24 Famous Cartoon Characters Who Are Secretly Living Among Us.
Have you ever wonder where cartoonists and artists get their inspiration? Whether it be for a comic book, cartoon series, or animated film — how do they come up with these characters? Do they randomly decide the details like the hair style and color, facial features, and outfits? Or do they base their characters off of real life people?
It's hard to answer these questions as every artist works differently and finds inspiration from different sources. Be that as it may, no matter where artists pull their inspiration from, we always seems to run into doppelgängers of these cartoon characters in real life! It's hard to believe some animated characters aren't originally based on these people.
