Tycho looks a disturbing amount like Peter Krause.

"Tycho looks a disturbing amount like Peter Krause."?

It might be. They are made with other people's features. video

The Beavis one (linked at "new") literally made me shudder.

I like Jessica Biel's version better. The Stewie one is unsettling, but I certainly wouldn't mind seeing Lois untooned. I assume they would simply substitute a picture of Barbara Streisand with red hair, though.

I believe the picture you're looking for is over here.

I predict that by the time I finish typing this sentence, the Rule 34 effect will have already ensured that thousands of web pages based on the untoonifying concept exist.

*goes off to look*

Isn't that the point of the whole attempt? Starting with Homer and Mario, the cartoony proportions are made to look realistic (natural lighting and life-like materials, instead of cel shading). For example, the Pink Panther un-tooned doesn't look like THE Pink Panther, but a panther colored pink-ish with well-known comic accessories.

I'm looking out the porthole of an Alvin submarine on an expedition to chart the depths of the uncanny valley.

I remember being viscerally frustrated as an eleven-year-old that Jessica Rabbit was just a cartoon (as if I'd be in any better shape if she wasn't).

I really don't need the untooned or the Jessica Biel versions in my psyche.

Reminded me of these, which are also good for a disturbing effect.

I agree Jessica Biel is smoking but the side boob is kinda weird looking in this picture. I demand a better one!
