You might have heard it said that everybody on planet Earth has a doppelgänger somewhere. Your clone might live in the same town as you, or they might live on the other side of the planet. Either way, they’re out there somewhere with your face. It’s a little bit disconcerting.
Some people are able to use this to their advantage. If you look like a very famous celebrity, for example, you can make a whole career out of impersonating them. There are certainly worse ways to earn your money, although your job will only last as long as their fame.
Looking like a cartoon, though, is something that far fewer people would be happy with. Nevertheless, it happens. We have a whole fifty people in this article who are dead ringers for animated characters. In some cases, we think they may even have been the inspiration for their cartoon copies!
Carl From ‘Up’
There are thousands of little girls out there who dream of looking like a Disney princess. They even cosplay as the characters, and go on expensive vacations to Disneyland dressed exactly like the princesses they idolize.
It’s far less likely that this man intentionally walks around looking just like Carl from ‘Up,’ but he’s one of the best cartoon lookalikes we’ve ever seen. It’s just a shame that the film is so sad; people probably burst into tears when they see him.
You won’t find many men who deliberately try to resemble Butt-Head from ‘Beavis and Butt-Head.’ We suspect it’s even less likely that you’ll find women or girls who want to look like the character, but here’s an exception.
Whether or not she naturally looks like Butt-Head, the expression she’s making with her face tells us that she’s doing it on purpose. We suppose if someone compares you to a famous character, you might as well embrace it. Good on her.
Flash from ‘Zootopia’
They say that all pet owners end up looking a little bit like their pets after a while. We haven’t heard anyone say that you start looking like an animated character if you watch the film they’re in too often, but we might have to start saying it now.
We suspect that this lookalike is just down to a case of bad timing in terms of when the picture was taken. The fact remains, though, that she really does look like Flash from ‘Zootopia.’
Princess Merida from ‘Brave’
If you’re going to look like an animated character, there are far worse options out there than ‘Brave’ character Princess Merida. She’s strong, she’s fierce, and as the name of the movie suggests, she’s brave.
Anybody with flaming red hair stands a chance of looking like Princess Merida, but the effect here is enhanced by the fact she wears her hair in curls. Factor in the eyes and the nose, and you’ve got a perfect match. Even the clothes are pretty similar!
Linguini from ‘Ratatouille’
‘Ratatouille’ is one of our all-time favorite movies. Whoever knew that a movie about rats invading a kitchen and messing around with all the food could be so cute? Also, who knew a character as cartoonish as Linguini could have a real-life counterpart?
This boy looks like he’s stretching his face as much as possible to make the resemblance work, but it’s definitely there. How far does the resemblance go? Does he have a pet rat as well?
Granny from ‘Looney Tunes’
Our younger readers might have to ask their parents about this one! If you’re of a certain age, you probably grew up watching the adventures of Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Pie on ‘Looney Tunes.’ The animals had an owner – the sweet-natured Emma Webster, also known as Granny.
Granny was such a stylized character that it was hard to imagine how she might look in real life, but now we know. Maybe there’s a lot of cat and bird food in those bags.
Mr. Burns from ‘The Simpsons.‘
Excellent. We don’t think it’s possible for anybody to look any more like an animated character than this man looks like the ultimate evil capitalist from ‘The Simpsons,’ Mr. Burns. It’s not just the hair – the shape of his head is identical.
Mr. Burns is a fictional character, and he’s an exaggeration of how super-rich businessmen behave in real life. Despite that, we’d still start running if this guy ever threatened to release the hounds.
Hiro Hamada from ‘Baymax’
Replicating the look of ‘Baymax’ star Hiro Hamada isn’t too difficult. You can find the clothes in most department stores, and you can even buy a plush star to help you out. This kid is on the next level, though.
The hairstyle isn’t just close to Hamada’s, it’s completely identical. He’s been able to perfectly replicate the smile as well. Is ‘Baymax’ real? Is this actually Hiro Hamada? We’re confused; this is like looking straight down the uncanny valley!
Gru from ‘Despicable Me’
It’s unlikely that there’s anyone out there who wants to look like the character of Gru from ‘Despicable Me.’ Unfortunately, though, male pattern baldness happens. Medical science hasn’t yet advanced to the point where it can be prevented.
Just going bald won’t leave you looking like Gru. People will only be a resemblance if you pick a wide, striped scarf, and wrap it around your neck just underneath your jawline. Either this guy is a big fan, or he’s never seen the film, and he’s completely oblivious.
Apparently, this guy didn’t realize that the character of Johnny Bravo was basically created to mock people exactly like him. Instead, he saw the character and decided that was exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up.
To his credit, he’s done a good job of it. He’s powerfully built, and he’s topped off the look with the same sunglasses, and the same hairstyle. He even skips leg day like his hero, too. That’s total commitment!
Elsa from ‘Frozen’
Some girls out there go to incredible lengths to look more like Elsa from ‘Frozen.’ Because of the success of the movie she stars in, she’s become the most iconic Disney princess of the past few decades.
Very few of the girls who attempt to copy her get the resemblance as close as the one in this picture – and she’s not even trying all that hard! Her hair isn’t blonde, but the face is a perfect match. The arched eyebrow and the little smirk seal the deal.
