Betty Boop, Post Mortem

A while back, I discovered a website that offered a look at the skeletal structures of popular animated characters. It’s the creation of a twisted genius yclept Michael Paulus, and it is well worth a visit.

This morning, Samantha Burns wrote a post about the site...a happy reminder.

Looking at the skeletons of cartoon characters reminds us that all of us, yea, even cartoons, are mortal. I have often speculated that on the sad day when Mickey Mouse shuffles off this Worldly Coil, as he inevitably must, his hearse will be a PT Cruiser.

I guess it would have been a waste of time to post a picture of the skeleton of Skeletor. I mean, what would be the point?
