Cartoon Crowd Mural by Makinita

A perfect Memorial Day post… that crazy animator from south of the border, Makinita (aka Andres Silva), has painted the wall of his studio with this insane mural of all his favorite characters. You can click on the above image to see the full mural – and to see each character in detail, watch the 15-minute video below.

  • Jesper Soelberg

    Very cool! What fun it must be to have that on one’s wall. Love the devotion.

  • must have taken ages

  • Wait, there’s somebody BESIDES me who thinks the Fire Chief from Firedogs II is one of the most hilarious, and yet most under rated cartoon characters of all time?

    Makinta…are you my long lost brother?

    Quick! Listen to this song and tell me if it gets stuck in your head! It’s the only way!

  • haha, is that ralph bakshi?

    Some great unexpected characters included from such far ranging and almost forget shows including:

    The Schmoo
    Bump in the Night
    Peter Lorre caricature!
    “Fido Dido” from 7up!
    Count Duckula!
    The Noid!
    The Critic!

    California Raisins!
    Family Dog!
    Denver the Last Dinosaur!
    Rude Dog!
    The Dodo
    SNL Chicken

    Most surprising to see were:
    Capitol Critters!
    Galaxy Goof-ups!

    And….most of all
    The gators from Kissyfur! No one remembers KISSYFUR!!! ….WOW!

    As for the Muppets included:

    Muppet Show:
    Kermit The Frog, Scooter, Sam Eagle, Animal, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo & Camilla

    Sesame Street:
    Count von Count, Big, Bird, Oscar

    With a group this vast, I’m actually surprised Danger Mouse or Fish Police weren’t there.. or maybe they are and I didn’t notice…

    • Chris Sobieniak

      I’m sure there’s room to grow on this if he wants to continue adding more characters to the menagerie. Someone noticed a lack of Disney TV characters of the 80’s and 90’s as well as Tiny Toons in this piece. Even I forgot Kissyfur, but did wondered where those gators came from after seeing ’em. He certainly could add on more if he pleases.

    • tonma

      I wondered if those were the kissyfur gators but I dindn’t check hehe… great work on the list, but, WHERE ARE THE SKATEBIRDS?

      • C. Stulz

        the only Skatebird represented is the green one. he’s on the left side below Saty puff and the large superhero looking guy withe the “H” across his eyes next to the Tex Avery Wolf w/ the hat and the two bears.

      • C. Stulz

        He’s at 12:45 on the video

    • C. Stulz

      That should have been “almost forgotten shows.”

  • Paul M

    Any chance of getting a higher res image of this?

  • Dr.Truth

    This is amazing!! I’m blown away you included the guy from “The Head”. I thought I was the only one that remembered that long lost show!!! Great work.

  • Martin Juneau

    Andreas is a darn very good cartoonist. My first favourite artist when i join DeviantArt in 2005. At least he actually know what cartooning is, really. A very splendid job reunited the characters that most of us sure love without feel as a vulgar crossover fanart.

  • sebhary

    What is the name of the blue dog and red cat cartoon at 1:50min?

    • Chris Sobieniak

      Schnookums (cat) and Meat (Dog)

  • Johann Strauss II

    He had a Schmoo! He had a Schmoo! Also, did any of you guys check Eek! The Cat?
