the power of strong designs

August 19th, 2008


Even at a small size,  the silhouettes of all the cartoon characters should be recognizable…which in itself is an amazing feat…for the characters, and your brain!

This is becasue our eyes strip down everything we see into its most basic elements on a daily basis without even thinking about it.  Mickey Mouse isn’t a mouse who wears red shorts.  Our mind remembers him as a circle with two smaller circles on top.  Just to visualize, we can dress him up in any colors or attire we desire and nobody would ever mistake him for anyone else.

So outside of Mickey Mouse, how many of the characters can you name?

    I can almost name them all, except for the 1st four characters on the last bottom row (from left to right). Otherwise, I can name the rest.

    Actually I take it back, I know Betty Boo is the first one on the last row, so 3 characters I can’t name.
