Can You Recognize Them All?

A good illustrator can capture the essence of a person or a character without having to make the illustration look exactly like the person it is based on. And this is precisely what Anna Rettberg has done in the following illustrated mashup of popular television characters from various shows.

Check them out — isn’t it amazing how these characters can be immediately recognized with the use of one prop, a certain pose, and/or facial expression?

That, or I watch wayyyy too much TV. :-P

Can you recognize them all? I will post the answers as the first comment to this post!

    Also, the dog is sorta supposed to look like the dog from Frasier, and the cat is sorta like the one from Sabrina

  2. Huh…so of the TV shows I watch, I got all of them…except for the guy from Chuck. I don’t watch that show, so I thought it was Jim Halpert :)

  3. First reaction to Walter from breaking bad was ‘is that Gordon Freeman??’ Followed by, ‘did I miss another new show….’

  4. heehee.. Liz Lemon and Dwight were the one’s that popped out for me. There are definitely many that I don’t recognize though. I’m a pop culture failure.

  5. I got all of them except Walter from Breaking Bad (stopped watching it after the first season), and didn’t know Sheldon’s name but knew it was the guy from The Big Bang Theory. Love this!

  6. g lee:

  7. Wow – I watch A LOT of TV and hardly got any of them! Liz Lemon was the first one I recognized though :)
