Ah, there’s nothing better than occasionally catching an episode of your favorite childhood cartoon. But, what if the characters on the show grew older as time passed, instead of just wearing the same clothes and staying child-like forever?

Well, they’d probably look a lot like these illustrations of updated cartoon characters created by artist Isaiah Stephens.

In this awesome photo series, Stephens brought it back to our favorite 90s cartoons like “Hey Arnold!,” “Recess,” and the “Rugrats.”

This project demonstrates realistic growth, maturity and change. Would you rather your favorite cartoons stay the same age forever, or grow old with you? Check them out below for a closer look!

‘Hey Arnold!’


‘Rugrats’


‘Rocket Power’


‘Recess’


‘Wild Thornberrys’


‘South Park’


‘The Powerpuff Girls’


‘Dexter’s Laboratory’

It’s not the kind of festival you’re thinking about. There aren’t really any neon-colored beads or drugs. The annual International Highline Meeting festival takes place across the Italian Alps in Monte Piana and serves more as an adventurous camping trip than as a “festival.” In order to call this event “adventurous,” the organizers would have to think […]
