Kev Craven's Rubber Hose Remakes

Rubber hose animation is an animation style that arose in the 1930s, named for the characters' long rubbery limbs that bend in an exaggerated comic manner. The term became a catchall for the early animation style that so many cartoonists used. Younger people today might call it "Cuphead style."   

Artist Kev Craven draws in many different styles, including rubber hose vintage style. Lately, he's been redesigning modern cartoon characters in rubber hose style. Of course you recognize Samurai Jack at the top, and Cow and Chicken from the late '90s cartoon above. And this is what Johnny Bravo would look like if he were in an early Popeye cartoon.

You can see the process of Craven creating these characters in videos featuring Phineas and Ferb, Ren and Stimpy, and even Spider-Man. Follow Craven's artwork at Instagram. He's asking for suggestions on which modern characters should be given the rubber hose treatment. -via Boing Boing
