Cartoon characters make for great Halloween costumes; they’re bright, colorful and they give you permission to look as goofy as possible. But why do us live-action humans get to have all the fun? Surely, the cartoons also love dressing up as their favorite pop culture characters. But we rarely get a glimpse into their Halloween adventures beyond a 30 minute special broken up by annoying commercials.
To remedy that situation — and revel in their animated costume flare — Moviefone has teamed up with our favorite artist Dennis Culver to create a spooktacular costume gallery, showing off our favorite cartoon characters and their choice Halloween ensembles. Because even when you’re the mascot for Disney, you still deserve one night a year to dress up like a slasher movie freak.
Check out our gallery of cartoon characters’ trick-or-treating adventures, featuring favorites from the silver screen and saturday morning, dressed as monsters, heroes and more!
Snoopy as the Driver from ‘Drive’
Here’s the kid imagining he’s behind the wheel, where there’s nothing he can’t do.
Lisa and Bart Simpson as Gizmo and Stripe from ‘Gremlins’
First of all, keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight, it’ll kill him. Second, don’t give him any water, not even to drink. But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight.
Betty Boop as ‘Black Swan’
I just want to be perfect. Boop-boop-de-doop-oop!
Bobby Hill as ‘Thriller’-era Michael Jackson
‘Cause this is fruit pie, fruit pie night — And no one’s gonna save theirs from the kids that take a bite!
Jem as Quorra from ‘TRON: Legacy’
Truly, truly, truly outrageous!
Mickey Mouse as Freddy Krueger
Sweet dreams kiddies!
Daria as ‘Beetlejuice’
Ah. Well, I attended Highland High, I’m a graduate of Lawndale, I watch TV quite extensively, I lived through the 90s and had a pretty good time during that. I’ve seen ‘Sick Sad World’ about a hundred and sixty-seven times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time I see it. Not to mention the fact that you’re talking to a dead girl… now what do you think? You think I’m qualified?
