Psycho Killer Fozzie Bear And The Cartoon Murderers You'll Never Forget

Psycho Killer Fozzie Bear And The Cartoon Murderers You'll Never Forget

Homer Simpson's never been so bad-ass as he is in his final moment.

It's the role of a lifetime for Fozzie Bear. He's waited for years to shake off this comedy thing and take on the serious roles he was born for, so when artist Daniel Luvisi offered him the chance to portray Javier Bardem's hitman Anton Chigurgh out of No Country For Old Men, he leapt at the opportunity. Pity about Gonzo, the Sean Bean of muppet-kind; but then he makes a pretty good corpse, so what can you do?

Luvisi, a concept artist and production designer from LA, has gone well off the deep end with some of this stuff. Homer as a bank robber, Grand Theft Auto - or maybe that should be Otto - style is almost mundane. Maybe a little Tarantino, but not batshit crazy. Then we get to Kermit in Drive, with Gonzo taking a dive again for the good of the show. OK, fine.

Then we have Mickey, Prince of Darkness.

Try getting that image out of your head at, say, 1 a.m., when half the world seems dead and the rest is hiding, just out of sight, waiting for you to spot it. Have fun!

Oh come on, I've seen two of these pieces from at least a year ago. This isn't news.

It's still damn good, though.

You left out the best one!

LuVisi is a great artist, there is no question of that. What we should ask ourselves is, does he go too far?

Also gotta say even with its slightly inconsistent universe and grammatical errors, I'm really looking forward to the first issue of LMS: Once Upon a Time in Amerika.

In Dutch, "kikker" means frog. The first thing I thought of ofcourse was the terrible pun "Kermit the Killer", before realizing that that doesn't work in English :(

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy alternate interpretations of characters, but why are they always so gory and violent?

Beats the hell out of the "Disney Princesses doing non Disney Princess things" trend we've had recently.

Because that's the only parallel that people can be bothered to come up with.

Now, Fozzie Bear the grandmother? THAT'S something I'd like to see.

"For three wonderful days, I got to experience what it was like to be a grandmother!"

WHAT THE F&*K WAS THAT IN THE LAST PICTURE AND WHY CAN'T I GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD!?!????
