I really want a Memento Mori Barbie now.

Poppin' Fresh is made solely of dough in most cases. Another issue is the lack of blood and musculature present, so baking him would yield very poor results.

Smiley is so damn wonderful.

Heh. I remember when Mad did these of newspaper comics! Neat stuff!

I think I've seen the concept before.

But these are very good, too.

Nerg...just realised that my comment sounds snide. I didn't mean it that way -- the OP is wonderful, but just tickled my memory a touch. And I've just realized that the previously link connects to some of the images I've linked to, as well.

These are fun. I want to see his baked potato.

All art is theft with a thin wash of self-conceit; it's all cool.

jrochest, thanks for those links to other skeletons-of-cartoon-characters. I've appreciated those artists for years now and that's why I was delighted to see a new generation of this concept by another artist. It's such a cool idea. I love Freeny's use of whatever that material he uses to make the dissections and that he makes them inside the toy itself, colorfully.

The Mad version was called "The Anatomy of the Human Body Based on the Comics," though google seems to be down for me and Mad seems to have aggressively removed any evidence of prior novelty or humor, so that kids will be forced to think that the current incarnation is as good as it ever got.
