Ever Wonder What Bugs Bunny’s Skeleton Would REALLY Look Like?

If you enjoyed your holiday dinner as much as I did, you’re probably more than a little familiar with the skeletal remains of your Thanksgiving turkey. But have you ever wondered what the skeletons of other animals look like — specifically, cartoon animals?

South Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee sure has, and he’s sculpted a whole series of them out of resin, wire, and aluminum sticks. For his subjects, Lee’s taken some of the twentieth century’s most iconic animated characters, including Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, as well as Wile E. Coyote, the Roadrunner, Tom and Jerry, Tweety and Sylvester, Felix the Cat, Goofy and, of course, that wascally wabbit himself, Bugs Bunny. According to IFL Science, “Their exaggerated features were reconciled with the actual anatomy of their representative animal, yielding some pretty impressive results. The exhibition ‘Animatus’ was featured at the Natural History Museum in Basel, Switzerland in the summer of 2008.”

AS German anatomist Gunther von Hagens did with remains of real human bodies in his traveling exhibition “Body Worlds” (featured in the 2006 James Bond movie Casino Royale), Lee has captured his subjects in mid-motion, portraying each of them in their trademark actions — with Donald ranting, Wile E. Coyote chasing, Tom and Sylvester pouncing towards their prey, and Goofy being, well, goofy. Take a gander at Lee’s masterworks below.

    Pinky and the brain. Fog horn Leghorn. Snagglepuss. The king of the jungle even!

  4. mike says:

    Olaf doesn’t have a skull. Or bones.

  5. I do have one small problem with Tom and Jerry and that’s the fact that a mouse’s or rat’s tail does not actually contain bones.  So Jerry’s skeleton shouldn’t have a tail.  

  6. Yakko, Wakko, and Dot.

    everyone from hey arnold!

    Pink Panther

    Pokemon! All of them 

  10. Kristen says:

    Olaf clearly states in the movie he doesn’t have a skull or bones. He’s obviously just made of snow.

  11. Carla Phillips says:

    How about Gossamer from the Bugs Bunny cartoons?

    Marvin The Martian or Stewie Griffith
