurse Joy a guilty pleasure of many fan artists.
16 She'd Definitely "Make A Man Out Of You"
Mulan is a 1998 Disney film that was highly claimed and adored by many for its great visuals, interesting story and powerful female lead role. The film did very well grossing $304 million dollars worldwide. Also, on Rotten Tomatoes it received a freshness rating of 86% and Roger Ebert gave the film 3.5/4 stars in his review. In the film, Mulan (voiced by Ming-Na Wen and sung by Lea Salonga) was portrayed as a family-devoted young girl, who only wished to fight for her country in her father’s place to keep him from harm. She was caring, kind, ferocious, and beautiful, a Disney idol that many young girls and boys would grow to look up to. This particular artist took their liberties with Mulan’s chest, showing her in an exposed position a little too much for child audiences.
15 I'd Love To Be The First Man On That Moon
As mentioned previously, Sailor Moon was adapted from a shojo manga series written by Naoko Takeuchi. Set in Minato, Tokyo, Japan, a girl by the name of Usagi Tsukino meets a magical talking black cat named Luna, who gives her the power to become Sailor Moon, a hero destined to protect the Earth from evil. It may sound cheesy and generic as far as anime stories go, but this series was adored by fans worldwide and each sailor charmed the hearts of millions of admirers for their strength in battle, as well as their cute and sexy personas. By 2012, over 35 million copies of the manga had been sold worldwide. This artist chose to show our heroine in her downtime.
14 Play Me A Song, Piano Man
Another less-known yet major character in the Peanuts franchise is Shroeder, the Peanuts gang’s house pianist. As seen in the comic and the television series, Shroeder has an immeasurable and undying passion for classical music and Ludwig Van Beethoven in particular. Comically enough, the character's piano is merely a toy piano, yet he can still perform great melodies on its keys. Another important character trait is his refusal and repeated rejection of Lucy Van Pelt’s (another major character) infatuation for him. In this particular depiction, the artist portrayed the two friends as more than mere children. In their high school forms, it’s hard to imagine Shroeder resisting her for much longer.
Another character from the Pokémon anime series, Misty is one of the 3 most prominent characters in the first season of the show. She makes her first appearance in the first episode, Pokémon, I Choose You! Making quite a loud introduction, Misty and the main character of the series, Ash, butt heads in their first meeting when Ash steals and then totals her bike. However, as the series progressed the two became closer and closer and at times offering hints of romantic chemistry between them. Misty could be seen always sporting the same short denim shorts with red suspenders and a skimpy yellow tank top that showed just enough skin to get young boys excited. Unavoidably, she became the victim of numerous fan art depictions, and boy does she look good!
12 The Rings Around Saturn
Another character from the hit Sailor Moon anime, Sailor Saturn is a hidden gem among the other Sailor heroines. With her cute face and short bangs she became the envy of many young girls and the desire of many men. Her real name in the series is Hotaru Tomoe and she is more than meets the eye. With her beautiful appearance also comes incredible and dangerous power. Sailor Saturn is one of, if not the most powerful Sailor in the series. She has both the power to destroy entire planets and also the ability to reset life cycles of evolution. Her popularity inspired numerous fan depictions like the one above, which portrays her a little too aggressively for younger audiences.
11 One-Eyed Beauty
Also from the hit Matt Groening series, Futurama, Leela or Turanga Leela is the main love interest of the protagonist, Fry. Leela is a cyclops, the captain of the Planet Express delivery service, and an all around awesome girl. She’s a powerful female character with both a sweet side, a vulnerable side, and a ferocious side. Although the writers of Futurama often put the characters into provocative and downright over-the-top situations (see season 3, episode 1, Amazon Women in the Mood), some fan artists strive to take that even further. Just do a quick Google search, and you'll see what I mean.
10 The Girls Are All Grown Up
Arthur is a beloved American/Canadian animated show in which all the characters are modeled after a certain animal. Arthur, the protagonist of the story, is a part of a family of aardvarks, but their animalistic traits are never mentioned (probably too meta for kids). The series was based off of picture books written and illustrated by Marc Brown. The show follows Arthur, his family, and his friends as they go through the adventures and mishaps of elementary school and all the important lessons they learn along the way. Needless to say, depicting all the innocent female characters grown up and sleeping is a quick way to ruin a beloved childhood show.
9 A Whole New World Of Jasmine
When many think of Disney, Aladdin is one of the first movies that comes to mind. With a timeless rags-to-riches tale following a "street rat" named Aladdin, the hit international Disney film would be remembered by many generations for years to come. The film has many memorable characters besides Aladdin himself, Genie for instance, played by Robin Williams or the villain, Jafar, played by Jonathan Freeman. However, Jasmine, played by Linda Larkin and sung by Lea Salonga, is one Disney princess that will never be forgotten. Although Princess Jasmine already wore quite a revealing outfit in the film, some fans weren't quite satisfied with it and had to take matters into their own hands, creating a jaw-dropping version of Jasmine that every man would want to start a whole new world with.
8 Not So Grimm Adventures
The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy is a cartoon comedy series about The Grim Reaper, called "Grim" in the show and the friends Billy and Mandy. Billy is a bit of an airhead who often gets himself in trouble with his brainless, happy-go-lucky attitude. On the other hand, Mandy is a cynical, cold-hearted girl offering a strong and humorous contrast. Grim, their supernatural friend by obligation also has funny quirks that include a Jamaican accent, and his unfortunate situation of having to fulfill the children’s every wish after losing a bet. The show ran over eighty episodes and sparked a video game adaptation by Midway Games. Mandy, a sassy little girl was reimagined in a softer, more girly way and in this drawing, placed in a submissive position.
7 A Nice StarFIRE To Keep You Warm
Published by DC Comics, Teen Titans is a hit comic series that was adapted many times into multiple cartoon series. The 2003 series followed mainly Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy, and the subject of this article, Starfire. The series churned out over 60 episodes with numerous Annie Award nominations. The story is set in Jump City, a fictional city in which the teen superhero team combats all forms of criminal conduct, keeping the peace in the city. Also, they must deal with their own struggles of being a teenager and their own mutual relationships. Although the animation is not so detailed, Starfire and Raven’s costumes both show a bit of skin, leaving the more testosterone filled fans to imagine things they shouldn’t, which eventually led to this fan art.
6 A Different Kind Of Springfield
The Simpsons is one of the longest running and most loved cartoon comedies of all time. Created by Matt Groening, the show follows the Simpson family in their daily lives, adventures and mishaps. The show has been running for around thirty right years with over 620 episodes and counting, with not signs of slowing down either! The show has also been the subject of controversy in terms of its uncanny ability to accurately predict the future. Many people claim that Matt Groening is a time traveller who predicted Trump’s Inauguration into office, the Ebola outbreak, and many more. Lisa is a short Brainiac/musician/activist that always seems to step on others toes, but re-imagined into a steamy young adult, this is one Simpson that’ll turn heads.
5 Sandy Squirrelish
Perhaps one of the longest running Nickelodeon cartoon series of all time, SpongeBob SquarePants has been running for over 17 years! The show has had over 220 episodes and has generated a whopping 13 billion dollars in retail merchandise revenue alone! The show takes place in the fictional ocean-floor city of Bikini Bottom and follows the adventures of the protagonist, SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends and coworkers. One of these friends is Sandy Cheeks, a squirrel who lives underwater using an astronaut-like wet suit. Sandy is portrayed as cute, always cheerful and incredibly powerful. Although this artist's real-life adaptation would surely turn heads, this humanoid representation is far from the Sandy Cheeks fans have grown to love.
4 Too Grown Up
Now, when it comes to cartoons or TV in general it is difficult to think of any show more innocent and lighthearted than Rugrats. The series follows the baby adventures of Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil, Angelica and Tommy’s brother Dil. The plot revolves around the children’s daily lives and the crazy adventures the children come up with using their wild and vivid imaginations. The children’s parents are usually clueless as the what the children do, and often lose track of them. The show had moderately high success with just over 170 episodes, as well as a few films and a sequel series "All Grown Up". Given that Angelica was a baby on the show, this fan-made photo really shows a different side of the girl than we're used to.
3 The Babysitter
Produced by Nickelodeon, Fairly OddParents follows the adventures of Timmy Turner, a ten-year-old boy who’s parents often pay him no attention and leave him at the evil hands of his babysitter, Vicky, who is the femme fatale of this particular fan artist’s depiction. The plot of the show is incited by the appearance of two “fairy godparents” who come from an entire race of fairy godparents. These characters, Cosmo and Wanda appear to grant Timmy’s every wish in order to improve his lonely struggle-filled life. As the main antagonist, Vicky was the prime cause of a lot of Timmy’s angst. With her role as the antagonist coupled with the common attractive babysitter trope, it is easy to understand the inspirations of this adaptation.
2 What's The Sitch?!
Kim Possible is one of the most popular animated series ever to hit the Disney Channel in America or Family Channel in Canada. Her famous ringtone will forever bring on bouts of nostalgia and her famous line "what's the sitch" will always be remembered by fans everywhere. The voice of Kim is Christy Carlson Romano, first made popular by her role on Even Stevens. With her powerful and agile abilities, Kim is bound to have a beautiful physique leaving the more advanced fans to let their imaginations run wild with thoughts. Some of these fans are compelled to draw Kim in rather non-Disney situations. No complaints here!
1 Looney For Lola
Now when we think of Saturday morning cartoons, for must of us the pinnacle and canonical series that springs up is The Looney Tunes. With a vast variety of international icons such as: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, the Tasmanian Devil, and much much more, the series has garnered incredible success and has forever secured its place in the cartoon canon. But let's focus on Lola Bunny. As the love interest of Bugs Bunny, Lola has her charm and beauty and as much as a cartoon bunny can create, physical appeal. However some artists have taken their depictions to the extreme, creating more grown up versions of the lovable Lola, causing many to be in the awkward position of being into a cartoon rabbit.
