Ah, childhood - those glorious, easy-going, fun-filled times with no responsibilities and lots of cartoons.

But things change, and in a strange kind of way, these incredibly dark illustrations of our favorite cartoons represent that change.

Spongebob, Pikachu, Donald Duck, and more, all of them awesomely re-imagined and revamped by some of the internet's most talented illustrators. Some are sad, some are creepy, some are funny - all of them brilliant.
