Your Favourite ’90s Cartoon Characters As Drug Addicts
Paul Ribera took the most popular and fun characters from the most-loved cartoons of the ‘90s like Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo and the Powerpuff girls and decided to show us what things might look like if they were struggling with severe drug addictions.
Here’s what Ribera told about his impressively disturbing drawings: “My friends and I are fans of the movie ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ as well as the punkcore music scene and that stemmed my interest into the drug lifestyle. I, personally have been interested in the effects of drugs and what it does to people and, unfortunately, in the town I live in, it’s a way of life.”
The artist decided to blend the fun and happy life of cartoons with the harsh reality that he has faced every day for the past twenty years. “These cartoons are what I (and pretty much all kids of the ‘90s) used to watch and I thought… ‘Man, what if these people characters were from here?”
Take a look at the nightmarish alternative reality of ‘90s cartoon characters on drugs.
