    Wally Gator as a pimp is priceless.

     Love the art, and I would have loved to have seen them cleaned up and colored, but…

    I can’t say I’m surprised that AOL-Time-Warner-Globochem didn’t go for these.

       You should be surprised – look up Frank Kozik’s work from the early 90′s.  He made similar “interpretations” of Hanna Barberra work and did so with their full knowledge and permission.

      • WhyBother says:

        This was also with their full permission. At the same time, I think William is just expressing complete lack of surprise that they chose not to go with Yogi and Boo-Boo eating Ranger Smith, Betty Rubble in pasties, or the rest of the cheesecake for their promotional material. “Nice art, not the direction we want to go in for our advertizing, thanks and we’ll keep you in mind.” That sort of thing.

    Wow, these are great.

    Mitch!! Don’t try and tell me I blew my chance to ask you for a Judy Jetson?!

  6. William- I posted the ones that were picked to be made into finished paintings on my blog too. Feel free to take a peek-
